The Best Spots to Pick Up Homemade Pasta and Sauce

It may be sometime before we are able to dine in some of Toronto's revered Italian restaurants again. Toronto is one of those cities that is lucky enough to have such a wide selection of delicious, authentic Italian food dispersed in almost every neighbourhood and serving up dishes from every region of Italy. Eating meals carefully curated and prepared by some of the world's finest chefs is a luxury that Torontonians can no longer afford because of temporary and permanent restaurant closures.

Businesses that can afford to do so, are offering pick up and delivery options for people to dine at home. While some Italian restaurants already had a retail selection for customers, other restaurant owners are having to get creative and come up with ways to make pasta and sauces that can be packed and safely picked up or transported to consumers. We have compiled a short list of places in Toronto that are offering authentic and freshly made pastas, sauces and other ingredients such as cheeses, salad dressings or preserved vegetables to be enjoyed at home.

Now, more than ever, the world is aware of suffering that is going on in places like Italy and we are doing our best to try and support each other. There are numerous ways to help locally, including donating to restaurants at TasteToronto's Toronto Restaurant Workers Crisis Relief Fund.

For now, if you choose takeout or delivery, opt for a local option. If you are craving a taste of Italy, made from the highest quality of ingredients, check out any of the places on this list below.
