I have been coming to this restaurant since my first visit to Bucerias in 2008. It is really a great family story. When the son of a lovely Italian couple fell in love with a Mexican girl, Mom and Dad moved from their home in Italy to Bucerias to support their son's new marriage. They opened Toscana Mia. Having met "mama and papa" many times, they are the epitome of Italian hospitality and love of good food. Today, mama and papa are back in Italy taking care of affairs and now the son and his beautiful Mexican wife run the restaurant.
It is truly an experience unlike anything else in Bucerias. First of all, the food is amazing. The homemade pasta is to live for. The bread that is served with the meals is now made by the daughter-in-law and is excellent. My husband has had the chicken parmesan twice now and says the vegetables that come with it are some of the best he has ever eaten. The pizza is also fabulous and is probably my favorite pizza in the entire PV area.
Last night we went to celebrate Valentine's Day at Toscana Mia. This is the first time we have made reservations and we are very glad we did. Right away, we were given small flutes with champagne, and then a special heart-shaped bread with salmon cream on top. Dinner was amazing and then it was topped off with a sweet Mandarin cocktail on the house and tiny heart shaped chocolate brownies. Service is great but there is an ambience here that is definitely reminscient of Italy. It's noisy and busy and you feel like family by the end of your first visit.
If you are looking for quiet and romantic or a great view, this isn't the place. But if you feel like you'd love to be part of an Italian family for the night, Toscana Mia is the closest thing to that outside of Italy.
