Corso Italia is Toronto's central area for exhulurating, unique Italian culture in our great city, literally just minutes from downtown, located on St. Clair West Avenue. With the development of two major housing communiites around Keele and St Clair Ave West, this area has transformed itself into a little new housing development community in under 10 years.
For over forty years maybe even 50, St Clair Avenue West has featured only the best owner-operated Italian store fronts whose owners import only the latest in European fashion, even bridal wear, yes house wares and of course fine food products that you can not buy anywhere else. Folks this is literally authentic Italian culture and Italian heritage in the heart of Toronto.
Known for its continual celebration of the Italian Culture (and others), this area holds an annual Fiesta street party as one of the largest gatherings in Ontario of soccer fans during all World Cup and European Cup football matches. Let me tell you at this time, this is the part of Toronto you want to be in.
So take a drive on St Clair and experience the warmth, sincere hospitality and eluding vitality of a prodominently Italian community where the very heart of European culture remains alive.
