Great College Street location and great patio. But that is it for the accolades. When we asked the waiter for a wine list he walked us to a small wine cooler with their white wine selection. There were almost no wines from Italy. Most were...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
