I have been going to Camerini ("Cam" as we say in our family) since we needed a highchair or booster seat to be at the table. Every Sunday for dinner the only place we would go was Camerini. This is the best Italian in the city (Toronto). Camerini is a family run, small and intimate Italian restaurant. The food is delicious and the servers (now our friends) are the nicest! You won't break the bank for a nice dinner out and you will be thoroughly satisfied with any choice on the menu. For the longest time the only thing I would ever order was a ceaser salad to start and linguine Alfredo with raspberry tartufo for dessert. However that plain (but always delicious) meal has now changed into a variety of new dishes. I can't stop trying new things - they are all SO good!

My personal favs at Cam are:
- Antipasti plate to start (great olives and marinated vegetables)
- Penne a la vodka (if you have leftovers, it is great warmed up the next day for lunch!)
- Penne with rapini (very similar to broccoli) and sausage in a garlic oil (FABULOUS!)
- Any of the veal dishes are worth trying (they also come with side vegetables and a side pasta. You will be full for sure by the end of the meal!)
- For dessert, raspberry tartufo is still and will always be my favourite!

If you love Italian you MUST give this place a chance. I promise it will become a new staple in your restaurant favourites!
