    Desserts Plus at 8611 Weston Rd. It's an Italian eatery. Very good, well priced food. Also Memphis BBQ and Wings at 8074 Islington Ave. The BBQ is pretty good as far as Toronto goes.

      I second Desserts Plus and Memphis BBQ. Marcello's (in a plaza across the parking lot from Vaughan Mills) is also a good place for Italian. Koganei is good for Japanese.

      I had a to die for New Year's Eve meal at YANG's Teppanyaki & Sushi (it is in the plaza in front of Vaughan Mills, next door to the Kappa store)(by all means i am not well versed in japanese food, however, i have been to several japanese places in woodbridge, and believe that this is by far the best)
      I also brought a corporate chef to Saggio at 4040 Steeles and we all had a wonderful meal.

          Saggio is Italian food. There's Basilico at Islington and Rutherford. I went there a few times a few years back and it was quite good. They make a lot of stuff in a wood burning oven. Ice Cream Patio on Rowntree Dairy is quite good as well for pizza and pasta. Thats all that comes to mind so far.

            Romanos is a very good restaurant for Italian food. Their contact/address is:

            830 Rowntree Dairy Rd

              I'll be in the area Wednesday for dinner. Any more tasty without breaking the bank suggestions?

                I like Maestro Roberto's on the NE side of Weston Rd and Hwy 7 (just off of Weston Rd) Good rissotto.
                The others are also all Italian based- Romano's is good, if you want cheap and cheriful I think Ice Cream Patio is good.
                Someone told me Match on Weston Rd near Whitmore is excellent food and very beautiful presentation.

                I enjoyed a meal at Ice Cream Patio a few years ago but I haven't been since. Has anyone tried recently?

                  I went recently and tried their penne alla vodka pasta, and their margarita pizza....SO GOOD! The pasta was al dente. The sauce was creamy and had great flavour. Good amount of bacon bits in it too. Very satisfying...mmm just thinking about it is making me drool!

                  Their wood oven pizza had a nice thin crust with right amount of charring. They served it with fresh basil to sprinkle on. Tasty!

                  They also served some, I think Caponata? with their bread. It was a mixture of spicy oil, hot peppers, maybe artichokes and some other bits. Nice tasty change from the usual olive oil & balsamic, if you're lucky, served at other Italian places.

                  For dessert, we had the Bacio Tartufo Affrogato...LOVED IT! Bacio Tartufo was GOOD. Expresso was GOOD. Put it together and WOW!

                  I really liked their atmosphere/decor as well. Service was great too.

                  Would go back again for sure - I think this one time made this restaurant as one of my favourite places!

                      Just want to confirm that your review is of Maestro Roberto? What are the prices like?
