Dimmi Trattoria and Bar is a Yorkville restaurant, which both Hollywood starlets and everyday diners can enjoy. Upscale enough for those with discriminating tastes, yet also a casual and friendly environment, Dimmi is a fine example of how Italian food can be done simply, with delicious results. Ideal for a casual, fine dining experience, Dimmi suits all types – from a business crowd at lunch, to groups of friends and family for dinner.
Different seats = Different Views
The restaurant offers several seating options: a small, street-side patio, a warm and cozy bar and dining area, and a larger, heated rooftop section. People-watchers may prefer the view from the patio, especially at night, when crowds filter in and out of neighbouring bars. For a more private and quiet setting, head to the back of the main dining room.
Cool Cocktails and Italian Food with a Canadian Twist
Dimmi Trattoria and Bar serves mostly traditional Italian fare, but some dishes have a modern, Canadian twist. In general, dishes tend to be lighter than their old-world ancestors, and prepared more simply. Those wishing to stick to the gourmet martinis, including the Dimmi signature ‘tini (prepared with vanilla rum, amaretto and cranberry and orange juices) may want to try the antipasti menu, which has many items that are a light meal in themselves. Larger appetites will be satisfied by the wide variety of pastas (including varieties made with fresh seafood and shellfish) or the thin crust pizzas. Daily specials include pasta and risotto dishes, as well as freshly prepared fish and meats. Some popular choices include calamari fritti, fusilli con pollo, linguini with clams, and many of Dimmi’s pizza selections.
