Dipamo's closed, tried Ferraro instead

Last Saturday night, my wife and I were craving BBQ so we made our way down Eglington to try Dipamo's. As discussed on the board already, they have been closed by their landlord for non-payment of rent.

We were very disappointed as we walked back down the street. My wife stopped and looked into a very busy Italian restaurant named Ferraro. As we continued on our way, the host actually ran onto the street to tell us that they had a table for 2 for us. I thought that this was promising, someone who cares enough about their business to do such a thing. We were impressed with the rest of our experience too.

We were immediately seated and brought foccacia bread with oil and balsamic. Shared a $12 antipasto plate that was huge and full of fresh nibbles such as bocconcini cheese, proscuitto, caramelized onions, Sicilian olives, roasted peppers and so on. My wife ordered a $12 pasta special of papardelle with roasted portabellas, cream and 3 cheeses. I had a $17 veal parmigiana that was so large it just fit on a 12" platter, my excellent side of spaghetti marinara had to be served in a separate bowl. Both meals were delicious and very generous portions.

I highly recommend this traditional, neighborhood joint.
