Decent venue upstairs The food is mediocre, the nachos are the bomb but everything else is kind of bland. Gets pretty packed on the weekends, good place to hangout but nothing I would go out of my way for. Usually in the area though so often the go to spot for live music.

Fun and vibrant. Huge, killer Nachos. This is a university hangout. Other tex-mex food is good too. Very casual. There is a rock club upstairs. Door staff at night kind of sucks and was rude.

Went to this place with a friend on a nice Friday night and my friend was assaulted after we tried getting back into the place after going outside for a smoke. The guards there are unreasonable .. we just wanted to get back in and my friend was punched in the mouth twice and had his phone smashed to destroy... More

We went just afternoon on a Thursday with a party of 4. There were tables available and as well ate it filled up to near capacity. It was dark and had a definite pub feel to it, but that did not detract from the experience. We had both lunch and breakfast in the group. Everything was tasty and the serving... More

I was visiting my friend in Toronto and she went on about this place all the time and I can see why. There was a queue to get in and when that happens, I just think you're going to get stuck at a rubbish table beside the toilets because you won't have an option but that didn't happen! Looks like...

As a big lover of Mexican food I'm always full of high expectations - Sneaky Dee's definitely fulfills this expectation! Nacho platters are insanely huge! Don't get one for yourself - unless your brave enough to take on a mammoth challenge! I recommend the Enchiladas and burrito plate again huge portions! Wholesome and hearty! Definitely a great place for a... More

My son wanted me to try the famous King Nachos while I was visiting him and I was determined to finish them off on my own, but alas, they would have fed 4 people and I failed. They tasted great with lots of beef and cheese. We went mid afternoon and the service and food was excellent and my vegan... More

You can't go wrong with nachos & beer! I came here with friends and we got their king nachos and pitcher of beer deal which was great value. The services was good and we ended up staying for many more pitchers. They had a good vegetarian selection for one of my friends as well. Would definitely come back.

The first time I experienced Sneaky Dees was on a thirsty evening in 1990. Through the years I have experienced the joy of food, and atmosphere. Late night Fajitas, and early morning breakfasts have saved my butt. Toilet score 4-10. If you are tall watch your head.

The nachos are HUGE and are also fantastic. They will definitely be enough for two people!! The service was great and the drinks were good. The atmosphere is laid back and that of a music club/bar. Funky walls filled with posters and graffiti. Good music playing, I think they have shows upstairs.

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.
