Via Allegro serves as Toronto’s landmark restaurant location thanks to its classic dishes and 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.

Winner of the wine spectator, Grand Award, one of ninety seven in the entire world.

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 service and Ambience were Amazing! The Seafood was undercooked and there was no garlic in the butter to dip the Lobster in. However, we will be back.

    Food was great, tasty, fresh and delicious. I was disappointed by the service. When we walked in the maître d' Sarah was amazing, she took our coats, directed us to the bar so we can wait for our table, and when our table was ready she came and informed us and took us to our table. Ambiance was amazing, nice music, noise level moderate, looks like everyone was having fun. Our food took really long to come and there was not much communication from the waiter to us regarding wait time. By the time the food arrived, it had gotten a bit cold well the rack of lamb got cold. While we were eating, not once did the waiter came and asks if we needed anything. We had to get his attention twice to for him to come to our table. When I made the reservation, I called the restaurant to let them know that it was our 15 year anniversary and to have like a dessert or something brought to our table after dinner, but they forgot.

    Entire experience at Via Allegro was superb. Impeccable service from walking into the door, well taken care of by Arthur. Every dish was well presented, delectable flavours, all spot on. Vast whiskey selection, fun to try drams we've never had before. Wasn't sure if we should take a chance on an Etobicoke restaurant instead of going downtown TO but so glad we did. Definitely recommend.

    For an authentic old school feeling of eating out as a treat, this is the place. Service is very good. There is an air of sophistication that is sorely missed in most trendy new restaurants these days.

    The food, service, and vibe was incredible. I loved having a team of servers that too care of us, there was always someone making sure we were topped up and taken care of without being repetitive. It was my first time celebrating a friend for her engagement and birthday and I will be back with my husband. I have a feeling this might be our new regular spot.

    We didn’t love the table by the door and husband uncomfortable the whole dinner (his chair was very low and not the correct height for the table -lower then the other chairs so he sat on a cushion?!). For fine dining everything needs to be spot on. The food was very good. Steaks great but not as good as Jacob’s steakhouse downtown. Spaghetti sauce was impressive. Caesar salad better at Jacob’s also. A nice dinner out but not 5 stars.

    Staff - attentive to the table and each dinner. Food - was very good. I had salmon, I forgot to tell them keep it to medium rare, it was well done. We had the perfect seat where the family could hear each other. Love the pallet cleanse between meals. We have been going to Via Allegro for many years and it never disappoints. Thank you for the champagne to celebrate my husband's birthday.

    Our food was excellent, the waitress was not as nice, argued with our guest about chopping the ceasar salad and explaining that it didn't need to be done, we wanted it chopped, after that she was rude. Made us feel not welcomed!

    Three couples went to Via Allegro to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We advised we were celebrating and asked for a nice table. We were disappointed to be placed at a table that really had no ambience. We were asked to confirm the reservation twice and did. Also disappointed we were not even offered a glass of prosecco to toast to our anniversary. Food is very good here; service was adequate. All in all, the experience could have been better.
