Saturday night a big group of Mat's family gathered for supper at a place in Stoney Pointe Shopping Center called Brio Tuscan Grill. Tuscan is an upscale Italian restaurant built on the motto, "To eat well is to live well". Those who know me personally know that I would whole heartily agree with that statement.
Brio's atmosphere was fairly typical for that shopping district, dim lighting, soft music and lots of seating.
Brio is a national chain with most of it's restaurants concentrated in the south east.
At Brio I ordered a chopped salad with braised beef fettuccine. The pasta was a mix of braised pulled beef and marinated mushrooms. The chopped salad was wonderful as was the fettuccine. I thought that the prices were a little high, but overall the food was very good.
