My visit to Toscano disappointed me on more levels than one. The menu reads fantastic and I found myself salivating by the time I decided what I would like to order.
We ordered the non-veg antipasti platter for two as a starter. First the waiter gets a veg platter. Then, finally, after a 20-minute wait we get our non-veg platter. I understand that a platter, by definition, is meant to be hearty and generous. This platter, however, was miserly, stingy and tightfisted. So, -10 there.
For the main course we ordered a roasted pistachio crusted lamb rack and crispy bacon wrapped roasted fillet mignon. The lamb rack was a nightmare! The worst job on "frenching" the rack, ever. And it hardly had any meat and whatever was there was either not accessible or too tough to chew; coupled with an equally disappointing mash. For the fillet mignon, the beef was cooked really well but the risotto was chalky and rather bad.
We did not dare risk desserts after the starter and the main course.
