About Us



About Us

Tuscany Ristorante Italiano is a classic favorite among the locals and tourists alike. We are located at the corner of Longhill Road and Olde Towne Road in Williamsburg. We are a fine Italian restaurant that offers our guests a taste of true authentic Italian dishes. The restaurant is co-owned by Aldo Bertuglia and Kate Huff. Aldo is responsible for everything in the kitchen and Kate is responsible for the guests and front employees.

 

We offer a magnificent selection of the finest authentic Italian dishes. We do not take short cuts. All of our dishes are made to order, which means that you can expect to have a dish where the ingredients and sauces are prepared and made on site after you place your order.

 

We offer more than spaghetti and meatballs. So do not be afraid to explore beyond your ordinary pallet. Have a glance at our menu and photo gallery (currently under construction) to see what tempts you.

 

In addition, we offer catering services and provide a spacious venue for birthday parties, graduation parties, baby showers, bridal showers and other special occasions. We have a stage area that is ideal for DJs or other entertainers.
