I keep on hearing about all these great restaurants in Toronto, but every time I go to something new and trendy I wind up spending a fortune for tiny portions of some trendy new dish, and leave unsatisfied. So I decided to pretend I was just visiting, and did what I do when travelling... checked out internet for local restaurants.... More

Rosina, your son and staff have created such an amazing fall/winter menu. I felt like I was eating at my mothers table! Thank you for always creating Calabrese style dishes! Looking forward to seeing you again.

The restaurant was a cozy setting, and the service was good, but nothing that stood out. The pasta tasted average, I had the butternut squash pasta, and my husband had the spaghetti and meatballs. It was an alright place, but I wouldn't return.

How much more authentic and real can you get when you have your mom cooking? Everything is done from scratch. I got to meet Sra Rosa who is one of the nicest Italian ladies you will meet. She is a great cook. This restaurant is family run and that's what makes it one of the best places to go to.... More

Our first night in Toronto calls for Italian food and in Little Italy. We did have reservations, which was good, because it looked like it filled up quickly that evening. The restaurant is quaint, like a true Italian restaurant. Family owned with Momma's recipes which is what called to us to select this place. The food was really delightful, with... More

What a wonderful meal! We arrived early as we were attending Second City that evening. Lisa took wonderful care of us and made some excellent suggestions. Everything that we ordered was excellent and we are very particular about our Italian food! The Bauletti di Zucca was one dish we enjoyed as well as the Gorgonzola Pizza. Highly recommend

The food was out of the world good! I had a lemon ricotta ravioli with lamb sausage and squash. It was one of the best meals I've had in a long time! Had room for dessert which was an excellent chocolate cake with raspberry sauce, OMG!

The combination of pizza and pasta is unparalleled. The authentic Italian cuisine made for a extremely warming experience that I would undergo again, and again. I've found my new favourite restaurant.
