It was one of the worst dining experiences I've ever had in my life. We were given an hour and a half before the next customers arrived and kept rushed for the entire dinner. We were literally kicked out of our table and I have never had such a terrible dining experience in the restaurant
Excellent food and service. Homemade gnocchi to die for!! Will definitely go again.
Outstanding service. Really enjoy the atmosphere and the servers care about the menu. The food never disappoints.
Made me feel like I was in Italy. Great service outstanding food.
Had reservations made and a couple days before, I got a call from I am assuming the owner/manager to confirm if indeed we were coming as they were getting alot of no shows. Understandable. However he went on to say that because we had 6 people we needed to spend a minimum of $250 (we were going to spend more than that regardless, but that wasn't listed anywhere before). He also started to guilt trip me about how business was bad due to Covid and that is why I had to assure him we will spend over $250. Right off the bat, that left a sour taste, but decided to go into the place with an open mind. When we arrived, the place was packed, that they actually had to tell a table the needed to leave in order to get us in. We sat down, and the whole time we felt like we were being rushed (not by our waiter - the only good part of the evening) but by the busboy and other people. Everytime coming and trying to get rid of our plates even though we still had appetizers on the table. Finally the food. I ordered the Chicken Parm and let me say it was the most sorry excuse for a chicken Parm I had ever had. Feels like it was a frozen dinner. And the penne that came with it? Horrible! My friends said their food was not that great as well. The only thing good was the Dessert. After the bill had been settled we were trying to enjoy the rest of our drinks and they came and asked us to leave to get more people in. I thought they were getting alot of no shows and it was wasting space? Seems to me they were quite busy and didn't have a problem with no shows. Anyways, this is probably one of the very few/limited times I was ever disappointed with a restaurant in Toronto, and would definitely never return. The saving grace to give this place 2 stars rather than 1 is our server. Young, Caucasian Male with brown hair (didn't catch his name due to being rushed at the end), but his service was excellent!!
A wonderful dinner and evening.
Highly recommend the restaurant
Just one suggestion.
Suggest Italian bread when ordering bread as a paid item. Received small amount of French bread.
Amazing chicken parm and gnocchi! Was the perfect Italian meal…friendly staff, will definitely be back!
I’ve been here several times and always super pleased but last night your pasta portions were definitely quite smaller. Kind of disappointed as we were celebrating a birthday
Brilliant, cosy little spot for Italian food. Highly recommend
Staff were super attentive and food was incredible
Food was great! Really enjoyed the ambiance, definitely will come again.
Service was nice but we felt a little rushed — like they wanted to quickly serve us and get us out.
If you want real authentic Italian food, this is by far the best in town! Service is fantastic!
Food was great, servers were nice, but seemed a little stressed or just bad vibes? The lighting and music was bad, way way too bright for dinner and sounded like clothing store/mall music. Felt like a cafe.
Love this place!
Amazing food and staff. You must try the Tiramisu!! To die for!
Intimate and friendly spot on King West with attentive service; great for a date or with a small group!
Awesome as always!!
Good was amazing!
Exceptional service thanks to Giovanni. We’d return on the service alone. Thankfully the food was exactly what we were hoping for and great price to food quality.
We had the Caesar salad, calabrese pizza, lasagna, mushroom tagliatelle, & tiramisu.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Excellent authentic Italian food, great atmosphere inside
Pretty shocking that members of the kitchen staff/chefs did not wear a mask at all.
Not great Italian food.. the butternut squash ravioli was hard and cold and the butter sauce was not buttery.. like at all. It tasted like broth.
Amazing Italian food at a reasonable price. Everything is freshly made and so flavourful. A great find and would definitely return!
The restaurant was nice and cozy, the servers were great and the service provided was excellent. The food was amazing and my boyfriend and I will come back! 💕
Service is great, food is delicious and the restaurant is very cute.
Food and service is amazing!! Best gnocchi I’ve ever had!!
Incredible food and fun, lively atmosphere!
Would go back in a heartbeat.
This was my first time the service was outstanding. The food here is top shelf. I will be back. Hopefully they can grab a few decanters before I’m back. Great spot !!!
Such a cute spot! Loved it :)
Great food, great wine, great service
Amazing food, great service, and a really nice vibe here. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
I loved eating here! The food and vibe was amazing
Service was great. Entrées very good. Found the carpaccio was not very thinly sliced and very tough. Pizza was meh.
Patio needs at least one heater. Maybe a proper garbage can in the bathroom instead of a bucket. No toilet paper in any stalls when we went at 10pm
I would return.
Great place Amazing Food and very kind service
The pasta was undercooked. The music was so loud that I couldn’t hear the waiters speaking or have a conversation with my friend.
Hi I would have made a new dish if I knew
Arrived on time but table was late due to earlier diners but were looked after ok while waiting. Sauce for carbonara was separated and meal salty. Other dinners with our table were ok. No tiramisu available for dessert despite being on the menu. Overall ok and average could have been better
LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PLACE! The service, the people, and especially the FOOD 😍🥰🤤 best Italian food I’ve ever eaten here in Toronto ❤️
Mediocre. Some dishes were okay, the seafood pasta was awful: rubbery shrimp and mussels that were still closed. Well meaning, friendly but amateur service. Wine list was embarrassing. Definitely will not return.
Incredible service! Giovanni went above and beyond to get us a better table!! The food was incredible! Def going back again and again! The Gorgonzola pear pizza, the calamari and the prosciutto burratta were my faves!
Was served raw chicken. Staff didn’t seem to phased by it. Was told it wasn’t cooked because “the piece was thicker than normal” although the chicken was completely raw on the edges as well as throughout as if it had just been breaded and plated raw.
Once again we are sorry that this happened. We immediately made you another plate and gave you and the other two ladies free dessert and coffee. What else would you like us to have done?
