My son and I are on a quest for the best CHOWHOUND Italian restaurant in Toronto...
We've mortgaged our home on Italian restos lately, where "new money" kids are pumping out chic versions of their 30-something Mother's "Old World" recipies - Can you say "Chef Boyardee"?
Is there a place in Toronto where Mom cooks real Italian and Pop takes care of the guests?
Is there a place where 20-30 seats turn over only once a night, you don't have to yell at your waiter just to be heard, and honest food take precedence over fountains in the lobby and white linen table cloths?
Finally, is there an Italian restaurant in Toronto where we can enjoy the simple pleasures of great cooking at a fair price?
