Where To Eat Tonight

Last weekend, we were looking for a new restaurant to go to in the neighbourhood. We live in South Granville, which is a great place for restaurants, art, and shopping. However, the restaurants here are pretty expensive, which is why we wanted to find a new, cool place that didn’t totally break the bank! We went to Open Table and did a general search, stumbling upon Portobello. It had everything we needed: cozy table, great reviews, an available reservation, and it was just around the corner! Not to mention it is Italian. Bingo!

This is what we tried:

tried and true: one of our favourite reds that goes with lots of different foods
warm, fresh, whole wheat bread on the table

deliciously light caesar salad (my favourite kind)
another amazing caprese with fresh tomatoes and mozzarella

gnocchi cardinale: amazing sauce, fluffy potato gnocchi

meringues – thank you!

The food was delicious. We will definitely be back.

What I love most about this place is how it is run. The service was fantastic, friendly, and helpful. Not to mention, the hostess and chef are the owners of the restaurant! Chef Joe ‘Pino’ Milano uses southern Italian (my favourite) inspirations for the diverse menu.

This is a great place to go on a date, for a family dinner, and even to catch up with friends.

Let me know what you think!

Happy Friday! Have a romantic weekend.
