Everyone loves a good Italian meal. Which is why the return of Giro d’Italia presented by American Express this spring is cause for celebration.

From April 4th to 14th, twenty of Toronto’s top Italian restaurants will be offering a special prix fixe menu, each featuring a different region of Italy. Dig into a variety of Italian ingredients and dishes across our fair city from North York to the downtown core, Parkdale to Leslieville.

A 4-course dinner ($52) includes an antipasto, primo, secondo, and dolce. Select restaurants (marked below with *) will also offer a 3-course lunch menu ($32).

Early reservations are available Thursday March 28th to Sunday March 31st for American Express card members, with reservations available to the general public beginning on Monday April 1st.
