The latest Italian bistro that is taking Toronto by storm is the sister restaurant to Lil’ Baci called Lil’ Baci Taverna. A couple of weeks ago, they invited some Toronto food lovers to try out the new menu – and when I say menu, I mean almost the entire menu. Starting with fresh cocktails and some lovely homemade crostini – I will add that the Lil’ Baci bread is one that is not easily forgotten – the meal consisted of over 20 menu items…. Yes 20. The food was excellent but I will say that I thought it was a tad too much. That said, there were some highlights including a mortadella gnudi with mushrooms and mascarpone that has me pining to go back very soon.
