Great food, friendly staff, had to wait awhile to be seated even with reservations. One visitor had a gluten allergy. Could have been offered a non gluten substitute for the table bread. Gorgonzola pizza superb!

Bottle of wine much more expensive than buying 8oz glasses for the same volume of wine.

Enjoyed finding a new place to dine in Peterborough. Service was excellent. Appetizer was excellent and can't wait to try another.
Lamb shank was very tender and flavour was complimented by sauce and pea shoots. Can't wait to return to try other entrees and especially the pizza and salads. Have already recommended to friends and family.

The Open Table online reservation system works very well but could be improved with the ability to book beyond the current month. My first visit was for a birthday lunch for a friend who loves Italian food. We both enjoyed the veal cutlet sandwich & I LOVED the house salad. Great gelatos too! Our server was polite but friendly, attentive but didn’t rush us. Will definitely return!

Noon last Friday; glad i reserved online. Catherine, our server, was awesome; she was in tune with everything; she knew the menu, the specials, and how everything was prepared, and didn’t have to write anything down. My veal scaloppini was flavourful and I definitely recommend it.
In short, I will return and I’ve recommended this restaurant to my friends. It is well lit inside, the tables and chairs are comfortable, and it’s CLEAN everywhere ! First thing I do after being seated is wash my hands; if the men’s room is spotlessly clean then I’ll stay, if not, auf wiedersehen baby. Enough said, go there and be happy.

We really enjoyed our visit. The food and the entire experience was outstanding. My husband said that his dinner was the best food he’s ever had at a restaurant. So thanks so much. We will be back.

Service was slow for lunch time when people need to get in and out in an hour. Ordered the peach salad which was greens, grilled peaches and onion, with almost no dressing on it. The sweet potato soup was outstanding.

Last time i was there i ordered a Wagyu burger and it was raw (blue) in the middle. When i asked the server about it, he said it was supposed to be served that way. While i agree Kobi/Wagyu should be medium rare i didn't want it raw.

so overall - i would rate it as inconsistent in quality, with mediocre service

Nice ambience for Peterborough...nice decor, music, setting.
Pizza was completely different from last time...crispy and greasy like Pizza Hut but for twice the money. They have a beautiful pizza oven from Italy but not a pizza chef who knows how to use it.

The gorgonzola pizza was the best pizza I have ever tasted, absolutely amazing. I have been craving another ever since we had it. Will be going back again for sure (either for pickup or eat in).

Our server Sheena is one of the best server we have ever had anywhere! The food was delicious as always.
We had just driven in from Toronto where we stayed at The Hazelton and ate their restaurant One which was not good at all.
We highly recommend One Fine Food for every meal from Brunch to Dinner.

There should be a vegetarian pasta option beside risotto. Having said that my daughter had the ravioli minus the speck and it was delicious. Great pizza as always and super friendly servers.

Overall a very good experience. My husband and I were very happy to discover this restaurant while searching Peterborough restaurants on Google. Normally we venture to the city for our dining excursions but were thrilled to find a restaurant with local ingredients attached to a market and cafe.
The lighting is a bit too much like a cafeteria and I would suggest dimming it and adding some candles on the tables for the evening. The menu is lovely with wonderful gluten free options, homemade pizza, beautiful appetizers and a variety of mains and desserts.
My husband had the scallop to begin and I had the Burrata caprese. Both dishes didn't disappoint and were well plated and balanced in flavour. For our mains ordered a lovely seafood soup similair to a bouillabaisse and my partner a pizza. he absolutely raved about the pizza. My main was good with the seafood cooked perfectly yet the dish was a bit off balance with nothing to counter the acidic nature of the tomato and charred lemon.
Disappointments? The staff need to be taught high end service but are quite friendly and attentive ( little things like bringing sparkling water and leaving it on the table without opening it or pouring it ).
Biggest disappointment was being told that I could not order half of the dessert menu as the " kitchen was now closed". Would have been nice to been given a head's up or my preference ... kitchen has dessert available until the last table has ordered.
All in all a welcome addition to Peterborough and we will be back!

Yes but definitely not the pasta. We got 7 pieces of ravioli for $ 21 dollars. That’s $ 3 dollars per raviolli. Yikes! Although they decorated with olive oil and walnuts. I would say they used about 1 teaspoon of shaved walnut.

The pizza is always great here.

We come here often for the fresh and innovative food, reasonably priced wine selections and casual approach.
OFF is consistently a top choice in the Peterborough dining scene.

While the food was great - we didn’t enjoy the service. We felt like the waitress was rushing us to get out. We were rushed to make a decision on our order essentially as soon as we sat down. We weren’t given much time - if any- to enjoy our drinks before our food had arrived. Our plates and table was cleared immediately as we took our last bites. Our entire dinner was under an hour, we didn’t even have time to finish our drinks before we were done with the evening. Overall, the food was good, but I’m not sure I’d return given the rushed atmosphere.

This is the second time we have eaten at your establishment. This time however the food was not that exciting. The pasta was rather bland and the amount of beef cheeks was slim. The steak that was had was over cooked. The spaghetti dish also lacked a punch ..... a spice to give it a lift was definitely needed.
Desserts were ok, some originality was evident in presentation.

It's okay. Prices are high for what you get in Peterborough. I only got two small lamb chops for $36 and a tiny bit of side greens. The room is very noisy as there is no sound insulation - concrete floors and glass walls. It feels like sitting in a garage. However, the server was very nice and attentive without being intrusive.

I wanted to take my boyfriend for a nice dinner while I was in town visiting and heard great things about this restaurant. I was not disappointed. I haven’t had food, or service, this good in a really long time. We had the charcuterie board, extra flatbread, pizza, and cannolis. I would highly recommend these dishes to anyone. Our waitress, Valentina, was extremely friendly and on top of things. I am so glad we decided to try this restaurant and I will be back again.

As usual One Fine Food didn't disappoint! Great food (best in its style in the whole area). But what truly makes the difference is the service we receive each time, the smiley and efficient services makes it all. This time, Valentina was providing with our table service and she was fantastic to say the least. Thanks to everyones from the kitchen to the front desk and see you soon.
