When it comes to entrées, they have a wide selection of classic and seafood entrées, plus a selection of wood-fired baked pasta dishes and pizza. We found the Breaded Eggplant, the wood-fired chicken, breaded veal, and the wood-fired steak to be some of the best examples of their tasty lineup of classic entrées. And when paired with one of their signature sauces, the competition surely weeps.
For the seafood connoisseur in your family, Tuscan Slice serves up a delicious Tilapia plate served with homemade garlic mashed potatoes, cherry tomatoes, and it’s topped with a tasty creamy lemon caper sauce. This sauce is also served with the Crab Encrusted Tilapia, which we found to be another delicious option.
Wood-fired pizza is at the forefront of Tuscan Slice, and your choices begin with size options of a 10” or 14” pie. You have the choice to create your own pizza with an assortment of fresh and savory toppings, but we certainly recommend their Lady Margherita pizza which is hands-down one of the best Margherita pizzas we’ve ever had with its savory blend of basil, tomatoes, roasted garlic, topped with some fresh mozzarella, this pizza should not be missed. We also enjoy their Chipotle Chicken pizza made with chipotle marinated chicken, chianti red onions, fire-roasted jalapeños, fresh mozzarella, all with a black bean sauce making this pizza a great choice. No wonder the restaurant refers to it as the owner’s favorite.
When the sweet tooth kicks in, let Tuscan Slice take care of you with some of their delicious desserts such as a homemade tiramisu or a slice of New York-style cheesecake, which we highly recommend. One of our favorite desserts at Tuscan Slice has got to be the cannolis they offer, bringing a piece of Sicily right to Waxahachie.
