25. Italy: Cafe Diplomatico

Cafe Diplomatico
594 College Street
(west of Bathurst at Clinton)
416 534 4637

"The Dip", as it's referred to locally was established in 1968. Located in the heart of Little Italy, it is light and airy with a large terrace.
We chose: linguini with pesto $10.95, antipasto diplomatico $8.45, grilled paninno - prosciutto, havarti and sliced tomato on ciabatta with cole slaw $6.99. We were impressed with the pasta. The tasty house red was a Brindisi at $6.00 a glass. Total for three generous lunches with wine $57.37 plus tip.
The place was busy on this Saturday lunchtime. Folk were queueing at the door by 12:30. The service was prompt and pleasant if a bit hit and miss.
