Via Allegro serves as Toronto’s landmark restaurant location thanks to its classic dishes end equally warm, classy interior. The upscale eatery affords diners plenty of Italian flair in both atmosphere and flavor. Via Allegro spares no expense to provide diners with bold Italian motifs combined with the innovation of modern design. For classic pasta and risotto dishes, check out the golden spoon risotto, risotto del squid, pheasant cavatelli and the del nord tortellini. For a more classically inspired entrée, you will enjoy the ecstasea grill, seafood classico linguine, whole fresh fish branzino or the venison rack. Make sure you also try out the Tuscan roasted rabbit, which happens to be a favorite among dinners at Via Allegro.

The hostess no complaints! There was an extensive wine list to choose from. We started with the “Italian fish delicious/would order again! My partner enjoyed the seafood pasta (stellar) and I indulged in the gnocchi (I prefer my gnocchi to be be larger). It was a wonderful night out however; I don’t necessarily agree with the prices. I’ve had some better dishes for a better price (but again - inflation!) Thank you for a great night :)

Our main course took about an hour or more to arrive and waitress did not check in to let us know what was going on. We constantly had to get up and walk over to the waitress or waiter to inquire about our food, the bill. Our cups were not were not refilled with water. The waitress essentially just disappeared the entire time which was very disappointing.

While we were very patient and understanding about reopening challenges, the service and value for what we paid for was below standard. On top of that the pizza oven wasn’t working which wasn’t known till we sat down.
