I’m so lucky to have had lunch in Italy! Did I say Italy? I meant to say at Tuscano’s in Manchester on South Willow St. Being served authentic Italian cuisine, I thought I must have been in Italy. Tuscano’s has only been around for eight months and is a wonderful family style restaurant. The atmosphere is clean, simple and comfortable. Cozy enough for a date yet, relaxed enough to bring the little ones. Phil and Patty are the owners and greet you with such a warm welcome. While I was there for lunch there were a few folks there who were regulars. One guest when leaving told Phil she was heading away for a week but to expect her for lunch the day she returned. Another table of guests found Tuscano’s from a mailing and were glad they did. One woman told Patty the food was over the top. The compliments were well deserved.
The portions at Tuscano’s are very generous sizes. The sauces, dressings and some of the pastas are made fresh in their kitchen. There’s just something different knowing they’re making fresh, homemade food!
Okay, so what did I have? I tried the mushroom ravioli and the sauce I chose was an Alfredo and red sauce mix. I did mention the sauces are made from scratch, right? Another wonderful attribute to Tuscano’s is that your food can be made to your taste. What word could I use to describe how I enjoyed my meal? Delizioso! I also had a Ceasar salad and bread with my meal. The dressing was the best I had ever tasted and my salad was topped with homemade warm croutons! I wanted to eat everything on my plate but I couldn’t eat more than half which was good because the next day I was very glad to be able to enjoy the tasteful experience again.
You can’t leave an Italian restaurant without having a homemade cannoli now can you? That would just be an insult in my book. Patty makes her cannolis from scratch as well. They were divinely perfect and I do mean perfect.
I did receive a free product for this review but my opinions are solely my own.
