The meal was outstanding and so was the service. My only regret was that I did not get to eat in the dining room as I was dining alone so I got a seat at the bar which was fine but I would have liked the ambience of the dining room. Next time I'll book far enough in advance to get a seat at a table. The presentation was gorgeous!

I have been to Noce many times but my latest experience was pretty awful. It took 5 minutes for someone to stop and greet us at the door and another 10 to be seated for our reservation. Our server was really the main issue, she completely forgot what I ordered during the same conversation and I had to repeat the order again. We heard two other tables around us with the same server complain that they hadn't received their food in over an hour and that she had forgotten 1-2 items all together. Our appetizers came out and then our food but our drink orders never did. Once it was brought up, the server was quick to blame the bartender for forgetting to make my drink (it was her fault too for not checking on it and reminding him?) and she simply said sorry and walked away. We also asked for butter 4 times until we finally asked a different server (who brought it within 2 mins). We ended up missing our show after dinner because we were delayed by 30+ mins. Truly surprisingly for a place with such esteem and reputation. I will not be returning.

We got a nice spot on the patio. Staff were attentive, food was great. Good experience...except for the end. There was an issue with another table not getting their orders. Our waitress finally came over, we asked for a digestif, (Averna), and our bill. She came with our bill, no Averna, and didn’t return w the debit machine for 15 mins. We pointed out that she forgot the Averna, she didn’t offer to bring it or comp it, barley said sorry. Seemed annoyed with the issue from the other table and was almost rude when we pointed out that she should have offered to bring the drink after forgetting it and making us wait so long to pay. Not a huge deal, but definitely soured the overall experience right at the end.

Was very disappointed after having first to wait half an hour despite making reservations a week prior
We had 3 different servers who didn’t seem to know who was taking our table and each came with different understanding of what the others had taken / told us about prior

Food was very bland and mediocre- I heard great things, but was very disappointed
Fungi pizza was watery- mushrooms not drained or dried properly so each bite was mushy and you could feel the excess water coming out.
Tatar was bland with no seasoning
We expected more pastas with meat sauce - there was one, and it was overlooked paperdelle and again, lacked flavour and was watered down. Seafood pasta undercooked and contained small nodules of hard overly fish things (still not sure what they were)
Gnocchi was ok- that’s all.
Overall will not return to this establishment

We ordered cocktails for before our meal and they took a long time to arrive. They came almost when our appetizers arrived and we ordered wine with our meal that came almost same time so timing was bad.

We asked the waiter about the fish special. He did not describe it well as there was a sauce that had a very distinct flavor and we could not eat the meal. That was disappointing.
Other food was generally good but a bit on the pricey side.
Maybe this was a bad night so would consider again.

First off my girlfriend and I loved the cleverness of the name choice.
The service was great, very attentive and knowledgeable. Really brought our experience to the next level. The food was hands down one of the best meals I have ever had in Toronto... and I work in the food industry so that should not be taken lightly. We had the burrata with albicocche and camomilla to start and I'm still thinking about it. Not sure where they get it from but it tasted like the fresh burrata I was eating in Italy a week ago. The pizza was also like being back in italy, nice and light but full of flavor, you can really taste the difference the fior di latte makes. The aged rib eye was cooked to perfection!
I highly recommend going to Noce.

Came by for a lunch and was surprised by 50% off select bottles of wine on weekends.

The food was excellent. The pescado friti (fried seafood) were calamari and shrimp. They were crisp, not greasy and very tasty! The wood oven pizzas had crisp and chewy crusts and the toppings for the pizza was very fresh! The zucchini flowers and zucchini paired nicely with the salty hit of anchovy and the fresh ricotta. The breosala pizza was also very flavourful!

The servers were very attentive and passionate about the food. Definitely worth coming back!

We were warmly welcomed as we celebrated an anniversary by spending the evening at Noce. The food is recognizable, but we enjoyed the best versions of what we could have imagined. I was blown away by the texture of the pasta in the Pappardelle dish, and the flavours of everything were excellently seasoned. The staff were friendly and easy to talk to. It was a delightful evening, complete with garbage bag capes, so as to not get wet on our way home.

I went for summerlicious and had picked Noce at random. It was a wonderful experience. I really love the atmosphere with the different themed rooms and the layout. The food was very good; fresh, not heavy. It was more interesting to try new dishes than just getting pizza and pasta at an Italian restuarant. Our waitress was great. She was very polite and came by often to check in on us. I will definitely be visiting again!

This restaurant made my family and I nostalgic for our days spent in Italy. The food was EXCELLENT (better than quite a few highly rated restaurants located in the heart of Rome), the service was unmatched, even in a booming restaurant the staff made it feel so personal, and did I mention how great the food was? Also, we’d highly recommend any steak, they are cooked to perfection. Thank you Noce, for making this the best meal we’ve had in Canada!

I had summerlicious and the food was very tasty and plentiful. It was quite a surprise to see 2 familiar waiters from their other location by the ACC (Scotiabank Arena). Really good service and it was nice to see the owner walking around and asking if the food was good. I would definitely go back to try their regular menu.

I visited for their Summerlicious dinner and it was great! Excellent service, the staff are very warm and welcoming. We got a table inside right by the window facing the park; the ambiance inside the restaurant was incredibly friendly. The food of course was delicious; a great deal for Summerlicious! Great portion sizes and my belly was full! Will be coming back in the future.

My partner and I (both industry people!) had an amazing time at Noce. We were served by Stefano, who let us know that he was new and took extra care in making wine and menu recommendations. All staff were extremely pleasant and the food was amazing. We ordered a whole ribeye steak on top of our 3 course Summerlicious meals because the food was THAT good. The side potatoes are cooked in beef fat and are to die for. They recently renovated and added a bar area, which looks beautiful- we will definitely be back for seats at the bar. Happy to have found a nice restaurant in the neighbourhood for future date nights!

This was my third and my husband's second time at Noce. This lovely spot has never disappointed yet! We are hard to please as my husband is a fabulous at-home cook making it difficult for us to be impressed by restaurants. The food at Noce is consistently excellent with a variety of incredibly creative options. The handcrafted cocktails are wonderful and the selection of spirits and wines is fantastic for a small restaurant such as this. Guido and Elena have such a passion for fresh, authentic, delicious food and they love to share that with guests. Their staff aim to please and are incredibly pleasant. The interior of the restaurant is wonderful for warm, cozy winter dinners but also light-filled for these long summer evenings. We dined on the patio this time and it was fine but could use a little something to cozy it up a bit. Perhaps some tall plants along the walls, some twinkly lights, an awning? I am not a decorator but there is a little something needed to make the patio match the level of the interior and the wonderful staff. :) Otherwise, a fantastic experience! I have no hesitation about recommending Noce. Thanks again for a wonderful evening!

We loved it so much, we went back the next night!

From the moment we walked in, we felt completely at home. The service was warm and friendly and was matched only by the impeccable food. We had the spot prawns (get them now - they won't be in season for long!), the house cured beef carpaccio style, and the tagliatelle with soft shell crab. All was done to perfection.

This is our new spot. We will be back again and again.
