You will found great Italian home cooking dishes at this restaurant and portions are generous. It’s best, like how Italian family and friends would do at a gathering - to share so you get to taste more dishes!

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
