Transcript

The last restaurant I went to was an Italian restaurant on College Street here in Toronto.

It was amazing, the food was, they make all their pasta fresh in house, all of their sauces, we had wine with dinner.

I specifically had the gnocchi, which was amazing!

And for appetizers we had arancini balls, which are deep-fried, almost cheese balls with tomato sauce, it was amazing, a cucumber salad.

And I went with my boyfriend, Andrew, we were on a date, and he was the one who paid for the meal, so that was really nice of him.
