Once again, I find myself at the Century City area so this time we try an Italian place called Toscanova. Unlike the other chain restaurants near by, this place seems to be more of a non-chain variety. There’s seating outside in front and the side, as well as plenty of seating inside and at the bar.
We started off with Carciofi Marinati (marinated artichokes), which my friend didn’t like because it was cold but I really enjoyed. The flavoring was perfect.
My friend ordered a seafood mix plate shown below. Don’t ask me what all in in there because I’m really not sure. There were multiple fish mixed in with other stuff in there. I didn’t try any of it myself but my friend like it.
Anytime I go to a Italian Restaurant, I always order Veal. My last try was in Honolulu at Assaggio with not much luck. This time around, I was very satisfied with my Veal Scallopine here. As you can see from the picture, they don’t give you any lemon slices. This worried me a little until I tasted it and it was perfect. I was enjoying my veal so much, I didn’t want to ruin it by tasting my friends fish dish.
Although I’ve been here before and had their desert, we decided to go elsewhere for desert.
All in all, I like the atmosphere here and on my first try of their main dishes, liked what I got. I’ll be coming back here again.
