The stellar one-page wine list will be enough to impress at this Ossington hangout. Sky lights give this all-day bar a bright, airy vibe, if you're looking for a daytime date. At night, expect a more intimate glow.

Get giggly over plates of branzino and glasses of Chenin Blanc at Kensington Market's subtle wine bar. The phenomenal plating alone will be enough to kickstart the conversation.

Settle in to this homey gastropub in Little India inspired by cottage life with a glass of wine and tasty plates. There are 24 rotating taps so bonding over beer is inevitable.

A suave date night looks like a plate of housemade pasta at this breezy restaurant in Leslieville. Split an oozy burrata for the appetizer and hover over a decadent chocolate cake for dessert.


Edulis Restaurant

This unassuming date night spot on Niagara Street has been converting couples into regulars for nearly a decade. Make reservations for their 5- or 7-course set meals served by a husband-and-wife team.

Tuck into one of several intimate nooks at Little Italy's Venetian hideout. It's a low-lit paradise of cheese, bread and handmade pasta—you can’t possibly go wrong.

There's nothing more romantic than a bonfire, even better if it's used for cooking. This romantic fave near Ossington and Dupont will cook some dishes right before your eyes if you choose to sit on their cozy patio.

This oyster bar with a secret room in the Entertainment District is the stuff date fantasies are made of with an elegantly plated menu and fancy drinks.

Dundas West has a groovy place for plates of Italian and good wine. Dress in your retro best and grab an oxtail pappardelle for the table, you won’t regret it.
