We are DOVA

We’re a new dining experience in the heart of Cabbagetown, near Carlton and Parliament Streets. You may recognize our talent from ARDO, our sister establishment in Corktown, but DOVA is an exquisite and new expression of Chef Roberto Marotta’s heritage. Let our kitchen team introduce you to the flavours, textures and traditions of Sicily and the Mediterranean basin, while our front of house provides attentive, friendly and approachable service.

About DOVA


Chef Roberto Marotta has over two decades of experience in restaurants from Europe to North America. In his native Milazzo, a port town on the northeast coast of Sicily, Roberto opened his first restaurant and filled it with familial flavours. After moving to Toronto, he helmed the kitchens at some of the city’s finest Italian establishments—infusing the taste of Sicily’s rich history into each new dish he created. With DOVA, Roberto and partners are exploring Sicilian and Mediterranean flavours through modern techniques and seasonal ingredients.


We pay homage to Sicily’s exciting terroir and culinary traditions—though we traverse other regions in the Mediterranean basin. Handmade artisanal pastas, fresh-caught fish and ethically sourced meats are the foundations for our cuisine. Discover the sights and sounds emblematic of the Tyrrhenian Sea and surrounding regions through our kitchen’s talent and craft.
