Dimmi’s Bar and Trattoria

On Cumberland Street in Yorkville, Dimmi’s Bar and Trattoria reigns supreme with their authentic and tasteful Italian cuisine. I had been here once back when I used to live in Yorkville, but I haven’t been in nearly 3 years. I was happy to have gone back with one of my close friends, who I decided to…

Nota Bene

Upon a suggestion of a friend who told me about Nota Bene on Queen Street, I decided that I would have a taste of it for the first time when I was in Toronto. Based on my prior research, they had an offering of a 6 course meal for their “Taste of August” special, so that’s…
