TOSCANOVA, the Italian trattoria opened its doors in January 2009. The amazing food, the fashionably fabulous customers and the entertaining environment make Toscanova a favorite for many. Whether colleagues come to discuss deals over lunch, first dates come to fall in love over dinner, or friends come to enjoy the patio people watching after seeing a movie, all leave with lasting memories. Serving lunch and dinner 7 days a week, Toscanova is always bustling and continually offers Chef Sciandri’s new and innovative specials, a modern approach on his classic dishes.
