Osteria Du

Is there anything more synonymous with an elegant, fine dining experience than Italian cuisine? We didn’t think so. Until Osteria Du came along, vegans in Toronto would have to scour the menu at an Italian eatery for something that meets their food preferences. Fortunately, that’s no longer the case.

Osteria Du offers purely plant-based Italian-inspired dishes that will have you delighting in every sumptuous, Italian-inspired bite.
