The casually upscale Tuscany Ristorante spoons out authentic Italian cuisine by the aromatic bowlful. The restaurant's dinner menu delivers a refreshingly traditional selection of meats, including the medaglioni di filetto di manzo—tender filet mignon medallions sautéed with a medley of portobello mushrooms and gorgonzola cheese ($31.95). 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 sauce. The lunch menu manifests simpler offerings, such as paninis filled with sausage, onions, and peppers ($13.95), and more twisted concepts, such as fettuccine with chicken breast ($13.95). Like a florescent lobster bib, an astute selection from Tuscany Ristorante’s wine list pairs well with any cuisine.
