Award wining Italian restaurant Mississauga - Il Porcellino
Mississauga restaurant has been recognized for beings tops in Italian food. During a gala at Toronto's Atlantis Pavillions earlier this month, Il Porcellino Italian Restaurant received the Top Choice Award (TCA), handed out by the organization of the same name. Il Porcellino Italian Restaurant won in the Italian restaurant category, based on online voting on the TCA website.
Chef Antonio Tucci said the award comes just as they are celebrating their 10th anniversary at the Davand Dr. location. The restaurant originally opened in the Lakeshore and Dixie Rd. area, but moved to the current location in 2001 to better serve its growing catering business. Tucci said he believes they were awarded because they insist on using "only the finest and freshest ingredients available, and make everything in house from scratch." "We still hand roll each meatball before oven baking them to tender perfection," he said, adding that they also treat each client like a guest entering their own home. "We are a true family business." More than 40 businesses in Mississauga were recognized by TCA. TCA conducts polls in major cities to help identify and promote businesses and professionals who have risen above their competition.
