There’s a new Italian restaurant opening in Toronto this fall.
Cantina Mercatto is the newest addition to the Toronto restaurant group that also operates a number of tavernas and trattorias of the same name.
The new spot is going in on Wellington Street East kitty corner to Berczy Park and is located just around the corner from the restaurant group’s recently shuttered Toronto Street outpost which had been a staple in the neighbourhood for decades.
According to a recent job posting, the incoming cantina intends to reinvent “the underground wine cellar, inspired by sprawling vineyards and coastal Italian resorts.”
While details are still scarce, expect the menu to speak “to the continued evolution of both the traditional and familiar, while paired with creative libations, classic cocktails and a curated mix of flowing wines.”
Address: 20 Wellington Street East, Unit 1, Toronto
