Welcome to Toscana, one of two specialty restaurants on Oceania’s ships. There’s no additional charge to dine here, although there is a limit to the number of times you can dine at Toscana on a single cruise, not always rigidly enforced, depending on which category cabin you booked.
The show begins with the bread basket, a work of art in itself, with, for those who like it, roasted garlic.
Beautiful Versace dishes and plates adorn the tabletops (there are plenty of tables for two). A waiter pushing a cart comes tableside with a wide selection of olive oils and balsamic vinegars.
The carpaccio is a good starter.
But so is the Insalata Caprese. You don’t have to choose. Have both.
The risotto comes without calories, until your fork moves it from the plate to your mouth, that is.
Also in the “let’s not think about calories” category, the desserts are delicious works of art.
The Parmigiano Reggianno is as large as a tire on a sporty Ferrari. Toscana represents dining in the best of Italian traditions.
