FIORE

This Italian restaurant in the heart of South Granville has it all.

and wine be thy joy

As their website points out, FIORE is part casual trattoria, part Italian wine shop and part charming market You can grab a bottle from an extensive collection of Italian varieties and go, or make a reservation to eat there (when indoor dining is allowed again).

I took my sister for her birthday to their sister (ha, ha – no pun intended) restaurant FIORE FAMIGLIA at their Kits location so we could enjoy a nice heated patio.  Although at first we went to get a bottle of beautiful organic Northern Italian wine from the S Granville location to bring with us. Wine that you cannot buy in a regular wine shop or liquor store.  It was excellent.  Smooooth!

tasty bowl of warm olives to start

We shared pappardelle with braised short rib, sundried tomatoes, arugula, garlic cream, parmesan +fried shallots.  AND; roasted butternut squash ravioli with tomato beurre blanc, toasted pine nuts, friend sage + pickled apples.

The food was truly outstanding.  Service and presentation too – I’m talking about you, Jacob!

Finished with moist Olive Oil Cake with fresh berries, whipped cream + sprig of mint.

We’ll be back!
