The chefs at the casually upscale Tuscany Ristorante fork over authentic Italian cuisine by the aromatic bowlful, including prime dry-aged steaks and decadent house-made desserts. The restaurant's dinner menu delivers a refreshingly traditional selection of meats, including the petti di pollo con asparagi e gorgonzla—tender chicken breast sautéed with a medley of asparagus, white wine, and gorgonzola cheese ($22.95). Pasta and risotto entrees showcase carb sculptures fit for a European museum, such as the rich rigatoni Boccelli ($17.95), which, like most marble statues, comes doused in pancetta and light vodka sauce. The lunch menu manifests simpler offerings, such as paninis filled with sausage, onions, and peppers ($13.95), and creative creations, such as ravioli stuffed with lobster meat in a brandy-cream sauce ($17.95). Like a florescent lobster bib, a selection from Tuscany Ristorante’s wine list pairs well with any cuisine.
