NileGuide Expert Says:
Bar Italia is a bit of a Little Italy institution. Frequented by locals and college students, it's quite large but still feels like a cozy neighborhood place.

A forerunner in the restaurant resurgence of Little Italy, Bar Italia is heralded as a College Street institution. Seating patrons across two levels, the venue offers fine dining and casual menu options — as well as wine by the glass. A private dining room is available and accommodates 40 (as well as an acoustic musical act!). In summer, the patio is constantly filled with Toronto's young, hipster crowd.
