Amazing food! There’s never a bad dish, the pasta is elevated comfort and the wagu beef was ten out of ten! Can’t wait to go back after the covid lock down.

Spent a Friday evening at Osteria Rialto and it was great. Their outdoor patio is warm and the ambiance is great. The food was amazing. We basically tried everything on the menu and all was fantastic.

Yum. Beautiful patio, which is serving them well with covid. Excellent service, delicious food. Neighbourhood gem.
But it is a little pricey.

Fantastic experience start to finish. Classic Italian dishes done on a level I haven’t experienced in Toronto. Pasta cooked perfectly, vegetable dishes perfectly fresh and delicious, and one of the best desserts in the city (the chocolate tart, I highly recommend it with the Etruscan amaro). Their caponata served in a roasted eggplant was probably my favourite dish and a perfect example of creativity within a still classic mode of Italian cooking. A truffle pasta was decadent without a hint of cloying truffle oil that usually ruins such dishes, but a vegetable focused macaroni dish was equally excellent with fantastically textured pasta in both. Wine offerings were great with both a good selection of classic wines and some surprised for an Italian place, like a deep Burgundy selection and some phenomenal Loire chenin by the glass. Can’t wait to come back.

Went for my partner’s Birthday with another couple and had a fantastic experience on their beautiful covered and heated patio. The bread and eggplant dish were standouts as well as the mushroom pasta.

By far one of the best dining experiences in Toronto. They make you feel like COVID isn’t even a thing. The food, drinks and service was outstanding. For a brief moment that night, you felt like things were normal again.

The food was well portioned, well thought out and delicious. There is a good variety on the menu without too much on the menu - meaning, they do a smaller amount of items very well.
The considerations for staff safety and Covid protocols were excellent.
Very friendly service.

The other night I had dinner at the bar and it was a 12/10 experience! The bar seating was comfortable and the staff were all so warm, welcoming, and engaged. The Wagyu Flatiron Steak was absolute perfection and the wine list had excellent value. I'd highly recommend the Barbera and Chenin! Thanks, Rialto team for such a great experience, I'll definitely be back soon!

Nice bar/restaurant. The menu is very small and niche so check you like something prior to going. The food was fresh and tasty, I just wish there were more options for me. Food and drinks were pricey for what it was though, not great value by any means but a classic Toronto standard.

Portions were more than generous and definitely could be split between two persons. Offering half orders of salads or mains would be a good idea.
