I've been coming to this neighbourhood for years. Not sure why I never tried Capitol in the heart of little Italy but boy, did I miss out. The food is homemade, delish, and reasonable plus a great spot to people watch. Love it!

Fabulous dinner at The Capitol on Clinton St & College St. The cuisine is outstanding!! Mussels are the best & the pasta dish with chicken& sausage in house tomato sauce is awesome! A lovely dinner with Stephen Eisenbaum.

I would give Capitol 2 1/2 stars rather than 3 if it were an option. I bought a Groupon dinner for two multi-course deal for $49, and even with the hefty discount, it was of questionable value. Some people object to the owners. I actually...More

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
