This is some seriously thick, filling pizza. The cheese, the meat, the crust … it’s a lot to take in at once. Pizza sauce and dough are made in-house at this Commercial St. shop, where people seem to stumble upon it. Service is very friendly and prompt. I wasn’t sure what to expect from Luigi’s but I will say if you enjoy meat lovers’ pizza then Luigi’s is right up your alley.

The dress code is casual, however, the food is anything but. The amazing Gnocchi is braised for 12 hours. While you’re there, try the Paradiso Burger, which tastes Incredible (hold up, grammar nerds — that’s an intentional capital ‘I’). Seasoned meat – a great combination of Angus beef and chorizo sausage – is unbelievably satisfying. The house-made patty is flavoured and tastes incredible as-is. One bite in, and I’m in burger paradise. This thick patty is topped with smoked cheddar, house-made ketchup and sweet pickles, smoked honey dijon mustard, then served with herb roasted mini red potatoes. Impressing Oakville diners for 20 years (there’s also a Burlington location on Pine St.) you’ve gotta make a reservation and get your burger on!
Fusion is the future! While the art of a traditional meal is always sought after, the way the pallet reacts to a foreign yet familiar taste is truly something to behold. The cuisine at the Raging Olive inspires these types of flavours. While Mediterranean cuisine takes front and centre stage on the menu, options like jerk chicken and tandoori salmon make one question how some of the Mediterranean cuisine would be here; fear not! The food here comes to the table a bit slow, but once it arrives you will understand that old saying, ‘good things take time’. Their calamari is grilled to perfection and their mixed grill is a beautiful variety of well cooked meats and fluffy rice, all paired with house made garlic sauce and onion chutney that mixes up the traditional Greek flavours you were originally expecting. Give this cozy resto a try one day if you’re ready for something a little bit different.
The menu is curated and the offerings are fabulous. This cute little downtown Oakville spot opened its doors in October 2016 and is an under-the-radar dining experience when it comes to great Sicilian fare. If you’ve never been, start with the fried artichokes (incredible!) and order the steak (equally fabulous but keep in mind it’s not offered daily since the meat selection is changed up). We also dig the fabulously fabulous burrata-tomato salad! The resto is casual yet authentic, kid-friendly and – more importantly – offers a solid wine list, plus cocktails and beer. Service is very friendly. You must go.
Just pick a platter, any platter! With 7 different platters to choose from, the options are very promising. Prices are set for one or for two, but each platter is an absolute mountain of perfectly cooked food! Use the picture below as a bit of a map to mentally prepare how you’ll attack this meal when it arrives in front of you. If not, you may find yourself overwhelmed and confused as to what you should eat next; it’s a great problem to have! You may not be able to tell, but there is rice below the mountain of meats, and long with the potatoes, you’ll be quite sure to have your fill here. The grilled octopus is also a thing of beauty if you need a seafood fix. With its large array of options, quantity, quality, and pleasant open atmosphere (private rooms for functions available), Sotiris is definitely one of the best Greek restaurants in Burlington!
