The family style menu at this Italian restaurant with locations on the Danforth and Eglinton West doesn’t even require booking ahead of time, but it does require extreme hunger. An assortment of antipasti such as calamari and caprese salad is followed by the day’s primi pastas, and your choice of entree.

This historic Elm Street standby offers their “feasting menu” to parties of five or more. Your British pub extravaganza might centre around English classics like beef wellington, roasts, or pork loin with apple sauce. Or, go hog wild and share a suckling pig.

This elevated Malaysian street food restaurant on Ossington pulls no punches on its menu, inscribed simply at the top with the words “feed me.” With this request you may be presented with a variety of dishes such as chili wings, pork belly pancakes, and traditional fare such as laksa and murtabak.

This Italian spot on Harbord offers a family style menu of house favourites, all Italian go-tos with pastas like egg yolk ravioli and pumpkin agnolotti.

This humbly-named restaurant at Evergreen Brick Works is one of few places to feature a vegetarian family menu, as well as a fish-based one, or for those with no restrictions whatsoever a chef’s choice menu. Their menu emphasizes the best locally available ingredients, and thus changes frequently.
