Little Italy, Toronto
I don’t usually eat lunch (brunch isn’t lunch) out; I mean it’s hard enough always eating dinner out; one particular day however, I wasn’t feeling any sort of brunch food, I was feeling gnocchi in a super-rich tomato sauce, wanting that I headed to Bar Italia to check it out.
Unfortunately the kitchen hadn’t finished prepping the gnocchi; disappointing I know but I was there for pasta, so that’s what I ended up getting,
They put together a couple of dishes for us, basically just tell them what you want is the pasta and they’ll make it.
Bar Italia hit the nail on the head for a simple, quaint and delicious pasta meal, made thoroughly enjoyable by the manager at the bar who was a pleasure.
