Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Mississauga for the week of  Feb. 9-15, based on the number of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on insauga.com.

5) Piatto Bistro

Piatto is a long-standing Sauga gem that’s been loyally serving diners since 1989. A fine dining resto on the ground floor of an old-style house-turned-spa at the corner of Dundas and Mississauga Road, the resto boasts an old school but lively vibe and is always full of regulars. The service is attentive and accommodating—something that keeps loyal diners coming back for more on special occasions. The menu reflects Chef Abramo Tonelli's classical Italian cuisine, blended with a touch of French. Born in Argentina and of Italian descent, his daily blackboard specials are abundant in seafood options and other well-crafted selections.


4) Sansotei

It looks like Mississauga’s once spartan ramen scene is exploding. Recently, Sansotei Ramen opened its doors in Square One--making City Centre a new mecca for ramen. Sansotei, which currently operates locations in Toronto, North York, Markham, Ottawa and Richmond Hill, is known for both the long lineups it tends to generate and its small but satisfying menu. Some soups on the menu include tonkotsu ramen, tonkotsu black ramen, miso black ramen, shoyu ramen, spicy tan tan ramen, and tomato ramen. According to Sansotei’s website, the resto’s ramen broth is freshly made every day with pork bone. Diners can also choose thick or thin noodles and add extra toppings (think chashu, eggs, mushrooms, green onion and more) for an additional charge.


3) Laari Adda

Laari Adda, an Indian and Pakistani street food restaurant, recently took shape in the old Bistro Narra location in the Thomas St. and Winston Churchill area and it's serving up some very fine South Asian cuisine. The restaurant, which is open late, offers dine-in, takeout and catering service. It also offers a bright and colourful interior that draws upon the vibrant decor frequently encountered in India and Pakistan. As far as food goes, restaurant operators say that “Laari Addas in Pakistan are famous for delicious street food and that is exactly what we are bringing back with a modern twist.” The resto also offers delicious food, great service and exceptional ambience.


2) Pizzeria Dei Sassi

While the Dixie and Eglinton area can be a slightly tougher one to drive in during high-traffic times, it’s not a section of the city you want to miss when you’re in the mood for good food. The neighbourhood is home to a high-end steakhouse, a long-standing nightclub, a beloved Hakka restaurant and a family-run Italian place called Pizzeria Dei Sassi. Pizzeria Dei Sassi, which boasts a sleek and modern interior, offers a delicious prosciutto panino that’s filled with prosciutto (naturally), pesto, mozzarella and tomatoes. It’s filling, but not too filling—and it’ll more than tide you over until dinner. The rest of the menu is just as good, making the restaurant perfect for a casual lunch or dinner. 


1) The Port House Social Bar & Kitchen

You know how the old saying goes—when one door closes, another one opens. In this case, the closure of long-standing restobar Ten Restaurant + Wine Bar led to the opening of the brand Port House Social Bar and Kitchen. Somewhat recently, the "premium casual" restaurant and lounge opened its doors and offers a fairly extensive wine, cocktail and dine-in menu. In terms of beverages, the resto boasts a healthy cocktail list and a decent assortment of on-tap beer, including Shock Top and Goose Island IPA. As far as wine goes, the offerings are extensive (as they should be). Vino aficionados can sip on Kim Crawford's New Zealand Pinot Noir, Argentine Malbecs, Italian Pinot Grigios and more. As far as food goes, the resto offers calamari, chicken wings, tuna poke wontons, stone-baked pizza, burgers, sandwiches, pasta, and more.
