    Danico is an experience unto itself. It is like no other. From the moment you step through the centuries old double doors you’re transported to a unique tasting experience that will leave you wanting to come back. The staff are lovely, attentive and polite. The sommelier is knowledgeable, helpful, approachable and keen to augment the tasting experience. The food is beyond what you’ve ever tried. It’ll transport you to another dimension leaving you talking about how the next course could never outdo the previous one … and then it does !! Thank you Danico for everything!

    Loved the tasting menu. We went with the white truffle feature and Kobe Wagyu, man was that worth it. great wine selection, if you love a good older vintage wine you will be happy with the selection. The Room is stunning and service was amazing. Will definitely go back.

    We just flew in from New York for the weekend and wanted to try something special. Found DaNico by chance, and I've to say one of the best experience in years. Although they offer contemporary Italian food, they still respect the tradition. Nice wine list with great producers. Our server was great and made the difference surprising us with a little gift for our anniversary. Will be back next time we are in town. Bravo!

    Their service was absolutely amazing. I went with my husband for his birthday and because I was pregnant, the chef was able to make adjustments in the tasting menu for me. Amazing to be able to go out for fine dining and have safe pregnancy food options available! Food tasted amazing and I cant recommend this restaurant enough!

    The theme of the food was a bit scattered. I did not get it was Italian unless someone told me. The space was nice but it was too dark made me feel super sleepy half way into my meal. Some of the food was okay but overall the food was not memorable. Some flavours over power than others. Also, some dishes just didn’t make sense in flavour wise.

The experience is next level and if you have not been it is a "MUST EXPERIENCE MOMENT" Chef Daniele is very welcoming and very passionate about his work and food. Thank you foe the wonderful experience and Jessica and Mirko were amazing to deal with and very knowledgeable. Bravi Ragazzi!!!!!

    We did the tasting menu with premium wine pairing and everything was very good. The only critique I would have is that the wine pourings were very small compared to other similar establishments. Overall, a welcome addition to Toronto's fine dining scene.

    Incredible experience! Highly recommend. Chef Daniele and team create dishes that are both visually appealing and creative. Italian dishes are enhanced with some Asian influences. For example, wagyu with wasabi mayo or a matcha tiramisu dessert. Housed in an old bank at Bathurst and College, they did a wonderful job with the decor and design. It’s definitely worth checking out!

    From the moment you walk through the giant wooden door, you are immersed in a luxurious experience. The food, the service, the ambiance was exquisite. I have eaten at many Michelin Star restaurants and this meal did not disappoint. The chef has outdone himself once again with a menu that is out of this world. Very nice touch at the end of the meal for my birthday. 10/10 would recommend this dining experience.

    Amazing food, beautiful restaurant and had an exceptional experience. The valet parking made the visit convenient from the start. We opted for a la carte dining, and the food was not only beautiful but also incredibly tasty. Our servers were very friendly. The “mesmerizing” washroom and the wine vault were delightful additions to the atmosphere. To top it off, we ordered dessert and were pleasantly surprised with a complimentary dessert from the chef. They were very nice, and it truly made the evening special. I highly recommend this restaurant for a memorable dining experience!

    Possibly the best michelin style experience in Toronto! The service and value for money is top notch! I was thoroughly impressed with everything from the bread service to the impeccable amuse bouche and the wine service is brilliant as well. The duck, the sphagettoni and the wagyu were brilliant as well as the mackerel, tortellini and goat! Special mention to the highlight of the evening for us, the DESSERTS . Legendary flavours and mouthwatering combinations! Impeccable presentation overall and a special shoutout to the strawberry panna cotta which was just perfect. Chef Daniele and his team truly are the ones to watch, what a night! Cannot wait to return and try the rest of their offerings!
