ISO Pasta Bolognese

Where's the best pasta bolognese to be found in Toronto? Looking for a birthday dinner venue for a family member who loves this dish.
I am going to throw you a curve ball and suggest an 'Italian/Japanese' pasta bar called ' Shiso Tree Cafe' inside J-Town. You'll be surprised by the quality of their pastas! Their Bolognese sauce actually uses a mix of Angus beef and veal and Berkeshire pork! Surprisingly authentic and tasty. Tutti Mati's wild boar ragu pasta is pretty good too!.

Finally made it to Shiso Tree for lunch and was not disappointed. Tasty Bolognese sauce and al dente pasta to my liking. My husband ordered a seafood pasta and really enjoyed it. All in all a great experience with great service as well. What a lovely atmosphere. I can't believe it took this long for me to find J-Town and its associated eateries (also recommend Niwatei ramen).
I had dinner at Tutti Matti years ago, I think it was the first year they opened, and happened to have ordered that ragu pasta dish. It was memorable - tender meat, fresh garlic and tomato on wide egg noodles. Definitely time to go back!
