Chef-owner Basilio Pesce made waves when he opened his seasonally focused eatery just over a year ago on Queen West. He wanted to give Nonna's Italian cuisine a modern spin, and he's done that with vibrant, tasty plates of food that present a myriad of flavors that you don't often see together.
Must-Try Dish: Porzia's octopus is a must-have; grilled chunks of octopus are tossed with semolina, peanut and apple. Also try the pine-nut gnocchi in tangy puttanesca sauce.
Good to Know: Porzia has one of the top cocktail menus in the neighborhood, featuring dozens of housemade bitters and ingredients.
