WHAT TO EXPECT
Discover the deliciousness of Toronto’s Little Italy, renowned for an extensive assortment of amazing and authentic Italian food and drink. Beginning as a popular settlement spot for Italian immigrants in the early 1900s, this mainly residential neighbourhood gradually established small cafes, bakeries, and businesses, including one of Canada’s first multilingual radio stations. From a humble beginning, Little Italy proved purposeful for much more than the exquisite ensemble of restaurants seen today.
Recently, Toronto’s well-known home of traditional Italian cuisine has further diversified to offer a wide selection of cultural cuisines. Immigrants from all over the world have moved into the neighbourhood, bringing with them a plethora of delectable dishes from their home countries.
Today, the scope of Little Italy’s restaurant scene has transformed, but has never forgotten its roots. Join us for a glass of wine, while enjoying the fabulous flavours and amazing aromas of Italy – plus some unexpected menu offerings from other distinctly unique cultures.
