Ingredients & supplies
Luisa Silvia learned all about the importance of fresh ingredients while living in Italy and cooking for friends and family.
Italians are honest people, and Silvia’s loved ones were no different. They were the most scrutinizing critics and knew instantly if a food’s freshness, texture, or flavor was at its peak.
At Merlo on Maple, Luisa Silvia has taken her lessons learned in Italy and turned them into exquisite and authentic Italian food. The taste and quality that’s apparent in the first bite is the result of a daily selection of ingredients from various small, experienced suppliers from around the world.
Our suppliers are our partners, and they understand and share our passion. So on any given day, for instance when a fabulous game bird is available or when an unusual fruit is perfectly in season, we will get a call from our supplier and Sylvia will be quickly off to her recipes to see what magic she can create. To experience a meal that is rarely ever available, make sure you ask our staff for the day’s specials. And don’t forget to ask for Sylvia or Giampaolo to pass along your thoughts about the meal. We love to hear from you.
