We visited Little Italy on a humid and lively Saturday night in August and felt there was enough “Italy” to justify the name - in terms of restaurants, coffee bars and gelato stores. We had a tasty, authentic Italy dinner at La Forchetta (pasta, Montepulciano...More

I love the European atmosphere, architecture so little Italy in Toronto is a must-visit destination for me. We went there in the afternoon and to be honest, there were not too many shops opened and there was not much to see. Frankly speaking, I am...More

We love anything dealing with Italy, so the chance to go to Little Italy while we were in Toronto was a huge plus. We walked here along College Street from the subway so we passed through Kensington Market to get here. We did go off...More

We had a stroll in this place but we're dissapointed because there are not so many Italian shops and the place itself is not as in Italy. Maybe for someone who is not travelling could be impressive, but for those who know Italy for sure...More

Great place to take a walk along this bustling street now filled with restaurants, bars, cafes, and a few stores in between. This street has been transformed from many merchants during the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's to what was called in a NY magazine...More

We had heard about this restaurant/bar Pinky's which is rather hard to find especially since they do not have any signage. It looks like a renovated home with a large bar area, small outdoor seating and a few crowded tables on the enclosed front porch....More

Very nice area and worth visiting for ! Nice meal or coffee or desert. A walk will reveal a number or restaurants and coffee places with a great 'Italian' touch.

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
