The very best in Tuscan cooking!

Since 2005 i 'Toscano has been my favorite restaurant, period. This is not qualified by country. I have eaten here at least 20 times if not more. The owners are friendly, the place is homey and the food is Tuscan and out of this world or per morire, to die for in Italian.

It is easy to get to and close to historic downtown. My words cannot do the taste and selection of foods justice, it is simply amazing. Being a carnivore my favorite is the famous, historic Bistecca Fiorentina, which, if you don't know is about 4 pounds of T-Bone steak about 3 inches thick cooked for about 10 minutes per side. This makes for a very rare steak that melts like butter in your mouth. It is simply amazing.

The wine selection is amazing. The owners have many wine merchants selling their wares and they buy the very best wines and always recommend the best.

For you less carnivorous diners there is a menu consisting of everything including a vegetarian fare that will be sure to please the palate. I have literally never had a bad meal there, I recommend i 'Toscano to all my friends. Buon apetito!!
