This was my last stop on my way home and I've been hearing about this place for awhile now. Finding it wasn't challenging, but with the location, you've still got to keep an eye out, for it will surprise you. The drink selection is nicely put together and it will definitely be an experience that you will remember and hopefully... More

We had wanted to come here for a while, and after experiencing Jen Agg's Agrikol in Montreal, decided we owed it to ourselves to visit The Black Hoof. The menu is ecclectic, but amazing. The food really was superb. Our favourite dish was most certainly the pork belly and spruce dish. But nothing failed. The drinks were extremely well done,... More

I've come to The black hoof because I've been told about all The amazing entres They have ,And that was true. But unfortunately the waiter was very rude to us. It Seems Like he was forced to attend us. Never gonna come back. But again.. food was good.. Maybe a native canadian would have been better treated.

well several people have mentioned the interesting pairing and innovative ways the food is prepared. From a Horse tartar that is both crunchy (its the bits they added to it not the meat itself) to the mushroom medley that I found to be truly inspired to several other dishes that were memorable. The only disappointment came when my visiting dinner... More

Disappointed to see almost no changes to the menu on our third visit this year. Tried to sample things for the first time, started with hummus and chicken liver which was probably the best thing we had. Moved on to a medley of wild mushrooms that sadly disappointed. Lastly the pork tacos were good but uninspired

Anthony Bourdain hasn't let us down yet! The horse tartare is fantastic but the bone marrow was incredible. Great selection of beer as well. Love this place but be prepared to wait, everyone wants a piece of it.

Came here with a couple of friends a few weeks ago while passing through Toronto, and SO glad we did! The food was impeccable - not over complicated, every ingredient treated with respect. We ordered 6 plates for the 3 of us, which may have been our downfall... The bone marrow was a stand out - I was hard pressed... More

Try it all and have fun with the combination of toppings and sausages. There's a reason why it's an established destination in Rosedale. Price is good too and orders are up fast. Enjoy

Staying in Little Italy

Neighbourhood Profile
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 spot. Cafes spill onto the wide sidewalks, pool lounges and bars are always teeming with noise and activity, and both outdoor and indoor marketplaces are packed with fresh fish, cured meats, and pungent cheeses. All of the activity makes it a perfect spot for people-watching, especially over a nice glass of red wine or a quick and sumptuous slice of pizza at one of the many eateries or trattorias in the area.
