After much research our foursome agreed we wanted: 1) Italian 2) A place we'd never been before Marinella was the pick and it was beyond all of our expectations. When we arrived (a Saturday night at 6 p.m.) there were only a few seats taken...More

This was our second dinner at Marinella, and it was even better than the first. Lovely, efficient staff, and a warm, friendly hum about the place. The four of us shared an antipasto plate to start, with cured meats and cheeses made on site, and...More

We did not have a reservation and were lucky enough to get a table for 4 due to a cancellation seconds before we arrived. The service was excellent, very personable and helpful. The food was excellent. Will have to go back asap !

Met friend for dinner here, service was fantastic, they served us an Air Transat appetizer and I had the lobster risotto. It was delicious. The reisling was good. Great atmosphere. Would go again. Risotto is made fresh so will take a while.

The restaurant itself is lovely and very clean. When we arrived we were asked if we had reservations and when we said no, we were still seated immediately. Since we weren't very hungry, we ordered two appetizers to share and each a "side order" of...More

This should be a great restaurant according to the hype. Mostly home made Italian dishes with some pasta imported form Italy. Osso Buca looks great but did not try it. The pasta that we tried just OK--a bit glutenous. The server did not know her...More

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
