Bloor & Dufferin restaurant suggestions

Looking for a reasonably priced, nice atmosphere, good food for a group of 8-10 people. Love some suggestions. Could be italian or other suggestions welcome.

  1. El Jacal - definitely reasonably priced, lovely hospitality and good for a group of 8-10. Great Mexican food. If you're looking for something a little more upscale, it ain't that - atmosphere is casual, friendly and family-style more than "nice".

      If you don't mind the decor and lack of liquor license, South Indian Dosa Mahal is awesome. West of Dufferin, north side, at Marguerita I believe. Tamil / south Indian cuisine, it's delicious, nutritious and very reasonable.

    2. I've heard good things about Roma, though I haven't been yet.

      I'd link it if I could, but that function doesn't seem to be working.

        I've been there once and had stuffed calimari. Which was not what you might think, it was a single good sized squid stuffed with a typical bread/herb stuffing you would normally associate with a turkey (and some vegetables/potatoes on the side).

        Service wasn't bad, and the dish was competently prepared, just that the combination of (not shrimp) stuffing and squid was a bit weird.
