Tuscany Art In Dining

I know it is kind of a strange name, but that is what it is. Tuscany is a new Italian restaurant in Grapevine. We went a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday night around 7:30 and didn't have any problems getting in. We really enjoyed it.

The menu looks like a book. Several pages with pictures that the owner took in Italy when he lived there. There are a lot of choices. The bread was also good.
We did not have steaks, but it looks like that is one of their specialties. The steak menu reminds me of Bern's in Tampa, Florida. You order the type of steak you want, choose the weight and the thickness. They had several sauces that you can choose from.

We started out with salads. They were the only part of the meal I was disappointed in. I got the Italian salad. It was very small and tasted like the lettuce was soaked in pepper juice. It was so tangy that I almost couldn't eat it. Pops got the Caesar and he said it was just okay.

For our entree, I had the Chicken Scallopini and Pops had the "Tuscan Fermo Grande". It was shrimp, crab, scallops, and mussels with a great creamy sauce.

The pasta page on the menu is interesting. There are several different pasts and lots of sauces to choose from. We were so full that we didn't get dessert.

It was a good meal and we will go back.
