Food loving Pakistanis are ready to hit a café or restaurant at any time of the day – not only when they’re hungry, but sometimes just to spend some time with friends and family. This trend was once again witnessed when a newly relocated Tuscany Courtyard Italian restaurant made its way to the capital’s food scene again with a bang at a Red carpet launch hosted by Natty and top Models Kiran, Kanwal, Ammara and Sabeen and handled by Islamabad’s most famous PR Guru Rezz Aly Shah of Rezz PR and Events. Located in the heart of Lahore, 5-R MM Alam road Gulberg II, the expansive three storied Tuscany Courtyard had the main road blocked as Islooites rushed to get inside. The restaurant, which has been designed by Ali Umer Alvi, has two spacious floors.
There is also seating outside for those who want to take in the view and weather which is a trend in the upscale Kohsar Market. Inside, the restaurant has walls painted in subtle tones of beige and terracotta with big wide-paned windows that make one feel like they are sitting in an Italian villa. Owners Khurram Khan ,Sikander Bakhtiar, Aamir Rashid decided to Re open this restaurant after huge demand of Islooites and food lovers of the Capital and beyond . Tuscany name inspired the owners after their trip to Tuscany, a small village in Italy. Inspired by freshly baked, thin crust pizza and other Italian delicacies, the trio decided to open a place which would serve authentic Italian food instead of the regular desi/continental food most restaurants in Pakistan serve.
“We have completely original Italian recipes, with a wide variety ranging from two tomato bruschettas to thin crust, specialty pizzas. We also have a proper Italian bakery on the premises,” said Khan. “The best thing is that in Islamabad you can make use of the view and weather, which creates the best ambience for a restaurant.”
