Italian Renaissance

There’s a new reason to pay a visit to La Bruschetta, an institution in Toronto’s Corso Italia for nearly 30 years. The family-owned haven for traditional Italian cuisine now features a special menu focusing on Umbria, a region known for producing some of the world’s finest olive oils. Indulge a hearty appetite with such homestyle fare as ciriolle, $18—thick pasta tossed with Swiss chard, cannelini beans, garlic and white wine—or prosciutto-wrapped veal with asparagus and smoked cheese, $28. Another attraction: the low-key resto is preferred by local and visiting celebrities including Ryan Gosling, Matthew Broderick, and even Sophia Loren.
