My boyfriend and I passed by Todd English's Tuscany several times during our trips to the Mohegan Sun before finally deciding to check it out! We usually are always tempted to get the great buffet, however, on this occasion we wanted to try something different.
We went on a Friday afternoon to take advantage of both the "Tuscan Table" and also "Diva Fridays." This combination allows us to partake in the weekday lunch buffet for a great price!
The "Tuscan Table" lunch buffet is available Monday-Fridays from 11:30am until 3:00pm. It is usually priced at $22.95, however, since we went on "Diva Fridays" we got to take advantage of the 2 for $30 deal.
The buffet offered a wide assortment of Italian foods including: salads, pasta salads, meats, breads, soup, pasta dishes, sides, flatbreads, and desserts. I really enjoyed the roasted potatoes and squash. The tomato soup was also fantastic. The salads were plentiful and delicious. My only complaint was that some of the food was a bit too salty for my liking.
I would have preferred a few more vegetarian options, however, I still got plenty to eat. I guess I was better off filling myself with healthier salad and vegetable sides.
The Tuscan Table is a great way to try out different menu options without spending a fortune. The lunch and dinner menu are pretty pricey, so this is a great cost effective alternative to trying out the restaurant while enjoying the nice atmosphere.
Service was great, although limited because we ordered the buffet. The Tuscan Table is all self service except for the drinks. However, our waiter went back and asked about the ingredients in one of the desserts for me when I asked, which I appreciated.
I love the look of this restaurant. You can't miss the huge waterfalls while walking around the Mohegan Sun. It is located right in the middle of the main shopping area.
Both the indoor and outdoor dining areas have a great look. The outdoor patio has a bar and you can relax listening to the sounds of the waterfalls and also have fun people watching.
Todd English's Tuscany is a great stop for lunch on your day out at the Mohegan Sun. I highly recommend ordering the Tuscan Table to try out a great variety of menu items before going all out on dinner. Great atmosphere,great food, and great decor.
