Comino’s concocts hand-tossed pizzas that can be accessorized with pre-designed topping trios or customized combinations. The meat lover's pie carefully replicates Lascaux cave drawings of pepperoni, bacon, and ground beef, and the veggie lover's model sounds a sturdy retort in the form of green peppers, onions, and tomatoes. Though pizza as transportation is a poor second to the magic carpet, world travel is feasible through Comino’s Hawaiian and Greek creations, and, for the return trip, a toothsome passport stamp of pepperoni, bacon, and mushrooms returns slice-sailors to Canada.

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'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.

As servers wend past the dimly lit exposed-brick walls of Roses New York Restaurant’s dining room, chefs’ fingers fly in the kitchen as they fuse contemporary casual cuisine with authentic Mediterranean and Persian flavours. Champions of dazzling palates with unprocessed ingredients, chefs assemble each nosh from fresh items such as eggplant, herbs, and oven-roasted beef salami. While the menu’s heart lies in traditional Mediterranean and Persian comestibles such as vegetarian ashe-reshte and the sausage-stuffed bandari sandwich, plates often arrive at tables heavy with Western standards such as burgers, pizzas, and stagecoaches between two slices of bread. An extension of the chefs’ marriage of old and new, the dining room features timeless touches such as rustic dark-wood floors juxtaposed against a modern decor of plush red booths and screened-in fireplaces that do impressions of famous infernos upon command.

Although Amaro Pizza's menu boasts an extensive array of traditional finger foods, a selection of familiar and gourmet-inspired pizzas continues to dominate its pages. The cooks can toss together one of their classica pies, such as the margherita classica or the potato alla cream with rosemary and parmesan, or diners can design their own using the 64 available toppings—including smoked salmon, prosciutto, and grilled eggplant—and 19 different polyhedrons of house-made dough. To accompany meals, the kitchen also fries up spicy and savoury orders of wings and layers garlic focaccia bread with extra-virgin olive oil and fresh herbs.
