proof | Jun 1, 2008 10:19 AM

Went to Urbano yesterday (942 Queen West)- Italian-Style Tapas Parlour. We enjoyed our visit thoroughly. We went for a snack- figured we would try a few things. They decor is very nice and relaxing....we sat at the nice patio in back, which would look great at night when it is lit. Nice cozy atmosphere good for nice long conversations. Service was good and friendly.

We were served bread with a nice bean spread upon arrival. Menu is not too long...but definitely enough dishes to choose from. Plates are smaller, but because you want to try more than one thing, that was most welcome. We tried the carbonara- excellent. We had had a really bad carbonara at Volo a few weeks back and this was the complete opposite. Sympatico. They don't use cream like most......and that was the correct choice. Not try, and pasta was tender. YUM!!!!!! We tried the sausage an polenta.....never had good polenta....this had a creamy taste that was just scrumputuous. It was well matched with the sausage and rapini. We also tried the patates, orange sorbetto and tiramisu. All very good. I will definitely be going back to try other dishes...if not fro another plate of heavenly carbonara!!!
