A good surprise after trying to get somewhere else. Cozy and full of Italian mood. Delicious pasta, nice portions. Only comment will be to have fresh parmesan and fresh bread to go with it. All in all, bravo!

Wow, this was really great Crostini and Parmigiana Melanzane as a starter. Just delicious! Also the Pizza Rucola was perfect. This is a place to enjoy really great Italian food in Little Italy. Be careful: They won't accept reservations for the patio!

My favourite place on College Street in the heart of Little Italy! Great ambiance, staff very friendly and knowledgeable. The menu is amazing and the drinks are always made perfectly. It's always my go to place especially when I have visitors from out of town.

Walking along College, enjoying the festivities of "The Taste of Italy" way back in June, we saw the long lineup; thinking that was a good sign and liking the looks of their patio we stood in place, patiently waiting our turn. Once seated we couldn't...More

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

activity, and both outdoor and indoor marketplaces are
