Trattoria Toscana, the authentic Italian restaurant at the bustling Souk Madinat Jumeirah, opened for business this week.
Formerly known as Toscana, the casual-dining eatery stays true to its roots and serves generous portions of affordable hearty comforting food, inspired by the laid-back lifestyle of rural Tuscany.
The menu uses fresh, high-quality ingredients to enhance the natural flavours of signature dishes, which include baked pastas, creamy risottos, delicious flat-bread pizzas and slow cooked tender braised meats.
Trattoria Toscana also serves succulent seafood, crisp salads and a range of regional desserts including “Torta della Nonna” and Tiramisu. Adding to the authenticity, grape by the carafe will be available soon after opening to complete the Tuscan dining experience.
General manager Marco Di Pasquale says: “Trattoria Toscana offers something for everyone. We serve simple Tuscan-inspired food, made with love by our Italian chefs; good, wholesome, authentic cuisine that appeals to the whole family whether toddler, teenager, parent or grandparent. With a warm and inviting environment, the restaurant offers a relaxed dining experience that revolves around the ‘famiglia’ and fresh, seasonal flavours.”
To celebrate the opening, the restaurant will be offering diners the chance to win a trip to Tuscany in Italy by simply providing their name and contact information when dining at the restaurant. A winner will be chosen at random and announced on December 25.
