Throwback to last year at Toscano in Nungambakkam, Chennai.
I wanted to put up a post on food as well but due to the current pandemic I was not able to that. So I thought I could share one of my experiences from last year instead. I had gone to this place in the month of October 2019 with my friends after a few people recommended it. After hearing the rave reviews that they gave me, I really had to check it out.
We had ordered the ‘Pesce del giorno’ which literally translates to fish of the day, the ‘Vegetariana’ pizza and the ‘Four seasons’ pizza both of which I did not take pictures of. The fish that we were served that day was sea bass. Everyone says that you eat with your eyes first, and that is so true because the moment I saw my plate, I was really blown away by the presentation and just wanted to dig in. Oh my, I wasn’t disappointed!! The fish was really juicy and succulent and cooked perfectly. The grilled vegetables which were served as accompaniments were perfect and they complimented the fish really well. The sauces that were served also did their purpose and they were really good as well. The cohesiveness among the elements in the plate was really strong and it really played an important part in making the dish perfect.
Now coming to the pizzas, one bite was all it took to transport me to another world. The pizza was so light and the base was amazing. Usually most of the pizzas that I eat, make me feel so full after a while but this did not. It just made me crave for more without the feeling of being full and I really loved it. Both the pizzas with the different toppings were unique in their own way and it was really amazing. I would definitely recommend you all to try out their pizzas first when you visit, before you go for anything else on their menu.
The ambience was a cherry on the top and made the whole experience really surreal.
My overall rating: 4.5/5
Customer service: 4.5/5
Unfortunately, I didn’t try out the desserts but I look forward to trying out the Tiramisu during my next visit.
