Went on a sunny, 80 degree Saturday for dinner. I don't think the restaurant has air conditioning which doesn't seem to be uncommon for Canada. However, it was so hot in there that it was almost unappetizing. My food and wine were really good, but...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
lounges and bars are always teeming with noise and
activity, and both outdoor and indoor marketplaces are
