Giro d’Italia 2018
Bringing together some of Toronto’s best Italian restaurants, Giro d’Italia took its guests on an expansive tour of Italian cuisine. This 10-day culinary affair featured 15 of Toronto’s best Italian restaurants, including Locale Mercatto, Paese and Cucinato. Each restaurant represented a different region in Italy through its menu, for example Enoteca Sociale represented Umbria while Yolanda’s Spuntino Casa represented Sicily. This form of representation allowed for a diverse range of Italy’s cuisines to be tasted and exposed to the public. Each restaurant offered a $52 prix-fixe menu composed of antipasti, primi, secondi and dolce during the 10-day span.
With reservations being accepted, attendees could eat at 10 different restaurants or could go to Giro d’Italia’s website, check out the menus and choose their preferred location. Although this event was only offered for 10 days this year, don’t worry — this incredible event will be relaunching next year to run at the same time as Winterlicious and Summerlicious.
