Amazing to be able to still dine out during this crazy time. Food was great, Covid precautions in place and the patio heaters made it warm enough to be able to enjoy the meal.
Well executed food, excellent service in an intimate setting. Very interesting selection of wines.
One of our favourite local restaurants...never disappoints ❣️
outdoor dining was warm and safe. love this spot and they have done a great job accommodating during these tough times.
We were there to celebrate our 24th anniversary with our kids. The food was excellent and the ambiance was wonderful. The new roof and outdoor heaters kept us warm enough to enjoy a 3 course meal and after dinner drinks. The chef was swift and precise with bringing our food and describing the dishes mindful of the cold weather. Thank you Ascari for making our celebration so special 💕👍🏼
Given the circumstances we were very happy with our recent dinner at Ascari Enoteca. The food was delicious and every measure possible was taken to make our experience a good one - as we were dining outside on the patio in November!
Fantastic food as always and I felt safe and comfortable. Pasta portions are very very small for $22-25. Delicious but I was extremely disappointed with the size. I will not frequent this restaurant, will be for a special occasion only. I still recommend that you eat here though! Their brussel sprouts are killer.
Excellent atmosphere with super cozy heat lamps at each table. The service was great and the food was absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to go back.
The food is absolutely amazing. Second time there and both times very impressed and enjoyed the food very much. Service not that great. Still recommend.
A great evening with fantastic food. Their social distancing measures provided a level of comfort, and I’ll definitely be going back.
We had a wonderful time and will look forward to being back soon.
Family of 3 on the patio. Food was amazing as usual. The heaters were magical and kept us warm. The servers were great.
Always a treat. Brilliant food. Great wine cellar.
service was excellent - attentive, friendly, but never overbearing.
food was exceptional. everything was delicious. simple, flavourful, and fresh. my entire meal made me really happy to have braved the elements for a night out. it is very strange to be on a patio in october in canada, but the experience was well worth it.
(speaking of the elements, the heaters were plentiful and well-placed.)
i want to go back as soon as i can - and being in a position where i am working from home these days, i wish they were open for lunch!
was okay but value for money is questionable given portion size
It was OK. I love this restaurant but this outdoor dining experience was average. Admittedly I ordered a starter and main that were both lemon-based in flavour (risotto balls and ricotta stuffed pasta). And I realize that the menu was a paired-down version of the regular menu. It was tasty but very average. Service was great, heater was nice but overall not as special as I remember Ascari being.
So happy to be able to eat at a restaurant at all these days. Ascari Enoteca is a great, casual neighbourhood gem with delicious food, wine, desserts and a lovely little deck to sit on with heaters!
I always have a fabulous time dining at enoteca ascari, and this time did not disappoint! Great service & fantastic food- loved the new additions to the menu. The heaters on the patio were a lovely touch as we did not feel the cold at all. Thank you so much!
We were celebrating my first job offer since graduating professional school. We chose Ascari as I had come across it one day while walking and was excited to try the pasta and wine! Everything was lovely about our experience. We had a larger group behind us that were very loud and obnoxious - but this is beyond restaurant control. I suppose more space from them would have been nice. Otherwise this was a lovely experience. Food was exceptional and the wine was a perfect pairing.
Best Italian restaurant in the city! The carbonara is heavenly!
Loved it! Great service, very friendly, and wonderful food. We are still talking about our meals that night.
This is an unfailingly good place. Great food and service. Always.
The food and service was spectacular! Loved the carbonara!
Great kitchen; you can't go wrong by dining here. Hoping for post-covid!
Considering we’re in the midst of a pandemic- the food, service, the overall atmosphere was very enjoyable.
The best! The food/drink is always A+++. Best team in the city!
Great place to enjoy a delicious meal
They take covid precautions very seriously so felt completely comfortable
The service was great, our server was fantastic and we had some nice conversation as I work in the industry too. Cocktails were good. We both had pastas that were ridiculously salty, and this is coming from someone who loves salty food. The portion was nice but the salt overpowered any other flavour.
ALSO. Bought a slice of the soft cheese to go. Opened it the next day at home. Smell was so disgusting I had to immediately throw it in the bin. I had to wash my hands twice to rid myself of the smell and the entire room smelled of human waste. I love all cheeses, especially the stinky variety, but this smell was not at all appetizing and I’m wondering if the cheese had gone rancid. The grocery items have no dates on them, I’m not sure why.
Fantastic on every level! Best restaurant in Toronto... hands down 👏👏👏
Wonderful food and and a perfect patio experience. Staff lovely.
Excellent food and service! Ascari Enoteca is taking precautions to keep clients and staff safe during COVID-19, and they're doing a great job of it.
One of the best Italian restaurants in the city!
We had a lovely experience and the food was exceptional.
We love this place!
They have proven to be champions through all the challenges of COVID.
Amazing service and fantastic food!
A total treat!
Amazing meal! Service was nice and fast. Food was incredible as was the wine selection. Will definitely be back!
Delicious! Vegetarian friendly. Would definitely recommend.
Perfect and good adherence to covid safety.
Excellent time for my girlfriends birthday! Our server was very knowledgable and polite! It would’ve been nice to have even a bit of low music while we ate, but I understand it was probably a COVID issue. Thanks again for everything!
Dinner was delicious as always. Service was knowledgeable and attentive. Recommend this place for anyone looking for a great dinner spot in Leslieville.
