Occasionally, the world cuts out carbs in an attempt to encourage losing weight or cleaning up a diet. However, when thinking from the heart and the tastebuds, most of us cannot resist carbs in the form of Italian food. Far removed from Chef Boyardee, the best Italian food is a slow process of love, from hand chopped tomatoes to carefully kneaded dough. As a result, it can comfort as much as satisfy.
Toronto is filled to the brim with Italian restaurants. Some of these restaurants are authentic, while others have come a far way from Italy. Our choices are as delicious as if you made the plane ride over to Rome. We won't discourage the trip, but in the meantime you deserve the mouth-watering gnocchi at Enoteca Sociale or the fall-off-the-bone meat mains at Tutti Matti.
Many of us cook Italian food at home on those nights when we are too tired to cook. A jar of sauce, some dried pasta and the belly is filled. However, it is a soul changing experience when fresh pasta marries with all-day simmering sauce. Going to one of these restaurants is to partake in a passionate relationship with your food. Linger and savour every bite at any one of our 10 Best choices.
