Since the birth of the Renaissance in Florence centuries ago, Tuscany has embodied the best of Italian cuisine. No region in the world can claim its native bounty.
Fresh seafood caught off the Tuscan coast, Florentine steak from the Chiana Valley, and renowned cheeses and prosciutto handmade in Parma are just a few of the hallmark ingredients of Tuscany’s traditional dishes. Wild game thrive in the region's dense forests. Rich farmland and an ideal climate produce an amazing variety of influential flavors — lemons, garlic, olives, and of course the famous Sangiovese grape.
Toscano pays homage to its Tuscan roots with menu selections and daily specials that bring together seasonal ingredients and rare imports. No restaurant in New England more faithfully reproduces Tuscan culinary traditions.
Starting with flavorful olive oil—the base of most Tuscan meals, our dishes incorporate handmade pastas, fine local and imported cheeses, housemade sausages, wild mushrooms, and fresh vine-ripened tomatoes. Pizzas are crisped to perfection in our stone oven and game and fish cooked alla griglia are enhanced with oak, hickory, and maple.
Tuscan tradition is expressed in our wines as well. The Sangiovese grape’s vino rosso, imbued with all the flavors of its surrounds, colors the palate of many distinguished names: Brunello di Montellocino, Chianti, and Chianti Reserva. Toscano’s temperature-controlled wine room, holding up to 1,000 bottles, features these and more among our hundred Tuscan labels. Another hundred wines from regions across Italy share the spotlight.
