Good eats in Scarborough?

There is this amazing little italian spot called FRATELLI village pizzeria. It is located on 384 Old Kingston Road. It has a variety of pizzas and the pastas are amazing and the portions are a good size. It is totally worth going. The prices are great and its a very comfortable place to dine. Let me know if you checked it out.
I live around the corner from Fratelli and I'd never checked it out until Last Wednesday. I got there just after they opened at 5 and there were already 3 or 4 tables with people eating. I commented to my girlfriend that they seemed to have quite a few cooks and wait staff for such a small place. We started with their fried calamari which is served with an aioli, and moved onto a couple of their pizzas (leaving with leftovers for a midnight snack). Dessert for the girlfriend was a creme brulee and I had a Triamisu, both were excellent although I found the brulee to be a bit expensive at almost $7. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, the service, and the atmosphere of the place. By six o'clock the place was lined up, explaining all the cooks and the wait staff. It's not the biggest place, but it was full on a Wednesday night (not that it has a lot of quality competition in the area). I was so impressed I am heading back this week. I liked the presentation of a Tilapia dish with mussels and shrimp I saw, so I will give it a shot. As we were leaving, the host (possible owner?) thanked us for coming shook my hand, it's attention like this that sets a place apart.
