The philosophy at Toscana has changed to emphasize sharing, both in terms of portions, but also at the community table where you are going to make friends with others who appreciate the Toscana approach. So San Fran.
Wilmingtonians have an appetite for upscale pizza, as evidenced by the popularity of the brick oven gourmet pies at Toscana Bar + Grill. Chef and owner Dan Butler, known to legions of Facebook fans as Big Chef Guy, is the mix-and-match king. He understands the happiness he imparts when he marries roasted chicken, caramelized onions and Gorgonzola on a perfectly textured crust. He has other tricks: figs with Gorgonzola and truffle honey, as well as prosciutto with goat cheese and arugula.
