Gia is a delicious vegetarian Italian restaurant that allows seasonal Ontario produce to shine in plates of pasta that manage to taste plenty rich, even without meat and cheese. Start with the panko-crusted vegan meatballs made with plant protein and Impossible Beef before moving on to pillowy porcini agnolotti. Finish with the olive oil cake, which is usually topped with a seasonal fruit compote like autumn-spiced pears and vegan buttercream. They also have a great wine list, with plenty of organic and sustainable wines that are mainly from Italy but also include some surprises like a local orange wine from Cave Spring winery in Beamsville, Ontario. The restaurant makes the most of its small space by packing its marble tables close together, not to mention you’ll get a great view of the chefs at work in the open kitchen in the back.
