Ristorante La Toscana, a family owned and operated Italian
restaurant and bar located in San Rafael, was established in
1985. Original owners Marilyn and Paolo Mori, along with Chef
Giovanni Raccanello, grew up in Lucca, Italy and immigrated to
the U. S. in the late 1950s. They set out to create an atmosphere
that reminded them of home, and daughter Laura and son
Michael are keeping the tradition going over thirty years later.
Ristorante La Toscana is a place for any occasion, where locals
gather to eat, meet friends and family and celebrate with great
food and wine in the Italian tradition. La Tosacana offers a full
bar with flat screen TVs, al-fresco and private dining areas.
