“Fabulous Veal Sandwiches!😊”

Description: In 1954, on the corner of Clinton and College, nestled away in the heart of Toronto's Little Italy, The Original San Francesco Foods opened its doors.

This is the best place for veal and sweet pepper sandwiches! After being a fan of the original Toronto location, I was happy to discover this one closer to home!
The veal sandwich is my favourite, all though there are many other options from lasagna to panzarotti.
They serve Stella Artois on draft, and popular drinks like Coke and Canada Dry Ginger Ale in old fashioned bottles...Nice!
They have a fresh gelato freezer to enjoy a special dessert after your meal...if you have room for it!
I will be a regular customer for a good many reasons, one being that the staff are wonderful and friendly.
Highly recommended!

Been a few times to this restaurant. It was pretty busy. Again the sandwiches were just incredible. They really take the time and effort to make it perfect. Sauce is wonderful.

Hi notallwaunderslost!

Thank you so much for your honest feedback about your latest visit to our restaurant! Maybe there was some miscommunication with one of our Team Members... we most definitely have Fresh Mozzarella as a topping option on our menu! We hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve you better so that we can earn a 4th and perhaps a 5th star! Cheers, Chris ~ The Original San Francesco Foods Customer Care Team
