Tuscan Prime took the cautious route with a soft opening in February while the pandemic still made dining out unpredictable. But word flew quickly on social media and many diners became anxious to celebrate a dynamic new concept across town from its sister restaurant, Carpaccio. Brunch was quickly added Friday through Sunday and the buzz is still going strong.

Launching a business venture, whether one has experience or not, can be a difficult undertaking and the road to the ribbon-cutting ceremony is filled with many twists, turns, and potholes. Throw into the mix opening a new business in an almost post-pandemic period and it’s understandable why it’s important to have dotted the I’s and crossed all the T’s.

Bold claim incoming... Tuscan Prime might be the best overall restaurant in Annapolis. Excellent food (including dessert). Stellar service. Amazing atmosphere. And unique touches you won't find anywhere else. It's the total package.

Our amateur photographer loved touring and taking some pics of the beautiful space too!
