Lionels Farm

Reviewed By CAT2012135 - Toronto, Ontario, Canada

A great place for families with young children (likely best for 2-8 yr olds). There is a very small entrance fee of $2/person. You are welcome to bring food for the animals (their website lists safe foods) and the kids will have a great time feeding them. They also do children's birthday parties and have pony rides for $5. A great way to spend time with the kids.

Great Mall with everything you could ever want in a shopping experience. Food court second only to Yorkdale for quality and selection. Arrived at 8.45 only to see most of the spots close to the entrance occupied. Are the employees taking these spots?

A nice modern building at the end of Unionville's historic Main Street. The permanent Varley collection is quite interesting. The special exhibits can vary.... this time it was about communication, which did very little for me. However it is always worthwhile taking the time to look in when in the area.

It is so nice to have a professional theatre venue north of the city WITH PARKING! It's so much easier to navigate this area than downtown Toronto. And it's nice to have big acts come here, yet the atmosphere is cosy and intimate. Beautifully luxurious inside.

Gallucci Winery

Reviewed By Traveliz100 - Markham, Canada

. I have passed this winery many times and was curious to knowmore- checked out the website and found out they serve lunch. The pics on the website are lovely!
Made a reservation as it was advised and took friwnd for lunch.
Beautiful surroundings- you sit outside with a view of the vineyards.
Lunch was great- options included pizza and panini to name a few.
We opted to share a garden salad( good) and then split the apple brie panini( great) and veggie panini( pretty good)
Service was excelellent- when the wine we chose wasn't really to our liking our waitress happily brought us something else( the reds are pretty young- I'd go for a white next time, especially if you like a full bodied red)
We enjoyed a leisurely lunch- no rushing us- and a truly lovely setting.
A good spot for atmosphere and good quality food. Portions are more than decent- come hungry!

For years my family and I enjoyed our summer and fall visits to Whittamore farm. Sadly this is the last year since the farm is closed forever. Over the years, we enjoyed the fresh strawberries, fruits and vegetables grown locally, along with delicious baked goods. Goodbye Whittamore and thank you for the nice memories over the years.
