Aria Ristorante offers genuine Italian fine dining in a contemporary urban setting.

Aria’s name meaning is defined as a long, accompanied song for a solo voice, typically one in an opera. We kept this in mind when initiating the atmosphere. We serve Italian food that is authentic and our selections are parallel to the food, culture and atmosphere of the country of Italy. Italian cuisine has developed through centuries of social and political changes, with roots as far back as the 4th century BC! Just like the cuisine of Italy is noted for its regional diversity with an abundance of difference in taste we also serve a variety of authentic cuisine from delicious Italian pizza and scrumptious spaghetti in accordance to the varying geographical conditions of the twenty regions of Italy.

Being mindful of the strength of Italy’s local traditions we have a wide range of dishes paired with a variety of wines to tantalize your tastebuds. Our authentic Italian food is something that you will definitely keep coming back for as it may even take you away to the beautiful country of Italy! Italian cuisine has influenced food culture around the world and is viewed as a form of art by many.

We at Aria Restaurant also believe that food sustains a great culture, so come try our Italian flavours embedded with Toronto’s astonishing views.

Aria is owned by Guido Saldini and Elena Morelli the proprietors of Noce Restaurant, which for more than 20 years has helped set the standard for authentic Italian cuisine in Toronto.

“Aria” means “air” in Italian but also references the most Italian of art forms – opera. Both these themes are evident inside Aria which boasts a dramatic 35 foot ceiling and is situated adjacent to the Scotiabank Arena and Maple Leaf Square. Aria offers a full lunch menu and a dinner menu along with best Italian wines of Toronto. Aria has dining capacity for 130 people and can accommodate private parties in a variety of formats.

Let Aria infuse some authentic Italian cuisine, design and culture in to your business lunch, drinks after work, game or concert at the Scotiabank Arena, or special night out.
