Rus­tica, one of the 905’s new­est Ital­ian eater­ies, cel­e­brated their grand open­ing on Oct. 3 with more than 500 cu­ri­ous food­ies stop­ping by. This clas­sic Ital­ian restau­rant is a new go-to for break­fast, lunch and din­ner, with mid-range prices for all three. The 150-seat restau­rant also fea­tures an ex­ten­sive yet in­ex­pen­sive wine menu and com­bines au­then­tic­ity and moder­nity (126 Tower Hill Rd., 905-770-0101). Got a sweet tooth?

Cup­cakes A La Carte has re­cently opened a kiosk at Cen­ter­point Mall. The small GTA chain fea­tures lo­cally baked cup­cakes, de­liv­ered fresh to their stores ev­ery day. They spe­cial­ize in cake pops, mac­arons and other scrumptiou­s treats for in­di­vid­ual snack pur­chases or buy­ing in bulk for a party. Want to know some­thing re­ally sweet? Not only do they carry more than two dozen flavours of cup­cakes, they also carry ve­gan cup­cakes (6464 Yonge St., 416-806-6917). The Prom­e­nade Shop­ping Cen­tre wel­comes Fer­rone, a lux­ury

San­dro women’s re­tailer that brings the in­spired style of Europe to the 905. San­dro’s first lo­ca­tion is a favourite in North York’s Bayview Vil­lage Shop­ping Cen­tre and brings in made-in-Italy fash­ions from San­dro Fer­rone ev­ery four to six weeks. They de­scribe their style as “busi­ness woman with an edge,” but try to cater to all styles (1 Prom­e­nade Cir., 905-597-1827). Can’t get enough Ital­ian food?

Tram­busto in Thorn­hill is gar­ner­ing rave re­views for its Ro­mano pizza and pasta. With mid-range prices and a fam­ily-friendly at­mos­phere, Tram­busto is a fast, ca­sual con­cept — though ev­ery­thing is still made from scratch with a ro­man­tic open kitchen. Sev­eral more lo­ca­tions are soon to come, across the GTA (9001 Duf­ferin St., 905553-6400).
