Absolutely perfect. Service was fantastic- nice to be able to ask an annoying amount of questions and get a knowledgeable, friendly, and hospitable response every time. Zero complaints about food, great for sharing around the table (sweetbreads and octopus...soooo good). Definitely going back!

So we asked another bar tender about where to go for drinks and dinner and she told us about Bar Isabel. All I can say is “wow”. The shrimp were delicious— buttery and yummy. I loved the shishito peppers and the mixed plate were so...More

The food here is first class. Portions are good and textures and flavors work beautifully. Unfortunately the restaurant is quite dark and it's very noisy; tables are close and it seems crowded.

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
