With an owner who hails from Sicily and a head chef who previously worked at a five-star resort in Milan, you will be hard pressed to find a more authentic Italian café on the Grand Strand than Villa Tuscanna. Excellent service completes the trifecta of great food and atmosphere.
From traditional Italian classics to creative Tuscan specials, Villa Tuscanna covers all the bases for lovers of Italian cuisine. Even simple dishes like the lasagna have their own unique Tuscanna twist, and the osso buco, featuring fresh veal shanks in a white wine sauce, is just one of the restaurant’s specialities. All pastas are made on site, and all the ingredients are fresh for a true taste of Italy. Other popular dishes on the regular menu include the Veal Saltimbocca, the Zuppe Alfredo and the Chicken Romano with fresh mozzarella cheese and prosciutto in a lemon herb sauce, but the nightly dinner specials are the way to go if you have adventurous taste buds. Villa Tuscanna also offers an extensive wine list, a full bar and a mind-blowing list of desserts, like their famous Tiramasu.
Villa Tuscanna’s strip-mall location belies the goodness inside. Featuring Italian scenes painted on the walls and candle-lit tables covered in white cloth, Villa Tuscanna provides the perfect environment for a romantic meal.
