Award- winning Villa Toscana has a well-deserved reputation, serving hand-crafted, regional Italian specialities from Tuscany, Umbria and Emilia-Romagna. With the feeling of visiting the inviting summer home of an Italian noble, Chef Rosario Martorana and Manager Giuseppe Palmieri certainly did not disappoint.
