Toronto, ON M5R 2H4
A restaurant so nice they named it twice! Ristorante Sotto Sotto is the Annex's long-established destination for upscale, south-central Italian fare with all food made as if it were the old country. Owner and founder Marisa Rocca moved to Toronto from Rome over 25 years ago and, through much hard work and determination, has an established a clientele base and made a name for herself as one of Toronto's best. To maintain the integrity and authenticity of its dishes, Sotto Sotto uses only freshest ingredients and does not allow for substitutions. But with options like the carbonara made with artisanal Zaccagni spaghetti tossed with crispy pork cheek, Sarawak black pepper and Roman pecorino cheese, what would you want to change? Worth noting is their partnership with the non-profit Mealshare Canada wherein ordering certain indicated menu items provides a meal to a youth in need.
