    My partner and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary there because we love Italian food. Everything, including the food, service and ambience, was fantastic until we requested the bill. When we checked the total, we discovered that the amount was wrong becuase there was around $150 extra; appareantely they mixed 2 tables in our bill. So, we requested a new bill, and finally it was correct. Another picturesque thing about the restaurante is the fact that when you pay by card, the machine asks about the tip, something absolutely common in a restaurant, but it offers 3 options starting from 25%. Why should we be induced to choose between 3 overpriced choices?

    Great food and service! The staff was corteous and attentive and the food incredibly delicious. My wife tried Northern Italian cuisine for the first time and she loved it. I’m glad we have a restaurant like Stelvio in town; it’s a nice contrast to all the Southern Italian restaurants.

    Food was in small portions and high prices. Normally that would be fine if it tasted phenomenal, but it was no better than a Kelsey's.

    We came here for a meal on our last night in Canada before flying home to London. The wine is very overpriced, the food was served tepid and the pasta was quite hard (not al dente). One meal (the pork) arrived a good 5 mins after everyone else’s and wasn’t particularly well cooked. The service was ok but no apology for the wait. It was really underwhelming and as we eat out a lot we are aware of what constitutes good value (£ and ££££) and this was not!

    We we're really disappointed in our experience at Stelvio. The restaurant itself is absolutely beautiful, the round table concept is fantastic and ensured that all 6 of us could socialize. The ambiance was great and the space felt nice and intimate. The pork cutlet and spinach was fantastic and a great sharing option for the table. This rating I give this restaurant is based on the food and service. The waiter when reading the specials, advised there were 2 sauces for the gnocchi for the daily special that we could opt for but failed to mention it would be double the price of the other gnocchi options on the menu. We should have asked in all fairness, but it seemed as simple as a sauce. Both ravioli dishes ordered to the table we're undercooked and dry. The waiter advised we were not the only one's to complain about this issue. What the waiter said was great sharing portions; such as the gnocchi, absolutely isn't. Another guest ordered the rabbit and left most of it as it was dry and overcooked. Another issue we had was the wait between the courses- we waited 45-50 minutes after the appetizer to get our mains. When I asked if it was normal for the gap in courses, the waiter advised me they we're very busy. Lastly- a gratuity was added to our bill without even being advised. After the experience we had- it's safe to say we wouldn't have tipped so graciously, but the decision was made for us beforehand. I will say that the rabbit and one ravioli dish was removed from our bill. Overall- aside from the ambiance and the appetizers, I would not return to this restaurant and do not see the value in dining here.

    Went on a quiet Sunday for an anniversary and wow was this place ever amazing. The service was nothing short of amazing and the food was spot on. Got the cheese board and the arancini to start then finished with the special which was gnocchi with italian sausage topped with truffle and the squash tortellini. They were both really good, but the squash tortellini, oh my god, it was perfect. The best pasta i've ever tried.

    Honestly this was probably one of the worst meals I’ve had in a while. The food was really underwhelming, one of the dishes I ordered had virtually no taste. The staff was polite and the layout was fine. It was genuinely just the food that made me leave this review.

    We took friends for dinner here and it did not disappoint. The room is well appointed and comfortable; menu offers lots of selection; servers are knowledge and made excellent recommendations. We felt very well looked after and the food was delicious. The standout dishes were buckwheat fritters, a gnocchi special with sausage and truffles, potatoes, and the elephant ear pork schnitzel, and Affogato for dessert (although that being said, there wasn’t anything we tried that we didn’t enjoy). We were a group of four and ate family style sharing everything - that was indeed the way to go. While we tried two bottles of different wine that turned out to be very good, the wine list isn’t extensive and the guys (who love wine) said that they wished there was more selection (just a note but not a reason not to return). Would most certainly book again in future.

    We had a birthday and we were 14 people (they managed to seat us all together which was amazing). HOWEVER, the food is bad. I’m trying so hard to be constructive about it but literally 14 people said it’s bad (it’s so bland even after having added salt, pepper and parmesan) it still tasted like plain pasta. 0 checking in from the waiter to see how everything was going. Manager came to speak to us and to tell us it’s northern Italian food that we’ll need time to get used to.. and the cherry on top? They brought small plates minutes before bringing the birthday cake so the birthday guy knew there was a birthday cake coming which was so frustrating.

    Food just was not worth the price. Had polenta and sausage dish. Not properly cooked or seasoned. I have never returned food before this was the first time. Staff replaced with a bowl of gnocchi that was 17$ and there were 10-15 gnocchi. Just very expensive and not worth the price.

    Food and wine felt quite overpriced for quality. The spezzatino was well worth it, though definitely felt like it was at the upper end of acceptable price, like wise the sciatt was good and likely the most appropriately priced item we ordered. But the pasta seemed very highly priced. The pasta quality was good, but there was a very distinct lack of sauce that made it feel very overpriced. At $120 for two people for dinner and drinks, I can't really recommend it when so many other amazing restaurants are nearby. The food seemed quite authentic, but not better then some of the less authentic options.
