Dinner out at Tosca
Well since we had never been and only passed it often enough we decided to hit Tosca, an Italian restaurant in Throggs Neck, Bronx, NY. It was part modern, part old Tahitian wooden looking and then very little Italian. There was not even Italian music playing. That is not a problem. We had a very young server and as per my other dinner guests, she did not really smile a lot.
I could not decide what I wanted to drink so I got hot tea. It was also a little chilly outside. Out of the wind it was pleasant but there was so little of that. The alfresco doors were wide open as well. I wore my jacket but then as the food arrived it became a little warm.
I ordered the lobster ravioli and grilled vegetables to share between myself and my bf. The other guest ordered a fried platter: calamari, shrimp, scallops. I can say that the grilled vegetables were delicious: eggplant, red peppers, mushrooms, zuchinni. They sat on a bed of mesclun lettuce. It was grilled with a great taste. The ravioli was okay. The fried platter was just that, fried and so we all know what that taste like.
I still want to try some more stuff on the menu. I had previously done a delivery order and tasted the wraps and the steak. Would I go back, yes.
I give it a 6 as the veggies were pretty good.
Ciao and Happy Italian Day to you. ( I am nominiating today, will anyone second this?)
