3 – Café Diplomatico

Mississauga may possibly become home to Cafe Diplomatico Restaurant & Pizzeria – a popular Toronto icon located in Little Italy along College St. It’s known to locals as “The Dip” and was one of the first restaurants to build a patio on the College St. strip, helping shape the community’s pedestrian-friendly vibe. Rumour has it that Diplomatico will take over an existing building in Mississauga in Port Credit that will offer a lakefront view along Stavebank Rd. If this is true, Snug Harbour will no longer monopolize Mississauga’s waterfront space and we will finally have another option for waterfront dining in the city. Read more>

2 – Capra’s Kitchen


Look out Mississauga! Chef Massimo Capra and his signature ‘stache and big personality are coming our way. Chef Massimo is finally opening a restaurant called Capra’s Kitchen in his hometown of Mississauga in the former Villa La Bella space along Lakeshore Rd. in the Clarkson neighbourhood. Chef Massimo is an accomplished celebrity chef, TV personality, author and Saugaboy who has an extensive resume. Starting from the ground up, his career began when he first started toiling in kitchens in Italy. He made his way to Toronto in the early 80s and worked in a few notable fine dining establishments in the city. His plans are to completely renovate the space with an estimated opening date sometime in the summer under the new name Capra’s Kitchen. It will be a brand new restaurant concept with a brand new menu offering lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.
