HIDDEN GEMS OF TORONTO, STAFF PICK EDITION: LA FENICE RISTORANTE

319 King St W, Toronto

Its no secret that our team loves La Fenice. We now have the pleasure of working with them, but our team has been dining there for years.

This classic Italian restaurant built in the roots of Italian tradition has been making in-house family recipes since 1984. Located in the heart of the Entertainment District, this is our chosen spot to dine at for any special occasions.

Luigi Orgera and his wife Sandra moved to Canada from a small town near Rome. They made a name for themselves in the Toronto dining scene, and now, 35 years later, their daughter and her husband, Executive Chef Rocco have continued the family legacy. Sandra, in her upper 80’s still bakes fresh desserts for the restaurant – there’s no better dessert than Nonna’s dessert!

We’ve picked a few of our favourite fresh dishes to share:


Mozzarella di Bufala

Imported Italian Buffalo Milk Mozzarella, Tomato, Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Branzino

Mediterranean Sea Bass, Grilled Whole, Served Deboned, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Fresh Lemon


Linguini Fradiavola

Shrimps, Spicy Tomato Sauce, Chili Flakes


Tiramasu

Classic Italian Trifle, Italian Biscuits Dipped in Espresso, Layered with Mascarpone Cream & Chocolate, Flavoured with Brandy – NONNA’S SPECIALTY
