Not content to leave Houston without getting his fill of quality Italian cuisine, world-famous singer and multi-instrumentalist Andrea Bocelli returned to Tony's on Thursday evening for another delicious meal. His second there in two nights.

Bocelli first caused a stir and enjoyed a late-night dinner there following his packed performance at the Toyota Center on Wednesday.

"(Thursday night) he and four guests enjoyed truffles, an array of house made pastas, 55-day dry aged sirloin and puntarelle salads," Scott Sulma, the restaurant's general manager, tells CultureMap. 

The latter item, Sulma explains, utilizes a type of green native to Rome that the restaurant flies in. The Italian tenor, who again dined in the intimate Wine Cellar, was particularly impressed. 

What's more: Bocelli requested that Tony's cater a private lunch on Friday before his U.S. Winter Tour continues to Dallas. There, he will perform with conductor Eugene Kohn, soprano Maria Aleida and special guest mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins at the American Airlines Center.
