La Toscana got great reviews on Degustantigua and since it’s virtually across the street and I was feeling lazy I decided to check it out. The reviews were right on the money.
I ordered the home made Chicken Tortellini with the Di Magro sauce which was amazing. It was a great mix of flavors and textures – though I generally prefer for my veggies to be a little more al dente. The sauce is made from Chard, Peas, Asparagus, Ham and Parmesean in a light cream sauce.
The ambiance leaves a bit to be desired. There is a back room so perhaps it’s a bit more cozy but I ate in the front room at a table right in front of the door. There is construction going on outside so the view was not that great and the two drunk brits at the “bar” didn’t help but hey, it’s the food that really matters.
I will definitely be back to La Toscana – perhaps to try the Spinach and Cheese ravioli that everyone raves about.
La Toscana is located at 1a Avenida Sur no. 17A in Antigua.
