If, like me, you often traverse the Davao to Bukidnon highway, chances are, you’ve also spotted this quaint, unassuming place at Barangay BuDa (Bukidnon – Davao border), Marilog District. Marked by an Italian flag proudly swaying along with the wind, La Toscana Il Cielo is an authentic Italian restaurant run and owned by the Lucarini couple.
Apart from the fact that this Italian restaurant is located in the middle of lush vegetation, mountainous area in Bukidnon and at the outskirts of a small, quiet town, La Toscana Il Cielo BuDa’s other beauty is the fact that they only use ingredients straight from Italy and the herbs and vegetables come from their 3-hectare farm right there at BuDa.
By the way, “La Toscana” means “the Tuscan” while “Il Cielo” means “Sky” so if you put the words together, this is “The Tuscan Sky” Italian restaurant.
La Toscana Italian restaurant is located at the outskirts of BuDa proper. If you’re traveling to Bukidnon from Davao, you’ll find an Italian flag on the left side of the road before you reach BuDa proper.
Thank you very much to Griffith Boniel for sharing these photos!
