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?

The choices are so good I had trouble picking. The beet soup with crab cakes and caviar was delicious. My arugula salad toped with brocoletti was devine. My pasta dish was cooked to perfection. I had a lovely californian cabernet sauvignon and the carrot cake was moist and decadent. The service was impeccable. The decor is nice except for the black and white rattan chairs. Kinda tacky. They would look better outside. I also sat near the back and the smell of cleaner and bleach was competing with the aroma of the food. Hence the 4 rating as opposed to 5. Otherwise was great.

Attractive Italian eatery with a nice ambiance, excellent service and good food. Seating can feel a little cramped, and the long couch could be firmer.

The service was very very good and the food & wine perfect. Unfortunately we were there at the same time as a large, loud (20+) bday party right next to us. That didn't make the atmosphere enjoyable. But kudos to the staff for coming to see us and apologizing, moving us when possible and a complimentary dessert.

Fantastic from the moment we came in. Staff was so attentive without being in your face. Staff made good recommendations from the menu-both food and wine. The food was very good. My friend had the Risotto special and it was a lot of food for one. I ordered from the menu and portions were perfect. It can get a bit noisy if full but still would highly recommend.

Very good Italian food; excellent bruschetta and pasta dishes.

Service was a bit erratic; attentive at first but harder to get servers' attention later as it got busy. However, we were pleased to be seated as requested in the back corner where it is slightly quieter than the front.

Disappointed the white Italian wine we wanted was out of stock.

Will return to try other dishes!

Food is freshly made by an Italian chef. Mushroom soup was one of thd best we had ever tasted. We both had ravioli with vegetables. Delicious. Save room for dessert.

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 !

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.
