Truly it does not get better than this. I'm a foodie and I worked in fine dining in the 80's and early 90's with top chefs in Toronto. Bonacini and McEwen are not even close to what Chef Frank does. There is so much attention to detail and quality sourced products that the nuances in the food are true culinary... More

What a find on College St. Excellent all the way around. Small and exquisite. Monthly feature menus served superbly. The chef puts out riffs on French bistro/old school fare (oysters Rockefeller) that are both inventive and delicious...often served on his own thrown pottery. Celebrated a birthday with lobster in cream broth, steak with Parmesan frites, duck confit with foie gras... More

Always the best from start to finish. The striploin in Toronto, warmest service probably in North America.

Make a reservation as this place is quite busy. Service was extremely friendly. I started with the oyster Rockefeller, that was very good. Then I had confit duck leg and duck breast. The duck confit was moist, not quite as good as in Paris, but still as good as you can get in Toronto. Finished off with sponge cake over... More

This was our second time here and it was so good I chose it to celebrate our anniversary. First off, we came here last time on a Wednesday and this was a Saturday so I figured there would be a few glitches because the place was packed but no, none. The service was as intimate as if we booked the... More

We were greeted at the door and taken to our table and rest of the evening and dinner came together like a song. Everything on the menu is outstanding, the four of us all had something different. The lamb, ravioli, salmon special and I had the sirloin steak which was simply mouth watering perfection. Enough with the food as I... More

Frank's never disappoints. We make it a must when in Toronto. We always enjoy the creativie dishes and the ambiance of this intimate restaurant.. An imaginative chef, excellent wait staff , and a warm atmosphere all contribute to our enjoyment of dinner at Frank's.

This excellent restaurant is not widely known or advertised, which is good because it is quite small. The food is interesting and usually excellent. If not excellent, it is graciously replaced with something which is. The chef prepares "from scratch, in house" and it shows. Oysters Rockefeller are my favourite and I order them every time I am there. It... More

Staying in Little Italy

Neighbourhood 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.
