Proper Italian-homemade pasta type resto in Toronto

does this exist? I don't think I have been to any Italian resto that serves homemade pasta. Some highend places have homemade cannelloni and such on their menus, but that's not what i'm talking about. A place like Franks in New York

Chow to the rescue?

  1. Terroni's seems like a good place to start. They make their own pasta.

    1. Terroni, I'm Italian and this is the closest I have found to homemade pasta and sauce.

      1. best Italian pasta is at Romagna Mia

          agreed...romagna mia has a load of different homemade pastas, including squid ink (for those who like it) capelletti, strozzapreti, maltagliati, etc....

        2. I think I read somewhere they make fresh pasta onsite every day at Imperia.

          17 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M4W1L1, CA

            I have not been to Terroni recently, but to my knowledge they do not use homemade pasta, with the exception of lasagna, etc.
            I have yet to find a trattoria type restaurant in Toronto that uses homemade pasta.
            I have never been to Imperia, but will definitely try it.

              Tell that to the guys making pasta in the basement of the new Terroni on Adelaide.

              I second Zucca. We went there this past weekend and enjoyed everything. Each of us had an appetizer, entree, and dessert, as well as wine. The creme brulee was the best my partner has had to-date at any restaurant, and the soup du jour was superb. The atmosphere was exactly what I was hoping for. I will definitely return.
