Good and excellent food and service.
Great food and knowledgeable staff. Felt very safe and dined inside.
Excellent food. Servers were great and knowledgeable. We enjoyed every savoury moment. Planning our next visit ASAP.
I found a hair in my food, let the server know and nothing was done about it. Everything else was great!
Amazing experience overall. It felt a bit rushed towards the beginning and end.
Food and wine was great! Service was a little disappointing. After ordering our drinks and food our waitress disappeared for the entire rest of our meal. Didn’t receive side plates for our starter, poured our own wine, and nobody even checked in to ask how our food was (luckily everything was delicious!)
Eventually, we had to flag someone down so we could get our bill. When I brought it up when paying they did apologize and mention that they worked on a tip pool. So they all kind of work together.
Suggestion to management: Even when you work on a tip pool, waiters should have assigned sections and tables they take care of. Also, if you‘re moving my waitress from the patio to a section inside during my meal, that should be communicated. Our waitress should have introduced us to our new waiter.
Limited menu but it was delicious and a great place to catch up with friends! Had the hamachi crudo and grilled peaches on crostini - both were to die for!
Delicious seasonal and interesting food. Lovely ambience. Excellent service.
Right next to the street, but that’s the hazard with outdoor dining right now, Risotto was strangely sweet, but still good, slightly unexpected, got the beignet for dessert, that was amazing
Awful experience. Food was not tasty whatsoever. Multiple menu items out of stock. Waiter seemed to be extremely busy and was not attentive. Overall, value was almost non-existent. I would have rather stayed home a cooked a meal. Will never come back.
Food is good here but a lil overpriced for its value and quality. Menu is also a lil bit limited.
The meal didn’t stand out in my mind as being memorable but it was good I guess. Outside was a bit chilly so that took away from the ambiance. Would of been good if they had heat lamps.
We had a wonderful time, perfect ambience, service was great and attentive, food fantastic, beautiful wine. Our server was personable and great. Not over priced. Our second time here and will go back. Carbonara and peach ricotta crostini and gnocchi were highlights.
Everything was good except we chose a really bad tasting wine with our meal.
Evetything was great- servers took care of even the most minor things. When I mentioned I only ate halal they took the time to inform me about all the ingredients that could potentially be non halal.
Food was excellent- could have been a tad more flavourful but that may have just been the dishes we ordered.
Overall, a wonderful experience!
Food and atmosphere was great. Everyone was physically distanced. Tables and seating were sanitized.
Wonderful patio. The carbonara was to die for. An excellent branching experience with poor ole watching and beautiful sunshine
Impeccable Service - Very attentive and friendly staff. Would recommend for date night or any other special occasion.
Tyler/ Trevor??? Was excellent
Amazing food and atmosphere despite the pandemic situation.
The service was slow and the pasta was cold.
Totally different vibe than the original location on Queen East, but equally fabulous food and fun.
Wonderful Dinner! Exceeded all expectations! We were worried about How Would Things Be? now during CoVid. The outdoor seating was perfect! Well spaced out. The Service (Sam especially!) was Top Shelf! Staff went to great lengths to make sure everyone felt comfortable. And the food was Delicious !! Wonderful to be Out! 10/10 perfect night!
Quiet brunch. Great experience. Highly recommend this spot.
The appetizers were lovely and small, patio was nice, server was great!
Great food! The carbonara was amazing!!!
Drinks for two
My friend and I went to Ascari for drinks on a Sunday evening. We were hoping to get some cocktails, but the menu was very limited. Our waiter said they could custom make a sangria for us. So we obliged. The sangria was average. Whilst sitting on the patio we were contemplating getting some appetizers. The menu was so limited, and none of the options were particularly appealing. Due to the lacklustre menu we made a reservation for a restaurant next door while still at Ascari.
When our waiter brought the bill, it cost $18 before tax for one 300ml cocktail. Welcome to King West.
Overpriced and average. Will not be returning.
Exemplary service and a good vibe
Great first time experience. Food was tasty and great service
Everything was incredible. Top to bottom. Highly recommend. The care that goes into the ingredients and presentation was beyond expectation.
I came to Ascari for a casual dinner with a friend. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Service was prompt and attentive. From start to finish I enjoyed the meal. The menu was limited due to the pandemic so I recommend viewing it online to make sure it suits you. I will definitely come back when they are able to serve a full menu. The only reason ambience received 4 stars was because I’m not really a outdoor dining person. Cheers!
Food was terrible and overpriced. The bench I sat on ruined my white shorts.
Terrible seating accommodations. Got a table right at the curb of the road, next to the cyclist lane and a bunch of puddles. Disaster waiting to happen. We ended up having to leave.
Great food, friendly staff. Would definitely come back!
One of the best Italian restaurants in the city! We have been dining at Ascari Enoteca (Leslieville) many times but were happy to hear that another branch was opening on King St, closer to where I work. The food is always delicious and the menu changes often based on seasonal ingredients. Their pasta dishes are always amazing. They continually surprise us with their modern take on classic dishes like carbonara and cacio e pepe. We look forward to dining here as often as possible!
Service staff were attentive and professional. Food was competent. Fairly light on the portions for the price attached. We all felt that the menu was missing a page. it was alright but we wouldn’t rush back.
I did sunday sugo for my birthday! Loved it!
Very good food and service by servers, fairly quick with food and good recommendation would definitely go back
