Nice room and attentive service. Sticky toffee pudding and chocolate terrine were a great way...More

The drinks, service, food and ambiance were all great. We had Arancini and Romanesco Salad to start, which were both very good. We then had Carbonara pasta, which isn't on the menu but they were kind enough to make, and the Tortellini in Brodo, which...More

We had been meaning to try this slightly out-of-the-way Italian restaurant after reading glowing reviews. Turns out the reviews were true. If you like great tastes and textures, knowledgeable staff and an unpretentious vibe. It is worth the drive, streetcar or cab ride to Dundas...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
