Very nice meal will return
Very loud. Could hardly hear conversation between myself and the person across the table from me. There was an after work group party that was quite loud which raised the noisel to an uncomfortable level
Being from out of town I try to get local's recommendations on places to eat in the city. I was not disappointed with this recommendation. The food was fantastic and the wine list was great. Would definitely go back when visiting from out of town again.
This is the 3rd time I've been to Little Anthony's and it won't be the last. Cozy and comfortable seating, wonderful service by Michelle and lovely wine selection. Steak was fantastic and Osso Buco was fall of the bone delicious. Thank you for a delightful evening
Great restaurant. Everyone was friendly and responsive. The food came quickly and was delicious. The music was a bit incongruous with the atmosphere (a mix of old Motown hits), but not enough to detract from the overall experience. Would definitely eat here again.
Excellent food and service. Never disappoints.
Our waitress was amazing but run of her feet as the restaurant was understaffed though it was a “ballet” evening. Though she managed to get us fed and out in time, we could not help but feel her stress as she literally ran the main course to our table.
This is the second time I have eaten at this restaurant. It just doesn't impress me enough to recommend it to anyone. I do think it is a little over priced.
What a delight to find a restaurant within a few blocks of Roy Thomson Hall that does not feature 'factory food', too much noise and pushes the drinks. It was our first time at Little Anthony's and we found the service to be excellent -- attentive and friendly without being clingy -- the food was prepared with care by real chefs and the décor and ambience of the room were just right. We could actually talk to each other without shouting. The only downside was the high price of the wines. We will definitely return!
It's a nice restaurant, I have been there couple of times. It was first time with my wife. Nice ambience, good food, and good service.
I selected the reason for dinner as 'date' still the lady at the entrance gave us a bigger table instead of a smaller table, even though the tables for just 2 people were empty. I hope they pay more attention to the requests included in the open table request.
Server was nice.
My daughter and I had a very special birthday dinner before going to see Anna Bolena at the Four Seasons Centre...excellent food...service and ambiance was wonderful! One of my favourite places for a special occasion!
The food is good but the portions are too small for an Italian restaurant. Unfortunately, our family was still a little hungry after leaving so we had to grab food elsewhere. This surprised us as we ordered full sized meals for our two young children. The full order portion was smaller than most kids sized portions elsewhere. I have eaten at LA’s many times for lunch and the portions are perfect lunch-sized portions. I was a little surprised to see dinner meals the same size. Or perhaps it is the same menu for lunch. Overall, I would not recommend it as a restaurant do people who are hungry at dinner time.
"Everything went well from ease of reservation booking, ambience, our specials selection (racks of lamb), attentive and helpful food server (Jason), and value. We will return."
Food, service and atmosphere great as I have come to be accustomed with at Little A’s.
This was my 2nd time dining at this restaurant since 2 years ago. The atmosphere and service were great. Quality of food was at the same level as before as soon as I can remember.
This time We ordered the best bruschetta there at Little Anthony and it becomes my favourite. It was very tasteful with the right among of ingredients. One of the best I experienced so far in GTA. The linguine vongole was delicious. The same goes to the minestrone.
Overall we will return to this restaurant. Probably try their lunch menu next time.
A wonderful evening!! This restaurant consistently serves amazing food and the service is impeccable. I would recommend it for a special date night or an evening out for friends.
My favourite dish is linguine vongole and it never disappoints. Their food is high quality and it is consistent. It is a bit spicy which I love. Highly recommend.
ALways like the atmosphere - table clothes napkins, good service, hot food
I have been to LA's many times over the last 20 years or so and I was happy to be able to get a table for 10 - especially in the front section (separated by a curtain). We had some antipasto and bruschetta for the table, many ordered the shrimp appetizer and raved about it, others had appetizers as well.
For dinner guests ordered a variety from osso bucco to pasta and without exception everyone was happy. Service was excellent and even with several bottles of wine, coffee and dessert the bill was highly reasonable. Of course I'll be back and I think it's time I took my husband!
Great service even better food, we ordered a variety of items and all were excellent
We went with her entire family for our 20th anniversary, the service was excellent and the food was even better. The dishes didn't have a bunch of food, but it was amazing food. I would go again anytime
Been here several times for dinner with friends. (Up to 10). Food is delicious (linguine Vongole is a group favourite), and service is always consistently attentive. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Our server was Michelle Grassi. What a gem and amazing asset to your restaurant. She was very attentive, extremely helpful with the menu. She certainly added to an amazing evening.
Excellent experience as usual- consistently great food and service
Twice a year, I come to Toronto from New York to attend Opera Atelier at the Elgin Theatre, with a good friend. Little Anthony’s Italian Ristorante is our favorite “go to “ place for dinner before the opera. The service is terrific, the ambience wonderful, the food delicious! This is the perfect restaurant to go to when celebrating- or, just before attending the opera!
Had lunch with friends. Found menu a little pricey. Lunch specials would be welcome. We attend pre theater ballet dinners which offer special table haute pricing which we enjoy
We had a great meal at Little Anthony's. The food was excellent and the service was great. It was a pre-theatre meal so we needed to be in and out quickly and we were.
Very impressed with Little Anthony's while visiting Toronto. Came back every evening while we were here. All the staff were very attentive, particularly Michael. And the food is so good.
In town for a weekend getaway. Good food and great service. Michelle was very helpful with recommendations and suggestions. The bacon wrapped figs are worth the trip on their own. Enjoyed our main courses and finished with desert. Will visit again when we return to Toronto.
Underwhelming. I had previously been there for dinner so I decided to schedule a business lunch there. Selection, quantity, taste... all lacking. Good choice for a quiet conversation but not much else.
I enjoyed my experience at LA’s. I would recommend it to friends and family. The food was very good and worth the price. A nice to have would have been more variety with individual glasses of wines available to purchase. There were multiple sections to the restaurant so good for bigger groups of people.
The risotto servers with the osso bocco was tasteless . Charcuterie board is over priced for the one piece of cheese marinated carrot celery and onion 30 grams of curried meat and 4 slices of a baguette. Disappointed 🙁
Dinner was delicious.
Unfortunately they forgot to offer pepper on our salads, but as we were sitting right beside the pepper grinder, we helped ourselves to it.
Cold drafts from people entering and exiting the front door.
Always good italian food and professional environment. Good location in core downtown.
Delish food, great service and awesome location just across from the Ballet.
We were very excited to finally try this restaurant. We've walked by this restaurant for years and always wanted to try it. We finally did. Ambiance was great. Service was warm and friendly. Food was very disappointing. My shrimp appetizer was excellent, but the main course sea bass was so spicy I was sweating. It's an Italian restaurant not a Caribbean restaurant. The manager offered us a complimentary dessert. I had the tiramisu, rating it 1-10, I'd give it a 3.
Sorry, the sea bass should have been taken off the bill. We eat out every Saturday night at some of the best Toronto restaurants, I felt like the establishment thought we were tourists and wouldn't be back anyway.......and we won't.
This was a nice find close to Four Season Performing Arts Center. A change from our standard go to restaurant. Enjoyed the entire experience immensely will be returning.
It was really nice, our server was funny and polite. The food was delicious, although the portions a little smaller than expected. It all tasted great! My partner grew up in an Italian family and she said it reminded her of home.
The restaurant does not have wi-fi available. Wine list is great.
Ambience is good. Venue relatively quiet although tables are quite close together. Food was served quickly after ordering and was well presented and tasty.
