Stay Cozy This Winter with Risotto at BRIO Tuscan Grille


During winter time, I crave comfort food to keep me warm and fuzzy on a SoCal chilly day…

Last week, I dined at BRIO Tuscan Grille at Irvine Spectrum, and was in Risotto heaven! BRIO (means “lively” or “full of life”) is a “polished casual” restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. BRIO is an elegant family friendly restaurant that serves up Tuscan favorites.

BRIO is a wonderful place to dine with family and friends. We look forward to dining here because it is always an amazing palatable experience. The exceptional staff also makes our visits worthwhile.

Now through March 25, foodies can savor amazing Risotto dishes that are melt in your mouth DELICIOUS…
