La Toscana is
a highlight on the Sharon area restaurant landscape. This charming restaurant
about a block south of the Renanim Mall, thanks to owner Haim and his
creative ideas, becomes more charming all the time.
What started as a one-room mom-and-pop shop at least 13 years ago has
blossomed into a full and delightful restaurant with a large indoor
area, a comfortable enclosed front patio, and a lovely private room
for intimate smachot. The Sharon area offers many good restaurants,
but La Toscana is one of the few gracious places to dine.
recent improvements by the new restaurant management have brought this
restaurant to yet new levels of enjoyment. We took in the latest changes
when we visited this restaurant for a delightful evening meal. The room
was charmingly outfitted with white linen cloths over red and white
checked table coverings. Candles and small vases of flowers adorned
the comfortably sized tables. The new decor with upgraded artwork, parquet
floors, and wooden accents all contribute to the charming countrified
We began our meal with two staples of the Italian dairy menu: Antipasti
platter and Bruschetta. The Antipasti is a platter of cooked vegetables
served cold. We enjoyed the selection, and the sprinkle of pine nuts,
a pleasant addition. The Bruschetta, a tomato based pesto combination
served on toast, was very pleasurable.
it comes to thick doughy pastas with rich creamy sauces La Toscana does
not disappoint. There is a full choice of different types of pastas
made at the restaurant plant, served with the sauce of your choice.
My companion was pleased with his main course of ravioli with goat cheese
and creamy Alfredo mushroom sauce. I was delighted that La Toscana also
offered lighter, more slenderizing options. I chose the salmon dinner,
which was a lovely platter or fish, salads, and sliced baked potatoes,
proving that it is possible to eat an appetizing low-fat meal at an
Italian Dairy restaurant.
The fish dinner is on the high side of the menu, but La Toscana also
offers an assortment of economical dishes including pizzas, great for
family dining, ranging from NIS 35.
The delicious creamy Italian desserts are a highlight of the La Toscana
menu and are not to be missed.
