THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Trattoria Toscana Restaurant Review

: Pining for Parma, Perugia or Pisa? Then never mind the North End; while both its Americanized retro pasta joints and elegant modern boîtes have their advantages, authenticity to the Italian experience is rarely one of them. Instead, take the trek to this out-of-the-way trattoria on a residential stretch of the Fenway. Here you’ll find not only the lovingly prepared fare you crave --- robust antipasti like crostini misti with chicken liver pâté, creamy gnocchi with toasted walnuts, rich risotto with porcini mushrooms, and simple grilled meats, including a juicy pork chop with sautéed spinach (not to mention a first-rate cup of espresso) --- but also the casual yet intimate atmosphere Italy’s own storefronts emanate.
