Tuscany Ristorante Italiano’s classic Italian lunch and dinner menus draw on ingredients such as homemade mozzarella, fresh basil, and fire-roasted peppers to enliven traditional pastas, chicken and veal entrees, and paninis. Midday patrons can dig their forks into the mellenzane ripieno’s mingling of oven-baked spinach, ricotta, and eggplant ($8.95), or marvel as the flounder francese thwarts convention and swims downstream through a river of white wine, lemon, and butter sauce ($10.95). Alternatively, an evening nibbler of fired calamari can dunk golden ringlets into zesty marinara sauce ($7.95) or feast on a bowl of rigatoni boscaiola peppered with chunks of sausage, roasted peppers, and fresh mushrooms ($12.95).
Tuscany Ristorante Italiano
If the murals in Tuscany Ristorante Italiano's romantic dining room didn't tip you off to the eatery's Italian influence, the scents coming from the kitchen would. In there, chefs sauté Gulf shrimp, cuts of veal, and fillets of fish before tossing them with the house's pasta and sauces. They also craft traditional thin-crust pizzas using their own freshly made dough, basil, and natural cheese to capture traditional Italian flavors. The shop opens its doors from breakfast onward and begins building light breakfast dishes as well as bistro sandwiches and salads that burst with spinach, grilled chicken, and goat cheese, just like a farmer's piñata.
