blakebake Sep 28, 2008 08:14 AM

i'm a student on a budget with a birthday coming up. a friend suggested terroni but i had a look at the menu and it was a bit more than i had expected. it's going to be a party of around 7 or 8 and i am expecting to pay about $20 per person all inclusive.

any other suggestions of restaurants (does not necessarily have to be italian) with great atmosphere and decent student-affordable prices?
[preferable downtown region]

thanks in advance

    Check out Sakura Ichiban Japanese Restaurant at 142 Adelaide East (at Jarvis). Only consistent place where our office holds lunches that no-one has a complaint.....

      Supermarket in Kensington might work for you. Most entrees are in the $10-12 range. Food is quite decent too with some interesting menu options.

        I like Sambuca on Baldwin if you are looking for good food that isn't expensive. It's a lovely spot in a central location. Food is Italian.

        Happy birthday to you.

          Freshwood Grill in Kensington - excellent food, very cool and cheap.
          Swatow in Chinatown for food. I think they also serve beer. Cheap, excellent food, but not big on atmosphere...
          John's Italian Cafe on Baldwin. Very hip and cheap.
          Cafe Diplomatico on College.
          The Real Jerk...

            John's Italian was last hip about 1982. The quality's been downhill ever since, too.

              Oops. It's been a long time since I've been there - maybe not 1982. I was going to mention that I wasn't sure what it would be like now, but didn't think it would be necessary. Guess I was wrong.
