Had a fantastic cheeseburger a few weeks ago. Had a craving that was fulfilled. Just walked by and took a chance. Went back again. Polite down to earth staff. Cozy and friendly place.

We ate three lunches here in the back covered in patio area. Two of three lunches were fantastic (steak panini special, crab cakes). One was mediocre. Service was friendly. Lowered music when asked all three times without question. Casual atmosphere. Good value.

We sat up the patio in the back of the restaurant. It was a nice place for lunch. We ordered… Jalapeno Tomato Soup…$5.00 Chicken Quesadilla…13.00 Steak Sandwich…$10.00 Total with tax 31.84 All food items came quickly and were served hot. I would have enjoyed some bread with the soup but it was very good all the same. The steak sandwich... More

Great for both take out and dine in, Utopia is consistently good, vegan friendly, and takes far too much of our household's money. Can't go wrong with the burritos.

While located in Little Italy, Utopia isn’t Italian. Rather dinner fare is salads, burgers, sandwiches, burritos etc. Restaurant is small, but there is an outdoor section in back that is probably more comfortable and quieter when the weather cooperates. Good selection of beers, and our sandwiches were more than enough for an evening meal. Only complaint was the service. Unfortunately... More

Utopia has excellent burritos of every description. The portions are large and the food is freshly prepared. The staff are efficient and pleasant. Usually like sitting in the back covered patio area. The decor isn't stellar but the food makes up for that.

Utopia is just around the corner and it is a great go to spot for us. Both burgers and sandwiches are tasty. I recommend the crispy chicken sandwich. My only disappointing order here was the steak sammy . Lots of different mayos to choose from (jalapeno and chipotle!) to spice up your meal. Above average fries served with each order... More

Monster portion sizes but still a quality product, for 8$ we had a good sweet potato soup, vegan kat sandwich was amazing!!! So full of flavour. Clasdic ruben was ok, just not enough cheese. We recommend! Good choice of local beers and good service.

Visited Utopia in early May to celebrate a birthday. The parking is a bit of hassle but not a biggie. The restaurant was packed, but they took about 5-10 minutes to set up a table for 5. The restaurant is not set up for groups larger than 4. The sitting was a bit uncomfortable. Once in the we were attended... 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.
