Trio (Toronto)

Trio Toronto

Situated over two levels, Trio’s second floor over looks North York’s Yonge Street and is ideal for larger groups or private parties. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, reminiscent of traditional Italian restaurants. The complimentary focaccia wedges alone are worth a visit; the decadent bread further doused with olive oil and aromatic roasted garlic and rosemary sprinkled over top. If it weren’t for the promise of pizza to come, I’d inhale the entire plate.

Anyone who works at Trio has to have an amazing memory… that evening they easily had another dozen off menu specials. The burrata caprese salad ($19.50) was the appetizer offering and great for sharing. A fair sized sphere of milky soft burrata was simply dressed with olive oil, basil and salt. For the winter visit, the meaty sliced tomatoes were surprisingly ripe and overall the caprese a great start.

For a pizza called the al pollo ($17), there was a sparse amount of actual chicken sprinkled over top. There was plenty of cheese through, with a thick layer of mozzarella and large dollops of goat cheese. Even with the roasted red peppers, something with a bit of crunch like red onions would have helped to give the pizza some interest and contrast.

My husband’s Calabrese ($16) was more flavourful from the salty slices of soppressata and green olives. Additionally, it went really nicely with the chili oil the restaurant provides for the added spice. Nonetheless, both pizzas had a wonderful soft Neapolitan crust with its requisite chewy texture and little charred bits.

Although it’s like ordering apple pie at an American restaurant, the tiramisu was calling – so loudly that we needed two slices for our table of four. Thankfully we did order more than one as the cake was exactly to my taste – moist, well balanced between biscuits & mascarpone and an abundance of espresso flavours. A sweet ending to a decent Italian meal.
