Liberty Way’s newest Italian bistro, Brio Tuscan Grille celebrates National Ravioli Day March 20-23 by offering 50% off its famous ravioli dish. This is a limited time offer; so, don’t hesitate to make reservations today at reservations@BrioItalian.com.
Brio Tuscan Grille is known for the homemade pastas, roasted chops, specialty steaks and wood-fired pizzas. But, it’s not just the food that makes this grille a fantastic place to mingle. The word “Brio” in Italian means “lively or joyful” which pretty much describes the atmosphere of this establishment.
The interior transports visitors from Liberty Way to the heart of the Venetian paradise and the walls into an Italian home. With its hand-crafted Italian mosaics, plastered walls and arches, and fine marble countertops, visitors will feel right at home. This location offers a wonderful patio area, with a fully stocked bar, which was designed to enhance get-togethers and celebrations.
* Spicy Shrimp & Egg Plant: generous pan seared shrimp with Romano crusted eggplant topped with a creamy black pepper cream sauce. (This is a unique and creative twist to a shrimp dish. It teases the taste buds and leaves the mind craving more). $11.95
*Margherita Flatbread: a thin crispy crust topped with fresh, ripe, bright red tomatoes topped with a generous amount of mozzarella cheese. (This flatbread delight presents itself as a beautiful plate of colorful food that is light but also nutritional. The crust is thin and crispy, a wood-fired creation, with the perfect amount of toppings leaving the belly satisfied but not overly full- perfect). $13.15
No recommendations. I haven’t personally tasted anything from the brunch menu. That’s my next trip.
*Filetto Di Manzo Toscano with Crab and Shrimp Cake: a perfectly grilled filet with a think patty of crap and shrimp grilled to perfection. This dish is served with homemade, creamy mashed potatoes accompanied with grilled, seasonal vegetables. (the filet was grilled to perfection. There are not too many places that can cook a medium rare steak perfectly, but this steak was tender, juicy and grilled just right. The highlight of the meal was the crab and shrimp cake. I lived in the south near the ocean where seafood was readily available and meal creations were delightful. I haven’t had a good crab cake since I left and moved back to Ohio. But, this…. my oh my, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. It was the most delicious cake I’ve ever eaten. Highly recommended and worth every penny). $26.95 for a 5 oz. filet; $34.95 for a 8 oz. filet. (5 oz. filet in the photograph)
* Chef’s Seasonal Dolchino- Fire-roasted Apple Dumplings with Vanilla Ice Cream. (This was the seasonal dessert that was offered at the time of my visit to Brio. It’s not always offered but it is delightful. The secret in the taste is the fire roasted apples and the rich and creamy vanilla ice cream pair together to create an unforgettable combination. The dumpling is crisp and light. Even if this is not the chef’s selection, I guarantee each and every chef’s special will be just as delightful. SIDE NOTE: I’m a chocolate lover but I did not care for the chocolate layer cake. There was some sort of hard caramelized bottom layer to it causing confusion to the cake.) $3.95
