I was so pleased to spend my last day at Planeterra enjoying lunch with my coworkers Liz, Kelly and Jeff. I had been wanting to check out Tutti Matti for some time as it is literally a stones throw from the G Adventures building at Adelaide and Charlotte Street. It was a sunny spring afternoon and my heart felt a bit bittersweet. Just like Spring where one day will be bitter cold and another a hopeful tease for summer…leaving any job is always hard. I had worked with a great team and spent most of meal contemplating my future and remembering the many fond memories from the past two years. We all held up out glasses and cheered to a fresh start for Dobbernation!
Tutti Matti’s service was painfully slow especially since the restaurant was not even half full. My ravioli was mediocre, the butter sauce was soupy as the pasta had not been properly strained before being added to the dish. Jeff enjoyed the short ribs and Liz’s salad looked fresh. Kelly complained that her hand rolled pasta Pinci looked a bit like worms which she found unappetizing. We all started with the FAGottini (obviously we had to, right?)
We ordered (* notes my favorites):
chickpea flour crepe stuffed with cipollini, Italian cheeses, truffle honey
Insalate della Principessa
baby spinach, bufala mozzarella, pine nuts, prosciutto, grilled apple, dried balsamic fig, saba vinaigrette
hand rolled pasta, stewed eggplant, tomatoes, red onions, fresh chili, capers, briciole
Ravioli di Zucca
roasted squash and amaretto cookie ravioli, butter sage sauce
Costole di Manzo
beef short ribs slow roasted in Italian beer, oranges, rosemary and garlic
#317 restaurant reviewed in Ontario since moving to Toronto in 2010.
