Paese [paˈeze] means “town or village” and for us this symbolizes neighborhood. Our two Italian restaurants in Toronto emphasize pairings: Wine to Food, Food to Place – thus each Paese offers its own atmosphere, menu, and experience. Our original Paese opened almost 25 years ago and has stayed true to a handcrafted and housemade approach to a menu that’s Italian-inspired, with a distinctive and original made-in-Canada twist. The multi-region wine list at each location is not only a wine lover’s dream but is reasonably priced for all to appreciate.
