Tuscan Blu

Authentic Italian in Downtown Raleigh

Our Story

We have been in the Historic Depot since 2009

Tuscan Food from a Tuscan Chef....


Maurizio Privilegi has opened an authentic Italian restaurant inside "The Depot" building in downtown Raleigh, NC. The chef prepares dishes from all over Tuscany with new feelings of creation. We use fresh organic products from local farms right here in Raleigh. We also import authentic mediterranean products directly from Italy. We even grow our own fresh herb (rosemary. basil, prezzemolo).

     Enjoy great food for affordable prices with a casual dining experience. The broad variety of items will keep you coming back time and time again to sample more. The menu also allows for large groups to come together, even with varying tastes. We also provide gluten free pasta and great vegetarian dishes, now including Rice Pasta and Seaweed which is also a low-calorie alternative.

     Tuscan Blu is located in a historic building with the train station visible from the window and a cobble stone parking lot. Tuscan Blu serves a unique experience for visitors of all nationalities.
