Save your $. If you are familiar with good Italian food this place does not measure up. The atmosphere is nice but the food is really lacking . I don't mind paying a lot for good food but this place is not worth the price...More

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
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

When we visited in August many of the pasta dishes were available as gluten free. We were also told that most dishes can be customized to accommodate for allergies and food sensitivities.
