Tuscany Ristorante in Leichhardt is a sophisticated, modern restaurant with an extensive menu of contemporary Italian cuisine. The staff are warm and friendly, helping to ensure that you enjoy a relaxed dining experience any day of the week.
Tuscany's is fabulous for a long lunch or relaxed dinner. Recently the management and chef's and menu have changed. The new team have come well known Eastern suburbs hot spots and it feels like a shake up has happened for this inner west spot which is what Norton St needs.
The food is modern with many delicious options. The price point is great and the serves generous. My fav dishes are the beef carpaccio (with truffled pecorino, toasted pine nuts, cornichons and baby green cress) it's so light and tasty and pan fried scallops (with celeriac puree, fennel and orange salad, crisp pancetta) love the braised lamb neck (with wet polenta, pickled radicchio and minted jus)as we are going into colder weather. YUM. The white chocolate and strawberry cheesecake is pure sin but it has to be finished!
Great for a pre movie lunch or pre / post movie dinner and parking is free underneath in the car park for a few hours. Also great for a long lunch or relaxed dinner with a large group seems to be the go here even with kids. They also have live music on Fri / Sat nights which is really enjoyable. Service is really friendly and attentive.
I enjoy going to Tuscany for lunch on a summer's day. The open air dining is great when the weather is warm. This restaurant is in one of the busiest sections of Norton Street, so it's a good place to sit and watch the world go by. The food is good, and the service is satisfactory.
