From 2013:
One thing that qualifies the excellent Piccolina Toscana as a “neighborhood” place is the Sunday buffet. Another is the convivial bar. The clincher is authentic Italian food like salt-cod croquettes with horseradish aioli, and fried olives stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes and Gorgonzola. Finally, some iteration of Toscana has anchored Trolley Square for more than 20 years.

From 2010:
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.
