Over the years, Nella continues to grow and has expanded from its Mississauga head office to now include Nella Panama in Panama City as well as our very own Nella Cucina located in downtown Toronto.

Located in the heart of the Annex, Nella Cucina is a thriving hub for chefs, food industry leaders and an ever-growing population of aspiring home cooks. 

As well as offering the best-of-the-best for your kitchen in our retail space, we also have a state-of-the-art commercial test- kitchen where we host cooking classes.
