I was in Toronto visiting my daugh who lives in Little Italy. She suggested Taverniti. The food was great, the atmosphere was great and the service was excellent. As it was later, we shared a bottle of wine and antipasto. All good!!! Would recommend.

With friendly servers, good wine, and superb pizza, Trattoria Taverniti may well end up becoming my favourite Italian restaurant in Toronto.

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
