We are thrilled to announce that Chef Harvey has just launched his new “Carne ai Ferri” menu, featuring Tuscan-style steaks, chops, and filets.

Click here for our current menus.

The word carne means meat or meats in Italian.

And ferri means literally irons as in the iron rods of a grill.

Chef Harvey’s menu includes classic cuts like the bistecca fiorentina and a 16-ounce bone-in grass-fed veal chop (among others). Each cut is meticulously prepared using extra-virgin olive oil and sea salt and is served with rosemary potatoes and sautéed spinach — in classic Tuscan style!

Tagliatelle alla Bolognese, a gold standard for great Italian cuisine

best bolognese in austin

Chef Harvey is always experimenting and testing out new recipes and ingredients in the kitchen.

But that doesn’t mean he neglects the classics, like his awesome Tagliatelle alla Bolognese, made with homemade pasta (rolled out daily) and a meat sauce that any mamma from Bologna would be proud of.

Like his bistecca fiorentina or his panna cotta, Tagliatelle alla Bolognese is one of those gold standards for great Italian cuisine.

And Chef Harvey’s got it covered!

Tuscan-style beef, they way they do it in Italian “ranchers country”

best beef steak austin

Most people think of Italian food as pasta and pizza and maybe risotto. They don’t realize that Italians also love to eat steak. And unless they’ve been there themselves, they probably don’t know that the best place to eat steak in Italy is in Tuscany.

That’s because since antiquity, Tuscany has always been “ranchers country.” Even today, some of the best beef in the world is raised and fed on Tuscan pastures.

Even though he studied Italian cuisine in northern Italy, it was in Tuscany (central Italy) where Chef Harvey Harris landed when he started working professionally in Italy. And Tuscan cuisine has always been the centerpiece of his authentic Italian menu at Siena Ristorante Toscana.

Currently, Chef Harvey is serving a wood-grilled, grass-fed beef tenderloin filet, with Gorgonzola, black truffle beef sugo, roasted potatoes, smoked bacon, onions, and fresh sage.

How to donate to earthquake relief efforts in Italy

A 6.2 earthquake struck Central Italy yesterday, claiming at least 241 lives and devastating some of the region’s most famous hilltop villages.

Here’s how to donate to relief efforts:

Ammado is the official micro-donation platform for the Italian Red Cross.

Here’s the link for donations to the Italian Red Cross and earthquake relief efforts. Donations can be made using a credit card and don’t require an Italian social security number (Italian micro-donation channels require one).

Here’s a link to information on what the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is doing on the ground in central Italy to aid recovery.
