Enjoyed our dining experience with one big exception. Argula Prosciutto Salad very good, split four ways. Veal marsala outstanding. Fettuccini OK. Gnocchi flunked; mushy, unappetizing, uninspired.BAD. Creme Brule great. Service, pleasant, cordial. Our initial wine pour replaced with a better replacement.

One of the best moderately priced Italian restaurants downtown. Food is always fresh, well prepared and tastes great. Never a complaint with service or quality. Always enjoy eating here.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
