Rino's Tuscan Grill

1105 E. Las Olas Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301 | Fort Lauderdale | 954-766-8700

Location Description:

This cozy (40-seat) and romantic country-style Italian trattoria - it's even on a canal! - has its share of pros and cons. It is pricy, and portions track toward the small end of the spectrum. Quibbles about service and built-in tips aside, Tuscan can be counted on for some decent Italian dishes - though most of those are meat/seafood items rather than typical pasta-fied fare. It's also a nice place for an upscale vegetarian meal, as Tuscan's veggies are farm-fresh and its salads vibrant and varied. Well-heeled tourists looking for something special while on a date seem to wander in frequently; the Las Olas location has hosted various restaurants over the past decade and locals haven't exactly warmed to the new vibe.
