We love food. We love wine. We love racing. So we named Ascari Enoteca after one of our heroes, 1950's Italian racing legend, Alberto Ascari. He was as famous for his appetite for food and wine as he was for his talent for racing, earning him the nickname "ciccio" – Italian for 'chubby'. Here you'll find homemade pastas made fresh in house every single day, plus a unique wine list.
Ascari has been awarded one of Canada's Neighbourhood Gems by OpenTable and Best Italian Restaurant in Now Magazine. We look forward to hosting you!

Busy on a Monday with half priced bottle of wine. Food is fantastic and the servers are too.
The food was outstanding, well presented and with some unique twists.
The service was rushed , drinks and plates were taken away while their was still a bit left and we were pausing , while in conversation.
The server took away the wine list before we ordered , so we had to ask for it back. Server also came by our table at least 7 times during the meal to see how everything was. I do appreciate attentiveness but this was overkill as they kept interrupting our conversation.
We will return, but being rushed though a meal ( 50minutes) during a special occasion ( birthday dinner) was uncalled fo
This establishment has their act together on so many levels....quality & synergy of ingredients compliment every course. Our go to place whenever we opt to dine out. Highly recommended and with our compliments. MKoM, Toronto
The server and service was exceptional and truly engaging
Great food and excellent wine list. We asked how the pasta carbonara was made as it was so good. The chef came over and personally talked us through the prep. A real star this restaurant should be proud of!!
Amazing food and amazing service. I have no complaints about this place.
Amazing wine, incredible food and awesome service! It’s one of our favourites for date night!
Great food and wine. Music too loud if you are looking for conversation
Wonderful food, would go there again in a minute. Good service and lovely wine selection.
Excellent food and service. We especially loved the Budino di Limone!
There was a new special which I told the server could be tweaked a bit. The lemon juice in the sauce could have been replaced by lemon zest instead, making it less acidic in taste. I also think there is room for improvement in their desserts
I have entertained several friends and clients at Ascari Enoteca and each time those guests leave the experience telling me that they will return. Part of reason for this is that the food is really good, of course, but the other part is the wonderful service from an exceptional staff. The staff is quick, inobtrustive, knowledgeable about food and wine and clearly enjoy life. There are dozens of places to eat and entertain in our great city of Toronto and Ascari is always on my list. Always leave happy.
Amazing time at Ascari! From the food to the atmosphere-- highly recommend!
Thank you so much Jen for your hospitality, also the Chef with curly hair (forgot her name) THANK YOU!!!!!! Wonderful service, great recommendations.
Fantastic food and great service.

Great meal atmosphere and service. Will go back for sure.
Some of the best pasta Toronto has to offer. Highly recommend!
Ascari is a demigh
The restaurant staff are amazing, excellent wine selection, perfect menu.
Service was exceptional, food and presentation was outstanding! Thanks for a great experience! Would definitely recommend and will return
This place is fabulous! It’s our local and we couldn’t be luckier. The best pasta in the city, and it’s really so much more. The entire Ascari team are awesome (shout out to Tilly, Peter and “Chef”!) The menu always delivers, and the wine list is surprising and delightful. Always excited for the next time :)
the only thing that made us uncomfortable was the gentleman behind the Bar (we sat at the bar) Not attentive - not very friendly- just made us feel uneasy. Probably wont return.
Service was very good, good advice on wine choices ..excellent food. Music was loud to start but after requesting a lowering of sound, it was tolerable.
As always, great food and service
Always great food and service! Fantastic pastas and the appetizers are amazing.
Incredible and authentic Italian food, unique menu, and exceptional service. A bit pricy but absolutely worth it
Delicious food in an unpretentious atmosphere. The one thing I missed on the menu was a salad other than their very good variation of a caesar.
Love dining at the bar and service from Mike was fantastic!!
It was amazing! My parents were visiting from out of town and said it was one of the best meals they’ve ever had.
Best restaurant in the city.
Our server gave some great recommendations, and even though we were the last ones in the restaurant, nobody pressured us to hurry up and leave. Great food great wine!
Wonderful food. They have some interesting starters to share.
This place is a neighbourhood gem. Always a great meal with awesome service.
Excellent food but a bit pricey and no credit cards accepted.
Food was delicious. A different take on the same old same old pastas. Bread from forno cultura great. Apps very good. Service attentive and friendly.
My only caveat was the wine list—pricey! I personally didn’t partake but my friends did.
Least expensive bottle($60) was “ok”.
Overall a definite return to option.
Very good food.Wine list was also far value.total enjoyed the place will be back next trip.
Best carbonara in the city! I'll definitely be back :)
Best pasta in Toronto. Great wine selection. Waitress was great.
