Toscano is the only Italian Restaurant I know in Bangalore. It has 3 branches in Bangalore (as far as my knowledge goes). The branches are in Orion Mall (Rajajinagar), UB City and Forum Mall (Koramangala).

On 6-Mar-2019, I celebrated my 50th birthday. So, Deepshree wanted to treat me along with the family. However, all of us had work during the day. So, it was decided that we would all go to Toscano in the evening.

However, our plan seemed to be on wet wickets when Ranoo returned from college. She said that she needs to consult an Eye Specialist urgently as she was feeling some irritation in the eye. So, Deepshree took Ranoo to the Eye Specialist in RT Nagar at around 5:00 PM. By the time they returned, it was 8:00 PM. So, we could still make it to Toscano.

By the time Deepshree finished feeding Sheru (our German Shepard) and Baghira (our Rottweiler) and by the time everyone got ready, it was nearly 9:00 PM. Deepshree, Riya, Ranoo, Ujwala (my sister-in-law), Bhavitha (Ujwala’s daughter) and I started for Toscano, Orion Mall at around 9:00 PM.

Fortunately for us, we did not meet much traffic on the way. We reached Orion Mall by 9:25 PM. By the time, we parked our Innova and walked down to Toscano, it was 9:40 PM. We settled down on a six-seater table.

The menu was provided to us and we started scanning it. In the meanwhile, Toscano served us some bread and cheese. This is complimentary for anyone who visits Toscano.

We did not take time to decide on what we would have. This is because we come here pretty often. Though we have tried a variety of food here including Pizzas, Pastas, Steaks, Salads, etc, we ordered for Chicken de Toscano for 3 of us and Grilled Salmon for 2 of us. Bhavitha would share with Ujwala.

It took about 20 minutes before the food was served. So, we had ordered Coke for Riya, Ranoo, Bhavitha and I. And we ordered Fresh Lime Soda for Deepshree and Ujwala.

By the time we finished, everyone said that they were overfull. So, we relaxed by snapping some pictures and chit-chatting.

Am basically a programmer. Have proved to myself and quite a few people over the 24+ years that I am capable of programming on most platforms using quite a few tools for most problems. However, to be viable for earning a living, have learnt a few tricks and techniques of management. Whatever management techniques I have learnt, I try and convert to simple logic flows to keep my decision process simple and transparent. While managing, have been successful in programming a few individuals and teams to meet required objectives. Though I am not creative, I have enormous potential to innovate and extend creative ideas generated and shared by others.
