Description: The Badali Bar and Cucina brings the taste of Italy to the heart of Toronto's Entertainment District. We invite you to join us for fine Italian fare, sustainable seafood, in house made desserts and true Italian hospitality. Whether you join us for a hand crafted cocktail and a sample of our cicchetti menu at our 40 foot bar or for a sit down meal in our piazza grande with colleagues, friends or family, we will welcome you with open arms into our home. Situated just steps from the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, some outstanding downtown hotels and local sports arenas, we strive to exceed your every expectation form your first minute with us to your last. Located in a heritage building we would love nothing more than to host you in the splendour of our surroundings and show off our good fortune. From the exposed brick walls, original hardwood floors and 16' ceilings, to our outstanding wine list, craft beer selection, and hand stretched pizzas, there is much to enjoy in our home. Come spend some time with us in our family owned and operated restaurant and see for yourself the difference a little love can make.

This is a great restaurant for a group. I have never been disappointed here. The selection is great and I love the patio in the summer.
