Very rarely in recent memory has the opening of a new restaurant in a major city caused the same sense of buzz and anticipation as Don Alfonso 1890, which is bringing its Michelin-starred reputation to downtown Toronto.

And even more rarely has a restaurant under this type of spotlight and scrutiny delivered to such high acclaim as Don Alfonso 1890 has since its opening in June of this year with its first North American location, becoming the go-to spot for gourmands in this truly great restaurant town.

Showcasing the incredible talents of Michelin-starred chefs Alfonso Iaccarino and his son Ernesto, Don Alfonso 1890 is an internationally recognized, award-winning restaurant concept bursting with the wonderful fresh flavours of Italy’s Amalfi coast, with exceptional organic ingredients and Mediterranean flair in both its menu and service. The new Toronto location was created in partnership with Nick Di Donato of the Liberty Entertainment Group.

“I am very happy to be bringing Don Alfonso to Toronto,” says Chef Alfonso in an exclusive interview with Dolce on a recent trip to Toronto. “I have many Canadian friends, and in Italy they were always asking when we were coming to Canada. We are pleased to be in Toronto because it has such a big and vibrant Italian community."

Don Alfonso 1890 in Toronto is already making headlines because of its menu reflecting the incredible cooking of Chef Ernesto, and the care and precision taken with each dish, using the finest quality ingredients available.
