Food is always great at EVOO as well as service. If you like pasta, one of my favourites is the linguine with shrimps and scallops. It's made with a creamier sauce and is quite rich but is really delicious!!! Staff is friendly and ambience is great! I will definitely go back!

Great service but I had a ribeye that was very chewy and a little underdone that being said they took it off our bill which was very nice and unnecessary. My wife had a great meal and the desert was very nice too. I would go back everyone has an off night so one not so good steak won't deter me it is a very nice place.

enjoy.

We were visiting family in Toronto and this restaurant was recommended by a person my husband works with. The ability to book on line made is very easy - I also called when we got to Toronto to increase our table by one and there wasn't any problem. We visited the restaurant on a Sunday so that may be different on another day but there was ample parking right across the street. The atmosphere was very pleasant and elegant for a nice dinner. Our server Sandra was the very best and indulged us in conversation that made us feel like we were in Italy again. The food was very yummy we had apts to share that were that also brought us back to our vacation in Italy. Will definitely go back.
