Villa Toscana

Traditional Italian dishes in a very fancy setting

Time Out Says

Villa Toscana exudes fancy date night vibes. With heavy wooden doors, a faux front in the hotel’s lobby and plush white tablecloths, you know it aims to give a memorable occasion.

And it does. The service is excellent, friendly and attentive, with staff giving knowledgeable recommendations about the Tuscan menu.

The room itself is rather grand, with murals of the Italian countryside on the walls and heavy, dark wood furniture.

The grandeur is reflected in the prices, though that’s not really surprising given it’s one of the city’s fanciest Italians.

Dishes are traditional and on the safe side. So if you’re after steady, tasty Italian dining you’ll be happy here.

The grilled octopus starter is a must-try, boasting perfectly cooked chunks of the cephalopod, delightfully charred and served atop a bed of potatoes and garlicky sauce.

A citrusy, orangey risotto with asparagus is tasty, but a little heavy handed with the salt.

Meanwhile, the lobster ravioli goes the other way, not having as much flavour as you would hope, though the pasta itself is perfectly cooked. 

Save room for dessert as the chocolate fondant steals the show. Thick, gooey chocolate streams from the delicate casing. It’s rich, moreish and utterly delicious.

For romantic meal, Villa Toscana delivers. But some dishes could do with more oomph.
