Located across the street from Hingham Harbor in the 1910 Granary Marketplace building, this beautiful Italian-inspired restaurant was created by founders Ed Kane and Greg Acerra. A step inside reveals exposed brick, soaring ceilings, imported tiles, mahogany woods and an open kitchen where Executive Chef Brian Hennebury’s creativity comes to life. Named after a famous Puccini Italian opera, Tosca brings to the South Shore a sampling of Italian culture with an upscale rustic charm.
We visited Tosca recently for an early evening dinner in the main dining room. There is also an adjacent Wine Room where you can enjoy live music every Friday and Saturday night. After sitting down, the server presented us with an iPad cocktail list that featured everything from a traditional gin martini to a spicy beach fire cocktail. A basket of fresh baked bread and an addictive side of black olive, rosemary and extra virgin olive oil for dipping followed.
