I had to post about a great restaurant that my hubby and I visit every chance we get. It's called Alexandra's and it has fantastic Italian food, e.g. (the fried Calamari is to die for) and the Veal Marsala is fantastic, the Gnocchi is out of this world, the Wood Fire Pizza is the best in Toronto, and the MUSIC (two wonderful gentlemen playing and singing all the oldies/goodies/etc.etc.) are the highlight of the night.
BUT,they do not have ONIONS if you want a Gibson martini!!! I told them I was going to bring my own!!! The owner (Alexandra - 8 yrs old) and her daddy and partner are the best. Forever sending out free desserts to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, etc. etc.
GO TO ALEXANDRA'S - It's on Eglinton, just west of Renforth. If you're coming from the East end, take the Carlingvie exit to Renforth, go down Renforth to Eglinton, and go in the entrance to Planet Bowl. Alexandra's is in that strip mall at the end of the Mall.
If you're coming from the West, take the Renforth Exit, and go S on Renforth 1/2 block to Eglington and then to the entrance of Planet Bowl. You won't be sorry you visited this restaurant and the prices are VERY reasonable.
