AMANO MEANS HANDMADE
Amano’s restaurants are built on sourcing fresh local ingredients whenever possible, combining them to create fresh ever changing offerings and delivering them with impeccable service and hospitality. We are inspired by our heritage, not defined by it.
We opened our first Amano restaurant ‘Amano Pasta’ in Union Station in 2017 as part of the ongoing Union Station Revitalization project with the goal of bringing an elevated but casual restaurant to Canada’s busiest commuter hub. As an open concept Pasta Bar, Amano Pasta opened to outstanding reviews and quickly made Toronto Life’s 2018 list of Best New Restaurants confirming that a train station could offer so much more than just being a place to wait for a ride home – it could be destination in itself.
Since then, partners Chef Michael Angeloni, Adam Teolis, Yannick Bigourdan and Dan Kennedy have gone on to open the second outpost of the Modern Italian eatery named Amano Kitchen. In a similar fashion, Amano Kitchen found a unique location inside of the new Market & Co development north of Toronto in Newmarket.
