Restaurant Review: Tosca Ristorante Italiano

What a nice surprise I had the other evening when my husband and I went out to dinner at TOSCA'S. I was unfamiliar with the menu and had not called ahead, so figured I would just be making due with a salad and watch my husband eat the lasagna he had been craving. As I was reading through the menu my eyes fell on the words "gluten free pasta available." I also learned that all of TOSCA's sauces are gluten free! The wait staff was very helpful and we had a wonderful dining experience. The gelato is a nice option for dessert.

The menu and specials are listed on TOSCA's website at http://www.bluecorn-tosca.com . Here the restaurant describes itself as serving traditional central and southern Italian cuisine daily in a casual elegant atmosphere.

As with all dining experiences it is a good idea to verify that what you are ordering is gluten free. Make sure you request that your gluten free pasta be cooked in a clean separate cooking pot from the other pastas.

I look forward to returning to TOSCA's enjoying gluten free pasta, a glass of wine and listening to the live music that is offered in the spring and fall.

Thanks for sharing! It is pretty rare to find Italian restaurants in the area that have gluten free pasta. My boyfriend and I are going for Valentine's Day. :)
