A genuine trattoria in the heart of crazy Temple Bar, Toscana buzzes with chatter all evening long and offers a popular pretheater menu. A Mediterranean slant to the simple dining room includes plenty of Italian landscapes, cream tones, and wood. A typical starter is the traditional Tuscan bean soup. The penne entrecôte is strips of Irish beef panfried with onions, garlic, and olive oil and tossed in a plum tomato–and-cream sauce. The meat and pizza dishes are also always reliable, and the Bailey's cheesecake with chocolate sauce is a dessert that will send you home with a smile on your face.
