Ascari never disappoints food and wine always delicious amazing service and the cosiest ambiance .
Always great food, service and ambience. Looking forward to next visit!
Great date spot; fairly expensive; portions were modest; taste was amazing; service was great (thank you Patrick!)
Everything was great. Only negative I could point to is there was some sediment in our frist two glasses of wine
We had a quiet dinner for 2 on October 20th at 5pm. The service was amazing and so was the food. :)
Dined here on Tuesday evening. This is probably the 4th or 5th time we have visited. Continues to hit the mark. Excellent food, great service and nice ambience made for a great evening get together with a friend/business colleague for my partner and I. A thoughtfully curated wine list. Will visit again.
Limited menu. Dirty floors and bench cushions. Wine by the glass $13+ for less than 5 oz. Firm with amount of time dinners have.
Very good food!
I hesitated with the title special occasion. Largely due to the fact that the food is so delicious I would like to eat here every day. My husband and I had a spectacular meal with delicious wines In a perfect atmosphere. I love seeing the open kitchen and watching chef work so hard to make such wonderful food for his guests. Do yourselves a favor and book a table as soon as possible.
Had a lovely time at the bar! Was served by Peter who is the best, most professional bartender in the city. Also a genuinely kind and engaging person. We ate a lot! Love the new iteration of the arancini with tomato sauce, the carpaccio with honey mushrooms was delightful, and the gnocchi was a welcomed dish to bring on the fall. Noise is always a little high but it was nice to feel a vibrant restaurant after so many lockdowns. Genuinely had such a wonderful time thanks to the Ascari team! Will be a lifetime guest.
The carbonara was one of the best I had. We sat on the patio and it was so lovely. Tables spaced apart well and service was amazing. Also don’t forget to get the tiramisu as this was to die for.
Always the best pasta in Leslieville
Always love Acari! Never disappointed! Best carbonara ever
My wife and I had an early meal as we were heading to a piano concert around 7. We had an absolutely lively meal and overall an incredible time. The servers were attentive but didn’t hover. They were knowledgeable and very friendly. The drinks had some nice takes on forgotten classics and interesting house originals. The meal was superb. The starters were great shareable options with subtle flavours and the pasta mains were rich and filling. We will definitely come back next time we are in the east end.
Food was so delicious- had the Brussel sprouts, the peach salad and the carbonara pasta. Service was great from start to finish. Highly recommend!
Ascari on Queen West is the perfect spot for an intimate dinner, either with friends or someone more romantically inclined. The staff is great but they know when to leave you alone. Our server recommended a great bottle of wine and the food is fantastic.
Amazing pasta. Good wine list. Great service. Love this place.
Great food. On the pricey side. Very good service. The room temperature was very cool because of the kitchen being close by. The blower was alternated which was appreciated.
Food, service and ambience is anyways amazing.
If you want an incredible meal, ascari is your place.
Live this place
Birthday. Great food and service
Top of mind. COVID Protocols WELL maintained, executed and enforced! Food was delicious (esp. Carpaccio and Gnocchi) nice selections of wines (bottle and by the glass) as well as cocktails and beer list. Staff was outstanding. Consistently high rated resto for a reason. Go visit.
Excellent food, excellent service, excellent wine list. Definitely a great place to go.
Delicious, carefully conceived food; Exemplary, friendly and knowledgeable service; Interesting, diverse wine selection and lovely twinkly outdoor patio space. A beautiful experience.
Its been a long time since we have dined at this long time favourite. It was better than ever, every dish was beautifully presented and delicious. I had the Carbonara and my partner had the Agnolotti with Pea Purée. Both were of the scare delicious. Can’t wait to go back again!
Food was delicious. Staff weren’t particularly welcoming and it was expensive for pasta.
Fresh and tasty pasta carbonara and squid ensalata and cheese platter. Service can be a bit slow (eg bread came long after our cheese platter)
We were at Ascari for our daughter’s birthday. It was a lovely evening! The food was outstanding (especially the yummy appetizers) and our server Angela was great! We will be back.
Food was very good. Pasta and apps only on the menu. No meat options for entrees - my Carbonara was a little salty but serving size is perfect. Arancini and Buratta apps were delicious.
Perfect! Fast efficient service and great food.
Ascari is one of my favourite spots in the city! The food is always fresh and delicious, and there's always something new on the menu to try. The staff is very friendly and the service is fantastic.
We were recommended to go here for a great Italian meal. Food was perfection with a great wine selection also. Their outdoor area was beautiful and had a very chill atmosphere. They were busy so I would say to make a reservation over just trying to show up for a table.
Service was attentive, friendly and top notch. Would definitely recommend here for a great meal as a couple of with friends.
My husband and I have being going to Lesileville location for years and it has never disappointed us. Love this gem!
Service, ambience were good. I am not sure if there has been a change in chef recently, but the food was waaaay too salty. I was there in the spring and absolutely loved it, so we went back but it was kindda disappointing.
Waiter was rude
Questionnaire to enter was a bit much
Overall the quality of the experience was very poor compared to previous visits.
$12 for eight pieces of plain focaccia is a little much. Generally overpriced. “Lobster” pasta had no lobster and the pasta was over cooked and took too long to arrive. Deserts were great (not overly sweet).
Good and service were amazing- a special shout out to Matt who looked after us so well
I think this was the best date either of us have ever been on. The service was outstanding and our server recommended a beautiful bottle that paired nicely with both of our delicious meals. We will absolutely be back!
All was great, from the meal to the service. The lightning show was an added bonus. Highly recommend!
