Gusto 101

101 Portland St, Toronto, ON M5V 2N3

The cavernous lower level wine cellar offers an intimate industrial space while the sun-soaked rooftop party table is available all-season thanks to a retractable glass roof and central heating. Brunch, lunch and dinner menus see rustic Italian fare — think pizzas, pastas and antipasti — served on family-style sharing platters. The $1-per-ounce house wine on tap is a real crowd pleaser.

Enoteca Sociale

1288 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1X7

We bet your nonna would approve of a homemade Roman family feast in the cellar at this authentic Italian wine and pasta bar on Dundas West. The intimate space (suitable for between eight to 14 guests) overlooks the restaurant’s notorious cheese cave so be sure to ask your server if you can pop next door for a tour after the meal. Menus range from $45 to $60 per person and feature a variety of salumi, formaggi, antipasti and pasta options.


57 Adelaide St E, Toronto, ON M5C 1K6

Whether you’re hosting an intimate dinner for 10 or a large-scale event with 80 guests, this popular pizzeria offers plenty of private rooms and semi-private alcoves and each with their own unique décor. Smaller parties can order off the a la carte menu — which features over 25 Neopolitan pizza variations — while larger parties dine on family-style platters that encourage sharing.

Pizzeria Libretto

550 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1P8

Pizzaeria Libretto’s VPN certified thin-crust pies are the stuff of legends among Toronto pizza lovers.

At the Danforth location you’ll find a semi-private dining room hidden in the downstairs cellar area. The cozy spot is ideal for small groups up to 12 people.
