Yelp Toronto's Roman Holiday @ Osteria dei Ganzi
Ganzi itself is sure to be Toronto's next big restaurant. Jenny N nails it: "The building's architecture was incredible and we really enjoyed
checking out the ceilings, wood carvings, lamps and stained glass. The
staff were all wonderful: Super friendly and informative about all the
passed food. In fact, I don't think I've been served by a nicer bunch of
people." And their wrap-around patio on Jarvis St, well, that speaks for itself.
The authentic Italian eats (prepared by a singing chef, who later went on to serenade the crowd) poured out of the kitchen, with something for everyone, all night long. Kate H would sacrafice herself for the "to-die-for truffle tapenade" and Ankita D favoured the dessert donuts. Her exact quote? "Orgasm." We'll have what she's having.
Drinks flowed like the Trevvi Fountain, just ask Johnson C: "Sharply dressed Elites were merrymaking with plenty of free-flowing booze in the form of Campari and Aperol cocktails and Italian (King's Blonde and Amber) beer. The staff was very friendly and efficient."
Did I mention I was serenaded by the chef?
Until next time, enjoy la dolce vita,
