TusCA Ristorante Restaurant Review

: It's easy to make assumptions about a corporate-run hotel/conference center dining room: a yawn of stuffed chicken breast, pasta primavera --- the usual suspects. But TusCA’s seasonal menu features winners such as a lightly-spiced, deeply earthy root vegetable soup, and bread that comes with oil, balsamic vinegar and a whole head of roasted garlic. In another dish, spicy arugula meets earthy farro with a light vinaigrette topped with creamy, mildly salty feta. Try any of the pizzas, and for something really different, order the falafel; coarsely ground chickpeas on pillowy flatbread are complemented by a Middle Eastern sauce and cucumber salad. A not-too-sweet cherry tart is a grand finish. Service is personable and prompt and there’s a pleasant view of the golf course. In a tourist mecca filled with options, TusCA is worth the visit.
