Toronto Little Italy

The name Little Italy might actually be a little bit deceiving as this Toronto neighborhood is not the exclusively Italian quarter one might expect. While the area around College Street became the commercial and residential center of Toronto’s Italian community in the 1920s, many families actually began to move away in the ‘60s and were replaced by other immigrant families mainly from China, Vietnam, Portugal, Spain and Latin America. Today, Little Italy is a very international and multicultural neighborhood that is popular with the young crowd. Although there is still that Italian atmosphere including lots of soccer fans, old Italian Nonnas and some shady Mafioso hangout spots, the name is more a nod to the role the neighborhood has played as the starting point for many Italian immigrant families in Toronto.
