TOCA... Handcrafted Italian

TOCA represents the best of Toronto, Canada, and as one of the most acclaimed restaurants in the diverse culinary spectrum of downtown Toronto, TOCA provides a unique take on handcrafted Italian cuisine created with the best of Canada’s natural bounty focusing on seasonal flavours and locally sourced produce.

Located in the heart of the Performing Arts & Theatre District, TOCA is proud to collaborate with renowned Chef Oliver Glowig from Rome.


Sumptuous Grilled Cheese Menu - Only in April

Inspired by the TOCA's popular Cheese Cave, the menu features five cheesy options including the signature TOCA sandwich which contains house-made grilled sourdough, organic prosciutto, arugula salad with truffle moliterno and Le 1608 cheese from Quebec’s Charlevoix region, topped with fresh Canadian lobster for $45.

During the month of April, we are also offering four additional varieties on a weekly rotation including:

- Focaccia with smoked mozzarella, tomato and almond pesto
- Sour dough with pancetta, aged cheddar and pickled peppers
- French baguette with brie, grilled NY striploin, avocado and caramelized onion
- Multigrain toast topped with pickled mushrooms, spinach and TOCA 3-cheese blend
