Piola, Toronto, ON

Gord and I didn't feel like cooking so had supper tonight at Piola on Queen Street W in our 'hood.

It recently opened and we've been wanting to try it.

We took a look around the inside.

These chairs are made from old clothes that have been pressed (like boards).  They are quite heavy.

It was such a nice evening so we sat on the patio.

It was a great spot for people-watching on Queen Street W.

Gord ordered the Carbonara pizza.

He said it was good and would order it again.

I ordered Spaghetti all'Antonia.

The meatballs were really good.  The sauce was good ... I'm surprised that the pasta wasn't fresh, though (it seemed to be packaged).

For dessert, Gord and I split a Torta nera & gelato.

It was really good.  The ice cream contrasted nicely with the warm brownie/cake.  Gord's not into sweets but he said he would order one for himself next time.

We'll be back!
