MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
As its name would suggest, this bijou on Bay Street is centered around wines, with many offered by the glass. Inside, find an unexpected décor that looks and feels like an osteria out of Italy. The menu is designed for sharing, making the salumi and cheese platters a prevalent choice. "The Meatball Bar" is another treat, with unlikely twists on tired offerings-think truffled veal or lamb. Chef Massimo Felici's passion for baking and pastries is clear in the house-made breads, and carries through to desserts that are worth getting excited over. Find sweethearts diving into the Napoleon, layering puff pastry with vanilla Chantilly custard and blueberries. Nightly specials augment the bill of fare, though every item is made with equal care and authenticity.
