I was recently invited for a food tasting to Tuscana, which is a popular local Italian eatery in Chennai, India owned by Vipin Sachdev and helmed by Chef Willi.
Tuscana is best known for its wood fire-oven pizzas available in many different crusts including a gluten free option. The pizzas are topping heavy and offer many options one of the newest being a chili chili.
Tuscana has done its outmost to source its ingredients as locally as possible. The also pride themselves in making their own fresh pastas and gelatos. These, along with a large selection of meats, cheeses, herbs and many ready foods are available in a to-go deli attached to the restaurant.
Of all the dishes I tried I have to say that my favorites were the homemade chicken and pasta dish and the grilled prawn with polenta. Their tiramisu is a must try. It is definitely one of the best tiramisu’s that I have tried in these parts.
Here is some of what we ate:
