I entered the restaurant while the rest of the party was parking. I was seated immediately and offered a drink right away. Our server was friendly and attentive without being overly so.

The fish was a bit under seasoned and the polenta was underwhelming but overall I would say it was a lovely dining experience

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.

Food was excellent, Service was good. They would not provide separate bills for two couples. The noise level was unbearable especially with the front window being open. We could also smell fumes from the cars/buses. Would not return or recommend this place.

4.5 stars. Excellent food, apps, fresh fish, pasta, desserts. Wine a bit pricey. The only problem is noise even when the place is half full. Still, one of the very best Italian restos in Toronto.

Traditional Italian, always excellent. We sat at the only patio table which was super cute, boxed in by planters...also lot of traffic so it was nice but noisy at times. Serice was good, but felt rushed. It's a bustling place.

Met a great friend from out of town there....so it was a special occasion to get together. We both enjoyed our dinners: They brought selection of bread to start which I did not try. I had calamari for my main and split a caprese salad and my friend had veal scallopini with mushrooms. My only complaint is that the tomatoes in the caprese salad were tasteless (inexcusable in summer months especially!) and the salad needed salt (which is not provided on the table). So while beautiful the caprese salad was a let down. We split a half litre of wine. Service was very good. Restaurant is beautiful. Dinner was around $120 plus tip for the two of us.

The food was excellent. Plenty of wait staff who were extremely attentive and efficient.
The veal chop was an excellent choice. Done to perfection. Portions were more than
adequate. The four of us enjoyed our meals thoroughly.
Only complaint would be the noise level...very difficult to hear one another speak.

While visiting Toronto, I booked one night at EVOO for my family. We loved it so much that we returned the following evening. We all agreed if we were longer we would probably go back.
I was sorry I did not have a chance to try the Bronzino.
