Gnudi in Toronto

I had a most delicious dish in Florence that I now believe to be gnudi. Does anyone know of a restaurant in Toronto that serves this?

  1. Haven't tried it, but Colborne Lane has pumpkin gnudi on their menu.

    I did order gnudi at the Gallery Grill last year, but it's no longer on the menu.

      Hmmm. I was hoping for a more traditional type.

      Anyone?

        My fiancee has had gnudi at Tutti Matti on Adelaide. But that was a few years ago. They were spinach and ricotta, and he said they were light and delicious.

          That's exactly what I'm looking for! It's not on their menu anymore though.

    2. Tutti Matti still offers gnudi on their prix fixe menu -

      Vertical has gnudi on the menu but looks untraditional -

      If you're up for a day trip, the Ancaster Inn also has gnudi on the menu, with Monforte Dairy Ricotta, sweet peas, asparagus & oyster mushrooms. I guess that's not traditional either --

        I totally missed the prix fixe menu. Thanks!

        While the Ancaster Inn's gnudi may not be totally traditional, it sounds awesome. Thanks again.

      2. I was about to post this exact same topic. I just got a craving for gnudi from The Spotted Pig in NYC.

        Any other suggestions fo gnudi in Toronto? Are we a city lacking in gnudi??

        1. Mildred's Temple Kitchen has it on the menu, and its delicious.

              I agree Mildred's Temple gnudi is delcious...but I am also on this site today because I was having extreme...almost desperate cravings for the Spotted Pig's Gnudi.

          2. Gallery Grill (only open for lunch at Hart House) has had the spinach-ricotta style gnudi on their menu. It usually makes an appearance for six weeks every year, depending on the season.

              I may be imagining things, but I believe I saw them on the menu at Oddfellows on Queen St. Call ahead. They were the traditional ricotta ones. (But they're also easy-peasy to make at home http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo... You can ignore most of the fancy sauce stuff, if you want.)

            2. Atlantic on Dundas has had it on their menu, but it changes quite regularly, so you'd want to check in advance if it will be served that day.

              1. I don't profess to be a gnudi expert, but I had some super-fantastic ricotta gnudi with brown butter and porcini mushrooms at Grace about a month or so ago. I still dream about them...

                  That sounds awesome. I'll have to check Grace out.

                  1. re: torontofoodiegirl

                    Another thumbs up for the gnudi at Grace. We had it with tomato sauce.

                  2. Luma at TIFF Lightbox has it.
