About Anima Trattoria and Wine Bar
Anima... the Italian word for soul .
Anima Trattoria & Wine Bar was developed by husband and wife team, Renaldo and Angela, with the intention of bringing a little piece of Italy to their Etobicoke neighbourhood. Our aspiration is to provide a place where diners can feed their soul while sipping wine. Inspired by the many trattorie across Italy, we strive to provide an upscale dining experience in a casual and cozy setting.
Reflecting the values of fresh and local, which is central to Italian cuisine, Chef Renaldo places a strong emphasis on using the finest ingredients in his cooking, supporting local businesses wherever possible. Each item on Anima’s menu is meant to pair perfectly with one of our versatile wines, which have been carefully selected to reflect Italy’s diverse regions and geography.
The result: Italian soul food at its best.

Anima Trattoria and Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
Great food, great service and great prices. They have an amazing wine selection and offer wine sampler flights. This is one of the better Italian restaurants in the neighbourhood. We will definitely be back.
We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Anima.
What appealed most was the menu, which had some unusual dishes . Compared to most Italian restaurants, pasta was not the dominant menu category, and that just made it more interesting for us.
We'll definitely be back! The smoked olives are wonderful...we would definitely buy them if they offered for retail sale. Food and wine were outstanding. We had the suggested pairing for the Sambuca prawns appetizer and shared a bottle of Tuscan Donatella Rosso for our mains. Branzino with mushroom risotto was perfection. Veal Marsala was delicious. Everything was just wonderful. Nice addition to the neighbourhood.
The food and drink were phenomenal. I really enjoyed the in-house made warm olives. Never had anything like them. Also the bacon relish - wow! The arancini were delicate and tender - a great different take on a classic. We also had a charcuteri board and the braised beef pasta. The fresh pasta and sauce were amazing. The only thing I would like to see are more choices of flights of wine. I had the red flight - but wasn't crazy about one of the choices. Other than that - I will definitely go back to try the rest of the menu!
