You know you've done something right when an entire city has given you an affectionate nickname. At some point after Cafe Diplomatico opened its doors in 1968, Torontonians started referring to the traditional Italian eatery as "The Dip.” Soon it became a go-to spot for custom pizzas, pasta dishes, and paninos after nights out on the town or in the morning for bacon-and-egg breakfast sandwiches.
That tradition continues on today in Cafe Diplomatico's kitchen, its casual dining room, and out on its large patio. There, half-litres of wine and pitchers of beer imported from Amsterdam help groups pass the time together. Each option makes its own statement alongside grilled rainbow trout and more than a dozen types of pasta, which chefs cover in alfredo sauce, bolognese, or pesto.
