This place is amazing. A short stroll from the ferry terminal, you don't even need to bring your car over to enjoy the incredible food. There is a reason we have celebrated 2 out of 3 wedding anniversaries here on their beautiful patio. The patio is only open during the warm months and only during sunny days. The food is top-notch. Be sure to check out the extensive special board for extra menu options. Highly recommend the pizza, but the pasta options we have tried we also delicious. Very reasonable prices for fine-dining quality.

We've come to Bowen Island many times over the years with one main goal. To go to Tuscany Pizza. Well, we hadn't been for a few years and decided to take a day trip for an early dinner. It did not disappoint! Absolutely delicious! Do yourself a favour and make the trip (we walk on the ferry). Make a reservation, order a few things and share.

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 were seated and it took over twenty minutes to get water and get our drink orders in. There were three other tables all waiting to pay when we sat down and didn't get to pay until after we got our drinks. The appetizer took another twenty minutes, but the first of two entrees came out immediately after it. The pizza took another thirty minutes after the first entree, but a table seated about ten minutes after we ordered got their pizza about ten minutes before us. The waitress failed to bring us a few random items we asked for. The appetizer and entree could have easily come out of the grocery store freezer section. The pizza was great. Pass on the regular food and sit down service. Get a pizza to go and enjoy it somewhere else.

WOW all these pizza reviews I had to go back to get one to go before I left the Island because the entrees were just too enticing! But yes the Pizza lives up to these reviews and then some! What an AMAZING little spot someone call the Food Network! Located in probably one of the most amazing spots in the world steps away from the ferry and moments away from tastebud bliss!!!! So going to Bowen for my girls special birthday weekend we asked at the Lodge on Bowen where to go for GOOD food and the response was aside from their breakfast the best place to go was Tuscany and boy were they right and then some! Had some olives that were served the way olives are to be served and thats nice and warm tossed in olive oil and fresh herbs then the Veggie kabob on a quoin and arugula salad tossed in lemon dressing! Which had my tastebuds ready for the Lemon crusted chicken served with Gnocchi it was on the special menu but umm hello you could box that and it would be the only TV dinner I have ever purchased. My special lady was in the mood for hearty and she found that in the Mushroom Cannelloni too bad the room didn't have a microwave because the leftovers would have made that the most happy micro in BC! Then the meal ended with chocolate mousse and no lie both me and my gal woke up in the morning thinking about that dam mousse WOW!!!!! Service was awesome Jordan the owner was dynamic and personable but not in your face and just by the product you can tell he has it all under control! We were so taken away that we are planning a day trip with a couple of couples once there very quaint patio opens, we were just that impressed! GREAT JOB!!!
