As if a five-page menu wasn’t hearty enough, Toscano Italian Grill recently added several new dishes. Now, in addition to its Italian eats — including calzones, strombolis and signature pasta dishes such as eggplant Parmigiana or fettuccine primavera — Toscano also serves more Arabic foods.

For example, there is now scratch-made falafel served three ways. It can be ordered as an appetizer, featuring nugget-sized falafel hunks for 75 cents apiece, and it can be ordered as a sandwich. Or, Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., it is available as a lunch combo that comes with a falafel sandwich and a side of fries.

Additionally, grape leaves stuffed with a mixture of rice, meat and spices have also been added to Toscano’s lengthy list of appetizers.

But between Toscano’s classic Italian favorites and new authentic Arabic eats, its menu spans the gamut, offering wings, subs, seafood and more. It showcases a delicious lineup of New York-style pizzas, which for the remaining days in October are all on special for $3 off regular prices.

Then, beginning in November, Toscano will roll out a new deal. Throughout the month, customers who spend $20 or more can get a dessert for half-price.

Dessert choices include deep-fried options such as Oreos, Reese’s and cheesecake. But be warned: If Toscano’s five-page food menu didn’t make your meal decision tough enough, then the restaurant’s decadent dessert menu will really take the cake.
