Paese Ristorante Bathurst St. Ratings and Reviews
We always have a good time at this restaurant
Food was very salty even after sending it back and re cooking it. Could have been a really good dish but saltiness just killed it. Other than that okay! Not a fan.
Love is like I found my new fav Italian - great cocktails, knowledgeable host Salvatore and authentic Italian food. I’ll be back
The service and food was excellent. More diverse wine selection would be nice
Decent food, overpriced for a neighbourhood restaurant
Excellent dining experience! Food was excellent! Service was good but not over-solicitous. Had a nice selection of specials to select from.
Wonderful meal!! I'll be back for sure!! Everyone in our group loved the food. Service was excellent.
We can always be sure that we will have a great meal at Paese
Excellent in every respect - particularly for those who require gluten free - excellent choices!
I was very pleasantly surprised! I had no idea this restaurant was here. Delicious food, friendly service, lovely presentation.
The food was absolutely delicious and nicely presented. The plate of cookies given to us with our coffee was a really lovely treat.
I have eaten at Paece many times for both lunch and dinner and have enjoyed the flavor and quality of the food each time. The service is always good. I gave the food four stars instead of five because I find the salad I love is a little small. The reason for my overall and ambience rating above is that I always find it cold in the restaurant. This time I remembered to wear warm layers but I have often eaten with my coat over my shoulders. I have asked for temperature adjustments and sometimes it works but the next time it is the same. I do wish they would adjust this.
First time there, excellent in every way!
Great food. Nice Ambiance! Tried some new vegan and vegetarian option the were really great. Always busy so make a reservation.
This restaurant has been our “go-to” place for lunches or dinners with friends for years. Staff are warm, welcoming, efficient and fun! Food is always delicious and since our last visit they have added a daily vegetarian option (which I chose - terrific!!). So good to have a tasty vegetarian meal that isn’t salad or pasta!
My friend and I went to Paese on Bathurst St. for lunch to belatedly celebrate our birthdays. The food was delicious and we enjoyed several courses: appetizer special and two main dishes which we shared. We liked the menu, good variety and interesting items for appetizers, salads, main courses and desserts. The server was very pleasant and helpful. We would certainly go back and will bring our husbands next time.
Fabulous, as per usual. My favourite spot for a great meal in Toronto.
One of my favourites!
A group of ladies had Lunch at Paese the other day. We were able to talk to each other and hear each other. This restaurant is not noisy. There were nice groups of people talking not yelling. And probably enjoying the delicious food. Our lunch was very good and enjoyable.
Their catering arm is excellent. They catered my Granddaughter's Wedding with Kudos all around.
Terrible and overpriced lunch the salmon was dry and overbuttered for $30. Not going back
The ambience, service and food were all very good. The menu had lots of selection and there were many specials to pick from. I would come back and recommend this gem of a place.
Great food great service terrific ambience !!!
The service was terrible. Our waiter spent more time socializing with preferred tables. The food was was not great. I had gone to Paese years ago and was very disappointed.
Great service, food and great atmosphere.
Returned for the first time in a couple of years. Paese is as good as I remember! Perfectly grilled octopus as a starter (my wife had the broccoli and carrot soup special) with a pair of excellent fish dishes (branzino and red snapper). Just fabulous! Service was outstanding.
We love Paese. It's our favourite restaurant.
We are never disappointed. The food is delicious and exceptional quality. Tony and his staff take pride in their service and quality. We always recommend it.
Good options on the menu but lacked a standard pasta dish. So one of us made our own and it turned out great - exacly what she wanted. I appreciate a restaurant that has that flexibility.
Always good, never disappoints, The food was very good. It was an enjoyable evening with friends.
I was somewhat disappointed. Previous reviews said that the staff was excellent at recognizing soecial occasions. I informed the staff ahead of time. When it came to,dessert, the server brought one of the desserts we had ordered and put a candle on the side. Certainly was nothing special.
The appetizers were good. My pizza was mediocre.
Never disappoints, food and service far out weighs the too close tables
Love this place. The food is always amazing. Very interesting menu. Very friendly servers and always there to fill up water without begin asked.
Worth every penny
Service was impeccable, food is excellent. Each dish is flavourful. My favourite caesar salad!
As always the food was fantastic, choice of wine was great!
The food was terrible and portions were small
Excellent dinner - everyone's meals were delicious
Good food. Very fresh and tastefully prepared. Service staff knowledgeable and suggestions very helpful and "right on" for our parties needs.
Paese remains an amazing neighborhood gem. After so many years the food and service remain fantastic and the decor is current. When I lived locally I ate here in a regular basis and always tried their interesting specials. It is now a drive for me to visit but recently had an outstanding meal while catching up with friends. Don't know why I stopped going!! One of the best wine lists you can find.
Dinner was great but we found it very pricey, Portions weren't that large.
