Little Anthony's Italian Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
Service slow...forgot to bring my soup...osso bucco tough and served on a sour-tasting risotto.
My colleague was sick all night after his meal.
I do not recommend this restaurant for the food and service.
Took over 20 minutes before we were asked if we wanted drinks
Felt like we had a waitress and and waiter
Waiter took food order before waitress took our drink order
Neither of them seemed to know what the other person had done at the table - they need much better communication with each other
We felt very rushed to eat and leave.
Ended up going back to our hotel and having drinks after we were rushed out
Service was excellent and took into account our pre event time schedule. Cesar salad was very generous and was shared with ease. Pasta dishes were very tasty but less generous and consequently a little pricey. Waiter might have reminded us of pre theatre special. will give it another try.
As always, had a great meal at Little Anthony’s. Love the variety on the menu and hey food is always good.
Food and service were great. Thought wine was very pricey.
Everything was great except that the restaurant was very cold even though we were the furthest possible away from the front door. Service and food were all excellent!
Bravo! On point with service and freshness of meal.
The restaurant was so cold, we had to eat with our jackets on
The restaurant was cold, having been closed for two days, but our initial waiter was very charming and apologetic. Food was nice. Our second waitress not so chatty or responsive. I had to go up to the bar to pay the tab at the end although I had requested the bill. Overall a decent experience.
Good quality food for price. Liked that they had a pre-show(Ballet) one price menu. Service was. If so engaging, but was smooth and quick.
My husband and I had a lovely lunch this Christmas season at LA. The food was delicious as always. I feel compelled to mention the excellent service we received from two gentlemen. Truly expert service.
There is not a lot of selection on the menu. The food was mediocre, service was good. Friendly wait staff and hostess.
Really good food! I ordered the shrimp salad and the seafood pasta and they were both excellent! Really worth the money.
Rushed through dinner by waitress. I ordered the three course meal. Dessert was plopped in front of me immediately following main course, at which point they then asked my spouse whether she would be interested in dessert. Really? Couldn't they solicit her order before delivering my dessert? Ordered two cappuccinos, which took longer than the whole meal to that point. We have eaten there often in the past, but never again.
My daughter & I came for dinner before seeing The Nutcracker Ballet & the service was outstanding by Michelle! She & the other staff made sure that we able to have our meal & be out in enough time to not be late! Outstanding!
Food and service both excellent.
One of the best tiramisu's I've had.
Reservation was at 5 pm and we were seated immediately - lots of time to eat and relax before the theater at 7 pm.
Staff was very friendly and helpful with menu selections.
Will definitely go back.
We went for dinner before the Nutcracker and the service was quick & attentive. The food was good and we had a nice table by the window. Would definitely recommend.
We come here every time we visit Toronto and are usually very pleased with the experience. This time was a big disappointment, service was slow and inattentive. Our Pasta was good but in small portions and the accompanying meat balls were stone cold. My second beer never arrived.
Went for pre-theatre dinner, informed Emily our waitress that we were attending Nutcracker. She was very attentive, kept track of time and let us know as we near our time. When we inquire about sharing appetizers, she suggested the Antipasto board which was not over the board and perfect since we were not big eaters and would not fill us too much before our main course. We had ordered the Wild Mushroom Risotto & the Veal Osso Buco...both were absolutely delicious. Ambiance & service was excellent!
Absolutely delicious. Great service. The food was freshly made.
Food was quick. Service was great. Atmosphere was great. Highly recommend!
Awesome Italian food! Great place for a business lunch.
Our first visit to Little Anthony's and we were very disappointed. The Caesar salad was soggy and certainly not fresh. Even though I asked for the salmon to be cooked medium, it was over-cooked and dry, the Chicken parmesan was very ordinary and not what we expected for the price point. Overall............very disappointing and I would not recommend it to others.
The one positive was our server who was very gracious and pleasant and got us out on time for the theatre.
Food was good but we didn't have enough time to enjoy it as our table that we reserved for 6:00 wasn't available until about 6:20 and by the time we got our main course it was close to 7 and we had to leave by 7:20 at the latest.
Un excellent choix pour un repas entre amis avant le spectacle !
Very nice restaurant for pre theatre dinner and lunch on a weekday
We were on a tight schedule and the staff were very responsive and ensured that we were able to finish the dinner on time.
Wonderful meal and attentive service just one block from our hotel (Toronto Hilton)
Our first time in. We were greeted well and a nice table they asked if we were going to a show which we were. Our food arrived hot and timely enough to have dessert. Our food was tasty and hot good sized portions not overwhelming the dish or a dot on a plate. Meal finished with lots of to get to our show. I will love to return.
Delicious food and service. We use this restaurant often for business meetings and everyone always comes out happy.
Service was excellent and food was really good! Even on a busy Saturday night the service was exceptional.
Food was great . Risotto had an almond essence flavour to it which took away from how amazing the osso buco was but still didn't stop me eating the whole thing . Salmon was perfection .
This restaurant is my go to place for dinner when I am going to the opera. The food is very good and the service always efficient and friendly. They always ensure I do not miss the opening curtain.
This was our second time visiting for a pre theatre dinner. The first time we didn’t have much time so we got a number of appetizers and they were fantastic. Especially the bacon wrapped dates. The seafood scampi and calbrese salad were also very good. Service was outstanding as the rushed out the food as we were on a tight timeline. So we had to go back.
This time we had the entrees and weren’t so impressed. Had the chicken parm and seafood linguine special. Very little seafood and my chicken was lukewarm. Service was still excellent.
It seems that it may be hit and miss and will wait to go back.
Little Anthony's was a perfect place to meet out of country friends.
We haven't seen each other in a while.
We were given the small room which made conversation so much easier for all.
Michael our waiter, was attentive and kind. The food was lovely.
So glad we picked this restaurant.
Very nice restaurant. Wait staff were very friendly. Food was very good. Drinks were small and overpriced.
Food was delicious, the price point was spot on, in fact, I'd expect to have paid more for the quality of the food. Restaurant was nice and quiet, and service was great. Visiting from out of town, so far my (and my wife's) favorite restaurant in Toronto.
The atmosphere is cosy and low key. The meal was very good -luscious pasta sauces. The service was very good-attentive and considerate. We had a very enjoyable evening.
We had a delightful dinner. Waiter with great sense of humor (ok he laughed at our jokes). Good to arrive after Theater/opera goers left so seating better. Rez recommended on weekends at least. Food prep great, very accommodating and attentive. We have dined here several times, usually before opera.
The Strozzapreti was delicious! Our server was efficient and delightful.
