Bowen's Best!

Tuscany is, hands down, my family's favourite resturaunt on the island. Charming, rustic atmosphere of a 2 story converted heritage home; attentive, friendly knowledgable staff; delicious Italian comfort food - you simply can't go wrong!

My review is of a take out order...... a friend and I picnicked in The Orchard and got a large chicken/pesto to go. I have to admit that I am not really a pizza person..... left to my own devices I never order it. But I generally enjoy it in a group situation when people have it; but as everyone... More

I'm a local resident who is dismayed and disappointed at Tuscany Restaurant. Before it changed hands it was the place to go on Bowen for great food creatively cooked. Now it's expensive, poorly prepared with sporadic service. I never recommend this eatery to off island folk.

Make a reservation - and then when you arrive you can relax! Food was delicious, portions were generous - Toscano salad for 2 was fantastic and could have served 4. Pricing was 'island' pricing - everything costs more on Bowen. Wine list is small but good variety. Service was fast and friendly even though our server was running up and... More

Arrived without a reservation at 5:30 on Saturday night and were lucky to get a nice table for 2 downstairs. We found it cozy thanks to the wood fired pizza oven! The food was very good...we had a pizza which was excellent, a Ling Cod special which was amazing, and a flatbread appy (took full advantage of the pizza oven!).... More

This used to be one of my favourite restaurants, both on the island and in Vancouver. Change of ownership could be the difference? The menu was changed, the service is spotty now. Went with friends in the summer and my meal arrived 30 minutes after the first person at our table got their meal! Not much of an apology for... More

The al fresco setting here was very pleasant. We had a very nice pizza (pollo e pesto) and a good and elegantly-presented dessert (strawberry cake), but the chorizo pasta had a minimal sauce and a chunk of the pasta was clumped together and undercooked. Unfortunately, the service was also consistently poor. We had made a reservation in advance, and there... More

We decided to come here because it seemed to be the only place other than the pub to offer a dinner menu. We had to wait a while for a table and while waiting noted a number of young kids bussing tables and making pizza. The waitresses were also clearly poorly trained and there were not enough of them. We... More
