Who says you have to travel to Italy to savour some mouthwatering authentic fare? At Mirto, detail-oriented chefs prepare classic Italian dishes that have been passed down generation after generation. Hot and fresh baked bread always hits the spot. An inspiring wine list never disappoints. A gourmet pizza makes your mouth water. What are you waiting for?
Hail to Caesar!
This neighbourhood restaurant is packed with locals and tourists who come to savour classically Italian fare with subtle Mediterranean influences. A small but selective menu features homemade soups, hearty salads, fresh seafood, and shareable mains. On the apps menu discover mussels drenched in a spicy tomato, garlic and white wine sauce, along with bocconcini drizzled with olive oil. For one of the tastiest Caesar salads around, you’ve come to the right place. Mirto’s Caesar is loaded with homemade croutons, house dressing, tons of fresh garlic, and crispy pancetta. Be sure to pop a mint after because this salad’s dressing is deliciously potent!
Oozing with every Bite
A handful of Italian-style pizzas ooze with fresh tomato sauce and your daily dose of veggies. Hot cheesy slices of the Marghertia (mozzarella and basil) along with the Bonita (pesto, mozzarella, goat cheese, arugula, roasted garlic and roasted peppers) are definite winners. Homemade pasta dishes get flavourful when topped with made-from-scratch sauces such as light tomato white wine sauce and pecorino sauce. For seafood lovers, the cumin dusted grilled shrimp comes highly recommended. Large shrimp get an exotic twist with jicama, mango, avocado salad and passion fruit vinaigrette. A handful of meat dishes such as tender grilled veal chop and roasted chicken with smoked tomato jam complete a fantastic menu.
