“Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Great place to walk around and hear live music ont he weekends. Realy ambiance and lively. Lots of action always in this part of town, and of course the great food that comes with Italy.

“Not sure what to say”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Not sure what makes this little Italy. There is a variety of restaurants, bars, shops, etc... Nothing really stand out to say that you are in a place that is prominently Italian.

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Unfortunately Toronto's Little Italy is nothing special – it's just a street like every other street in Toronto, except for the different, styled street signs. Directly behind the main street there are normal homes which didn't remind us of Italy.
The street itself was also disappointing: there are some italian restaurants but there are all sorts of Chinese restaurants between the Italian ones, which destroys everything (especially because Chinatown is not far away!).

“Great Italian Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

I ahve been to Little Italy many times. I go mostly to socialize at the wonderfully Italian cafe bars and to shop. Sitting at the outside patios and sipping espresso and watching people is a fun experience. As well I know that I can purchase authentic Italian food there and I can practice my rudimentary Italian.
