In the heart of the Financial District, Modus Ristorante is Toronto's plush spot for refined Italian cuisine.

We host one of the Financial District's best patios with ample seating for all occasions. Modus might serve Italian food, but refreshingly, no one’s anxious to label it “rustic.” Modus’s menu takes recognizable Italian classics and re-creates them as fine-dining fares.

The restaurant offers an extensive 300-bottle wine program, with seasonally selected wine by the glass. A focus on Italian, Californian and South American wines provides excellent pairing for a fine dining experience.

Behind Modus is Sam Genkov, owner of the 23-year-old District favourite Bravi Ristorante.

    Good service, the patio was too noisy from street noise. Food was acceptable, I had the swordfish which lacked flavour. My guest had the sirloin pasta which was a huge portion. The bread and olives were warm and delicious. Overall not a bad experience, will return and avoid the swordfish.

    Dear Modus Ristorante Management, I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere appreciation for the exceptional dining experience I had at your establishment on Friday, April 12, 2024. From the moment I stepped through the doors, I was impressed by the warm ambiance and attentive service provided by your staff. Kristina Burda, my server for the evening, deserves special recognition for her professionalism and attention to detail. She made sure every aspect of my dining experience was nothing short of perfect. The culinary delights offered at Modus Ristorante truly surpassed my expectations. The glass of Rose Jean Luc Colombo was a delightful start to the evening, perfectly complementing the exquisite flavors of the Cream of Mushroom Soup and the Red Snapper, which were both dinner features that evening. The Tiramisu dessert was the perfect finale to an already delightful meal, and the Americano served with milk and sugar provided a comforting endnote to the evening. Overall, I must commend Modus Ristorante for consistently delivering impeccable service and culinary excellence. It’s clear that every member of your team takes great pride in ensuring that guests have a memorable dining experience. Thank you once again for a wonderful evening, and I look forward to returning to Modus Ristorante in the near future. Warm regards, Quoc Phan

    service was slow today - looked like an AGM was happening at the same time so perhaps that’s why, as usually it is quite good.

    Usually great but my past 1-2 experiences have been sub-par with extremely loud atmosphere and unremarkable food.

    It was a business meal and we were seated so close to the kitchen and could hear dishes banging through out and it was difficult to have conversation
