Learn to Make Pasta (or Just Eat It) at Tuscan Kitchen

Next time you find yourself craving an Italian meal, consider heading over to Tuscan Kitchen. This Boston restaurant prides itself on producing authentic Italian cuisine using traditional techniques. Consider starting your meal with a fresh caprese salad or some lemon garlic scampi to whet your appetite. Popular main courses include the house-made ravioli (stuffed with your choice of cheese or mushroom and prosciutto), as well as wild boar ragu and saltimbocca (pork tenderloin with pickled ramps).

Whatever you choose, you'll be able to enjoy it in the restaurant's modern, upscale dining room, which features plenty of rustic chandeliers, leather banquette seating throughout the room, and a staff of attentive, efficient servers. One final detail that that sets Tuscan Kitchen apart from other restaurants is that it regularly opens its kitchen to the public with group cooking lessons. Sign up for one of these sessions and you'll find yourself working side-by-side with the head chef, rolling out pasta dough, chopping herbs, and layering tiramisu.
