Restaurants specializing in Roman cuisine?

  • n

I was in Rome this past summer, and I fell in love with the traditional Roman cuisine that I found. Are there any places in Toronto that specialize in any of these typical dishes?

Carciofi alla Giudia (Jewish-style artichokes)

  1. Saltimbocca:
    Bellini's, Graffiti's Italian Eatery, Lure, Mammina's, & Mastro Roberto Trattoria (Woodbridge) are all supposed to have it. I'd call ahead and make sure it's on their current menus. Don't ask me to rate these places. I've only eaten at Mammina's which is fair, but not stellar. I just enjoyed the challenge of your question.

    I had no luck with the other two items. Only recipes from Epicurious came up.

      not in Toronto.

      I eat these at least once a trip to NYC at Trattoria Del Arte (near Carnegie Hall).

      If you find these these in Toronto, pllllease shout out!

      1. Give 'Solo Maria Ristorante' in Richmond Hill a try. The chef Maria D'Orazio lived, trained and cooked in Rome. Give her a call at (905)780-6692 and see whether she can prepare something special for you. She's a very nice lady. By the way address is 10610 Bayview Avenue.
