What sets our traditional pastas apart from the rest? It’s all in the process. We make our pasta fresh daily, using only the highest-quality ingredients like semolina flour, farm-fresh eggs, and pure water. This dedication to quality ensures that every bite of our pasta is tender, flavorful, and perfectly al dente.

But it’s not just the pasta that makes our dishes memorable; it’s also the sauces we pair them with. At Trattoria Toscana, we offer four classic Italian sauces that complement our pasta beautifully:

  1. Tomato-Basil Sauce: A simple yet flavorful sauce made from ripe tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic, and olive oil. This sauce is perfect for those who love the taste of fresh, natural ingredients.
  2. Pesto Sauce: A rich, aromatic blend of fresh basil, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, and extra-virgin olive oil. Pesto is a versatile sauce that pairs well with many pasta shapes.
  3. Meat Sauce: A hearty, savory sauce made from ground beef, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and Italian herbs. This sauce is ideal for a more robust and filling pasta dish.
  4. Four Cheese Sauce: A creamy, indulgent sauce made from a blend of four Italian cheeses, including Parmesan, Gorgonzola, Fontina, and Taleggio. This sauce adds a luxurious touch to any pasta dish.

These sauces are all made from scratch with fresh, high-quality ingredients, ensuring our pasta dishes deliver an unforgettable experience.
