Ambience was acceptable as a roadside restaurant.
Service was good.
Found menu confusing. The choices for the primi, secondii did nt think were great...found placement strange..
The waitress addressed our request for a pinot noir by describing a $255 bottle of wine without warning us about the price..wife almost said yes..
The food was good but not excellent
Lotsa choice out there..pribsly wont return .

A wonderful night out post lock-down! We loved all the food and the service was excellent. I recommend doing the family-style approach and sharing the dishes. It gave us a chance to try more things.

There are very few restaurants in Toronto that make me want to go back a second time, but Osteria Rialto is one of them! The food was AMAZING and the drinks were wonderful as well. Lovely patio and great service. Highly recommend for your next meal out!

Would have been a solid 4 or 4.5 out of 5 for the experience, unfortunately it felt as though our server was overwhelmed. The food was cooked to perfection, and we ended up spending $400 for the 3 of us (one of our guests couldn’t make it), and I expect the service to match the quality of food and drinks. She seemed like she had to many tables seated at one time, and was behind on drinks/clearing plates/checking up on us.

For that reason 3/5, will try again but I hope to see better service next time, please add more support staff for your servers!

Fried Zucchini flowers and the mushroom rigattoni were excellent. Scallops were ok.

Service was excellent.

Overall a nice place for dinner.

One note is that it is a little expensive and the portions aren't huge.

Dinner for 2, two mains, 1 app, 2 cocktails and 2 wine was over $200 with tip

The food was good, but very small portions at high prices. The service was friendly and efficient. Our only gripe is that a very nice, but lengthy, presentation of the wine bottle and tasting was initiated by the server right after another staff member delivered our piping hot appetizers to the table, and we just had to watch them get cold as we discussed and tasted the wine. But, of course, they have to re-find the rhythms after being closed so long and we will definitely check them out again!

We were also surprised to find, in effect, only 2 mains on available.

Very happy that they were able to turn the music down when requested, so we could talk!

Had a mix up with the reservation being on the upstairs patio/street level, staff was very accommodating and even provided us a glass of sparkling wine to compensate. The food was fantastic and fairly priced, I recommend the mezze rigatoni! Staff was absolutely amazing, very knowledgeable and professional.

Gorgeous patio and really friendly staff. Unfortunately, they put my poor 6’4 boyfriend in an awkward spot blocking the door for the servers so he was a bit uncomfortable, but otherwise the service was amazing and the food lived up to expectations. The food was incredible, though would say $14 to add truffles was a bit overkill - didn’t really add any flavour to the dish if I’m being completely honest. Also we aren’t big drinkers but the wine list looked great, I can see that being enough reason for some wine lovers to come check this place out.

Lastly if you’re driving leave time to find parking!
