Whenever we are looking for good bowl of pasta, we always make our way to GRAZIE. There are a lot of Italian restaurants in Toronto, but  I would have to say Grazie is one of the best. The food is consistently good, whether the place is packed or almost empty (which hardly ever happens). The menu provides a large assortment of pizzas and pastas; most people rave about their pasta for it is made in-house daily. The service is always friendly and attentive, and if you go as much as we do they even begin to remember your order and make you feel part of the Grazie family.

AM ordered the PAESANA. A rich tomato sauce with fresh peppers and ground Italian sausage piled high on fresh Fettucini.  What's nice about this dish is that they leave the sausage in large chucks so you can really taste the flavours of the meat in each bite you take. This large, rustic bowl of pasta is sure to fill you up. Although, if you are like AM, you will need to save some bread to ensure you don't leave any drop of sauce or meat behind.

My go-to dish is always the TERAMO. This delicious bowl of fresh spaghetti comes with artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, green onions, parsley and a large dollop of goat cheese. Its dressed with dressed with an olive oil and garlic which sounds rather simple but as you mix the goat cheese into the sauce it becomes creamy and packed with flavour. I always try and recreate this at home, but  can never get it to taste like there's.

Would we go back? Yes

Teramo although AM would say the Paesana!
