The Caboto Club is southwestern Ontario’s oldest and largest Italian organization, boasting spacious reception and banquet facilities, a long history of community involvement and charitable donations, and a now-famous restaurant. Founded in 1925 and named for the Italian explorer Giovanni Caboto, the Club still serves its original purpose—to encourage camaraderie among new Italian-Canadian citizens—but it has also become an Essex County landmark, and a meeting-place for the Windsor community at large.
