Join us on Oct 18 or Oct 19 for dinner with the Bonacini boys!

Chef Michael Bonacini, co-founder of Oliver & Bonacini Hospitality and CTV’s MasterChef Canada judge, and his son, Oscar, will be hosting an exclusive dining event, highlighting their Italian heritage through a delicious four-course dinner!

Dates: Thurs, Oct 18 and Fri, Oct 19
Time: Reservations available from 5-9pm
Cost: $58 (excludes tax & gratuity)
Location: Buffo Ristorante

Chef Michael’s passion for Italian cuisine stems from his father — who was born and raised in the northern Italian region of Emilia-Romagna — and has been carried down through generations. Oscar, who is avidly following in his father’s footsteps, is currently enrolled in culinary school in Toronto, and recently spent his summer working at a café in Italy.

Celebrating the simplicity and generosity of Italian cooking, the evening will be filled with authentic Italian cuisine and the company of our favourite father-son duo.
