Discover Osteria Du, an Italian restaurant in Toronto, Canada, with tasty dishes prepared without any ingredients of animal origin.


Located in the Fashion District neighborhood, Osteria Du is a restaurant that serves renowned Italian dishes in a vegan version, that is, without any ingredients of animal origin (meat, eggs, dairy products). Thinking about also serving customers with food restrictions or allergies, the restaurant also offers gluten-free options and never uses peanuts in any of its dishes. The restaurant also offers a pizza delivery service, known as Pizzeria Du and a Gelato Bar opposite, with different flavors of ice cream.

We went to Osteria Du for dinner on Paulo's birthday eve. He received a glass of sparkling wine as a toast and we ordered one for me too so we could celebrate the date. We started by ordering two starters: the Fritto Funghi, which was a dish prepared with breaded and fried mushrooms, chilli pepper and served with pesto sauce; and also a salad Caesar Deluxe, prepared with romaine lettuce and kale, croutons, sun-dried tomatoes, onion, almond parmesan cheese and Caesar-style dressing.

For main dishes, I really wanted to eat pizza and ordered one of the classic pizzas on the menu, the Mediterranean Pizza, prepared with tomato sauce, artichoke hearts, smoked garlic, cashew mozzarella, basil, balsamic sauce, almond parmesan.

Paulo was delighted with the Eggplant Parmigiana, an eggplant parmigiana made with cashew mozzarella cheese, smoked peppers, tomato sauce, vegan parmesan cheese, basil and roasted cherry tomatoes.

To complete our delicious dinner, we ordered a dessert to share. Our choice was brownie sundae, a locally made ice cream, with brownie, toasted hazelnuts and chocolate sauce! It was delicious and really capped off our night.

We liked everything about the restaurant: the atmosphere, the service, the kindness in giving Paulo a glass of sparkling wine and, of course, the food, which was very tasty!

UPDATE! Unfortunately, Osteria Du is definitively closing on September 30, 2023 due to an increase in the rent of the property where it is located, as announced on its social networks. It's really a shame that such a cool restaurant is forced to close its doors.
