ORO is a labour of love for experienced restaurateurs, Connie and Domenico. As long-time owners of the well-known Old Angelo's, which at 75 years, was the oldest Italian restaurant in Toronto, Connie and Domenico embarked on ambitious renovations plans in anticipation of the restaurant's diamond anniversary in 1997.

The project called for a major overhaul of the look and feel of the place, to position the business they purchased in 1983 for the new Millenium. The renovations inside and out meant the demise of Old Angelo's and the birth of ORO.

A sleek marriage of warm, European architectural elements and clean, modern designs, ORO's transformation was matched with innovative menus over the years, and today the culinary team is led by Executive Chef Michael Crockford.

For more than 15 years, ORO's warm hospitality, wonderful service and delectable dishes have garnered high praise from Torontonians and visitors alike, shining a spotlight on Elm Street's "Restaurant Row."

After a short 'hiatus' some might call retirement, you'll find the affable, bearded Domenico at ORO during the day once again, while partner-in-love-and-life Connie takes over during the evening. Their return to ORO, with the same passion and dedication, ensures the restaurant's continued placement on Toronto's A-list of fine dining.

    the closure of the restaurant.
    LAST DAY OF SERVICE IS:
    Dec. 22, 2017, 2 pm.

    To all our patrons and friends, thank you for selecting ORO for your lunches, dinners, and special events over the years!
    It is truly the end of an era, from Gourmet Pique Nique to Bumpkins to Old Angelo's to ORO....the late Domenic and Connie put their hearts and passion into their restaurant careers, and loved every minute of it.
     
    We will miss you, and wish you all the best.

    Hard to believe. One of my true favourites for so many many years. I have had fabulous dinners there - truly memorable. And the outstanding personable caring staff.
