Rielly said he and Virtue love living in Toronto and exploring their city.
"We love taking advantage of what's going on in the city and trying new spots, trying different neighbourhoods," he shared. "I've always enjoyed that, so now to do that together is a lot of fun."
When it comes to Rielly's favourite neighbourhood in the 6ix, his heart lies in one particular area.
"My favourite neighbourhood is Queen West. It's where I used to live," the Leafs player shared. "So I like going back over there. I like going to all the neighbourhood spots."
"You know, again, we like kind of exploring a little bit, but that area will always have a special place in my heart for sure after living there for a couple of years."
Address: Multiple locations
Why You Need To Go: If you're an ice skating fan and an Italian food lover, you may want to give Buca a try considering it's Tessa Virtue's and Morgan Rielly's go-to date night spot.
