Italian entrepreneurs, restaurateurs and friends, Tommaso Morelato and Stefano Cavinato opened the doors to Toscana Divino, their first fine-dining concept restaurant, in 2012. Ever since, it has become a much-loved establishment within the thriving Brickell neighborhood in the heart of Miami, over the years hosting dignitaries, celebrities, major sports figures and community leaders.
Toscana Divino was among the first wave of authentic Italian restaurants to usher in the rinascimento, or "Renaissance" of Italian food that the City of Miami is currently experiencing, thereby also among the first to draw Miamians’ attention to the health and wellness benefits of the Italian lifestyle and slow food concept. This, coupled with a long-standing and primarily Italian-born team, has earned Toscana Divino the esteemed Marchio Ospitalità Italiana designation from the Italian Chamber of Commerce, the highest mark of authentic Italian cuisine awarded in the United States.
Morelato and Cavinato are known as much for being gracious hosts as they are for their devotion to their respective families and their dedication to the local business and charitable communities. Frequently seen at events both within and beyond the Italian expatriate community, they walk-the-talk of giving back in gratitude to the community that has warmly welcomed and supported them from the start.
In 2014, the partners opened their second restaurant, Ironside Kitchen Pizza & Coffee Co. that serves traditional Neapolitan pizza and authentic Italian dishes all made with fresh, seasonal ingredients. The restaurant features a beautiful, large outdoor dining patio and garden and a charming, indoor authentic Italian coffee bar. It's located in Miami Ironside, an urban art and design district in Miami's Upper Eastside.
More recently, Toscana Divino has evolved into a flourishing hospitality brand by partnering with real estate developers to be among the newest types of private dining establishments found in luxury living complexes in Miami and beyond. The first opened in 2016 in Oceana Key Biscayne and the second in 2018 in Oceana Bal Harbour.
