Love this is place
This is one of our neighborhood restaurants. We want to embrace it as an alternative to the other neighbor hood places that are also good or great but very casual. However we struggle to return more than once a year. Don't get us wrong. The food is excellent, the staff are great, and there is a lovely patio. Our frustration is that most of the wine list is in excess of $100 a bottle, which seems odd for a casual spot. And while the food is delicious, at $28 on average for a pasta dish, the portions are very modest and if they do contain meat, there is less than 2 oz per dish. We are not looking for third rate massive portions but when you want a pizza for dessert after shared starters and a pasta dish, this does not seem right. The large charcuterie platter had delicious meat and cheeses, but again the portions were absurdly modest with 3 crackers for 4 people. We really want to love this place but it just seems to miss the mark on price point.
Probably he best Italian food I have had outside of Italy!
An all round wonderful place: wonderful foo, wine, service and ambiencel
We were very pleased with everything service, food, quality
Cabbagetown restaurant that does not disappoint. Good food and service.
Even though I had a reservation for 7:15 it was almost 8 by the time we were seated at our table. But once seated the food and ambience were fantastic.
Great authentic Italian neighborhood restaurant in a lovely little cottage with covered and uncovered patio. Seems to be a local haunt. Thoroughly enjoyed supper here. Would definitely return!
My friend and I came on a whim and it was a great choice. The service was excellent and the food was very good! Would come again in a heartbeat, we felt very welcome here, thanks for a lovely evening!!
We had a beautiful night here with the family. The staff were fantastic and the food was DELICIOUS! The wine was also fantastic. Thank you
very enjoyabe experience . Great food and excellent service . Relaxed atmosphere . Looking forward to a return visit
Wonderful food. Excellent staff. Enjoyed a fabulous wine with dinner. F’Amelia never disappoints!!
Awesomely delicious food and excellent service ..thanks for the great evening
This was my first time at F'Amelia and I will absolutely be back! We sat outside on the patio and it was lovely. We ordered the Octopus as an appetizer and the ladagna and linguine primavera for entrees. Everything was delicious and cooked perfectly!
Next time I will be trying the pizza!
A great little spot off the beaten path in Cabbagetown.... outstanding food , service and ambiance.....have been several times and it consistently met all expectations...take a seat on the patio if you can...was there for a pre-wedding dinner with family & friends.....would highly recommend to anyone looking for an exceptional dining experience
Not our usual experience at this community “Local”! Plusses first! Our hostess at F’Amelia is, and always has been the best! We were seated promptly, served water and wine orders taken. Received our appetizers in good time and they were very good (the octopus salad is yummy). Then, a strange thing happened! We had to wait for over 45 minutes plus for our mains, while the neighbouring two tables (who arrived after us - actually one while we were having our salads) received their mains well before us! No explanation or apology from our waiter! Our second round of wine orders were mixed up as well! My pizza was very good, but my wife’s evening “special” consisted of halibut on a risotto that tasted of nothing at all!! Not the type of experience One expects after dropping over $250 on a dinner!
Friendly, accommodative, knowledgeable wait-staff.
This was a disappointing meal. We went to F'Amelia and ordered from the Summerlicious menu. Our first disappointment was to be told by our waiter that one of the three appetizers was not available that evening, nor was the fish main course, nor was one of the three desserts listed. The food we ordered was fine, especially the scallop ceviche appetizer, which was very good. The arugula salad was fine, just a pile of arugula with a bit of cheese on top. Our main courses arrived while our appetizer plates were still on the table, and had to be moved aside to make room for our food. (We were also told to hold on to our cutlery.) One of the main course we ordered was the osso bucco. This is typically a solid piece of veal, around a bone. One of the highlights of this dish is eating the marrow from the bone. F'Amelia's version came with maybe 4 oz. of shredded meat piled on to the centre of the plate of polenta. Whatever you can call that dish, it wasn't osso bucco. Ordering dessert, we were now told that a second of the three desserts was no longer available. If we had walked in to the restaurant past 10pm on a busy evening, it would be completely understandable that much of the menu was no longer available. When you sit down a 8pm on a Saturday evening, this is not acceptable.
The restaurant had very loud rock music . Unusual to expect in an Italian restaurant.
Food was OK but expensive in relation to everything else about the restaurant. Wine seemed very expensive.
Service was good and in fact a bit too speedy.
OK for a neighbourhood restaurant but otherwise not very unique.
This is our favourite neighbourhood restaurant...always terrific ...food and service equally outstanding
Very nice restaurant off the beaten track but amazing mouth watering food. Certainly hit the spot
Smmerlicious menu was good. The scallops app delicious. Risotto fungi superb as always . And the Quattro Stagioni pizza a delicious pre dinner starter .
Staff welcoming and friendly.
Outdoor seating in Victorian Cabbagetown relaxing.
Great wine list.
The tiramisu was amazing! It is a must try in the Toronto dining scene !!!
Simply excellent! The food, the service, the wine and the ambiance were all great! It is wonderful having such a gem in a neighbourhood setting...off the main road. Very cozy.
This is quickly becoming our favourite restaurant we love the patio
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.
Great evening, good wine list, fresh ingredients, lovely ambience on the patio... stellar attention to the details.
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!
Nice atmosphere, perfect music leaving enough space for conversation, priceless patio on quiet street, lot of parking, decent menu. What else to ask for? Just good friend and joy your time in this venue.
Awesome local Italian spot
The restaurant has great food! I loved all the food we tried and will definitely go back. The place was very busy when we arrived because of wine Wednesday which we took full advantage of.
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!
F’Amelia never disappoints. Food is top quality. Staff are intuitive courteous warm and efficient. They make this resto my top choice!
Great food and service.
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.
F’Amelia has been our favourite neighbourhood restaurant for a long time and it continues to be so.
This place is all heart... you feel it when you walk in the door, and you taste it in the exceptional food. I would eat here every day if I could!!!!
