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 Air Canada Centre and Maple Leaf Square. In addition to its dinner menu, Aria offers a full lunch menu and a separate menu for the bar area 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 ACC, or special night out.
I love going here! It is a beautiful restaurant that never seems busy or loud. It is actually very tranquil. The decor is absolutely stunning. The food is amazing as well. Everything I have had there has been delicious. Service is good, wine selection is good. During the day it is very bright and you can people-watch everyone running to union station.
Upon entering Aria my family felt recharged in the clean, comfortable and charming atmosphere of the restaurant. There is a vibrant energy that radiates throughout the restaurant – it’s more than a meal, it’s an experience. Staff is very friendly and attentive. We had a great time whenever we come to Aria.
Food soooo good. Made last minute reservations. Couldn’t seat us right away so sat at bar then was move to other area to accommodate a group. They gave us complimentary appetizers….soooo delish. And it was busy but less noisy than the other 4 restaurants we tried to get into but had wait lists. Did I mention the food was delish! Would go again and it is very close to union for out of town guests who don’t do the sports bar or pick up lounge.
