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!

I was stayed in Bowen Island for a week and ate at Tuscany Restaurant twice, I loved it so much. The service was friendly and quick; the atmosphere warm and inviting, but best of all was the food: delicious! I had the Pollo $ Pesto pizza, which was one of the best pizzas I've ever had. Their Caprese salad was... More

We had a great arugula salad. for dinner we had the linguine vongole without the seafood (sub chicken) and a cod dish with vegetables and risotto. The linguine was overcooked, chicken was lightly seasoned, bacon bit were hard. The cod was nice but the risotto was slightly overcooked. I'm a stickler for pasta done well and it wasn't done well...

After a lovely 2 1/2 hour hike we were hungry for our dinner! Our waiter said he was new to waiting tables , having "graduated" from clearing them! He was great, attentive, informative and happy to be there. Our food was very good, from our starter foccasia bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar to the fabulous salad for two... More

Assistance for mobility challenged member bad; there were ten of us, and the server refused to make individual bills, but said 2 of us each could share a bill, so it was only 5 bills...then said because we were 10 she would have to charge us a 15% gratuity as she didn't trust us to pay enough on the tip,...

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
