IT STARTED IN ABRUZZO & NOW IT'S BACK TO ABRUZZO
La Cascina Ristorante was born in Manoppello, Abruzzo, Italy. After running a successful restaurant in Central Italy creator and Chef, Luca Del Rosso alongside his partner, Sharifa Jordan moved the concept to Woodbridge, Ontario (2007-2009) and to Toronto from 2010-2017.
The philosophy at La Cascina Ristorante was to replicate an authentic Abruzzese dining experience based on the Italian concept of Agriturismo (slow food). The menu changed daily offering the freshness and diversity you would find in Italy.
La Cascina Ristorante started a food movement in Toronto geared to the Italian foodie who appreciated the delivery and education of simple, yet authentic Central Italian dining.
La Cascina Ristorante served its "last supper" at 1552 Avenue Road on February 25, 2017 however, the promise to bring Toronto authentic casereccio food and vino will not stop here. The journey continues and the new destination is back in Abruzzo.
