Trattoria Nervosa is chic casual authentic Italian restaurant in Yorkville, Toronto. It neighbours several trendy boutique shops like Anthropologie, Pink Tartan which also carries WANT Les Essentiels and Uncle Otis Clothing. The restaurant itself has two floors with a beautiful patio space upstairs and on the street level. I love the upstairs dining room space. It is very cozy.
Nervosa Toronto is like a breath of fresh air compared to Buca on Kings West. The service at Nervosa is friendly and attentive. And let's not forget how amazing the food actually tastes!
We came here for lunch before we started our day shopping in downtown Toronto. Everything on the menu sounded amazing. We optioned to share three dishes. We always like to share food to sample more variety and because we are greedy. Eating one dish alone never seems right.
Caprese Invernale 15.99: buffalo mozzarella, roasted heirloom tomatoes, chestnut and pine-nut pesto, baby kale, arugula, black olive gravel balsamic reduction, drizzle with Nervosa organic olive oil. Fresh.
Prosciutto e Rucola Pizze 17.99: Tomato sauce based pizza topped with fresh mozzarella, San Daniele prosciutto arugula, shaved parmigiano.
Mafalde ai Funghi 18.49: A medley of mushroom spores - portobello, oyster mushrooms, porcini mushrooms, crimini mushrooms parmigiano, and truffle paste in a light cream sauce. What is amazing about this pasta is it not overwhelmingly rich. The truffle paste is not over-powering and you can still taste the differences in all the mushrooms.
It is probably one of the best funghi mushroom pasta I've had in a very long time. The delicious mushroom sauce simply hugged the curly nature of the perfectly cooked al dente Mafalde ribbon pasta.
There's a reason why every time we come to Toronto, we always come visit Nervosa. Come before noon during the weekdays to ensure a good seat. The lunch crowd can get quite busy.
Nervosa Trattoria, always a pleasure!
