Dinner at Piano Piano, Toronto’s Delicious Italian Experience

Rated #3/top 20, Toronto Life Magazine

  • If there is a common thread that runs through Piano Piano, it’s a deep-seated soulfulness and sensuality that is at once warm, welcoming and just plain fun.
  • The Italian restaurant you always wished was just around the corner is delighted to meet you.
  • Enjoy a family style dinner for two with a bottle of Prosecco
  • Recommend booking 3 weeks in advance to get your date
  • Neighbourhood: University
  • Contact: 88 Harbord St., 416-929-7788, pianopianotherestaurant.com, @pianopianotherestaurant
  • Previously: Splendido
  • Owner and executive chef: Victor Barry
  • Chef: Allison Grundman (Splendido)

The Canadian-Italian dinner menu features old-school favourites (rigatoni, veal parm, wood-fired pizza) all made from scratch. There are also gluten- and dairy-free menus, and a kids’ menu that was devised by a nutritionist. “I have kids,” says Barry, “and I don’t want them eating just chicken fingers and fries.” The name of the restaurant is short for “piano piano va lontano” (Italian for “slowly, slowly one goes further”), and Barry says the concept is the end result of his decision to close Splendido’s: the new menu is less fussy, and he won’t always be cooking in the kitchen. “I’m slowing down a little bit to make things easier on myself and my family.”
