Il Gatto Nero has been an institution of Toronto, most especially Little Italy on College Street since 1960.
The Gatto or the “Cat” as many have come to call and know it, has been a place where people from all walks of life have come to enjoy the food, atmosphere and of course…the coffee. The owners of Il Gatto Nero, Carmine and Michael Raviele, father and son, have been dedicated to their clients new and old, throughout the years, and continue to treat all who walk through their doors like family. The comfortable, engaging and friendly atmosphere is only rivalled by Carmine and Michael’s ability to make you feel as though you’ve been a fixture in the “Cat” since it’s doors first opened.
No matter who you are or where you’re from, you will feel yourself part of the family once you cross our threshold.
