Cucina Toscana

307 W. Pierpont Ave., Salt Lake City, 84101
801-328-3463
For many, this is Utah’s best choice for authentic Italian cuisine. Dining at Cucina Toscana is part opera, part symphony, part three-ring circus—all orchestrated by the maestro, Valter Nassi. The debonair, hand-kissing, bear-hugging Italian restaurant owner greets each guest personally, and each evening is a unique performance that revolves around impeccable Northern Italian cuisine. Order the Caesar salad, and chances are Nassi will prepare it for you himself, tableside. Opt for the risotto of the day—always cooked perfectly, by the way—and Nassi will likely turn up to offer freshly sliced truffles. Ask about the pollo della casa—a souped-up version of chicken piccata—and he might get a little teary describing it to you, he’s so proud of the dish. Airy pillows of freshly made gnocchi in mushroom cream sauce are simply heaven. But, then, so is everything else about this very special Tuscan trattoria.

I had someone recommend this restaurant to me and I decided to give it a try for our wedding anniversary.  What a disappointing outing.  We tried the sampler which consisted of two items and very little food and to top that off it cost us $24 each.  Then to top off the night was when the bill came and it showed $12.50 for a salad which took up about a quarter of a plate.  The food tasted good but very overpriced for what you actually get.  I won't ever go back there again.
