Expert review of Utopia

A Slice of Tex-Mex in Little Italy.

Burritos and burger rule at this cafe in the midst of the red, white and green of Little Italy. There's something of a slacker-surfer vibe, more so on the toasty patio out back. Decent sized portions and well priced drinks make this a good go-to spot when you want a change from pasta and pizza.

Food and drink: 

Sandwiches (in the North American sense of the word, burgers if you're from the right hand side of the Atlantic), salads, burritos, quesadillas — all served with Costa Rican rice and black beans and sesame coleslaw.

Recommended dishes: 

Steak burritos are a winning option here.

Ambience: 

It's cosy and compact and full of everyone from tattooed skateboarder types to polished young professionals on first dates.

Service: 

Smiley and swift.

Location: 

The heart of Little Italy, right on the College streetcar line.

Price advice: 

Most dishes weight in under the $10 mark.

Tables to book: 

The patio, if the weather obliges.
