Wild Mushroom and Mozzarella Risotto Ball at Tuscano Italian Wood Oven Pizza & Restaurant

Wild Mushroom and Mozzarella Risotto Ball

Pizza, pasta and more. No, this restaurant is not a fast food chain. I got the chance to eat at Tuscano Italian Wood Oven Pizza restaurant last June through an invitation of their PR. To be honest, I was quite hesitant because I was thinking it might be another Italianni’s. Good thing it’s not.

The restaurant opened in Dec 2011 and located near the Burgos Circle at the Bonifacio Global City.

We tried a lot of food (food tastings like these really serve lots of food!) but I guess I will highlight my favorite ones here.

For appetizers, the Wild Mushroom and Mozzarella Risotto Ball is a must-try. The risotto balls are nested in fresh tomato sauce. So good! If you’re a salad lover, try the Tuscano Salad. Its dressed with balsamic vinegar and have apple slices coated with cinnamon powder. If you like cottage cheese, try the Caprese salad.

PIZZAS

Tuscano grills their pizza in a wood oven which makes pizza have that distinct smoky and wooden flavor.

Sweet Pear and Gorgonzola Pizza

The Sweet Pear and Gorgonzola Pizza seems interesting but it actually tasted good. I never realized that that sweetness of pears and the intensely flavored taste of gorgonzola can work.

Beef Stew in Casserole with Chocolate at Tuscano Italian Wood Oven Pizza & Restaurant

Beef Stew Casserole with Chocolate

Having beef and chocolate in one dish seem odd but actually this combination works. It may look like blood stew but it doesn’t taste like it. The chocolate gives a rich flavor compared to typical tomato sauce. I would not recommend eating it alone because you might get tired of its taste. Better to pair it with a pasta dish.

The food tasting in Tuscano surely made us all full and reminded me that Italian food is not just pizza and pasta. We always tend to forget that there’s more to that.
