5) Food Fight Barbecue Bar

From pork spare ribs and beef brisket, to homemade sausages and fried chicken, to spicy mac and cheese and poutine, the brand new casual resto has some indulgent menu items all set for customers. They boast dine-in, take-out, and delivery, so if you want to try their food, you don't even need to leave your house. "We smoke our meat all night over whole chunks of naturally procured wood," says the resto. All of their meat and produce is sourced from Ontario, so you can be glad to know you're eating local. 

4) India's Taste

This gem sits in a plaza at the corner of Mavis and Ray Lawson, and during peak hours, it's packed. If you're going for their buffet on a weekend night, you'll want to arrive early, as spots disappear quickly. As for their butter chicken, India's Taste serves up a standard, classic version of the dish. The ratio of sweet to spicy is decent but leaning more towards spicy, and there are good sized chunks of chicken throughout. What's extra awesome about India's Taste is that their butter chicken is reasonably priced for their quantity and quality - you can get one naan and one serving of butter chicken for about $11.

3) Cantina Fellini Wine Bar

This sophisticated wine bar, located right in Brampton's downtown core near the Rose Theatre, is ideal for dates, special outings and business meetings. It also offers live music on Friday and Saturday nights. The resto, which boasts the talents of executive chef Angelo D, offers French and Italian dishes with memorable flavours and top-notch presentation. The resto is also well known for its house-baked desserts, including tiramisu, creme brulee, torta di limone and more. In terms of entrees, diners can treat themselves to charcuterie, escargot, homemade gnocchi (which is absolutely on point), lamb rack chops and more before shows at the Theatre (or any night just because they want to enjoy something a little nicer). The space also offers generous portions, so prepare to take some food to go. The resto also boasts a refreshing selection of surprisingly affordable wine bottles, including merlots, chiantis, sauvignon blancs and more.

2) La Capannina

La Capannina is a family-run gem that's been operating since the 80s and has more than stood the test of time. The downtown Brampton resto, tucked away on George Street North, offers charming, vintage appeal and a classic menu full of such delicious Italian mainstays as spaghetti bolognese, homemade gnocchi, manicotti and veal parmigiana. It also boasts a few unique offerings, such as oysters rockefeller, mushroom caps stuffed with lobster, shrimps, scallops and hollandaise sauce and a rotating list of decadent specials (the mixed meat and cheese board was a sweet surprise and came with a tender brie and flavourful capicola). The service is informative and attentive and the homemade gnocchi is fall-apart tender, not to mention generously portioned. The manicotti is also incredibly fresh, allowing the diner to taste each ingredient. There's a reason this resto has lasted as long as it has and that reason is fresh, memorable food served by friendly, helpful staff in an inviting atmosphere.

1) That Italian Place

If you want a great artisan sandwich (especially a loaded veal one with all the fixings), this is the place to go. Located just around the corner from Williams Parkway and Torbram, That Italian Place is a very busy spot with an authentic Italian feel. A word of caution when you visit: order early or have time to spare. This absolute gem of a restaurant appeared on The Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here in 2013 and for good reason--every item on the menu looks and tastes authentically delicious. If you’re in the mood for a hearty veal sandwich with all the toppings, you truly shouldn’t look anywhere else. The veal is tender, the mushrooms are filling and flavourful and the hot peppers add a certain wow factor that makes the sandwich complete. If you’re looking to grab lunch, this is the ideal spot.
