This elegant café oozes exuberance - in its menu, décor, and for its clientele, a combo generally conducive to the very best dining experience. On the active and bright ground floor, one can watch their Italian fare being prepared in an open-concept kitchen. For a more intimate setting away from the very Yorkville-esque social scene, saunter up the steep stairs and huddle in leather couches by a fireplace. Dark brown textured walls contrasted with traditional Italian décor also add warmth. Both the heated rooftop and ground level patios are summer havens for daytime shoppers and night-lifers alike. Reserve a room for private functions of up to 60 people with luncheon, dinner, buffet and cocktail menu choices.
Café Nervosa’s extensive and wholly Italian menu offers an array of salads featuring arugula, bocconcini, cesare, spinach, and seafood, as well as authentic antipasti, including cornbread bruschetta, grilled calamari, and beef carpaccio. Fagioli, rigatoni, capellini, and ravioli pastas penetrate palates with creamy, pesto, or tomato-based sauces, topped or stuffed with flavourful mixtures of veggies, cheeses, meat and seafood. Thin-crusted pizzas, wide in diameter and selection, bear unique toppings including brie and bocconcini, Yukon gold potatoes, eggplant, artichokes or walnuts, and the rich flavours of anchovies, salami and prosciutto. After 5pm, Menu Secondi extends exquisite entrees featuring risotto, chicken, fish and grilled strip loin sensations. After dinner desserts include Italian delicacies like biscotti, sorbetto and tartufo, plus hits like chocolate cheesecake and the dish created for wealthy blondes, crème brulee. Whatever the meal or occasion, Café Nervosa offers an enticing blend of pizzazz, vibrancy and serenity.
