    Would not recommend their pastas. Truffle shaving for $35 come served on plate, with zero favour.

    Dining at Via Allegro Ristorante was a fantastic experience. The Burrata and Prime Striploin were standout dishes, offering a mix of creamy textures and rich flavors. The Bolognese was rich and so good. Each dish was not only delicious but presented with great care. Highly recommend for an unforgettable culinary experience!

    Went for Valentine's Day. Although a great intimate restaurant, we had booked for the atrium and we did not get the atrium upon arrival, as they were prioritizing the atrium for the Valentin's Day tasting menu. If the restaurant was going to do that they should have called to checked with all customers that had the atrium booked. Not terrible but very mediocre and incompetent customer service.

    I've been going to Via Allegro for many years now and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. Went again with my wife this Valentine's Day and we were twenty min late for the reservation but they held the table for us. Thank you! My wife took a chance and ordered the venison and honestly it was out of this world; incredibly tender, tasty and not at all gamey. I had the mushroom/truffle risotto and it was perfection on a plate. Our waiter was amazing too; attentive, friendly and utterly professional. An altogether enjoyable experience, as always, at Via Allegro and I have no hesitation recommending the restaurant to anyone looking for fine dining with excellent cuisine, a comprehensive wine list and a warm ambiance at a reasonable price.

    It is rare when all aspects of a dinner align nicely. Allegro offered just such an experience: A warm welcome, a ready table, a stylish, relaxing and quiet environment, an outstanding wine list and first rate food. I heartily recommend the rabbit dish. Wendy Votto is the in-house sommelier who is charming and most helpful. She also took it upon herself to show us a bit of the behind the scenes of this wonderful restaurant. Like her, numerous staff have been with Allegro for years and the enjoyment in working there shows in their approach to customers. Open Table has put Allegro in the high cost category, which I only half agree with. A generous dinner for two with a bottle of wine amounted to CAD$ 230 plus tip, which is not expensive and furthermore constitutes a high value for the experience provided. Needless to say we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would like to return.

    Ordered the chocolate dome dessert for 6 people at $75. After the big production with the dried ice the server poured cold water on it, completely ruining it. Did not offer to replace the dessert, left the soggy mess sitting in front of us and told us he’d take 20% off the dessert. We were somewhat regulars here but will not be returning. When questioned about not removing the entire dessert charge he did take it off. It was super disappointing that this was not automatically done and quite clear they don’t value loyal customers.

    When we sat down at our table, the wait staff had not greeted us, provided us water or anything. We waited about 15 mins before another waiter noticed and jumped in to give us water and take our order. The waiter that served us was courteous and friendly, he was very attentive and great overall. We had forgotten about the initial experience as we were going to leave due to not being served. The appetizers were great but when we got our main dishes, 1 of them had an issue but right away they fixed it and gave us a replacement immediately. They gave us a complimentary drink at the end as a thank you for dinning, apologized and took us on a tour of their new patio. Overall it was a very good experience (even with the hiccups). Restaurants make mistakes from time to time but it’s how they recover and treat you that matters the most. Do I think the drink prices for cocktails are a bit overpriced (of course) but you’re going for the atmosphere and the food is great. Great place for a special evening. Would come again.

    Lovely dining - in a variety of settings. Food is delicious - expect more for the price - eg salad was very special - more pears and cheese would have added interest. Love the flavors on the pizza. Bread is delicious. Superb service.

    The service was unexpected, we were the only with the kids in restaurant and they are small, so was feeling uncomfortable as they were making noise. But staff didn't say anything about the noise and they behaved and talked nice with the kids. Food was not topnotch but was tasty, it's just my take on the taste, may defer from person to another. Ambience is as you see in the pictures, well maintained. All in all we as family had great time.
