Lunch at the Tuscan Oven

We took a road we don’t usually take, and suddenly, there it was – The Tuscan Oven! I had eaten there before, and loved it, but had not seen it and had assumed it had disappeared. Restaurants do that, even good ones, it takes so much work and so much effort to run a restaurant, and they run on such a slim margin that we have often been disappointed to see good restaurants close.

We were joyful to see the Tuscan Oven!

The place is packed. People who love good food are here. 🙂 You can tell that many of them are friends with the owner, and they come here often. The menu has too many good things!

We ordered the Antipasta Plate, with delicious cheeses and sausages, tasty olives and a stuffed artichoke heart. Unfortunately, we dug in before I remembered to take photos 😦

We each also ordered a small pizza, but even small was too big after the antipasta plate, so we ended up bringing more than a full pizza home.

I love the decor – an artist has painted food ingredients for the meals – this is my favorite, the artichoke:

We look forward to coming back here often!
