Seven of us visited this unassuming restaurant for lunch, and was pleasantly surprised. The décor was nothing to write home about. The name exudes quiet confidence about its cuisine. The linguine was plain but was done just right. Good service. Overall, it is a good...More

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
