Ferro has been established and family-operated since 1993. The Space: Originally a billiard hall of colourful yet dubious character which endured for over 20 years, the Pronesti family took possession over two decades ago and added eclectic yet tasteful elements of industrial, avant-garde design while maintaining the vibrancy and creative energy of the original space. The Food: Serving up traditional southern Italian cuisine with a creative spin where we feel you will enjoy it! Our original culinary ambitions have never changed: By holding true to the family recipes and dedication to fresh ingredients as passed down through the generations that have preceded us, we bring you authentic, honest, home-cooked food the very same way we enjoy it.

I have been here quite a few times in the past as I live in the area, but not in the past 6 months. I took my boyfriend for his birthday dinner this time and made a note in my open table reservation. Most times I’ve went have been a decent experience overall. This time, however, I’m not sure if they were understaffed or just had new people in the kitchen.. but our food took over an hour after we ordered and there was only one other table in the restaurant when we came and one person at the bar. The mushroom crostini appetizer was good, but our entrees were terrible for the most part. When I asked to have my food packed up, they packed it up, but only the meat and no idea what happened to the remainder of my food. (There was quite a bit) - maybe threw it out? Who knows. The waiter was friendly, but seemed unorganized and didn’t come to ask us if we would like more drinks when ours were gone and didn’t ask if we would like the bill for quite a while after our food was already packed up- had to flag him down. I also saw other tables who came in after us looking around and wondering when he was going to take their order. (I will say he was the only waiter working though) The waiter assistants who refilled waters and helped out here and there were nice. Ambiance is nice. Two stars- only because the ambiance and some of the staff were friendly. Probably won’t go back.

Service was great. Food was deliscious. My husband loved the spaghetti alla marinara considering he is a very picky eater, can’t take him just to any restaurant. The mushrooms were great! Cozy ambiance.

Food was excellent but the service was disorganized as there were too many individuals bringing food not knowing who got what, no offer or pepper or cheese, forgetting drinks. Room was fun and amour group had fun. Les support staff and more experienced

I took my family to Ferro for their first time/my belated birthday dinner. Out main server was very professional and patient while we chatted and perused the menu. There was a little bit of overlap in service but better to be thorough than remiss, I say. The only snag was that it seems a door was left open for some time toward the end of our meal and some of us caught the draft. Overall we had a fantastic experience and will definitely be back again soon and often.

Ferro Bar has long been a favorite spot for us whenever we visit Toronto. The staff are amazing and we love the food and ambiance. One of the BEST Italian restaurants out there anywhere. The handcrafted cocktails are awesome and the Magic Mushrooms are a must. Incredible!

We started our new year’s Eve here before going out. We split a pizza and a pasta and both were delicious!! Place was loud, but it was busy and felt festive. Great service.

Food as always was very good and consistent. We have been eating here for years.

However the waitress wasn't that attentive but the bus/helper was very ary on top of things I personally the positions should be switched. Didn't get the guys name but he was tall and black, I even personally told him that he was very attentive.
Does this stop me from going back never.

Went here for a birthday, overall solid food in a good location but nothing special. Thought the service could have been better, they totally forgot about the birthday girls meal and did not seem to feel very bad.

Love this place! We wish they had opened up seating in the back for lunch. It was cramped for a group of six in the front area.

maybe an off night, but i have been a huge ferro lover for years and years. Friday evening i found everything about it to be poor. And i brought a table of 8 to the restaurant. So disappointed beginning with the server. Food was tasteless that night. Had to send back stuff. Though magic mushrooms have always been fabulous.
Had an upcoming reservation that I had to cancel because I had such a poor experience friday evening.
Wish the waiters and waitresses would crack a smile...
How disappointing after loving this place for so many years.

The food was amazing -- highly recommend the pasta. Unfortunately, our dessert orders were forgotten and my take-out was mislaid for about an hour, but otherwise it was a great experience. (And they did comp the desserts, which was appreciated!) Have eaten there before with no issues, so maybe it was just an off night. Either way, the delicious dishes made it worth it! Would recommend and return.

Food was decent. Although we felt like we were rushed out at the end. We were still eating/drinking and suddenly servers kept trying to pack up our food that we hadn't finished yet. Music was a bit loud. Servers missed a few people's meals or offering peppers/cheese, etc.

Cousin and I went for lunch just before Christmas. The interior was very inviting and warm looking. Our waiter was friendly and very helpful. We had magic mushrooms, gnocci (sp?) and zupa di pesci. All excellent along with complimentary bread and olive oil, parmesan, balsamc dip. I had a glass of Proscecco. We sat near the door with only a thin wall between us and the area next door which is under construction. Power saws made a horrific noise and construction guys walked through noisily yelling out to each other. Definitely very off putting. Final opinion? Food excellent! Ambiance sucked eggs big time.
