Ovest cucina e Vineria Ratings and Reviews
This was my 2nd time at Ovest. The food and service is always excellent. The ambiance is wonderful and it is a great place to have dinner with friends, family or a spouse. Ovest always impresses me, and I highly recommend it!
Too loud WAY too loud. Food was good service was poor felt ignored throughout the entire evening
This restaurant never disappoints. There is great attention to detail and the home made food is evident that there are great chefs in the kitchen. Notable wine list and terrific for Christmas parties and special events. We love this place!
I'm avl regular and always have an extraordinary experience
Great service, our waiter was attentive and friendly the food was terrible! My wife and I cook better meals at home! Extremely disappointed given past reviews regarded this place so highly , that’s how we based our decision!
Great atmosphere, best authentic italian restaurant in Toronto. It has an affordable wine list too.
OVEST never disappoints...from the service to the food, always great.
Decent restaurant overall.. Good was ok not great. Very few patrons.
Excellent food and service. The restaurant was bust, but not too loud. Great ambiance.
This was a great find thanks to google great reviews. Staff amazing chefs food to die for it is a family run business very knowledgeable about the history of the vine cellar. 10 out of 5 stars 😁
Coming from an Italian family that only eats homemade food, this restaurant was like home. The atmosphere is amazing, very detailed and feels like you’re in a basement wine cellar in some spots with exposed bricks and wine racks everywhere. Great food, great service, and noise level was tolerable... couldn’t hear my partner at times, but was only due to more guests arriving and a sudden increase in music volume. Other than that, I will recommend this place to anyone and will return myself.
Great night at Ovest, Service was very good. Hope to see Ovest expand appetizer menu.
Excellent food and great ambiance at this Italian resto in King West. We were a group of friends meeting up from different parts of the city, and this was a great spot. Authentic and creative menu, many choices, good wine list and a happy, vibrant feeling. We would come back. There was a large group that arrived, seated nearby, as we were finishing our mains, so we opted for dessert and coffee out front at the outdoor seating, for quieter conversation, which we appreciated. Wonderful, thoughtful service as well.
The food was average and disappointing. Service was phenomenal however 5 stars.
Amazing staff. Delicious food.
I left my doggy bag at the table by accident and only noticed when I got home. When I called to see if they still had it, they informed me they had thrown it out already. BUT they insisted on making me a new batch of leftovers! I was blown away! When I returned to pick it up, they recognized me and handed over the bag and APOLOGIZED TO ME!! I was blown away by this service. Some restaurants still don't understand what good service really is but Ovest totally nailed it. Thanks for an amazing evening!
The food here is on point. Service was a bit slow and unattentive. We will return.
What an incredible dining experience! The food was absolutely spectacular and pleased my mother-in-law who is from Italy (and very picky with her Italian). All of the flavours were so fresh and well thought out. We really enjoyed the meal!
The food was further brought to life by the exceptional hospitality and service from the Ovest team. The Owner himself was there and made sure to come by our table to see how everything was going.
On top of that, the ambiance was the perfect blend of lively and zen for an intimate but fun dining atmosphere.
We cannot wait to go back and neither can my mother-in-law... which says a lot! :)
Highly recommend you check them out for the best Italian in the city!
Excellent appetizer platter and amazing cuttlefish ink risotto. Another great meal and excellent value.
A very good experience. Staff was very attentive and willing to help. Will return.
Food was great! Service not so much. Reservation was for 7:45 didn't leave until 10pm. Waiting way too long for food
Food was excellent - real authentic and great variety. Buckwheat pasta dish was so so but everything else was exceptional.
Great decor and atmosphere. Food and service were spectacular. Would recommend to everyone and anyone who has a love for good Italian food.
Amazing experience, great for a date nighg
Food was ok, nothing special. We both ordered pasta (Lamb ragu and Seafood pesto) and both were bland. Service was good and restaurant is nice. Overall I would not recommend.
If you're looking for good Italian food in the area...this is where you should go. Great food, fantastic service, and nice ambience.
Nice Place and service. Desert and appetizer were a bit expensive
So awesome - we'll be back! The food was AMAZING!!
Loved the artichokes and carpaccio :-P
all and all was a great dinner but they brought the wrong dish for my date, whom didn't want to complain and ate anyways. They took the dish off the bill so they did take care of us after!
Excellent Italian food with a personal touch! Feels like the staff truly cares and knows about good quality food!
I asked the waitress for salt, she said: "we don't do that here". I demanded to have salt on my table. I hate chefs who think their idea of seasoning is superior to others. Ironically, when the salad arrived it was so so so very salty that even I could not take it. I notified the waitress (who was extremely rude) and she said she would investigate. She did, and she said that we were right and that the salad was EXTREMELY salty. However, she offered no apologies or a replacement salad. The food was mediocre at best. The pasta was drenched in oil and the pizza was just ok. The ambiance was nice. But I will never go back, nor would I ever recommend it to others.
Second time visiting, and same great experience. This place has definitely become my go-to for Italian food as I'm always impressed with the impeccable service and the amazing food. Highly recommend this place to everyone
We had a fantastic meal. We did not know anything about this place when we booked it. The server was fantastic, recommended great choice of authentic Italian dishes, and made the evening a memorable one.
What a great surprise. Beautiful restaurant. Great food. Awesome service.
Still dreaming about the fried artichokes. The seafood risotto was awesome.
The homemade pasta was delicious. DAniel took care of us and it was a pleasure
Having him take us through the menu and the dishes.
I would definitely recommend this place and we plan on taking our family there.
We need to try the other dishes.
Great food. Just makes the cut value-wise. Would recommend for the comfort food and a semi casual outing.
Wonderful evening experience. Both my meal and the service were world class.
We had a great experience on the patio. Food was delicious, and the service was great. Definitely would come again!
We had a great meal. Service was excellent and the food was amazing! Highly recommend this place and will be back.
We sat on the patio on a warm June evening. The young Italian waitress was friendly and efficient. For starters we had sardines, burrata and deep fried artichokes. All 3 were delicious and plentiful. Our mains were pork scaloppine - 3 large pieces which were very tasty if a little tough; and gnocchi which was delicious. With all the dining choices in Toronto, this restaurant is one of the few that I would definitely return to.
Excellent pasta, ambience and service; I've already recommended this place to many friends. Will definitely be returning to try the pizza!
Exceptional service, many good comfort foods and great selections of regional Italian wines. Restaurant has a good vibe to it. Been there 4/5 times past 2 years.
