Campagnolo

Campagnolo's big windows overlooking Dundas Street West and Euclid Avenue let in so much light, every photo came out stunning.  More spacious than imagined, getting a table on a Sunday night was surprisingly easy, especially since hearing the night before, actress Jessica Biel was turned away because there was no room.  Other well known faces were already there including members of Metric, Arcade Fire and K-OS.  Back to Sunday, it was also early, so that helped too.          
The resto's motto posted on their website - 'good honest home cooked food,' certainly rang true. Here is the rundown; house made baguette and gougeres; summer squash arancini with taleggio cheese; local burrata with roasted grapes and toasted bread; treviso and escarole salad with grilled nectarines and candied walnuts; chickpea and proscuitto agnolotii with cauliflower and fava beans; and organic steak with wild mushrooms, truffled matchsticks and smoked gorgonzola butter.  The roasted grapes on the burrata and toast worked well. Drinks were also great.  Try the dark and stormy.  Dessert may have been the best concoction though - a butterscotch pudding with caramel and chucks of chocolate meringue.
