Via Allegro Ristorante
If you want to see an award winning wine list the size of a big old book, look no further than in Etobicoke. Via Allegro Ristorante is a great Italian restaurant with wine all over---on display, in their world class cabinets, cases, cellars, etc. It is out of control. Also out of control are their prices for food. Last month we went there to celebrate a friend's birthday---I've never seen Italian food priced in the $40's and above per entree. And if you thought price wise, it couldn't get any worse, it could and did. The appetizers were as expensive as a main course! I don't even want to go into details about the food here, because it IS good, but I would never go here again because it just didn't provide good value for what it was. And I can't recommend this place to anyone because of it, either.
