We were highly impressed with the level of creativity, presentation, and taste in the Italian cuisine at Ardo. The service was charmingly sullen, but quick and effective. It has become one of our favourite Italian restaurants in Toronto.

A bit too noisy for conversation, the tables are too close together and the chairs are uncomfortable. Food good but overpriced for such a low quality design.

Outstanding start to finish. Each of the dishes we had was excellent in its own right. Insalata di mare was perfectly cooked and doused with lemon and olive oil. Pizza special with fontina, bufala and coppa was best pizza I’ve had in a long time. Can’t wait to go back.

My wife and I eat out a lot, but because we’re Italian, we are very selective in the Italian restaurants we try. Ardo is by far, the best Italian spot in the downtown area that we’ve tried in recent years. The owner and staff, many of whom are from Italy, are great. Welcoming, informative, helpful etc. The pastas are amazing and all made in house and the wine (we went with Sicilian Reds), recommended by the owner were amazing. We will be back for sure!

Lunch meeting. Pasta alla Norma very subtle, with no intense flavourings. Pasta cooked to an ideal. Nice Czech pilsner on draught. Good Service.

Some of the boldest flavours the Toronto Italian food scene has to offer, however had I not ordered the $7 bread, I probably would have left hungry after sharing two appetizers and having a pasta as a main each. Two cocktails, tax and tip, dinner for two $169. Seafood salad was delicious, burata, you cannot go wrong with a ball of fresh cheese.

Server was a little hard to understand. Asked to bring us bread (which we thought was complimentary) and came back with bread and olives which we were charged for despite mentioning we thought they were complimentary. Friends have had poor experiences here recently as well so will likely stay away

I have recommended it several times; however this last time was lacking the quality of the pastFirst,I had to wait for the hostess to finish her personal conversation; then she couldn't find my reservation..We were relegated to the most backward table even tho I had reserved 2 weeks ago. My guest was not impressed
