Domaine MaMo

At Domaine MaMo, there is no doubt your meal will be delicious as renowned Chef Didier has worked at several Michelin Starred Parisian restaurants and won the Medal of the Chevalier de l’Ordre du Maître Agricole (Knight of Order of Agricultural Merit). 

This upscale dining experience is now even better with a patio! Guests can now enjoy some of the finest dishes Toronto has to offer outdoors.

For a homey meal on a summer day, try Florentia. With locally sourced ingredients and a focus on a healthy lifestyle, Florentia is a go-to for Tuscan cuisine. 

All of their produce is sourced locally from Ontario, whereas their fish is sourced from the Mediterranean. In addition, the restaurant uses only extra virgin olive oil for cooking, a common practice in Tuscan dishes.

Florentia was one of the first seven restaurants in Ontario to be awarded the Hospitality Seal from the Italian Chamber of Commerce, a high honour recognizing Italian restaurants outside of Italy. 

We’d recommend sharing a bottle of wine and enjoying a nice appetizer, perhaps the burrata. For your entre, try favourites like the mediterranean sea bass. If you are still hungry, finish it off with zabaione al marsala, a dessert of warm custard with Sicilian Marsala wine, sugar and egg. 

Some menu highlights

  • Veal or Chicken Scallopini
  • Rigatoni Ai Funghi 
  • Florentina Pizza
