Next Stop Taste: A Taste of Italy in Windsor

The below blog was written prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, and is designed to be used as inspiration for a future trip to Windsor Essex. Due to current circumstances, some of the locations listed in the blog may currently not be open, or may not be offering full services at this time.

Please contact any business prior to planning a visit.

From fresh baked Italian bread to Windsor-style Pizza & plated upscale Italian cuisine, the one constant that runs through each of these local delicacies is tradition.  And each one is likely paired with a glass of home made wine.

The Next Stop Taste video series will point you towards local flavours that will delight your taste buds!

Mancini’s Italia Bakery customers can’t wait to break off a piece of their famous crusty bread, made from scratch and on site daily.  However you won’t see their breads, cookies, pastries or traditional Italian cuisine last on the shelves here so there is always something fresh to choose from when you visit.

It is well know that pizza has deep roots in Windsor  – and once you taste a slice, you’ll understand why. Armando’s Pizza is proud to be a part of the community which is evident in their classic Windsor-style pizza featuring shredded pepperoni, canned mushrooms, and mozzarella from the locally made Galati Cheese Company.

Is your mouth watering yet?

Located in the heart of Little Italy, Mezzo Ristorante & Lounge offers a wide variety of delicious meals in a cool, modern setting.  Going beyond the traditional Italian fare and paired with exceptional service, Mezzo also offers an extensive beverage menu highlighting locally produced wines, craft brews and distilled spirits which is sure to enhance every guest’s experience.

As many in this area will tell you, nothing goes better with Italian fare than a glass (or two) of wine.  Grown out of years of tradition, Borelli Wines is a family business steeped in wine making tradition  offering over 30 varietals of all-natural grape juices for customers to produce and bottle for their own enjoyment.

Enjoy this Taste of Italy in Windsor and make your Next Stop a stroll through beautiful Via Italia!
