  1. Hi there,

    You could try Mezza Notte at Disera and Centre. It's a safe yet unspectacular choice. Personally I love the food at Abruzzo's, and they recently expanded but I don't think I would call the ambiance and decor very special occasion friendly. It's more geared to the lunch crowd by design.

    The only sushi places we eat at up here are the AYCE joints but I wouldn't really say any one in particular is special or noteworthy.

      1. re: Luvtooeat

        I don't know about their pizza, but Abruzzo's pasta dishes are among the worst I've ever had. I'm mean criminally bad.

      2. I'd suggest Ferrovia Ristorante for Italian. Decent place and the dim lights seems fitting for something a little more romantic.

        For Japanese, I'd go further to Richmond hill like Inatei.

        1. We celebrated my husband's birthday last night at Mideastro Bistro at Atkinson and Bathurst. We did have a Groupon. The restaurant is beautiful inside and the staff were honestly interested in how we were enjoying everything. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were large. He had a beer, a salad with warm mushrooms and goats cheese, veal osso bucco and a nutella parfait dessert. I had calamari and shrimp as an appetizer, a steak and tiramisu. That's what the Groupon allowed us. I had reserved on Open Table and commented that it was my husband's birthday and they put a candle in his dessert! We will return. We were very pleasantly surprised. Nice to find a restaurant close to home that we would consider special.
