Great Sunday afternoon to check things out at the Italian Fest on College street. We came across this place and we were promptly accommodated at a table by the terrace. A very courteous waitress took our orders and within a few minutes we were furnished with home made sangria, a large dish of antipasti and a prosciutto sandwich. Nice and... More

We had some great gelato here on a sunny June Sunday afternoon. This is a charming and inviting restaurant, apparently the oldest gelato place in Toronto. You can sit down or take your selection to go. A must see in Little Italy!

I take my honey there often for a nice breakfast. Very good and polite service and the ambiance is great. Also like to have an afternoon beer with bruschetta from time to time. Desert especially the crepes are delicious. Recommend to anyone in the vicinity to drop in and meet Mario.

In my experience the food was delicious. I had a panini and a milkshake but my friends ordered waffles with ice cream and it was perfect too. I can't wait to go there again.

Usually I'll have my chicken sandwich when I come here. It's always fresh and to top it off a waffle with ice cream.its so delicious. Prices are fair.

The service can be better but when you go for ice cream and coffee I don't mind waiting if the ice cream is so good it melts in your mouth!!! I come here every year when im in town. Grazie

We stopped here on a Saturday night for dessert after attending a show with another couple. It was busy (around 10pm) so we figured it must be delicious ice cream and desserts. We entered and walked up to the counter where the ice cream was and instead of being greeted, a man behind the counter just said 'are you eating... More

I have been going here for years and the service is still horrible. The coffees aren't that great, the desserts are ok, the crepes are decent. I go for the strawberry crepes. Delicious! The ice cream served with it is pretty nasty though. Other than that, it has a really nice patio and it's a great hangout. Just don't expect... More

Went here with my friends many years ago but didn't really make an impression othern than the breezy patio. Since we were in the area, decided to treat my kids to gelato and coffee for myself. Knowing its Italian, I expected a good, robust cup of coffee to go with the gelato we ordered. However, upon asking what type of... More

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.
