The Top Fine Dining Spots for Pasta and Pizza Lovers

Brantford has no shortage of good eats. Our city is also home to some fine dining spots that are well-known for their delicious pizza and pasta options. Enjoy dine-in service or takeout from one of these great local restaurants.

Al Dente | 250 King George Rd., Brantford, ON

Serving customers in Brantford for 33 years, Al Dente is known for their fresh house-made bread and pastas as well as their own signature sauces and dressings. Their natural shade patio is a breath of fresh air for enjoying your favourite beverage or for sampling their large selection of craft beer. Offering dine-in, pick-up, or delivery, treat yourself to an Al Dente thin crust pizza for dinner tonight. The grilled-vegetable & goat cheese or buffalo chicken pizzas are as good as they sound. Don’t forget the dessert! They make their own cheesecake and carrot cake from scratch. Visit for more information. 

Gran Sasso Ristorante | 98 Paris Rd., Brantford, ON

While perusing the menu at Gran Sasso Ristorante, you will immerse yourself in names of the founding family and the towns surrounding the Gran Sasso mountain in the region of Abruzzo, Italy. An appetizer like the Artichoke Crustini is a great dish for sharing before ordering your favourite pasta entrée, including Villa Zutti, Norina, and San Gabrielle. Intrigued? Visit for their full menu and descriptions that demonstrate their love for family and passion for food.

Speekezzies Café & Wine Bar | 415 Fairview Dr., Brantford, ON
