The Bar:

Located in the heart of Toronto's historic "Little Italy / Corso Italia" neighbourhood, along St. Clair Avenue West and just west of Dufferin Street, the A.C. Ranch Sports Bar & Caffè is a hidden treasure for those in search of a 'regular' place to call their home-away-from-home. Family owned and operated, A. C. Ranch first opened its doors in 1969 and has been Little Italy / Corso Italia's World Cup soccer headquarters ever since!

Also offering private facilities to host your birthday parties and business functions, there's really no shortage of things to do here. Want to watch your favourite sport on the big screen satellite television? We've got it. Want to head out for a fun night of karaoke? We've got that, too. Throw in the espresso / cappuccino / Americano to go along with your newspaper (or laptop and favourite websites with the free WiFi internet connection) on the weekends and you've got more than enough to keep you busy all week long. A true "local" to many - and really one of the only of its kind in the entire area - the warm family atmosphere and above-standard service keeps everyone coming back for more.

The main bar area is stocked with all that you need, including imported German and Italian beer, wines, and spirits. Located at the front of the bar, there's plenty of seating available and it's a great place to watch the game if you're looking to spend a few hours out and the staff are always willing to keep you busy with conversation as well.

Oh, and did we mention the terrific selection of imports on tap? Krombacker, Paulner and Padavena are just a few of the names you'll find fully stocked and ready to go!

The Dart Area:

Located in the back of the bar, the dart area is completely private and has 4 dartboards with chalkboards and great lighting. As a dart-friendly establishment, chalk and excellent service are always on-hand and it's one of the better dart areas in the city for leagues and friends alike to get together for some matches any night of the week.

The Menu:

Open until 9:00pm on weekends (and 5:00pm on weekdays), the Italian-style kitchen offers various traditional pasta dishes (priced from $5.99 - $7.49), along with cold-cut sandwiches ($4.00), cold-cut platters ($5.99), grilled chicken-breast & salad ($7.49), and more. Come in for a home-cooked dinner or just for a hamburger and fries - it's up to you!

What people have been saying:

"Who would have known that there was a regular bar like this St. Clair and Dufferin?"
"The karaoke was a blast - busy and lots of fun!"
"4 dartboards and great service!"

Public Transit:

The easiest way to find A.C Ranch is to take the Dufferin Bus to St. Clair Avenue West and then to walk west on the north side of St. Clair for about one block. The Dufferin bus runs quite frequently and the approximate travel time from Yonge and Bloor is 30 minutes.

Driving Directions

Take the 401 to Dufferin Street and go south to St. Clair Avenue West and then turn right (west) on St. Clair (or park at the "Green P" just before St. Clair Avenue).


Paid street parking is available on St. Clair Avenue West, but not between the hours of 4:00pm and 6:00pm (rush hour).

There are also two "Green P" parking lots in the immediate area: one is located on Dufferin, just north of St. Clair on the west side, and the other is located one light west of Dufferin Street at Via Italia on the south side of St. Clair Avenue.

The Dart Action:

A. C. Ranch currently is home to two dart teams from the Queen Street Dart League who play each and every Tuesday evening year-round. You can usually find a couple of people playing some friendly darts most any evening and there are usually dart players present who may be easily persuaded to have a match if you need someone to play with.

There is also currently a dart clinic available every Saturday afternoon for beginning and intermediate players who would like to improve their skill, counting ability and strategy for the '01 games and Cricket. Start time is 2:00pm and the cost is $5.00 per player. Everyone is welcome to attend, so come on out and have a great time!
