The authenticity of traditional Northern Italian fare merges perfectly with the modern twists embedded in the menu at the Toscana Divino in Brickell. Since its inception in 2012, the restaurant continues to amaze and delight guests with healthy and mouthwatering ingredients that could satisfy the most critical food lovers. The delectable menu, tailored to the contemporary restaurant connoisseur, caters to brunch, lunch and dinner.
The Cured Meats and Cheeses are a fan favorite with many guests eager to try the large selection of savory, delectable traditional dishes like the porchetta, the housemade prosciutto cotto, pecorino, and burrata. The dishes are natural and organic ingredients prepared with sustainably raised meat, fresh fish and imported Italian ingredients to ensure the best and most authentic dining experience.
Antipasti dishes exemplify the restaurant’s vintage style, using various homemade recipes to deliver authentic and timeless tastes. The Vitello Tonnato, Tartare Di Pesce, and Polipo Alla Puttanesca are staples items on the menu and are highly requested by guests for their culinary perfection and ingenuity.
The extensive selection of homemade pastas, crafted with “Grano duro” flour, yellow semolina, water and organic eggs, include Gnocchi Al Coniglio Lucchese, Pici Senesi All’Anatra, and Risotto Carnaroli “Acquerello.” The Florentine Dinner, which serves two to three guests, features its own family-style menu delivering the feel of a friendly, Italian dinner with family and friends.
Main course selections include Branzino Ai Ferri, grilled Mediterranean Sea bass garnished with parsley and capers and accompanied by seasonal vegetables; Stinco Di Agnello, braised lamb shank served with potatoes and a smoked tomato; and Filetto Al Pepe Sichuan, 8-ounce grass-fed beef tenderloin paired with baby carrots and Sichuan pepper in a beef jus.
Leading the kitchen are two young and esteemed chefs including Executive Chef Jeff Maxfield, an innovative chef with an appreciation for Italy’s rich history and culinary practice, and Chef de Cuisine Andrea Marchesin, an Italian native with global experience and integrity for sustainable ingredients and practice. Toscana Divino attracts a large following with its authenticity and ingenuity and the future of this restaurant seems as delicious as its homemade pastas. #ToscanaDivino
