City Pages' Description

Think of Harvey McLain's Tosca as the Italian version of his Café Levain (he also owns the Turtle Bread empire): both hit the sweet spot between upscale and casual, restaurants that feel special enough to celebrate a birthday, but not too extravagant for a weeknight supper. Tosca's kitchen offers fresh, simple, seasonal fare. A Flavors of Spring Plate, for example, might contrast an ultra-smooth chicken-liver paté with the crisp, fresh sting of a French breakfast radish; the tart crunch of pickled ramps and fennel; the piercing sweetness of roasted grapes; and a complex rhubarb-ramp compote. The short list of entrees--pork loin with cannelloni beans, rib eye with Yukon potatoes and local mushrooms--and fresh pastas--gnocchi, and risotto--are uniformly excellent. Linden Hills' quintessential restaurant has finally arrived.

Tips from foursquare

  • City Pages on 02/20/13

    Good news -- Orecchiette with lemon mascarpone, bucatini with pancetta, and pappardelle with lamb sugo and Swiss chard are all available by the half and full ordering for sampling or sharing!

  • Heavy Table on 04/08/11

    Start with the beet carpaccio ($9), order a full serving of the tagliatelle with chicken confit ($15), add a side of Brussels sprouts ($9), and finish with the amaretto chocolate custard ($8).

  • Meg D. on 11/18/11

    Try the squash ravioli- it's amazing!
