You now have a new Liberty Village spot when the craving hits for some quality Italian food.
Just in time for the cold weather, Bugigattolo, a new Calabria-inspired Italian restaurant, will soon open up its doors at 54 Fraser Avenue, offering up comforting home-style dishes.
Taking a rustic approach in creating their food, the new spot has a mandate to base their cooking on old-school Italian preparation techniques, seasonal ingredient availability, and a unique set of cultural influences.
Just what the ‘hood needs, right? (No, seriously, we can’t get enough, especially when we’re in need of a break from the ample high-end pub grub).
Don’t worry about getting all dressed up either; while it’s designed to taste like home, it also feels like home, offering a relaxed environment to shamelessly indulge in the gourmet goodness.
By “goodness,” this means things like lasagna made in-house and topped with shaved Parmesan, an assortment of pizzas, and artistic looking pastas that are totally worth breaking that diet for. Vegetarian dishes include things like the sauce-heavy (in a good way) Eggplant Parmigiana and the hearty Insalata Radiccio.
They’re even open for brunch, with offerings that go well beyond your typical bacon and egg dish. Those perfect sunny-side-ups come with a side of things like heirloom tomato, prosciutto, and provolone cheese.
Naturally, their cappuccinos also rival those of some of the neighbourhood’s gourmet coffee joints.
Welcome to the neighbourhood, Bugigattolo!
