It is an old-fashioned neighbourhood where everyday shopping, schools, and parks are all in walking distance. Shopkeepers remember both your name and your favourites too, helping Corso Italia still feel like a village within a big city. This very livable midtown neighbourhood also provides quick access to St. Clair West Station and the rest of Toronto via the right-of-way streetcar line.  

Location

Architecturally, Corso Italia real estate features post-war, well-built traditional homes, more and more of which have recently been updated. It was declared as having one of Toronto’s fastest rising property values byToronto Life in 2015 and has become a sought-after location to both buy and rent in Toronto.

Corso Italia, Toronto earned its namesake from decades of being a Toronto neighbourhood inhabited by many descendants of Italian immigrants. For years, the amenities, shops, cafés, and markets were predominately owned and operated by Italians. Over time, many other cultures have come to call Corso Italia real estate home, including Mexican, Latin American, Brazilian, Portuguese, and West Indian. 

One can shop high-end upscale stores such as Christian Boutique featuring the likes of Anna Sui and Roberto Cavalli, or funky boutiques. It’s no wonder the area is now home to a new Starbucks right at the corner of Dufferin and St. Clair Gardens. 

There are still many long-time favourites to choose from, including Tre Mari, with 51 years of serving fresh breads, beautiful cakes, and numerous delectables, including their own pasta sauce, bottled for your enjoyment at home! 

La Paloma, established in 1967, has over 75 handmade gelato flavours and is consistently voted as Toronto’s top gelato shop on BlogTO by its readers. 

Food shops also run the multicultural gamut, including Centro Trattoria & Formaggio, offering imported Italian foods Clair for over 30 years. Tavora features Portuguese favourites and fresh fish while specialty shops such as ChocoSol not only offers dairy-, gluten-, soy-, and nut-free, organic, forest garden, shade-grown cacao sourced directly from horizontal trade relationships with indigenous communities in Southern Mexico, but also hands-on chocolate workshops! 

The Giovanni Caboto rink, pool and Tennis courts are adjacent to the Joseph Piccininni Community Centre offers a huge variety of affordable city proffered courses for all ages – even ballroom dancing. Earlscourt Park is 12.6 hectares big with off-leash areas, a playground and wading pool, soccer fields, a full track, and more.
