This isn't the first time Don Alfonso has been recognized by this brand — it also ranked number two for the same category in 2019.
The restaurant also came in first for Meal of the Year 2022 for its multi-course tasting menu, and dishes like the Tagliatelle alla rosa canina and Vesuvio di Rigatoni were praised.
The venue is the only North American location of the Don Alfonso brand, and it brings the flavours of the Amalfi coast to Toronto. Set in the castle conservatory, you can enjoy a meal surrounded by chandeliers, stained glass, and more.
The only other Canadian restaurant to rank in the Best Italian Restaurant awards was Cioppino’s, a spot located in Vancouver.
Don Alfonso 1890 offers a la carte dishes as well as a classic tasting menu. The restaurant is closing as of January 5 due to indoor dining restrictions, but it will reopen once restrictions lift.
