Little Italy

Little Italy is an area in Toronto that is sometimes referred to as College Street West. It is populated with Italian restaurants and businesses, hence the name Little Italy. There is also a significant Latin and Portuguese presence in the area. Centred at the intersection of College and Grace Streets, the neighbourhood is located on a strip along College Street that is heavily occupied by restaurants, bars and shops.

There is an abundance of sidewalk cafes; such as Café Diplomatico, Bitondos Pizza, Riviera Bakery and Sicilian Ice Cream; that extend from Manning Avenue to the east to Shaw Street to the west. The Italian Walk of Fame is a popular tourist attraction in the district, where granite and brass stars are laid out along the sidewalk with names of notable Italians.

The homes in Little Italy are mainly detached or semi-detached Edwardian styled family homes that date back to the early 1900s, with front porches and smaller lots.
