A trendy restaurant with two existing locations in Toronto will soon be opening its third location in Oakville.
Piano Piano, a restaurant that takes pride in its Italian cuisine, currently has two locations at 88 Harbour St. and 623 Mount Pleasant Rd.
The new restaurant in Oakville will be located at Thomas St. and Church St., which many residents may remember as the location of Jonathans Restaurant & J Bistro, which closed back in November due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Chef and owner Victor Barry’s wife Nikki Leigh McKean has been posting updates about their new Piano Piano location on social media, including photos of the exterior’s iconic floral mural along with a sneak peek of its interior.
“Opening a restaurant in a pandemic has been a wild ride. Being a restaurant owner in a pandemic has been a wild, exhausting, terrifying time,” said McKean in a heartfelt Instagram post.
“When we opened Splendido to Piano Piano, I was at the end of my first cancer diagnosis,” added McKean, who explained that while it was an extremely difficult time, the world on the outside remained “business as usual.”
“The one thing that remains the same is that we have big ideas, big dreams and we just go for it. We trust. Even when all the odds are against us…we trust,” she said.
Piano Piano’s menu features various selections of pasta, pizza, salads and desserts such as tiramisu.
