‘Tiny Bites’ of News from Morso

SUMMER LUNCH MENU

“Ingredients are the essence of Tuscan cooking. Once you get the freshest ingredients, the most important work has been done.” 

 -Pino Luongo, from his cookbook, “A Tuscan in the Kitchen.”

With this as a cornerstone of Chef Pino’s approach to cooking, it is easy to understand why the menu at Morso changes frequently to highlight the freshest of seasonal ingredients.

-The Garden Terrace Lunch Menu, replete with salads and seasonal summer fare, is just the latest example of this. Come join us and savor the tastes of a Tuscan summer! Lunch is served daily on the Garden Terrace from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm.
