Nice people watching and your typical pub style food/great pizza

Getting a seat on the patio can be tough but inside is just as cool. It's almost like an italian style verion of a british pub. Food is good, pizza ok, good salad but I would not go here for much. Nice to hang out and just take time to eat. Some choices are a little too greasy.

Great corner patio. Service and food - ok. Not expensive! Excellent spot for people watching and enjoying the Little Italy vibe.

I decided to attend Toronto's Taste of Italy Festival for the first time and my friends and I walked the entire festival looking for a great sunny place to have lunch. Cafe Diplomatico had the best menu options (all places had special festival menus). We sat on their extended patio on the street in the sun. The servers were smiling... More

This old neighborhood staple is a great patio spot with very average, slightly over-priced food. Service is always hit or miss.

Patio and beer were great. Food was terrible. I had a pizza and my wife had a ceasar salad. Pizza ok, not great. Ceasar chicken not right, inedible. Both of us are crazy thirsty after the meal. Way to much salt. Even the coffee was terrible which used to be the reason I came to Cafe Diplomatic. next time beer... More

This is a great place to sit on the patio in the summer and watch a football match with a few beers and maybe some food. I would not recommend for a romantic date. The food is good, but you can get much better at Vivoli or Forchetta. The service is horrendous.
