Casual osteria-style dining venue features authentic Tuscan wood-fired grill cuisine
May 29th, 2017
Modelled on traditional osteria-style Italian dining experiences – updated with a contemporary sensibility of understated sophistication – Namo Tuscan Grill launched in early 2017 within a street front space at the historic Rex Hotel in central Saigon. An authentic Tuscan grill cuisine is complemented with top quality regional Italian wines – with seating at either the taverna style central bar – or in the relaxed ambience of the main dining area. Established by the team behind the successful Namo Artisanal Pizzeria, also in the central District 1 of Saigon, Namo Tuscan Grill serves lunch and dinner daily.
Design Traditional wood-framed windows overlook the bustle of Pasteur Street, while the earth tones and timber-panelled ceilings of the restaurant interior evoke the character of Tuscan dining. The central Mercato bar and open kitchen dominate the interior, while spacious table settings on the charcoal tiled dining room floor space enhance the elegant dining atmosphere.
Tuscan Grill Cuisine At the open kitchen, the classic Tuscan grill dishes are prepared by the culinary team under Italian head chef Ivan Barone. Highlights from the menu include dishes made with the flavourful produce of Tuscany such as the grilled porterhouse steak Bistecca Fiorentina; and freshly made varieties of pasta exemplified by the ricotta-infused Gnudi dumplings. And complementing the rustic cuisine, a well-curated wine list showcases top-quality wines from Italy’s premier wine regions at approachable prices.
Namo Tuscan Grill is open Monday to Sunday – serving lunch, all-day drinks, and dinner. Upcoming menu promotions and events can be found on the Facebook Page.
