Tuscan Oven A Trattoria on Urbanspoon

The restaurant scene throughout Fairfield County has certainly progressed over the years. Just as exciting as the newer ones, are the older, tried and true favorites that continue to thrive. Tuscan Oven, a Pirraglia Family owned and operated fine Italian restaurant is one such restaurant.

Its quirky location at the intersection of Route 7 and the “Super 7 Connector”, next to the DMV, has been questioned in the past. “It may seem a little odd,” says Owner/Father Anthony,” But we always loved the building and the property and we have our own parking lot.”

The cuisine remains true to the family’s Italian roots. Anthony’s father was from Naples and his mother from Milan. Anthony grew up in the Arthur Avenue section of the Bronx, amidst the many Italian food markets and mom and pop run restaurants. Wood-fired pizza, pasta, market fresh fish, chops, and a large selection of antipasti are on the large menu. “We tweak the menu with the changing seasons,” says Anthony’s son Jon Paul, “But our customers don’t like to see too much change.”

Some changes this past year include a new partnership with Wilton’s Ambler Farm. Tuscan Oven feels passionate about supporting local growers and artisans. A celebration Farm Table Dinner will be held in September to introduce customers to the Ambler Farm team.

Also being introduced in the restaurant this year is the The Vero Water bottling system, a process by which Tuscan Oven will be producing the purest possible still and sparkling water at the point-of-use, chilling and carbonating absolutely pure water only seconds before it arrives at your table.

Still enjoying the summer and looking forward to the fall, Tuscan Oven customers continue to enjoy one of the area’s most stunning stone patios, complete with a bar, seating for up to 100, and the warmth of the wood-fired stone hearth and cascading flowering plants. The patio was constructed two years ago and has been a beautiful addition to the neighborhood.

The Pirraglias have more plans for their restaurant – although, they promise that it will remain the same.
