The name is Quanto Basta. When do you say you’ve had enough? Dionysus, who we’re sure would be a regular, would say there is always room for good food and drink. When you come to Quanto Basta, you’re sure to leave satisfied. But how much is enough? When you’re enjoying your meal and wine it’s hard to stop in the moment! For us, “non basta mai.” It is never enough! Good food, good drink, good atmosphere, good friends – why stop?

We went with relatives from Arizona and we were all very pleased. We had pasta, Branzini and the appetizers were amazing also. I love to introduce this restaurant to new people since I trust the food will be truly enjoyed!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - this is my favorite restaurant in Toronto. The food is fresh and cooked to perfection; every time. There are many more restauraunts that I’ve eaten at and to be honest - although some may be hyped up and often expensive because of that - I’d struggle to say one is “better” - others might be noisier, more expensive with hard up sells, and yes good food maybe. But for me personally - Quanto Basta hits it out of the park every time !

Loved the atmostphere, food and service. Restaurant is beautifully appointed for a boutique feel, yet comfortable enough to accommodate casual fine dining style. We thoroughly enjoyed the energy and buzz and still found it intimate enough for a some quality time to catch up.

We chose Quanto Basta to celebrate Easter. The Brunch menu offered a great variety of items. We chose the Nicoise Salad, which was topped with the fish of the day - swordfish. It was grilled to perfection and delicious. I look forward to another visit, when I will definitely try the French Toast of the day. Very attentive service and a wonderful Easter experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed the casual atmosphere with a level of sophsication. Made of a relaxed feeling, yet a good vibe of people surrounding you. We had the burrata appetizer which was extremely fresh laying in a bed of greens and cherry tomato. We all enjoyed some authentic Italian pastas as the main choice - I had the linguine bolagnese which I would recommend. And my friend had the orichette - another tasty dish. We also found a good selection of Italian Reds.

We had an amazing celebration at Quanto Basta--for our daughter's 21st birthday. We wanted a restaurant with great food/wine, service and variety on the menu--something for everyone. We weren't disappointed. The specials on the Valentines Day menu (ready for us a day early) offered an abundance of amazing options. We had veal, tenderloin, a lobster ravioli and a meaty pasta dish. The salads were all fantastic, and the four deserts we ordered (the first options on the menu) were outstanding. The server(s) were attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. I can' t think of a negative--wow! Just a fabulous spot--total of $340. before tip (include beers, wine, cocktails) is reasonable given the quality overall.

This restaurant is one of my top 3 in Toronto, for not only great food, but outstanding service as well. This time I was little than impressed with the service - Terry Lynne was not there and I feel her absence made for an evening of disarray and frazzled attention to detail. Our server, noticeable brand new, couldn't keep up with the demands of the evening and the women who took some more initiatives behind him was less than pleasant at times, almost sarcastic. We will definitely go back, but this is definitely one of those things where when the cat is away.......

I used to come to this restaurant when it was Lakes! It became one of my favorite dining establishments and one where I never had a bad meal. So I have been anxious to see how Quanto Basta compared. I can say that the service the night we were there was outstanding - that was my main concern as I had heard that there was a bit of an attitude - certainly not the case as our waitress was so attentive and friendly. The food was good but I would like to return to try some of their other dishes.

When your server tells you the plate is VERY hot, believe her!! And believe that the soup is VERY hot, too!! Far too hot!! Because today I am getting medical attention for a burned throat :-( Other than that….the food and service were good. However, next time I will order the Gazpacho!!

We have been back about 5 times in the past three months and have never been disappointed. The service is attentive, informed and friendly. The menu always has lots of things of interest and we keep coming back for more. We've sampled most of their fish offerings and several of their appetizers. We'll be back again.

We had a wonderful meal and the service was friendly and professional.
The stuffed zucchini flowers were delicious. The mushroom bruschetta and the burrata were both very tasty.
We all had the Cornish hen as our main, and it was by far the best I have ever tasted. The skin was very crispy and the meat tender and juicy!
We will return soon.
Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Food was satisfactory, other than risotto which resembled a large plate of undercooked rice...not risotto. Manager and server were both made aware of this and did absolutely nothing until after a third request to remove it from the bill. Rude comments, appalling lack of professionalism and customer skills. Disappointing.

I found the wine list extremely over priced. Appetizers were okay and the food was mediocre! I had dined at their sister restaurant before and found the food okay but not that great! Service was fine except for when paying for the bill and seeing mistakes in there! Then when we mentioned it, the hostess wasn't too happy about it and she was rather rude and offensive! I would not recommend this retaurant to anyone I know!
