CIBO ITALIANO – YOU’VE GOT TO TRY THEM ALL!

Contributed by Sarah Cook- Publisher editor writer food critic wife mother textile artist extraordinaire!  With so many great Italian restaurants in and around Cabbagetown these days, the question is – which one is the best? I believe that they all have something very distinctive and unique to offer!

 
F’AMELIA   is top on our list of Italian eateries, as the long-standing tradition in North Cabbagetown. With a fantastico menu and some very enjoyable evenings planned for every night of the week. Eating alone, no problem, belly up to the cozy bar and eat to your hearts content.

 
VICINO  New to South Cabbagetown/ Regent Park this inviting and classic Italian Kitchen has a fabulous ‘organic’ menu that entices even the finnickiest eater. With half price kids’ menu and a ‘no corkage fee’ wine Wednesday special, bring your kids and bring your wine. Head Chef Bryce McCracken will be happy to whip up your most desired Vicino pizza in no time.

 
DOVA They’ve not yet blessed us with opening, but word on the street is “by the end of February” we can all start to enjoy the Sister eatery of ARDO. This publisher is looking forward to seeing the interiors complete redo and enjoying some vino in the secret garden this spring/ summer

 
SALT & TOBACCO Now open for lunch as well! Just need a quick slice, or 3? The daily special is always perfecto! Big client meeting, or need 14 pizzas for a party- they’ll be your go-to for delicious, homemade, authentic thin crust “cibo delizioso”! Oh, and their kale caesar salad is “strabiliante’!

 
GUSTO The menu at this enticing local looks so delicious! I’ll be dining there next Wednesday and cannot wait to try EVERYTHING! There will be four of us girls and we like to eat ‘family style’ – ordering a plethora of items and just diggin’ in. A great glass of wine, appys, mains and of course I will be ordering the tiramisu (uuuuummm, this one’s mine ladies!) to finish it all off. Really looking forward to this ‘grand reveal’!
