Joe Badali's Ristorante Italiano & Bar, Toronto, ON

I had supper this evening with my pals, Deb, Liz and Rona.  The four of us worked together back in the mid to last 1990s.

We met at Joe Badali's Ristorante Italiano & Bar at Front/University.

They started us with some bread and olive oil/balsamic vinegar.  Yum!

Deb ordered Spaghetti Carbonara (spaghetti, pancetta, onion, raw egg yolk, cream sauce).  The raw egg yolk kinda freaked me out.

Liz ordered Ravioli DeZucca (housemade butternut squash ravioli, roasted red peppers, grilled yellow squash, spinach, pecans, chunky rose sauce).

Rona ordered Badali's Salsicci (Joe’s house-made grilled Italian sausages, patate fritte, broccoli, apple mustard chutney).

I ordered a pizza with pepperoni and green peppers.  It was good but it was a bit overcooked (note the burnt edges).

And here we are ... Liz, Deb, me and Rona.

It was great to sit, yak and catch up for a couple hours.

Stan was our server and he took good care of us.

I would have sent the pizza back. I don't like it like that.

I ate everything but the crust.
