There couldn’t be a more perfect time to shift gears on our cocktail list. Special thank you and shout out to Sarah Parniak for the mention in Now Magazine. (you know we love you!)
Porzia’s drink list called our “alcohol catalogo” is a constantly changing collection of our house cocktails. Some created in house, some as collaborations, and others commissioned by various Toronto bartenders. We like to look at it as a constant work in progress. Our list changes seasonally, however feel free to inquire about past cocktails. if we have the booze in stock then we can make it for you. Or, if you’re feeling spontaneous then just as the bartender to just go ahead and make whatever they want…. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
This season’s cocktail list has been curated by our alumni Aja Sax inspired by Italian clean and herbal notes while focussing on local spirits and house made amaro. Here’s a peek:

Parkdale’s Porzia, which just celebrated its first anniversary, has an Alcolico Catalogo, or booze catalogue, of rotating house cocktails on offer. If you don’t see your favourite printed among the listed six, you can order it by requesting its number.
Quindici (#15), made from Dillon’s gin, Aperol, bianco vermouth and orange cordial, and the Tre (#3), mixed with vodka, Cointreau, basil and house cordial (both $13), are simple and refreshing – perfect aperitivi for Porzia’s rustic, quirky and awesome food.
Send your compliments to chef Basilio Pesce by buying the kitchen a post-shift round of bourbon shots ($14).

not only do we have a dining floor with 52 seats, but we have a large bar area and 4 seat chef rail providing full service. some people say that these spots are also the best seats in the house – truth is… they’re right. Here’s a tip- ask for a spot at the bar or the chef rail. reserve it… walk in…. wait at it… and hang out with us. Give us a chance to get to know you!!
February is coming to a close and the days are getting longer. I know you love the sunshine!! can’t say I blame you.
