Tuscany Il Ristorante

If you are looking for a place that is a little bit more formal with a warm ambience Tuscany is the place to go. This restaurant takes its inspiration from Italy and truly has an upscale Italian menu. You walk in and the bar area already is catchy to the eye and sets the mood for the rest of the evening.

$15-50

For the best experience, I would recommend getting a glass of Prosecco to start. They offer you a delicious bread basket and the perfect tomato bruschetta while you wait for your food. With a menu that has options like roasted pheasant or branzino, you definitely feel like you are in a special place with good food.

My favorites are the pasta… of course. The first time I went, I ordered the vermicelli with strips of filet mignon and pancetta. I can still taste the pasta as I am writing this blog. It was THAT GOOD. I wanted to lick the plate and order another 5 more! The roasted tomato sauce is perfectly salted with the pancetta and the filet mignon just melts in your mouth. It’s like all the flavors intermingle in your mouth to create the perfect taste.

Another great and traditional dish is the spaghetti carbonara. This is a very traditional dish and although it sounds easy, it is actually very difficult to make well. It is a creamy parmesan sauce with pancetta and sweet onion.

This place is definitely worth a try for a date night or even a night you want to go have drinks at a classy bar. Try it out and let me know what you think!
