Famous for reasons other than its food, this place still manages to deliver a decent meal without breaking the bank. For those wanting to watch soccer, there is usually a game on of some kind, and the food is good.

Had the delicious Bone Shaker IPA beer and Diplomatico antipasto with calamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted artichoke hearts and provolone cheese. Cheerful service, good food and outdoor dining experience that you must try!

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
