Visiting our son in Toronto. Wanted to get out of downtown into a more quiet neighborhood setting. The internet helped us find F'Amelia. The outdoor patio was lovely. The staff were very friendly. The food was quite good. My wife found the lasagna a little too meaty, but she likes vegetables..... Would go back anytime and our son will recommend to his Toronto friends.

Also Known As Tanya's Place to those who know it well.
This was not our first visit. It has topped our favourites list since the first time we experienced it. The food is excellent, pasta, risotto, pizza - ALL delicious.
The service is friendly, hospitable and attentive. Wednesday is wine night, every bottle over $100 is half price. We've been going for several years, enough to be considered regulars - well worth the drive from Markham to Amelia & Parliament. Can't say enough about how Tanya and the staff welcome you as if as a guest in their own home.
Only one objection - I should be allowed SIX or more stars instead of only 5.

Had such a great experience at F'Amelia on Wednesday night. The patio is so quaint and comfortable for the sunset, with amazing food, and wine. Our server was quirky and delightful with great knowledge of the menu offering us vegetarian options and great conversation. The family neighbourhood vibe makes you feel out of the city and at a cottage in Muskoka during the week.

They really know how to take care of you. The service was on point and the food was definitely worth it.
The best part, they read and try their best to follow up with your requests that you make on OpenTable. So if you ask for a bottle of wine to be ready as soon as you get to the table, they’ll actually do it. If you want a special message written on a dessert item, they’ll do it too!

Summer ambience is lovely. Service was a bit abrupt and slow. We should have stop after kale Caesar. Sangria was good but expensive at $35 for a small pitcher. Rest of the food was bland and a letdown.

The hostess was distracted and dealing with some billing problem when we arrived so we had to wait for our reserved table. She did apologize for this lack of proper greeting. Our server was much more on--focused and knowledgeable with good recommendations. The grilled octopus was tender but not exceptionally flavourful. We shared the pasta with lamb meatballs ( lamb was in small hard balls...likely a bit overcooked). Pizza was smokey, crisp and fresh. Nice atmosphere inside or out. Restaurant was quiet for a Friday--perhaps due to Pride weekend in TO? Great to be back in Cabbagetown!

A few excellent choices for our vegan crowd! The chef makes nut ricotta in-house, and it is divine on the pizzas in place of regular cheese. They can also make one of their risottos without cheese, and it was superb. One of their pastas has no egg. They were incredibly gracious both times I've been there with multiple people in our party being vegan.

We hadn't eaten at F'Amelia for a couple of years. We were completely disappointed. First the menu is really limited to pizza and pasta. We were hoping there might be a chicken or veal dish. I had calamari, which was not that great.

My partner Michael ( who used to work at Nobu) said his panzanetta salad was awful and the presentation was poor. It didn't look remotely like any he had had before. He said Dr. Oetker frozen pizzas are better than the pizza he had with you.

We were on the overflow patio, and it felt like it. It's not a pretty space and service was slow because of distance. They never bothered to turn on the patio lights which might have been a bit festive, and the place really needs some flowers or greenery.

Anyway. We won't be back.

This is the second time we dined here.
Ordered 1 order of octopus appetizer to share between 2 people - loved it so much we ended up ordering another.
Apple risotto was very good, perfectly cooked rice and sexy presentation. Linguine was outstanding. While the Lemon tart was a perfect end to a great meal, the Granita was way too sweet for us.

Made reservation that morning requesting a patio table, unfortunately when we arrived matratee advised they do not reserve the patio tables which was a disappointment. They should because that was the primary reason for going. Next time we want to enjoy patio dinning we will reserve elsewhere.

I was introduced to F'Amelia less than a month ago, and this was already my second visit.
First visit was the daily seafood feature: seared tuna, spicy risotto, olive tapenade - soooo good!
Second visit was the eggplant parmigiana pizza I'd intended to have the first time (before hearing about the tuna) - glad I stuck to my plans this time, also delicious, and generous enough for a take home slice left over.
Friends on both visits also enjoyed their meals.
Prices are quite reasonable.
Beer list needs some oomph; wine list is good... longer than the food menu!
Definitely worth repeat visits!!
