Lunch: Minday-Friday 11:30 am -2:30 pm
Food and service is excellent.
Wonderful old world ambience. Great food and excellent service. Has joined my very small list of favourites I will return to again and again
EVOO is one of those places that you could drive right by, it has a narrow storefront nestled between other businesses on Avenue Rd.
It’s definitely worth seeking out. It’s got a cozy and intimate interior, perfect for “date night”. They make a decent Old Fashioned. The wine list is pretty impressive, and even the “by the glass” selections are diverse enough to satisfy any taste.
The menu is not broad, but there’s enough variety and it all sounds so delicious that deciding on just one dish was tough. The papardelle with lamb and the gnocchi with Gorgonzola cream sauce were delicious.
The server and the management made us feel at home.
Would dine here again in a heartbeat.
This is my boyfriends favourite restaurant. He always chooses EVOO for his birthday go to. The service and food were amazing as always.
Apps and my spouses ravioli were excellent. The penne vodka was quite tasteless. Great wine list and staff was courteous.
Good food. Great service. Excellent experience overall
Exemplary service, incredible food and lovely, authentic ambiance! EVOO is a new find for us - perfect for our special occasion. We’ll be back!
Soft lighting, jazz music playing in the background. Great staff that you can tell are committed to giving great service. Large open space, comfortable chairs. Hooks under the bar for ladies handbags is major plus.
Great food and good atmosphere. Excellent service provided by wait staff. I would gladly come back to sample more of the menu.
We had a great evening. We went in a group celebrating friends birthdays. Service was amazing, drinks were great and the food was delicious!! Would definitely recommend.
Delicious food in a lovely atmosphere! Will definitely be back!
Lovely establishment, staff very friendly the only complaint which was noted by my daughter that graduated from culinary management and currently works in a restaurant was the lack of clearing tables. Unused finished items where not moved leaving the table cluttered during various periods. Besides that wonderful experience.
Food was great! Service was greater! Would totally go back again
Tremendous food - creatively prepared and plated. Notable wine list. We had a group of 8 people at our table and noticed 2 anomalies in our bill (extra bottle of wine and a dessert that was returned). It was an honest mistake on a very busy evening but worth noting for being careful in reviewing your charges. Would I return there, absolutely. Dinner at our table ranged from pastas, seafood, steak, to their fish of the day and every dish was cooked to perfection. Food was prepared favourably without smothering it with too much garlic. Much care was seen by the kitchen staff who did an amazing job. Service was attentive but not hovering. A must try if you enjoy quality Italian cooking.
I loved everything about EVOO except the noise level; way too noisy for me. At one point, my brother in law was yelling to be heard
From the moment we walked in the door staff was amazing. Very comfortable,and welcoming. Well exlpanation of menu, and specials of the evening. Definitely will be are go to for a nice evening.
Great service and excellent food
Not my first time but always as impressed as I was back during my first time here. The food is wonderful and the staff are terrific.
The nicest staff. So pleasant and welcoming. Delicious food and great wine list. Will be going there more often. My new favourite place. They make everyone feel like a star.
Evoo is honestly the best restaurant I’ve been to in Toronto. The simplistic exterior fools you, but the interior is beautifully and intricately designed with a rustic charm. The food is impeccable and affordable - the lamb ragu and spaghetti al divo were one of the best pastas I’ve tried. The waiter who served us was warm and friendly and such a delight. He called all of us bellos and bellas which was adorable, and made us all laugh. He was extremely attentive to our needs and placed a candle on the dessert of the birthday girl without us requesting for it. Definitely one of the best nights out. Highly recommending this gem of a place!
Had the best sea bass ever (filet). Noise level was high but due to the restaurant being so busy I suppose.
Such a top notch experience! Best food & service we have had while living in Toronto these last two years. Highly recommend!
Excellent service, great ambience, food portions are very good! Definitely our go to!
Love the food, wait staff and ambiance! Peter the owner is super friendly, interacts with everyone and works just as hard if not harder than his staff:)
We celebrated our friend's birthday at EVOO. We had a lovely time. Great service and delicious food. Our friend!s dessert was served with a candle without asking!
We went to EVOO during TIFF for a friends' get-together and the service was top-notch. Other reviews mention the noise level; I found it no noisier than other small lively restaurants and we were certainly able to converse without any trouble. The service was attentive and prompt. Food was delicious.
great meal and service!!
We would go back if ever in Toronto
we've been there several times and never disapointed, one of my favorits now.
The worst dining experience in Toronto!
Service is poor, they ran out of my first two wine selections, and one item on the menu...
Badly presented below average extremely dated cuisine as Italian restaurants were thirty years ago.
Super seafood pasta and risotto
Service was quick and efficient. I ordered sardines as an appetizer. The taste was wonderful but there were too many small bones and they were difficult to see with the muted lighting.
We all ordered pasta and all were very good.
My only complaint was the noise level. It was very difficult to converse.
However I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Outstanding service and food - a little too noisy for an intimate dinner and tables a little too close for a private conversation - particularly when you have to speak loudly to be heard because of the noise.
The food was fantastic and service was awesome as well. We came on a Monday and had a bottle of wine at half price. If you like authentic Italian food and wine pairing, this is a great place to go.
Fabulous food. beautifully cooked. portions are generous.
Will go Back again!
Food is great. Good portions, fair price, great constant service.
Atmosphere is relaxing , you can have a good conversation.
good food, professional and friendly staff.
Toilets downstairs, not suitable for those with physical challenges.
The food and service was unbelievably awesome. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone. We really appreciate the accommodations they made for us in changing up their dishes to suit our preferences.
The food was great and the staff very attentive!
Attentive and friendly service. Excellent food. I asked to have the music turned down a bit and it was graciously done.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for the food, the service and the ambiance.
Delicious food! Bread yummy, as was the olive oil and complementary ntary hummus. I had the shrimp appetizer in a winey sauce. We split the arugula, beet and goat cheese salad ( a provençal touch) and my friend enjoyed the seafood pasta. Our server was very attentive and looked after us beautifully.
