Bello Bio is a very casual place where they sell some grocery items too. The menu is written on a whiteboard near the kitchen and they bring the food out to you. The risotto ball was amazing and the eggplant parmigiana was very good too.

Sort of like vegan Italian home cooking. It's the food my mom would make if she were vegan - and I love my mom's food!

My favourites are the eggplant parmigiana and the tiramisu'. I also love the rice-based mozzarella they use in some of their dishes and also sell in the store part.

The owners are warm and friendly too :-)

What a little gem. I have absolutely no negative things to say about these fine folks; upon entering you are greeted warmly and if you peruse their grocery items, (Lisa?) will come explain their products with a wealth of knowledge and explain how to prepare etc. (Mauro?) came out from behind the kitchen a few times to even elaborate - such sweet, generous people.

Samples! Samples samples samples. I got to sample the tiramisu; yum! Their varieties of brown rice vegan cheese from Italy; wow! and of course their seitan roast... mmmmm.... and everything else looks magical.

Store is clean, fresh, there is seating for people who want to eat in; coffee, desserts... it's a small place so don't come expecting a full blown restaurant; half is grocery, half is food in display cases.

If it were closer, I would be there almost every day but I am sure for those in the neighbourhood, Bello Bio will become a routine grocery or dinner stop.

Pros: Owners are wonderful, Clean and tidy, Great, unique selection
Cons: Expect to pay more for quality products, (duh)
