First, check out my kickass Ride & Review video HERE:
My wife and I finally made it over to Da Toscano with my buddy and his girlfriend, who are huge fans of the place. We went big, so I’ll get right down to business.
For starters, we had the broiled oysters, which were bathed in crab fat butter. Absolutely delicious.
Then we ate five pasta dishes. Yes, five. My favorites were the lamb neck agnolotti and the orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe sauce.
Insane. So much flavor coming through in that orecchiette from the pickled cherry peppers. And the agnolotti were like little buttery packages of meaty deliciousness.
The squid ink spaghetti with crab and Calabrian chili was delicious as well. Perfectly executed.
The Scialatielli with sour beer and clams was incredibly unique and delicious. We really enjoyed this.
The gnocchi was our least favorite.
For our main courses we went with the veal strip parm and the Bistecca Fiorentina style porterhouse.
The parm was perfectly crisp and delicious.
The steak had a slight age on it from Allen Brothers, and it was rubbed with a porcini mushroom spice. 9/10!
For dessert we had the bomboloni with foie gras, peanut butter and jelly. It was pretty good, but we ended up liking the olive oil cake better.
I highly recommend this place, and I can’t wait to go back to try more stuff.
