Two Italian-themed restaurants have opened on opposite sides of Tuscany Stone Road at Loop 1604.
Brusketa Ristorante, 18326 Tuscany Stone, is an independent restaurant tucked behind Kirby’s. The dining room is anchored in one corner by a wood-burning oven, where pizzas, steaks, tuna, portobello mushrooms and more are cooked.
The menu begins with antipasti that include roasted olives, octopus sashimi, carpaccio and frito misto of calamari and shrimp. Salads, such as a Caprese and a Caesar, and soups, including minestrone and tomato with basil are also available. Panini include a vegetarian option as well as a meat lover’s mix.
The pizza selection includes a Pork Lovers with pancetta, pepperoni and sausage; a Funghi with wild mushrooms; and a Magaña with white cheeses, anchovies, truffle oil and arugula.
There are numerous pasta dishes, Penne Diavola, Ravioli, Risotto Funghi, Spaghetti Bolognese, and fettuccine with either Alfredo or pesto sauce. Entrees include a rib-eye, a New York strip and beef tenderloin as well as a rack of lamb and salmon.
Gluten-free options are available.
