$20 for $40 Worth of Upscale Italian Dinner Cuisine and Drinks
The dinner menu includes calamari fritti ($9) and entrees such as penne alla bolognese ($15.95), veal marsala ($21.95), and a 10-ounce filet mignon in butter-garlic sauce ($29.95).
Subtle flavors pair with an elegant ambiance inside Trattoria Toscana's new Gravois Road location. Beneath framed prints of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and other Italian landmarks, the tops of high bar chairs taper out like the shoulders of an evening gown. White tablecloths are creased in evenly pressed squares and hold plates of authentic Italian pastas and chicken, veal, and seafood sautéed in delicate wine sauces. Amid the gray-stippled walls, diners can question the manager about reserving a 75-person private party or rally the servers, busboys, and bartenders into a philosophical discussion on what it's like to be one who waits.
