Contrary to popular belief, when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a lawsuit. Enjoy Italian cuisine without fear of physical reprisal with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of Italian cuisine at Tuscana West.
Tuscana West 's chefs draw from an extensive menu of classic Italian cuisine, whipping up handmade pastas, gourmet pizzas, and hearty entrees within an open-air kitchen. Kick off meals or slurping contests with a bowl of pappa al pomodoro ($6.95)—a Tuscan soup mingling tomatoes with garlic, black pepper, and diced bread—before supping on one of more than 10 pastas, such as pesto-slathered gnocchi ($17.95), spinach ravioli ($17.95), or hand-rolled lasagna layering minced veal, ricotta, mascarpone, and béchamel sauce. Otherwise, a grilled filet of tuna ($22.95) or 12-ounce new york strip steak ($26.95) offer noodleless dining alternatives. Emerging from a stone oven, hand-rolled pizza margheritas ($13.95) hoist the simple, yet ambrosial ingredients of tomato, mozzarella, and italian seasonings, while pizza con la luganegas ($14.95) adds more sizzle than an all-skillet cabaret cast with toppings of italian sausage and roasted peppers. Guests can conclude feasts with a tiramisu ($7.95), a house specialty soaked in espresso and layered with mascarpone mousse.
The main dining area summons subtle hints of the Old World with a sprinkling of rustic décor, bucolic murals, and soft lighting to cultivate a relaxing ambiance for family gatherings, work outings, and romantic Yahtzee games. Guests can also dine within the spacious bar area, which boasts granite and mahogany accents, flat-screen TVs, and a piano that fills the elegant eatery's soundscape with live music on certain evenings.
