New owner, name for Cucina Toscana
Salt Lake City’s Cucina Toscana restaurant has a new name and owner. The restaurant will now be called Toscana, said Ken Murdock, a local real-estate developer who recently bought the building and restaurant at 307 W. Pierpont Ave. Last week, the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control approved the transfer of the restaurant’s liquor license to Murdock. The restaurant changes come just 18 months after Valter Nassi, the face and personality behind Cucina Toscana, left to start his new restaurant, Valter’s Osteria.
