January 1, 2013 was our fourth dinner at Brio Tuscan Grille in Birmingham. We drive to Florida from Canada every winter and stop overnight in Birmingham mainly so we can enjoy a great meal. The room is superb - TALL ceilings, columns, art, pleasant tables no matter where you are seated.
The menu has excellent choices in starters and mains. Being an Italian resto, they have not only meat, chicken and fish, but also a long list of pastas, and pizzas. We both ordered the Italian green salad, which was excellent, with a light, but pleasant vinaigrette. My wife had chicken Limone (Lemon chicken) as a main. Lightly breaded grilled chicken, with a light, brisk lemon sauce, served with spaghettini and nicely done grilled vegetables. I was permitted to sample it and will say it was delicious. I went for the lasagna and was not disappointed. A substantial serving - lasagna noodles surrounding italian ground beef/pork and served with a rich cheese sauce, topped with house made tomato sauce. Our server mentioned that the lady who preps the sauce and fillings for the lasagna has been at that restaurant for 11 years.
Our server, Jason, was helpful, friendly and prompt. About all you can ask for.
We look forward to our next visit, January 2014.
