Don't let the name deceive you, a sleepy neighbourhood for migrants from the 'Old Country' this is not. The days are long gone where the neighbourhood was the primary landing point for Italian immigrants coming to Canada; the affordable homes in Little Italy have been attracting a diversity of cultures for many years. More recently however, Little Italy's Edwardian and Victorian row houses and semi-detached homes have been enticing urban professionals and young hipsters wanting to live near what is now a hub of Toronto nightlife and shopping.
Though the scenery has changed immensely over the years, there are still some of the original Italian eateries, cafes, and clothing stores that recall Little Italy's origins. Bar Italia, Cafe Diplomatico, and many others still offer traditional fine Italian fare with European ambiance. But now, the area is also home to the next generation of sleek pubs, trendy bistros, and Toronto's best martini bars to boot. Boutique clothing shops also line this stretch of College Street, tempting residents as they go for weekend strolls to the local bakeries.
With the city core just a quick streetcar ride way, and the prices of homes still quite reasonable given the local amenities and proximity to downtown, Little Italy is a great choice for home buyers looking to live in a downtown Toronto neighbourhood that is alive with activity.
