Tether your taste buds to today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Tuscany Ristorante in Bridgeport.
The casually upscale Tuscany Ristorante spoons out authentic Italian cuisine by the aromatic bowlful with classic appetizers, entrees, and homemade desserts. Serving both lunch and dinner, Tuscany Ristorante’s menu affords diners two portion sizes to choose from on a number of pasta and risotto entrees, including the rich ravioli della casa—ricotta cheese ravioli smothered in a vodka sauce ($12 small, $19.95 large). In a dehumanized world of automatic teller machines and bionic postal workers, Tuscany Ristorante delivers refreshingly personalized service with an array of prime, cooked-to-order dry, aged steaks such as the NY ($31.95) or the medaglioni di filetto di manzo, featuring tender filet mignon medallions in a medley of portabella mushrooms and gorgonzola cheese ($33.95). Like a florescent lobster bib, an astute selection of Tuscany Ristorante’s wines pair well with any cuisine.
Crisp, white linens and rich hardwood floors infuse Tuscany Ristorante with a casual elegance to match its classic, flavorful fare. Sweeping country landscapes pepper the bright yellow walls, evoking summers spent under the Tuscan sun sipping wine and dancing the tarantella until the INS showed up.
