Ozzerro on Mt. Pleasant. Anyone been?

This place opened a few months ago, where the short-lived Cambalache was. Decent looking menu. Anyone tried it yet?

505 Mount Pleasant Rd, Toronto, ON M4S2L9, CA

      Thanks. I'll try it soon and post something in my own limited vocabulary.

        ;-) Hope it's worthwhile. I miss Allo Bistro.

        Edit: Darn, Yelp beat CH to reviewing Ozzero first:

        I went when it was still open and was overwhelmed with how oily the pastas were. I felt sick leaving. Wasn't in a hurry to return.

      3. Has anybody been here yet?
        It's featured on a new deal site today and I'm tempted to try this out.

          Ended up buying one. Will report back after I try it out.

            Thanks for taking one for the team. Looking forward to your thoughts/

        2. Looks like Ozzero has now closed -- there's a For Lease sign in the window. That didn't last long...

            I wonder why he'd open a cheap italian restaurant in that area.

            And he should have stuck to what he probably knew best, which is not Italian food.

            Here is an article from the local paper :

              The place always looked dead every time I walked by it, so I'm not suprised...

              I feel kinda sorry for him. But his plan wasn't really a good one - for example, I don't get his comment to the Town Crier that there are a lot of fine dining restaurants on Mt. Pleasant, but not a lot of casual dining. I'd say that the "fine dining" spots he refers to are actually more mid-range, and there are quite a number of casual spots (eg. Bread and Butter, The Longest Yard, Penrose, Granite, what was Casa di Giorgio and is now the Thai place...). Also, the spot he chose really doesn't get much traffic. Not to mention that his menu really looked uninspiring, especially considering all the other really great options in the area.

                And I bet if he had opened a good Indian or Sri Lankan restaurant he would still be in business as there aren't many of those in that area.
