In previous years that we
have lived in
we never paid mind to this little restaurant. It was on a section of street that
wasn't on our daily trek, so without knowing it, we were missing out on one of
the best places in town to get a meal!
Front entrance to
Basically a tiny
hole-in-the-wall, Tuscani has 6 tables. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner,
has steaks, chicken, pizza, seafood, pastas, salads and daily specials. Beer,
wine, selected liquors and specialty coffees are also offered.
What a variety!
Simple native decor, excellent
Here you see Chef Walter
with his head wrapped in a red cloth. Walter does a fine job in cooking meals
and he presents the dish beautifully. Walter also speaks English, and the menu
is in English or Spanish.
Our $6US meal
This is an incredibly
delicious chicken breast cooked to perfection in a cream, bacon and mushroom
sauce. The chicken rests on a bed of freshly mashed potatoes and there are
grilled vegetables, bread and butter with the meal. The portions are just right
and the flavor goes a very long way.
Pasta Chicken Alfredo
This amazing pasta dish
with tender chicken was priced at $5USD. Again, plenty of food, and the flavor
was mouthwatering, not bland as some pasta dishes can be. Fresh Italian parsley
is the garnish in the middle.
The Special Board
One of the specials listed on the board is a chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese in a prune sauce.
This was amazing and surprisingly avant-guarde. We have seen their salads being ordered by other patrons and
they are fresh and alive. Tuscani's is also known for their delicious individual
pizzas, one of them listed here is their Salmon Pizza.
All of their ingredients
seem to be of high quality and packed with flavor.
Another $5USD gourmet
This pasta was power-packed
with flavor: capers, mushrooms, tomatoes, olive oil, lemon, garlic and chicken.
It truly was delicious to the last bite. Nothing boring about this dish and as
with most of their menu items, comes highly recommended!
Another Special Board
The salmon with almonds was
a real treat and the price is $8USD. Flakey, moist, and of course, flavorful. An
individual pizza with Gorgonzola cheese and prosciutto ham is also listed for
$10USD, fish and shrimp ceviche runs $7USD and fajitas with cheese and tofu us
$7USD as well.
There is no shortage of
choices in this affordable, dynamo-of-a-restaurant. Located on lower Santander,
open daily except Tuesdays.
