Italian cuisine

Ontario-based subscription service offers authentic Italian cuisine

The culinary team behind Toronto’s Terroni, Sud Forno and Spaccio restaurants have launched a new ready-to-cook Italian food delivery service.

PORTA is Ontario’s premier Italian meal subscription service, bringing traditional cuisine right to your doorstep.

“As restaurants were closed during the pandemic, we learned a lot about our customers’ desire to replicate parts of the dining experience in their own homes,” said Cosimo Mammoliti, one of PORTA’s founding partners. .

“Even though they couldn’t visit us in our restaurants, they still wanted restaurant quality Italian food made with real ingredients. So I challenged our chefs to start thinking about how we could bring restaurant quality Italian food at more tables across the country.

When the subscription service launches, PORTA will offer eight pasta dishes, eight pizzas and four desserts.

A Roman-style pizza dough called Stirata is used, which leaves a light, crispy finish.

“PORTA offers something that doesn’t exist on the market today – an elevated dining experience that saves people time, effort and the dreaded cleanup,” said Jason Cassidy, founding CEO of PORTA.

Each menu item is freshly prepared by chefs before being frozen to capture and protect flavors. Ontarians can choose from three delivery options: weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.

Subscribers can change delivery frequency, skip a week, or cancel at any time. Pizzas are priced at $11.99, two-serving pastas at $18.99 and four-serving desserts at $13.99.

Customers can subscribe to this service through their official website.
