The pastas and braised meats are better than average at this no-nonsense northern Italian restaurant, a sister to Pleasantons always-popular Fontina. Stick to the basics, the Caesar salad and spaghetti with wonderfully tender meatballs. Anyway, the most appealing thing about La Toscana isnt on your plate its the view out to the convincingly Mediterranean courtyard at Salvio Pacheco Square.
