Italian at Pizzeria Via Mercanti in Toronto

Pizzeria Via Mercanti is a new Italian restaurant in Toronto’s Kensington Market. Pizzeria Via Mercanit’s humble offerings showcase Italian pleasantries in the heart of Toronto’s favourite bohemian market.

We shared a pizza which came right out of their piping hot wood burning oven a la Naples. Mike was keen to order an entire plate of fried mushrooms which may seem a bit extravagant but in many ways an essential homage to umami. We chit chatted about our hopes and dreams whilst swigging local beer and carefully tearing at each pizza slice. The real winner was the prosciutto wrapped fagottino. My lord, the most beautiful birthday presents are wrapped in cured pork! Happy 27th birthday to me!

We enjoyed:

Margherittona Pizza

fior di latte, prosciutto crudo, fresh parmesan

Funghi Trifolati

sauteed mixed mushrooms

Fagottino Dinparma

parmigiano cream wrapped in prosciutto
