About the restaurant
Take a break and relax at the Tuscan Market Trattoria, a café area surrounded by flat screen TV's, while enjoying coffee, espresso or grabbing a bite to eat. For something sweet, an authentic homemade gelato machine imported from Italy will feature different flavors of the creamiest gelato offered this side of Italy.

Great night and great food. Dave Clarke was serenading us on the patio while Connie, our server, kept us stocked up on food and drinks.The service and music made my wife's birthday night. Furthermore, the food was banging (i.e, scallops and Cobb salad w/ inhouse Caeser dressing, and peanut butter pie).

We went for our 5 year anniversary and it was perfect. Food was excellent (sweet and spicy popcorn shrimp is a must for appetizer and we both had the lamb for dinner). They surprised us with a complimentary glass of champagne for our anniversary which was super thoughtful. Service was very good!
