From the website: The desire to create a unique and versatile dining experience, together with a passion for Italian and Mediterranean cuisine, is what inspired founding director Chris Maggacis to open his first Toscani’s restaurant in 1998 at Garden City, Brisbane.
He worked hard in creating a venue where people could get together at any time of the day and enjoy superior service, a wide selection of tantalising food, fabulous coffees and cakes, and soak up a relaxed yet social atmosphere that truly sets Toscani’s apart. The goal was to provide all this and more, to a high standard yet at an affordable price.
It is not hard to see why Toscani’s was welcomed by the community and became an instant success in the Brisbane dining scene. Today, Toscani’s boasts 10 restaurants at exciting, convenient locations throughout Queensland and New South Wales.
