Natural and flavorful ingredients are the essence of Tuscan cuisine and the Mediterranean diet as a whole. Most people find this type of wholesome food very appetizing, with its use of pastas, olive oil, fish, and quality meats. Utilizing these exceptional ingredients, Italian restaurant Da Silvano works with their kitchen and both local and imported ingredients to create mouthwatering meals.
Simple and savory dishes are the key to Tuscan cuisine, which is centered around ingredients like white truffles, wild asparagus, and herbage. Tuscany is known for its abundant farmland, and “food of the earth” is the key phrase to understanding its cuisine. Unlike other regions of Italy that rely on meat for flavor, Tuscan cuisine works with wild game and cured meats for most of their meals. One of the most famous types of Tuscan meat is Bistecca alla Fiorentina.
Italian restaurant Da Silvano knows all about this popular piece of meat, and serves up Bistecca alla Fiorentina per Due (for two). The dish is made with a dry-aged short-loin steak that is traditionally marinated in olive oil and garlic, grilled till medium rare, and served with a side of grilled vegetables.
Along with its hardy vegetables, Tuscan cuisine is also widely known for its use of bread. This Italian restaurant stays traditional with their Crostini Toscani, made with chopped chicken livers, capers, anchovies, white wine, and onion served on Tuscan bread.
Tuscan cuisine – and Italy in general – is no stranger to impeccable desserts. Most desserts from Tuscany work with simple ingredients, like figs, raisins, ricotta cheese, and sweet wines like Marsala. This Italian restaurant offers perfectly sweet treats like the Biscotti con Vin Santo made with almond cookies and sweet wine.
Italian cuisine is one thing, but traditional Tuscan meals are quite another. Stop into Italian restaurant Da Silvano for a sweet, savory, and impeccably fresh meal that is guaranteed to make you feel like you just traveled to Europe.
