Excellent home-style Italian food with reasonably priced wine menu. Perfect for all occasions - birthday celebrations to just a quiet dinner with loved one(s). Easy access by public transport (506 streetcar) or cabs.

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

lounges and bars are always teeming with noise and
