This was our first time to Cucina Toscana since there were significant changes to the management and the menu. We were not disappointed in the least, and my wife and I both feel that there has been no loss of quality in either the food or the service. We shared the Rigatoni appetizer, which was prepared perfectly (al dente, of course), then I had the fennel-crusted duck, which was always one of my favorites on the old menu. The preparation was somewhat different, but still delicious. And my wife had the orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe, a traditional Italian dish that doesn't find it's way onto too many menus here in Salt Lake. It was also fantastic, properly prepared and nicely seasoned. The chocolate soufflé for dessert, accompanied by gelato, was the perfect ending to an excellent meal.
One of the special treats at Cucina Toscana has always been the level of service, and again the restaurant has lived up to it's previous standard. Our server, Elizabeth, was knowledgeable about the menu, attentive, and provided us with the sort of personal attention one would expect at this price point. Yes, Cucina is pricey, but well-worth it for a special occasion or a nice night out on the town.
