The large wine dispensary in the middle of Toast Enoteca and Cucina makes wine tasting affordable. There is a smaller dispensary with white wines to the side. You purchase a card, put money on it and your adventure begins. The cost is on the red screen above the spout. Choose your wine. Insert card. Pour and cheers!
With walls stacked high with bottles, the wine bar boasts an extensive wine list from around the world.
Toast Enoteca and Cucina also offers Italian food tastings. This is your traditional caprese salad. Fresh mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
If you are looking for heartier fare, there are several traditional Italian dishes to explore. The Fagioli Verdi all’Uccelletto is Italian sausage and green beans in a robust tomato sauce. It is deliciously rich and flavorful.
The key to a good pizza is a thin crust, and Toast Enoteca and Cucina has nailed it. This pizza is topped with kale and peppery arugula for an extra kick. Sharing is caring. This pizza is meant to be had with friends… over wine, of course.
For those of you with a sweet tooth, here is a sample of desserts offered at Toast Enoteca and Cucina. Hot lava chocolate cake, ice cream, berry compote, and strawberries. There is plenty to choose from, pleasing even the pickiest of eaters.
