Autostrada is a place with a simple philosophy. Inspired by the casual osterie of Italy, the focus is on a simple menu where quality ingredients shine, regional wines that represent a place, and a room filled with warmth and bustle.

Simply the best spot to eat out in the city! Visited Autostrada for the fifth or sixth time since last fall and I'm wondering why I bother eating anywhere else! Amazing food and the team and the venue are so warm and welcoming! We've already booked in for next month.

We've made the Main Street Autostrada a regular stop and were thrilled to find that the quality -- in all respects -- has been shared with the W.Pender Street address. They're the same, and yet different. Menu is familiar enough; atmosphere is a little more olde worlde, a lot less moderne. Liked it a lot.

Fantastic! Unpretentious rustic homemade Italian. Great service. Would go again when craving Italian food!

This is an excellent restaurant. The food and the service are fantastic. But the room is not air conditioned and it got very warm.

Sarah the server tries to secretly add fees to the bill! Without asking, when she tell you she will bring a bread for you when you order a burrata, she adds $8-10 to your bill!! For a bread?! Seriously? Also she mistakenly adds much more expensive glass of wine on to your bill. Be careful. Everything else is good except the sketchy service

The food was amazing and the service was incredible! A little too warm inside was the only set back, but overall a great experience.

The menu has some simple classics that they do very well, such as the burrata and foccacia (recommend both of those together), and some that are more modern spins on italian/meditteranean food.
The wine list is large and features a good variety, with the wait staff being very helpful with the choosing to make sure that you enjoy what you're getting.
Fun atmosphere and a more intimate set up, but the restaurant is always a little warmer than would be most comfortable, both during the winter and the summer.

Could only have been a better dining experience if I possessed enough extra stomachs to have eaten everything on the menu and fresh sheet. Food, service, ambiance - tens across the board.

My Autostrada experience far exceeded my expectations.
The efficient seating service by the Duty Manager Scott was very welcoming.
Table service was exemplary.
As for the 3 courses I chose, each one was a taste bud explosion served with impeccable presentation.
Great wine list.

I cannot recommend Autostrada highly enough.

Congratulations to the Management and all the staff.

Hi there, we were a group of 4 people who were seated at a table/booth for minimum 6 which wasn't the best set-up & being able to hear each other. It was way too big of a space for 4 people. Thanks

Only thing I have to say is, those wooden chairs are super uncomfortable. With no air conditioning it’s even worse. But realistically I would just ask for the other chairs because the food is that good to go back over and over

The host had to nudge the previous guests off our table, but we got seated just a few minutes late. Service is quick and friendly. Ambiance is lively. We shared a Caesar salad to start and it was bright and lemony with lovely pieces of anchovy. Both our pastas were delicious and my lemon dessert is still making my mouth water. Highly recommend for a casual dinner or a celebratory date. Ticks all the boxes.
