Monte Cristo Toronto Italian Restaurant and Piano Bar review


If you're looking for a great Italian restaurant with a fine dining experience complete with piano bar, Monte Cristo's is a good choice. The Toronto Italian restaurant is run by three brothers in the Philopes family: Filepo, Massimo and Ciro. This place has style and is the perfect place for a nice romantic dinner in the city of Toronto.

The food is prepared with flare, and although other Toronto restaurant reviews have pegged some of Monte Cristo's entrees as a bit pricey, the ambiance and menu selection makes up for the extra few dollars you'll spend for dining in style.

It can sometimes be difficult to find vegetarian restaurants in Toronto, let alone vegetarian meals on a menu in a Toronto restaurant, but the Monte Cristo doesn't disappoint. Vegetarian and carnivores alike should try the mouth watering marinated and roasted zucchini with potatoes and red peppers. Served in artful stack with a creamy sunchoke puree.

Other items on menu include lamb, sirloin, fresh fish and seafood, exquisite Italian breads, fine cheeses and smoked venison salamis, and of course many Italian deserts are on the menu for rounding off the meal.
