Named the Top Italian Restaurant in the World by 50 Top Italy, this upscale eatery located in Toronto’s Casa Loma is a must-try. Helmed by chef Alfonso Iaccarino, hailing from Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi in Italy, who has been honoured with a 3-star Michelin designation. The multi-course signature tasting menu has also been awarded the Mulino Caputa Aware for Meal of the Year 2022. The commitment to quality ingredients is unparalleled; with house-grown herbs and produce down to the olives used in the house-made olive oil. If those impressive accolades aren’t enough to convince you, maybe the artful dishes from wild rose scented tagliatelle with sturgeon caviar to a seared Quebec duck breast just might. Wine lovers take note because the restaurant’s wine cellar is also home to some of the world’s most prestigious wines.
There is tons of great food in Toronto, but the love affair the city has with Italian cuisine might just top it all. Pasta and pizza lovers (so basically, most people) will have an absolute ball here, with a huge array of fantastic eateries celebrating all there is to love about Italian cooking, running all the way from The Beaches to High Park.
Fancy a doughy, buttery margherita, or a saucy carbonara? Or try out little sugar-dusted bombalino’s, dipped in Nutella for dessert. These restaurants serve up everything from paninis to pizza, all day long, from Michelin-starred fare to hole-in-the-wall secrets. These are the top Italian restaurants in Toronto to have on your radar in 2023. Enjoy.
