In this age of cocktails and mixology, it's refreshing to slip into Toscana in Brentwood. The dinner space at this Italian restaurant is airy and bright, with crisp white tablecloths holding up dish after dish of al dente pastas and simple tomato sauces. But the bar at Toscana is a decidedly different take, with long communal tables and sturdy barstools. Couples can find themselves slipping comfortably into a $100 bottle of Italian wine by candlelight, while after-dinner drinkers can sip pleasantly on the Monte Bianco, a lemon sorbet blended with Ketel One, prosecco, a touch of elderflower liqueur and a dusting of ground coffee.
