The Old Spaghetti Factory…..The Esplanade, Toronto

Got the chance to head down to The Esplanade during my lunch hour. It was crazy hot but we decided to sit on the patio anyway because it was such a nice day. My favourite Italian dish is lasagna but I’m also a huge sucker for ravioli so I decided to get the Factory Ravioli…
