In the east end on Queen at Leslie Street sits one of the cities most loved neighborhood eateries. The restaurant is often referred to as “The Nose” due to the large paper mache nose that hangs above the front entrance. The staff here are a delight. The space has a great local vibe to it and the music is vintage oldies. The food is “Mamma’s Italian,” and is a relatively cheap eat. I took my dearest room mate Erica out here for her birthday dinner and we had a blast!
