Eataly Toronto’s Trattoria Milano reopens


Toronto – Eataly Toronto’s restaurant celebrating Milan’s culture, design and cuisine reopened its doors on Nov. 10 to offer dinner service.

Trattoria Milano, on second floor of Italian marketplace Eataly Toronto, aims to capture Milan’s unique dichotomy, an avant-garde city recognized as a leading design, fashion and art capital, surrounded by a countryside which has heavily influenced its simple, rustic and rich cuisine.

“At Trattoria Milano, we’ve brought a little piece of Milano to the heart of Toronto. From the classic dishes we’re serving to the drinks we’re pouring to the art adorning the walls, every small moment gives guests an authentic taste of the iconic Italian city,” said Nico Dagnino, Eataly Toronto’s managing director.

With rich, hearty dishes characteristic of Northern Italy, Milanese cuisine focuses on ingredients sourced from the land and produced in the various regions of the area. Executed by Trattoria Milano’s Chef de Cuisine, Luca Lussoso, the restaurant’s menu features traditional dishes that have made Milano a world-class culinary destination. Prepared using high-quality local and authentic Italian ingredients, highlights include:

  • L’Ossobuco (better known in Milan as “Osbus”) served for four on a bed of vibrant saffron risotto, and finished with gremolata
  • Cotoletta alla Milanese, a traditional Milanese dish that dates back to 1134 that is made with a thinly pounded, bone-in veal chop that is breaded and fried
  • Risotto allo Zafferano, made with saffron, a bone marrow broth, and Parmigiano Reggiano DOP

Trattoria Milano’s beverage program will feature the Negroni, Sbagliato Rosa, Cocchi Rosa and sparkling rosé. Trattoria Milano’s wine list will offer guests one of the largest selections of Italian wines in Canada and, just like the food menu, has northern influence highlighting the Barolo, Barbaresco, Franciacorta, Valpolicella and Alto Adige regions.

Eataly Toronto is located at Bay and Bloor streets in Toronto’s Manulife Centre.
