Tuscan Brick Oven Bistro in Freeport, Maine prides itself on using only the best fresh ingredients from local farms and businesses. The ingredients combine to make some unforgettable Italian-inspired dishes.

Tuscan Bistro has a full bar stock full with several Maine beers, ciders and wines. I was very excited see Shipyard's Pumpkinhead on tap. They served it was a tasty cinnamon rim. There's no better place than to kick of fall beer season than in Maine. 

Dinner began with the burrata caprese. Served with red and green tomatoes and crisp crustini, this was one of the best caprese salads Eat Up NE has ever tried. Other apps include Maine mussels, brick oven wings, antipasto, calamari and a meatball stuffed Portobello mushroom.

The menu is made up of brick oven pizzas, including white clam, fennel sausage & burrata and funghi. The pizza looks so good! I went for one of their homemade pastas. All of my favorites are on the menu including lobster mac & cheese, chicken parm and potato gnocchi. I loved their Bolognese, which consists of trumpet pasta, beef & sausage ragu and is topped with ricotta. It was amazing. I would order this dish over and over again.

Tuscan Bistro is also open for lunch, where diners can choose from several sandwiches including twin lobster rolls, bistro burger, chicken parm sandwich and a crispy cod pocket.

Tuscan Brick Oven Bistro is a new Eat Up New England Favorite. What food! Not to mention the ambience is beautiful, from the lighting fixtures to the bar. There are even small sofas for some lucky diners to sit on. There is also some outdoor seating while it's still warm out.
