  • Paese Ristorante
    By combining the rustic simplicity of Italian cooking with the unmistakable flavours of Canadian ingredients, PAESE serves as a bridge between the Old and New World. The restaurant currently boasts two locations in the Toronto area, and they both honour Canadian heritage and Italian tradition by cooking with ingredients harvested from an urban garden. Created by owner Tony Loschiavo and executive chef Christopher Palik, this quarter-acre plot produces everything from tomatoes and chili peppers for the chefs to mint and lavender for the bartenders and any visiting potpourri artists. These ingredients lend a distinctive twist to traditional Italian recipes without straying too far from those roots. In addition to meatballs made from house-ground beef short rib, sirloin, and brisket, the menu features pizzas with inventive topping combinations?buffalo mozzarella, sprouts, and squash for example?and a variety of pasta dishes, such as orecchiette with wild boar sausage and foraged mushrooms. Both restaurants stock cellars with hundreds of wines from across the world, earning a Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence for the King Street location as well as the Bathurst Street location.

  • Marinella
    Marinella's Italian-cuisine experts blend together fresh ingredients, local beef, and daily imported fish to cook up a menu of classic Italian entrees. Tomato sauce drips over homemade sausages and meatballs in small ($17) and large ($22) orders of Pappardelle Giovanni pasta made with fresh eggs and 100% durum semolina flour, and diners wrap their mouths and pocket measuring tapes around the circumference of a thin-crust margherita pizza topped with imported extra-virgin olive oil ($15). In the kitchen, chefs prepare locally sourced, prime-grade new york strip-loin steak aged for 28 days ($32) and blend together fresh scallops, shrimp, king crab, and a lobster into a seafood risotto ($32). Meanwhile, candlelight flickers across brick walls as bartenders pour selections from an extensive wine list, and sunlight spills over a patio where diners can practice plate juggling after finishing off one of the eatery's daily selection of in-house-made desserts. Customers may also substitute organic spelt noodles in pasta dishes.

  • John's Italian Caffe
    Since 2003, John's Italian Caffe has captivated its clientele with its rich and colourful authentic Italian dishes, warm atmosphere, and excellent service. Following a long-successful tradition, the cafe not only serves its signature pesto sauce over fresh pasta, but also on pizzas, sandwiches, and bruschettas. The pesto?s classic green hue is even splashed throughout the eatery, on the outdoor awning and across the patio?s chairs and tables. However, the pesto isn?t the only thing with a long history at John?s Italian Caffe. The eatery?s building dates back 105 years, and still has some markings that honor its history, including a carving of the Ten Commandments on the door frame.
