Located in the center of Mary Brickell Village, Toscana Divino offers elegant Tuscan dishes in an elegant setting amid the outdoor shopping/dining mall. Set back just far enough from South Miami Ave. to enjoy a quiet romantic date, the Italian eatery is the perfect spot to start or end an evening with bars & shopping just a short distance away. While we opted for an inside table, the outdoor seating is covered by massive canvas umbrellas with romantic lighting and a nearby fountain that blocks out Brickell’s background noise.
Now…the truffle menu…OH MY. Executive Chef Andrea Marchesin has created an all new menu of Italian favorites mixed with innovative techniques to embrace Fall flavors and the slightly cooler months of the season. We sampled the delightful Truffle Dinner, which meant each and every dish came with some type of the rich & luxurious treat incorporated. This menu is priced at $150/pp, so plan a great date night around it!
The truffle journey begins with Peschiola al Tartufo, a dwarf peach nestled on shavings of black truffle and resting inside of a champagne flute (of course), and was quickly followed by the rich Tartare di Vitello, a smooth veal tartare topped with thin slices of white truffle.
The dishes only get more decadent as the menu continues…Uovo In Camicia consists of an organic poached egg resting atop a mushroom sautee and draped in thin slices of white truffle, followed by homemade tagliatelle pasta in a parmesan butter and again topped with white truffle.
The star of the show is a Painted Hills filet served with creamy potatoes and roasted kale with…surprise…shavings of black truffle! Then, just when you think they couldn’t possibly do anything else with truffle – a lollipop-style dessert of Ecuadorian chocolate truffles are rolled in tiny shavings of black truffle for the grand finale!
Toscana Divino is open for lunch and dinner every day (check website for exact times) and offers brunch on Sundays. Browse the menu and schedule your next date night ASAP! www.toscanadivino.com
