I always enjoy my Sauce Italian Kitchen experience. The only downside to this visit was LARGE, VERY noisy group of women that felt it was OK to take over the restaurant, as if it was a private home. It was extremely difficult to carry on any kind of conversation. Fortunately, they were only there about an hour, all left, and we were able to resume our otherwise very pleasant dining experience.
I don't know how the restaurant could have handled this better --- I know business is important, but perhaps reserving for such a large group is not appropriate --- as it definitely interferes with the rest of the clientele.

The presentation was well done. My mom had the lasagne and said it was just okay. My husband had the mushroom pasta and the sauce was a bit dry. I had the Bolognese with gluten free pasta. It could have had more meat in it. Overall the lunch was okay, but not amazing.

Dining room is great for groups, engaging and fun atmosphere. I wouldn't suggest it for a quiet date night.

We had a late (745pm) reservation. Got there early thinking we’d either get a table early or have a drink at the bar. We were seated at the bar but it took 15 minutes to get a drink. We were finally at our table at 815... Service was good after that. Food was good. Wine expensive. Pretty noisy.

Went there with my husband to celebrate my birthday. Great ambience. Very trendy and busy (on a Saturday at 7pm). We had reso’s so didn’t have the wait. We ordered mussels & beef carpaccio to start. Both very tasty! The mussels has a peppery note at the end but not too strong. We both had pasta dishes which weren’t very large but were enough to fill us up, with some room for dessert. The appetizers and entrees came quite quick! We were done the meal in just over an hour. For dessert we had the tiramisu and it was amazing! Very unique. It is a deconstructed tiramisu where they pour the espresso on it at the table. And I had ordered a decaf coffee so the waiter was attentive enough to bring decaf espresso! It was unique and made to order (not made the night before & sat in a fridge), and had all the authentic flavours of a tiramisu. And to top it off they gave me a free cannoli for my Birthday. I highly recommend that dessert...and Sauce!!

Kitchen staff were operating some grinding equipment which was very high pitched and loud. Should not have been happening during lunch hours.

Had chicken artichoke penne many times. First time the chicken was tough. My husband had the gnocchi. He has salt on everything and even found the gnocchi too salty. Hope it was just a bad day as we love Sauce.

Sauce is my "go to" restaurant, and being in my neighborhood, visit about once a month. Bonus, our favorite server, Sara, was on duty Sunday evening, and took good care of us, as always : )

We always enjoy coming here. The servers are always wonderful. The food is so tasty and just the right amount. I asked our server to suggest a wine pairing with the short rib dish. It was a great choice. We've come here after work for drinks and appetizers.

We went to Sauce to celebrate a birthday. Everything was amazing, food and service were fantastic. We also used the bakery section of the market after dinner and got coffee to go. I would definitely recommend Sauce.

Was a little disappointed with the tiramisu dessert choice (the lady fingers were hard).

The pasta dinner was excellent (Florentina with sausage). The steak salad was terrible and the chicken and beet salad was good. Hence the lower rating because of the gross steak salad (steak was good but the salad was swimming in oil). 3 of us for lunch.

Our dinner at Sauce was amazing! From the moment we were seated the service was great, and the food was delicious. I was surprised at how inexpensive the prices were considering the ample portion size and food quality. The caprese salad had a nice spin on it with 2 varieties of olives and 2 types of tomatoes. The pasta and pizza was delicious as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Staff went out of their way to accommodate our need to have a quieter place to enjoy both our visit together and our meals. They absolutely made us feel valued. I continue to tell everyone that this is my favourite restaurant and this most recent experience proved why yet again.

Unfortunately we find the place too inconsistent. Menu changes and popular dishes are always being replaced. Too understaffed or inexperienced as service was brutal. Took 20+ minutes to get a drink and he asked about size twice and eventually even over charged me for a 9oz not a 6oz wine. At the arrival of our meals we asked for fresh pepper and got ice cold chilli flakes and “pizza” Parmesan shaker dropped at the table when we were more then half done our meals.

We always try to bring friends that have never been to Sauce as it’s our favourite dining spot. This time it was for my fiancé’s birthday and we brought my side of the family. Everyone enjoyed the food and our server was fantastic!!

We had to check in twice when we got to the restaurant. The hostess forgot about us. I'm not sure why we were sat at a table right by the door when there were empty tables at the back of the restaurant. The food was delicious. This dinner was a birthday present and I would have appreciated if the waitress had not read the amount of the bill out loud. I had read the bill and was aware of the amount. Overall the food was good.

The Caprese salad is wonderful, the pizza is typical of a real Italian restaurant being weak on the toppings. Pasta dishes are good but menu is limited. I have had better food there previously but not too impressed with my choice. I will go again and try something different. The service was attentive but several passed my table with numerous empty dishes sitting there.

Always a good experience. Our server was excellent and very attentive. We had a pizza this time and it was perfect. Toppings were the right amount and the crust was just the right crispness. Sauce is always on the list when we are looking to go out.
