La Toscana: Buon Appetito!

La Toscana: Buon Appetito!

Giovanni and Gabbi

La Toscana is serving classic Italian cuisine with a modern twist

If expertise and experience count, then La Toscana will be a welcome addition to Chiswick’s dining scene. Gabbi, the Head Chef, has cooked in restaurants in Tuscany and London for 30 years and Giovanni, the Manager, used to run Heathrow’s Diplomatic Suite, where his regulars were kings, queens and heads of state. ‘I’d actually retired,’ he admits. ‘But after two weeks, I couldn’t stand it. Now I’m really enjoying working in Chiswick.’

The pair joined forces at La Toscana six months ago. ’Our culinary philosophy is simple,’ explains Gabbi. ‘We want to create authentic, vibrant flavours. We import the finest ingredients from Italy, we make our own fresh pasta and we specialise in delicious fish dishes.’ Giovanni has introduced stylish little touches such as linen table cloths and napkins and the duo has put together a tempting wine list with an excellent choice of house whites and reds.

With daily specials, great value set lunch offers and a wonderfully warm ambience, La Toscana is the perfect party location. Oh, and do try the tiramisu. ‘It’s the best in town,’ smiles Giovanni. ‘It’s my secret Tuscan recipe. I’ve taught Gabbi – but he’s sworn to silence!’

KEEP THINGS LOCAL IS A MEDIA BUSINESS WITH A UNIQUE LOCAL FOCUS

The company publishes four flagship magazines (Chelsea Locals, Chiswick Locals, Richmond Locals and Hammersmith Locals) with more launches planned in London and across the UK. The prime focus of each of these quarterly magazines is to showcase and support the independent traders and small businesses who do so much to give these areas their individual retail character and community spirit. This is achieved through dedicated advertorials which are written, designed and photographed by an experienced team lead by Neil McKelvie.

In every issue, these advertorials are complemented by feature articles which turn the spotlight on different aspects of neighbourhood life and interviews with notable local figures.In addition to appearing in the magazines, every advertorial is also published in the Keep Things Local newsletters, on the website and on social media. Get in touch to be featured in our Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring issues.
