We had a wonderful dinner as an anniversary celebration. The carbonara (homemade) was fabulous, and the pork cutlet was absolutely superb.

Adequate, bit inattentive service. Salad was forgotten--but ended up a highlight ast the end: and tries were also excellent. --meal was definitely overpriced.
It was nice to see what they're created out if the venue.

Amazing meal - everything was delicious. Servers were well informed about the wine and beverage list as well as serving size. We had the focaccia and carpaccio to start. Then shared the spicy carbonara along with the fiorentina steak (perfectly cooked) with corn on the side (addictive!) and roasted broccolini. Finished with grappa and the chocolate torta. Would highly recommend this amazing restaurant!

Lovely ambiance and tasty food! Menu is not extensive but changes seasonally. I highly recommend the Cotaletta di Maiale and the pesto pasta! Excellent chocolate torte on the dessert menu! Our table of 3 ordered 2 appetizers, 2 pastas, 3 mains, 1 side dish and 2 desserts (totalled to just under $90 per person before drinks). We left full, happy and look forward to returning when their Fall menu begins.

Our server was just terrible. She kept forgetting about us, we even had to ask the Sommelier for help twice . The food runners were more helpful. The Appetizers were BLAND, the main dishes were a but more bearable. In all actuality, I had the seafood pasta and it was quite delicious but the rice balls, I had to start lacked flavour. My friend had the bruschetta and it was overly saturated with too much balsamic vinegar. Add that to the terrible waitress & there’s definitely no need to return to this establishment. Why were there so many good reviews? Thank you to the sommelier for suggesting a good wine !

I’ve been wanting to visit since they opened, so was happy to finally get a chance. I wanted to come back the second I tried the focaccia, salty, crispy, fluffy cloud of heaven. The pasta dish was simple, elegant and tasty. Everything was just nicely executed. The restaurant has a great view from the second floor and is comfortable and lovely. A really nice retrofit to the theatre. Great spot, I wished I lived closer.

So…the location and the restaurant were good but there were some ambiance things that could have warmed it up a bit - like table lighting…way too dark. The food was ok but not great for the prices. The wait staff we lovely. Interesting adventure but it’s definitely a one and done for us.

Incredible service but NOT a place for vegetarians. Just a couple random bits and bobs to eat; the chefs were not willing to accommodate our requests for meat to be removed from dishes.

Such a great experience! The staff were all very polite, kind, and helpful.
The food was perfect portion size. We ordered bread and salads to share with for three people, on top of our meals. The restaurant also accommodated allergies (dairy) and made suggestions about gluten free options they had on their menu. They also had an excellent selection of wines. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Italian cusine.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner to celebrate our anniversary! We were seated on the second level balcony which offered a beautiful view overlooking the busy and lively streetscape. The food was fresh, and delicious and the wine list has some interesting choices focusing on Italy, Spain and Canada. The service was friendly and attentive, but allowed time and space for when I wanted to connect with my husband.

Just a lovely spot with very tasty food, excellent service, and great music that does not prevent conversation in a normal voice. An extensive wine list for those who want to explore bottles, and some desserts to die for!

The restaurant itself is very cute and and has a nice set up, both upstairs and downstairs patios are very inviting great ambience. I didn’t enjoy that we had to pay $15 each just to make a reservation, I think that’s a little much. The place was recommended by a friend and the food was fine, not many options, but tasty

Amazing experience at Osteria Rialto. We got seated upstairs, which is quieter, and enjoyed 4 dishes and 2 deserts. All were absolutely amazing. A “wow” at each spoon. The decoration is stunning, and the vibe really nice while the service is professional and friendly. Absolutely recommend.
