#45 -50 Best Restaurants 2018 - Villa Toscana
Inspired by a Tuscan villa, dinner at this Corniche-side restaurants is more akin to visiting the summer residence of an Italian nobleman.
While Chef Rosario ensures the best flavours by updating the menu seasonally, the constant inspiration is taken from the Italian culinary heartlands of Tuscany, Umbria and Emilia-Romagna.
If the strength of an Italian restaurant is its ingredients, the special imports of cheese, prosciutto, cold cuts, and salamis emphasize the quality level of the restaurant.
The warm colours, wooden furniture, stone fireplace and tall ceilings give the interior a homely feel... especially if you're a relative of Italian nobility and used to visiting them on their palazzo during the glorious Tuscan summer months.
The homemade lasagna is an absolute must-have, so-much-so that it is the central theme of the Villa Toscana's popular Saturday brunch, which offers a variety of homemade lasagnas using freshly made pasta and mouth-watering melted cheese. It is comfort food done oh-so-right.
