This was our first time at Francobollo! We had heard many good things about this restaurant. The experience exceeded our high expectations. Our server Johnathan was amazing! He had great knowledge of the cuisine and offered some very tasty suggestions. The food was wonderful especially the Lobster and Burrata Linguine! We will definitely be back and recommend Francobollo to our friends and family.

Firstly, for those that need to book private parties or professional events I think that FRANCOBOLLO has the best small-medium sized private rooms in Toronto. I have probably attended >10 private events at the restaurant (many organized by myself) and the service, pricepoint, food quality, room qualithy and everything is always impeccable.

This however is a review on the main dining room. Great small restaurant with good food and inventive specials. Many plates are suitable for sharing and the staff is very sensitive to being flexible re sharing and also minor alterations to the menu and specials. The quality of the food is impeccable, always fresh and inventive. I have never had a bad meal there and btw The BURRATA is to die for. Only criticism is that the room has a rather cold atmosphere.

We were recommended by a friend to go.
The service was great. I ordered the signature caesar salad and the pasta bolognese - both were flavourful and delicious. I Loved. The bread and olive oil at the beginning was tasty as well.
They pour a good sized glass of wine - which is always a bonus. And the house wine was much better than other house wines. Nothing worse than a small glass of wine for $x.
We declined dessert, but I'm certain their Tiramisu would have been amazing.
It's a cozy atmosphere, perfect for a nice meal out in North Toronto.
Thank you!

This is a great mid-town find for us. We go to Tara ( Thornhill), as soon as I found out this is part of their group I booked a reservation.
Food and service were very, very good...highly recommended.

Service is very slow! We arrived before most people and all regulars were served their meals before us. Food is average and table side service is non existent in most part. Heard excuses as to why arriving at 6:30 and not getting our meal to 8, but honestly did not care. Would not return or recommend at all. Booked on open table and listed my food allergies which they ignored to read or acknowledge.

The food was awful, super salty. I got a seafood pasta and my wife got a steak. I talked to the server and got a new dish of pasta which taste the same. I only tasted a bite which is horrible then we just left. The serve was nice enough to waive the charge for the wine and my dish.

good service overall, friendly and helpful. Food was not as great as other reviews, and the fish was a little overdone. Somehow they couldn't control the temperature of the restaurant very well, going from super cold to normal temperature by turning on/off the air conditioner throughout the night. Rather annoying.

WOW! Beautiful decor, food and wine! Hubby had romaine salad and veal chop and loved it. I had romaine salad and sea bream and it was awesome! The best! Our martinis were perfect and the wine was superb. We shared tiramisu and it was delicious! The bread basket was filled with slices of bread so yummy it could easily have passed for cake. The waiter was awesome and made my birthday so special. We will be back and I'm thrilled to say this is my new favourite restaurant!

First time there. Booked based on location (I'm in the hood) and star rating on Open Table. Waiter was knowledgeable and suggested a great wine for dinner. Had a great Sense of humour. We were seated upstairs, which felt a little too much like someone's living room. Would have preferred to be seated downstairs. Food fantastic, but mains took a long time to come.

There were some nice private rooms upstairs though if privacy is what you are looking for. Main floor had much more of a buzz.

Three of us enjoyed a great dinner last Sunday. We followed recommendations and had some of the seasonal softshell crab. The Barbetiola salad was amongst the tastiest anywhere. We ordered gnocchi, prawns/scallops and risotto, all of which were outstanding. A good wine list to choose from, yummy deserts and coffees rounded out the experience. Highlight of our evening was our waiter, Jason. Intelligent, witty, knowledgeable, attentive and all around likeable he made this a truly enjoyable evening. Five stars in all departments!

One of our "go to places" when we are in Toronto visiting our daughter. Food is always amazing...the service is beyond...everyone who works there is so passionate about the food and the dining experience. Although the wines are a little high priced we were able to find something and it was delicious!
Definitely a tradition and one we will continue to go to!!

I have visited this restaurant several times. I have not found any disappointment at different meal I have had.

A variety of meal selection and specials which can meet most people's appetite.
The only thing is about quietness. If you are looking for very quiet dinning environment, this does fit in the category. Perhaps this is a happy dinning environment, so people cannot help talking a bit loud.
