Wandering through the city after a TIFF screening we found this gem! We started with a nice bottle of red, delicious warm bread and some Caesar salads. He ordered the Penne Arrabbiate, which they tell you is spicy because it actually is. He enjoyed it...More

If you are looking for a quiet traditional Italian restaurant where you are treated well, this is a good place to go. The meal was very tasty but there is a limited selection on the menu. Good wine list.

Authentic and delicious Italian, fresh tasting seafood and great service. Prices are reasonable and it's steps away from the theatre.

This was a quiet restaurant with an attentive wait staff. There was good variety on the menu and several specials. The tomato salad was excellent as well as the warm bread and real butter. There was a nice wine selection and the prices were reasonable.

Was looking forward to an authentic Italian dinner. Caesar salad was poor then followed by a poor cut of steak with what appeared to be mushrooms from a can! Very poor quality. Would not recommend for the money.

Was hoping for more authentic and home made Italian - bread was French loaf and not really fresh. Pasta accompanying the mains was not fresh; appearance and taste similar to boxed version (had veal piccata and veal masala accompanied by pasta). Both mains missed the...More

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
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
