Ristorante Tosca Restaurant Review

: Noted for its very elegant and approachable Northern Italian cuisine, Tosca is where to go for such dishes as the dinnertime appetizer pear and radicchio salad with Gorgonzola or the sautéed frogs’ legs with white wine. Moving on to the main course, the kitchen should tempt even the weariest palates with such offerings as grilled T-bone lamb chops in a ramps crust (seasonal) or pan-roasted red snapper. All pastas are made fresh daily, so you may want to include an order of ravioli filled with roasted veal and prosciutto. And, of course, you might want to include the risotto with lobster. You can also select from among two tasting menus, wine pairings extra, and one of these is the Tuscan-style option. Close to the power places, Tosca is often crowded at lunch, so make sure to have reservations.
