MEET OUR TEAM AT TOSCANO
GIANNI BETTI was born and raised in Regello, Italy, in the heart of Tuscany. After graduating from the Instituto
Alberghiero Aurelio Saffi in Florence, he and his brothers opened their first restaurant Fattoria degli Usignoli in
the countryside of Florence. After two successful years, Gianni came to the U.S. to work as a chef for Germano's Trattoria Petrucci in Baltimore, Maryland, where he met Linda, and Cibo e Beve became an idea. Then, Gianni returned to Italy to open Antica Posta Restaurant and Bed & Breakfast in the heart of the Chianti region, a food connoisseur's destination in the Tuscan restaurant guidebooks. In 2008 he came back to the U.S. to work as an executive chef with Posta Tuscan in Raleigh, North Carolina. He eventually joined his brothers in Atlanta as an executive chef and general manager for Antica Posta in Buckhead. In 2018 Gianni and Linda opened the doors to Cibo e Beve, and now, Toscano in 2021.
As an award winning chef, Gianni Betti has appeared on numerous television shows and has been featured
in multiple newspaper and magazine articles. His love of food and people make him a welcoming presence.

PRESS & PRAISE
Toscano is the creation of chefs Gianni Betti and Linda Harrell. Working together at an Italian restaurant
in Baltimore in 1993, they discovered they shared the same dream to create a restaurant specializing in authentic
Italian cuisine featuring unique family recipes and traditional ingredients from Italy.
Twenty-five years later, they opened Cibo e Beve in Sandy Springs with Gonzalo de Aristegui.
On September 1st, 2021 they opened the doors to their second restaurant
in Atlantic Station. Toscano Ristorante Italiano will feature one-of-a-kind Tuscan recipes and
select family favorites, along with speciality coffees, desserts, panini sandwiches,
pizza, craft cocktails and an award-winning wine list.

What an amazing restaurant!
I am a long time customer of Cibo e Beve
which is Toscanos sister restaurant.
Best Italian food you can get period.
FIVE STARS _ Henry Grayman
I have been so excited about having a good Italian restaurant nearby and was not disappointed! While I do miss Meehans Irish Pub, I’m so happy with what replaced it. I had the spicy chicken penne and an Aperol Spritz and both were delicious! Service was great and
I love what they’ve done with the interior.
We’ll be coming here often for sure.
