THE WOODALNDS, TX -- Woodforest’s Pine Market will soon welcome another tenant when Tosca Italian Gourmet opens this fall.

The first Tosca Italian Gourmet opened in The Woodlands in January 2022. A second location in Cypress is slated to open in the spring. Pine Market will be the restaurant’s third location.

“We have many customers who live outside The Woodlands and who travel a long way to visit us,” said Romina Marchisio, store manager for Tosca Italina Gourmet. “So we decided to meet their requests.”

Tosca Italian Gourmet is a locally-owned bakery founded by the Schiavo family who wanted to bring Italian food culture to an area where they felt it was not easy to find authentic Italian cuisine.

The name Tosca is a callback to the landscape, wine and traditions of Tuscany. Tuscan products are not the only items on the menu.

“The menu of Tosca Italian Gourmet is based on traditional Italian recipes,” Marchisio said. “Italian food culture is very diversified and made of thousands of different combinations of the same ingredients depending on regions and local traditions.”

Customers will find an array of menu items, including pastries, breads, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, coffee, cakes, gelato and specialty items. Take-home family meals will also be available.

Pine Market is located at 791 Fish Creek Thoroughfare in Montgomery. The 40,000-acre retail center is anchored by Harvest Market and features 30 businesses, including Sugar Sugar, Wister’s Bar & Grill, Wo Sushi Fusion, Clean Juice, Grab N Go Tacos and Kustom Kart Pros. More businesses are slated to open this year, including Bespoke Cigar Lounge and Echoed Arts.

Homes in Woodforest are priced from the mid $300,000s to more than $1 million. Learn more at
