Food was very good, ambiance was great, drinks were great - No negatives here. For a couple that is vegan at home and vegetarian when going out - We were extremely happy. Will definitely be back soon with friends or family.

We loved everything about this place: service, wine, food - especially the burrata mozarella and pork ragu pasta. It’s cozy, low-light vibe made it perfectly romantic. We will be back and look forward to trying even more of the menu.

I have eaten here many times but never on the first “shift”. (6pm reso). We were treated so rudely by the waitress. She must have told us 3 times when the guests after us were coming. It was a most unpleasant evening rushing through every course, not giving us time to even enjoy the meal. Never again

It was my 1st time there, though definitely won’t be my last! Warm and cozy amosphere, great service, amazing food, and fantastic wine selection (bonus that wine bottles are 1/2 price on Tuesdays 😃)! Thanks for a great evening!

Will definitely be back. Booked last minute after another reservation fell through.
Staff were friendly and fast. The space is better for a group of friends (which is what we were) vs. a romantic dinner for two on a Friday as the noise level, while not annoying at all, isn't conducive to whispering sweet nothings. ;)

Three seniors were treated rather dismissively — we were not shown the wine list until after eating when one of our party asked if there was a wine list so she could check out a bottle which she saw on a shelf and which was not on the limited list which came with the menu. Our wait person knew far less about the wines on offer than we did. The noise made it very difficult to have a conversation without shouting. The food was quite good, wine that was available was rather pricey. Maybe a happening place for the younger crowd but definitely not for us.

We enjoy this restaurant very much. We like to sit at the front in one of the few tables there as it is quieter there. The staff is terrific and the food very good. One small disappointment was the menu had changed and didn’t include some of our favourites (risotto for example) but on the other hand it’s good to change things up from time to time. We consider it our new local however it’s worth it to check the updated menu by phone if you are after something in particular. We are always happy with their great pizzas, salads and fish.

Dinner here on New Year's Eve was great, as usual, with friendly service and good food. I must say though, that we could not help but feel rushed during our meal, even while understanding that this was a particularly busy night with another seating after our reservation. Our cocktails and wine were served at the same time, and the meals minutes later, leaving no time to enjoy a cocktail before eating. Similarly, plates were cleared away with bites still left; I put an olive in my mouth only to see that the small dish reserved for pits had been removed mid-chew. We live in the neighbourhood and love coming here, but did notice that this time felt different, like we were being cycled through instead of respectfully waited on. Of course, I attribute some of this to the busy night, and understand how it can be difficult to manage lots of reservations and expectations, but service pacing should still meet some basic standards.

A chance find with a decent wine list and a good menu. Service was really good - friendly, attentive, quick and accomodating. The menu was broad enough to give plenty of vegetarian options to choose from aside from being customizable. Food - outstanding! Probably the best Margharita pizza in Toronto. A close match to what you get in Naples! Highly recommended.

Our fourth visit to Unita and we were not disappointed. We sat in the small hallway which did wonder to cut down the noise from all of the Christmas group bookings. Service is always attentive, food is excellent (phenomenal venison special) and it's always a wonderful meal with my wife.
