Amazing food and courteous service from start to finish. We ordered some drinks, the house bread, amazing saffron-based pasta and a specialty pizza (with my favourite - burrata cheese!!). A must for anyone wishing for a little taste of Southern Italian cuisine.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
