Don Alfonso 1890’s cuisine is characterized by its modernity, Mediterranean flare and the exceptional quality of the raw materials used.
The space is designed to evoke a sense of elegance and sophistication and acts as a canvas for the food it presents. Every detail, every piece of furniture has been crafted from finest materials, many of which were imported directly from Italy. The centerpiece of the dining room is “Crane” by renowned artist Philippe Pasqua. The one of a kind piece offers a unique juxtaposition to the elegance of its surroundings with a contemporary conversation piece. The interior walls at Don Alfonso 1890 are made complete with two original works by Toronto born artist, Daniel Mazzone.
