Contributed by Sarah Cook – Publisher –Welcome to the neighbourhood “Vicino” – pronounced (Vee chee no) simply means a neighbour or something that is nearby. The revitalization of Regent Park is about 70% complete, and now, voila, we finally have a fantastic new eatery on Sumach just south of Dundas.

Having opened their doors in August 2019 with rave reviews, patrons were able to enjoy the east facing patio in the warmer months. Now that winter is here, we go inside to the cozy dining room for the wonderfully inviting homemade Italian comfort foods that await, a glass of noteworthy wine or maybe a nice warm macchiato.

Their menu focuses on traditional Southern Italian dishes, using only the best ingredients available, sourcing local as much as possible. Everything is made in house; from their low gluten pizza dough, that is not only organic but is also high in protein; pizza that’s good for you~ yes please! … to their remarkable gelato that will keep you coming back for more. located in the southern heart of Regent Park at 148 Sumach St. across from the newly revitalized Regent Park Athletic Grounds at St. David’s and Sumach, occupying the main floor of ‘The Sumach’ by Chartwell assisted Living Building.

Executive Chef Bryce Head is thrilled to be a part of this wonderful, flourishing community. Not only his fantastic position at Vicino, he also lives in the neighbourhood. How great is this- to be able to work and live in the same area. In fact, many of the staff reside close by and love that Vicino is thriving in their very own community.

One final note and a truly terrific feature of Vicino – they don’t close between lunch and dinner. So, if you, like me, prefer lunch at 3pm and dinner at 8, this is the place to be!
