The vision for Tappo was a collaboration of two old friends (Armando Russo and NHL’er Shayne Corson) who have shared a friendship lasting over 25 years. The dream of opening a restaurant was always a hot topic over their years, and has now come to fruition. Opening up a small but vibrant restaurant in a fairly unknown area in Toronto called the Historic Distillery District, once owned by Gooderham and Warts, Tappo would be the name they settled on. It means ‘corked’ in Italian. They would focus on bringing in some of the finest consignment wines, making their guests feel at home when they walked in and wowed them with traditional Italian fare. Since the doors opened, Tappo has become not only the place to be in the Distillery, but a place to be seen.
