    We celebrated my husbands birthday. The service was attentive and kind. The staff were knowledgeable. I would call it fine dining except we were a bit chilly in the converted patio. The place is beautifully decorated.

    Osteria RialtoResponded on November 3, 2022Hi Ann! Thank you so much for your kind review and we pleased to hear that your husband had a lovely birthday! We have since added even more heaters to ensure the patio is warm and comfortable for all of our guests. We hope to host you again soon, Ann!

    Not your Nonna’s Italian. Uses local ingredients and traditional Italian flavors for a modern take on Italian cooking. Extensive wine list. Groups of 4 are best suited to getting the lost out of the sharing style menu.

    Why if only 2 tables are seated in the entire restaurant would you put them side by side - and once they arrived I could have dropped dead without my server noticing. Over priced good, bad service. There are much better Italian restaurants- and in the same area. Not worth it.

    Service and food both were not good. The food was meant for sharing, but portions were extremely small for the price especially too. The food didn’t taste amazing either, we got the rigatoni and ceaser salad and barely and dressing came with the salad and the sausage on rigatoni tasted funny

    One of the best new restaurants in Toronto! Atmosphere was sophisticated and fun and beside a very cool renovated movie house and wine shop. The food was excellent with a good wine selection and great cocktails. A lovely interior and covered patio. Went there for a birthday dinner and it was a special evening.

    From the moment we walked in to the restaurant it was stunning! The drinks and food were fantastic! I’d definitely recommend the steak and octopus and the pastas. The menu was very simple in terms of what the restaurant offered however between the 4 of us and trying a lot of what was on the menu, everything tasted AMAZING. Would 100% go back! Thank you for a great dinner and night out!

We celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary here and it was our first time at the restaurant and needless to say we will be back 100% in the future to try all the pasta dishes they make! Loved it.

    Was going to a concert next door at 7PM so rez was at 6PM when the restaurant opened. We got there 5:50PM and were turned away since they were not open yet. So, we went across the street for a coffee. Got called at 6:02PM on my cell asking if were we going to make our rez. WTF! Really! Had to ask for cheese for our pasta. They did not have cheese. Saw them running around trying to find the cheese. Finished 3/4 of our pasta before the cheese got to our table. Just a lot of painful little avoidable things that irritated what would have been a pleasant dining experience into something annoying. It was regretful because we both really enjoyed everything else about the meal. The staff was pleasant and professional but prone to a series of unfortunate SNAFUs. Above all, the food was really good! No problems there. Lovely restaurant, a great setting and a fantastic location. I could see that without the above problems that this could have been an amazing experience. Unfortunately, I cannot help but focus on those shortcomings.

    This was my second time at Osteria Rialto. The menu had changed. The stuffed zucchini flowers and fried rice croquettes were great. The pasta and main not so much. Portions are small and the prices have gone up. The biggest price increase is in the alcoholic drinks. For a tumbler that was mostly ice and a splash of limoncello and mint we paid the hefty price of $19. Never again.

    This place is a gem in west Toronto downtown. A little pricey, but worth it for the quality of food, the attention to detail, the ambience, and the impeccable service. Surprisingly, I was able to get a reservation on relatively short notice but that will probably change, unfortunately, when the word gets around. I'm looking forward to the opening of the upstairs bar!

    Menu not interesting. Too many fried foods. Pasta really undercooked. Octopus tough and rubbery. Presentation on plate not attractive. Wine list skews to many high end bottles with limited selection of reasonably priced. This used to be an excellent restaurant. I wonder if the chef or management has changed.

    Community Italian with old world atmosphere and menu. Limited choices with excellent appetizers, small portions and large portions. Excellent Italian wine list. Could not be cleaner. We sat in a covered outdoor area. Easy to get there from major hotels by Uber. Much harder to get back but safe.
