Usually I'll have my chicken sandwich when I come here. It's always fresh and to top it off a waffle with ice cream.its so delicious. Prices are fair.

The service can be better but when you go for ice cream and coffee I don't mind waiting if the ice cream is so good it melts in your mouth!!! I come here every year when im in town. Grazie

We stopped here on a Saturday night for dessert after attending a show with another couple. It was busy (around 10pm) so we figured it must be delicious ice cream and desserts. We entered and walked up to the counter where the ice cream was and instead of being greeted, a man behind the counter just said 'are you eating... More

I have been going here for years and the service is still horrible. The coffees aren't that great, the desserts are ok, the crepes are decent. I go for the strawberry crepes. Delicious! The ice cream served with it is pretty nasty though. Other than that, it has a really nice patio and it's a great hangout. Just don't expect... More

Went here with my friends many years ago but didn't really make an impression othern than the breezy patio. Since we were in the area, decided to treat my kids to gelato and coffee for myself. Knowing its Italian, I expected a good, robust cup of coffee to go with the gelato we ordered. However, upon asking what type of... More

....when you're sitting on the patio at the Sidewalk, enjoying the first gelato of the season! Never fails to delight! This time, we both chose an over the top delicious and decadent waffle with fancy toppings and the wonderful gelato. Heaven for only $8.95! There are many other sumptous ice cream treats plus pastries. Sandwiches for lunch. Nice to people... More

A superior espresso with a good canoli. The place is very busy serving sophisticated ice creams and gelato.

After an awesome dinner at Vivoli we always stop for espresso, cappuccino and cannoli. This place does em up old school. A little raspberry Tartufo on the side if there's room, or skip that whole idea and SHARE one of their AMAZING waffle creations, THEY ARE NUTS............

Staying in Little Italy

Neighborhood Profile
Little Italy
Toronto's Little Italy is a city hotspot for cafe culture and nightlife. There's something for everyone in Little Italy, apparent from the cross-section of clubbers in glitzy dresses, and elderly couples arm-in-arm heading to their favorite wine or pasta spot. Cafes spill onto the wide sidewalks, pool lounges and bars are always teeming with noise and activity, and both outdoor and indoor marketplaces are packed with fresh fish, cured meats, and pungent cheeses. All of the activity makes it a perfect spot for people-watching, especially over a nice glass of red wine or a quick and sumptuous slice of pizza at one of the many eateries or trattorias in the area.
