Went with friends for a leisurely dinner. Great pub atmosphere. Good beer selection from crafts to large co. We had the tortilla chips to start - served warm and delicious. We had the signature burger, fish & chips and fish tacos. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Will return. Our server was amazing - helpful and efficient.

A pub in the Little Italy neighbourhood, I was happily surprised with the vegetarian options. Tried their veggie crunch burger made with cumin and rice, the vegetarian nachos and their fish taco special. The tacos and burger were amazing! Nachos were good but the chips were a bit over cooked/oily. Great place, would go back.

Owner Darryl was amazing and very visible - sets the stage for the commitment to service and dining experience. The pulled pork nacho's are bar none the BEST I have ever had - a must try!! The Oysters were fabulous and to cap it off - the Nutella Poppers satisfied my sweet tooth - just enough and the perfect way... More

Great burgers and the pulled pork nachos were to die for! Music was great too. Highly recommend. Interesting part of town too. Lots of night life. Different from downtown

The food is good although I did not like the place. The service was fairly quick. The atmosphere is friendly and the waiters are very kind. Looking at the reviews I had expected a higher quality of food but maybe to be able better appreciate this cuisine I have to return to a less busy evening. to review.

Liked the decor, and ambiance Waiter very knowledgeable about pysters Oysters served perfectly according to my colleague : on ice in a metal plate, with a lot of lemon quarters. The duck confit was extraordinary, melting in your mouth, excellent My colleague got a fish taco, great also! And desert was special: a fried Mars Bar. Delicious, not too sweet!

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.
