It's from Monday to Friday with a different menu of Italian inspired cuisine every day. The guests can choose one out of two options from appetizers, main courses and desserts.
This is the menu when I was there last Thursday.
The dining area of Scusa.
Before the appetizer came out, each one of the guests were served with the Scusa's signature homemade bread filled with Fontina cheese.
I was so happy when my order, the tuna salad with julienne vegetables, tomato salsa and basil micro green was served in front of me. The taste couldn't be wrong. Light and fresh. Tuna was medium rare seared for 2 minutes, marinated with mustard and mixed herbs and pepper, grated carrot, paprika, zucchini and lemon dressing.
Canellini bean soup
A well cooked of Beef Involtini with Tuscan potato style, asparagus and foie grass emulsion. I adore the aroma of the thyme, rosemary and sage. These aromatic herbs were just perfect for the juicy and tender beef.
Asparagus wrapped inside the Beef Involtini, layered with beef bacon.
Seared Salmon medallion with mashed potato, brocolini and tomato chutney.
I was tempted to choose this Crisp caramelized apple with vanilla sauce and mixed berries compote which according to the other guests was totally delicious.
Instead, I had this ordinary Peach sorbet for my dessert.
