Yolanda's
Italian | Oakville (Ontario)
Reviews coming soon

Yolanda's is a restaurant project created by Morris and Lynn Mercanti, Michael Mercanti and Scott Bailey located in an heritage building from 1840 in the Bronte Harbour.



With the help of Castor Design they have transformed the space into a rustic and charming Italian spuntino house with irresistible food and a warming ambience.



Yolanda's is the name of Morris's mother who immigrated to Canada in 1956. Afternoons and evenings were spent around food and drink for hours on end with spuntino plates always being passed. The food memories from Yolanda's basement are what inspired this project.



Eating your way through our menu will be an exhilarating experience. Chef Scott Bailey has created a modern take on classic Italian plates. Our wine director Cassandra Mosher has put together a private label list from various regions in Italy that are not available in the LCBO.
