So we were walking on college street and decided to give this place a shot! It looked very clean and cozy from the outside so we said why not! Once inside we asked if we could be seated by the window and the staff were more then happy to accommodate , they were kind enough to put two tables... read more

Last Saturday I went to La Forchetta for dinner with my wife. I had the seafood linguini and she had the sweet potato gnocchi. Both dishes were amazing! I've had seafood pastas in other places, but nothing like this. It reminded me of my home city by the ocean. The sauce of the gnocchi was outstanding. Besides, the service was... More

Was there early last week for business. Was interested when saw the menu online, not your typical College Street menu. Had the mussels as an appetizer, the broth was good, but mussels were over cooked. Afterwards followed it with their spaghetti (do not asky me why, just felt like something simple). The food was ok, but service was terrible. Management... More

We visited this little gem while we were in Toronto. The food was amazing! I had chicken ravioli and my partner had pizza. Ravioli was the best ravioli I have ever had, including in my frequent trips to Italy. Pizza was also very good. This place is dedicatedly worth a visit. If we were locals it would be one of...

This is a great place to have a moderately priced meal (the $30 prix fixe is good value). The food is very good, and the service is great -- attentive, professional.

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.
