Ufficio Restaurant, Toronto

Ufficio is a seafood centered/vegetarian Italian resto. There is no meat or fowl on the menu. The cooking is very creative and exceptionally well executed.

Fire grilled toast lightly brushed with olive oil. Delicious!

Salted cod croquettes with salsa rosa, a rich tomato based sauce.

Lightly fried zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta accompanied zucchini slices and all dusted with shaved parmigiano-reggiano. 

Tuna crudo: olive oil poached  albacore tuna with celery, blood orange and seabuckthorn vinaigrette. An interesting and refreshing combination of flavours. 

A delicious salad of figs, char-grilled radicchio, castelfranco radicchio (the lighter leaf), orange, ricotta cheese and black walnuts. This range of flavours in this salad were memorable,

Oven roasted sea bream with cannellini beans and escarole ragu, cucumber and fennel.

An exceptionally good pasta dish: very delicate porcini agnolotti with perfectly cooked porcini mushrooms, truffle oil and shaved parmigiano-reggiano.

Torta della nonna: soft shortcrust pastry with an abundance of thick Italian custard, garnished with pine nuts and icing sugar.
