Cheesecake dolchino
Brio Tuscan Grille is officially open in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. The place was abuzz with activity during its opening last night and I was happy to be there on the first night. There's nothing like an opening. There was an excitement in the air, staff from other restaurants were training and the place was sparkling. You should always give restaurants some time to perfect things, but based on what I experienced last night, Brio is ready already a well-oiled machine.

Brio is one of the few places were I order wine. They big you a big ole' glass and it's priced right. So, I started with a glass of Merlot. They have great apps. I always have their bistecca salad, which is half a head of iceberg lettuce, Gorgonzola cheese, tomatoes and bacon. It's served ice cold with a steak knife for cutting into it. Wicked good. I also enjoy their tomato and mozzarella caprese. For the main course, I tried their "pasta pesto," with angel hair, grilled chicken, onions tomatoes and peppers. Delicious. They have many pasta entrees. I can also recommend their "campenelle carbonera," but be sure to bring your appetite, its a big dish! Other menu options include a variety of flatbreads, steaks and seafood dishes.

One of the things that I really like about Brio is their dessert options. It's impossible not to order a dessert because the waiters always bring a tray out to tempt you. They have regular-sized sweets, but I always go for one of their "dolchinos," a smaller portion of their bigger desserts. I love their cheesecake dolchino and went for it last night. They are only $2.99 and worth every penny.

Brio is located in the new Chestnut Hill Square development. Be sure to check it out before the new Wegman's opens because by then, the parking lot with be a disaster.
