Ristorante Toscano's chef and owner John Bruno comes from a family of chefs. John's training comes from growing up in a family rich in Italian tradition and endless hours working in the restaurants of friends in Chestnut Hill, PA.
Family is key to John's vision at Toscano. He regularly visits Cousin Tony's store in Brooklyn, NY for family recipes and secrets and complements many pasta dishes with Nana Bruno's sauce recipes. Come to Ristorante Toscano and let our family feed your family!
Ristorante Toscano is located just north of Main and Broad Streets in Lansdale, PA. Parking is available on the street, or at the back of the gas station next door in a spots marked "213 North Broad St. Tenants".
We hope to see you soon!

Top o' the mornin' to ya! Our next Iron Chief Competition is this weekend, with a St. Patrick's Day theme. We're happy to announce our secret ingredients (yes, there is more than one - we couldn't make up our mind). Come in this weekend for a battle that features those two staples of the Irish diet: Potatoes and Whiskey. Our Iron Chief Menu is available Friday and Saturday nights this weekend, and it features a sample of each ingredient for each course. Let your server know which you preferred, so they can pass along the news to John "The Spud", who created the Potato menu, or Joe "Just Jack (Daniels)", who created our Whiskey contributions. Whoever gets the most votes gets bragging rights in Toscano's kitchen stadium, which for a Bruno, can last a long time. The menu costs $27.50 per person, not including tax or gratuity.
MENU FOR BATTLE IRELAND
Appetizer: Potato Leek Soup and Mama Iris' Whiskey-Braised Corn Beef Dumplings
Entree: Fish and Chips and Whiskey Lamb Stew
Dessert: irish Potatoes and Irish Whiskey Cake
May the luck of the Irish favor our chefs! Come in this weekend and vote for your favorite menu, or just enjoy the competitive air between John and Joe.
We are happy to announce that there is a pianist at Toscano's on the second Saturday of every month: local pianist Jerry Sena is joining us to share his extensive talent. Jerry was inspired to play piano while listening to the pianists at the dance school that his father directed - his father was the choreographer for Philadelphia's opera companies. Jerry enjoys sharing from that collection: opera themes, movie and Broadway musical themes, as well as classical piano and dance pieces. Jerry can also be heard Saturday mornings in Reading Terminal Market from 9 to 10 am.
First Friday is one of our favorite days of the month! On the first Friday of each month, two of our favorite piano players join us to provide an evening of live music. Jazz piano players Tom Linker and Gary Carpenter come to share their talents with us (they are also artists, and their work is on display at Toscano's). The music is always enjoyable, the food is always delicious - it is a wonderful place to be! Come join us for a great way to wrap up the week and kick off the month.
