Mike 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 tempted to enjoy 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 you to partake in the weekday lunch buffet for a great price!
Tuscany offers a lunch, dinner, and special Saturday & Sunday Tuscan Brunch special. This is the best time to plan your visit as you can enjoy a diverse assortment of Italian specialties.
The "Tuscan Table" buffet is available weekends from 11:00am 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. Update: the buffet is now priced at $35 and includes an omelet bar, pastries, breakfast fare, and a diverse assortment of salads and entrees.
The buffet included 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 felt like there was more than enough options, especially for the budget friendly price tag.
The Tuscan Table is a great opportunity to try out different menu options without spending a fortune. The lunch and dinner menu are pretty pricey, so trying out the buffet is a a great alternative for those looking to keep costs down while still enjoy a great dining experience at a beautiful restaurant.
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 Tuscany - it truly is a gorgeous & unique place to dine. 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 feature an amazing design. 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. At Tuscany, you'll enjoy a great atmosphere, great food, and great service.
