The owner was the sweetest, most attentive host! Made you feel like you were at her home. We had a great time, mostly because of her =)

Noce is one of our neighbourhood ‘go-to’ restaurants. We love the ambiance, the friendly professional service and the fantastic food. Wood fired cooking, authentic quality ingredients and absolutely delicious menu items whether it be a pizza, pasta, fish, meat or fowl. We recently hosted a table of 8 friends and I couldn’t be happier with our experience.

We really do love this place and have come back a number of time but our party was seated over 35 minutes late the restaurant was overly busy and crowded more so than usual which meant that most of the food dishes were unavailable we had to go through three pasta dishes before something was able to be made our fish was not as fresh as it could’ve been and when we did get our pasta dish it was ridiculously small I could count six pieces of ravioli even the waiter asked if we needed more! But at that point we were just too tired of it all but our friends had steak and that was very good they said!

Loved the relaxed atmosphere and vibe. Pizza was very good. We sat in the back/side bar rather than front resto area. Not sure who our server was but she was amazing! Made for a great evening! Definitely recommend.

This was an exceptional evening with the best service (Bryce) and delicious food. Not to mention the great choices of wine! Fresh, creative but approachable, priced reasonably, and an experience to match. So glad to find this gem and to be taken care of by such a thoughtful and engaging server. Can't wait to come back.

Steak was slightly overdone and tortelli verde had an odd taste in the filling as well as being very salty for my liking. Salad, vegetables and halibut were all good. Service was good (water topped up regularly, warm and friendly reception).

A very unfortunate evening at Noce. Terribly slow service (2hrs to get to main course), hopelessly confused server, several ordered items "just run out "(that happened on a previous visit) and inadequate compensation (essentially none). And because of all the confusion, lack of staff etc the food when finally served was mediocre.

Nice, cozy table by the window which was great for people watching on Queen St.

Expensive for what you get though. $24 for a Burata and tomato salad appetizer is a bit much. Portion sizes were small. I would not go back.

We stumbled upon Nocce quite by accident because another restaurant was full and were we happy we did! The food was wonderful, the service extraordinary and the ambience lovely. Bread was amazing but so were the pasta dishes we had -gnocchi and tagliatelle and a wonderful salad. Great spot in Queen west!

Excellent family reunion dinner. The staff made all the arrangements, and when the weather turned out to be good, they set up an ideal table outside for us. I brought some really good wine I'd been saving (Quintarelli! Torbreck Run Rig!) and Kyle the sommelier made sure it was served perfectly.

Noce has always served excellent Italian but until recently was overly expensive in my view. Much more accessible prices now, without sacrificing any of the quality. Great cocktails too.

I'll be back again and again.

We went with my mother and my 3 year old. Very accommodating and prepared a pizetta for my daughter, despite there being no kids menu. I did get the impression that children may not be appreciated, but staff worked to hide the fact. The food was amazing. We had an apricot, asiago, walnut, three mustard salad, grilled octopus and linguine con vongole. Tasty, authentic, and so delicious!

We made a reservation for dinner on June 3rd, but because there was a wedding last night, the kitchen was unable to provide us with meals. We got a bottle of wine (so good!) and received complimentary appetizers, instead. Sad that the pizza oven wasn't working and that we had to only eat appetizer. Nonetheless, the servers/bartenders/and Mike were very friendly and made sure we had a good dining experience at Noce. Mike then later called Cube nightclub for us to make sure that we get in and skip the line. Thank you so much! My friends and I will visit again, for sure!

I have been going to Noce for years and was very excited to return after the renovations. I booked a reservation for two to celebrate our anniversary. The food was delicious (was thrilled the mushroom ravioli is still on the menu, missed the veal Milanese though) however I was really disappointed with the seating arrangement. We were seated at a bar top facing into the new open kitchen - I was not informed of this ahead of time when I booked the reservation and had I known I would have made other plans as this was a special dinner for us and bar style seating was not ideal. Furthermore, as the bar faces into their wood grill and pizza oven it was extremely hot and I was uncomfortable the whole meal. Upon being seated we immediately asked to move to one of the other many open tables for two however they could not accommodate saying other parties had all specifically requested these tables (which I found very disappointing).
