The restaurant is now located on the upper floor of the building! The service has always been excellent as has the food. Caesar salad was fresh and crispy, and Eggplant Parmesan tasty. Have never had a bad meal at this place!

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,
