Pretty much nothing goes together better than pizza and the game at the end of a long day, and this casual Little Italy hangout is just the place to get it. There are lots of nooks to wedge yourself into with a small group to hunker down and watch.

Chicken wings are basically the official snack of sports bars, and this Bloorcourt stalwart has them in spades. Dim lighting, a lively atmosphere and the game on TVs make this a fun atmosphere for viewing sports games.
