Place was full, but our reservation was accommodated right on time. Everything, including the Arancini , was excellent and the sauce was among the best I have ever had. Service was excellent and helpful. We will eat there again on our next trip to Toronto.
I liked the food, very cozy atmosphere and staff were very friendly!
Portion was generous as well!
Definitely worth second (and more) visits
Tasty food but very hot inside (super hot July).
Date with family
Too hot in the restaurant to enjoy our food. Turn on the airconditioning.
Dinner with son before 3-week summer camp and it was perfect. Delicious traditional italian food. Mom is really in the back cooking. Some of the best gnocci I've ever had. Thanks for making a mother-son dinner special!
Taverniti never disappoints! We often bring family members who are visiting from abroad to get an authentic Italian meal. My relatives said that their quattro fromaggio was the best pizza they had ever had - and they have traveled to Italy. I also highly recommend their pasta (funghi, alfredo, vodka - they are all good!). Calamari fritti is excellent. My kids love the nutella pizza. The servers are always very friendly and patient with the kids. I love that the owner Mrs. Taverniti always comes around to say hello. The atmosphere is warm and cozy. I highly definitely recommend Taverniti!
Fantastic food and personnel. Lots of veggie options too!
Love Trattoria-you feel like family! The service is warm and friendly. The food is delicious. The restaurant is small and feels inviting. Make reservations; you don’t want to miss this!
My boyfriend and I came to Taverniti to celebrate our anniversary. We were looking to have a traditional Italian home cooked meal and we were not disappointed. I got the Gnocchi Gorgonzola a perfect dish for a cheese lover and the best gnocchi I have ever had by far. My partner got the Spaghetti alla Carbonara which I tasted and also really enjoyed. As an Italian growing up with Italian cooking this place provides traditional Italian dishes with quality ingredients. The entire atmosphere reminded me of home. It seemed as though the whole family was there and at one point a tiny older lady came by and asked us how we were enjoying our meal which I thought was very nice and reminded me of my Nonna. The prices were also really good our bill (pasta dish plus a dessert) averaging to around $65 for both our meals together including tip. I would definitely recommend this place if you’re searching for a classic Italian dining experience. I’m happy to know I have this place around the corner from where I live for when I feel like nonna’s cooking!
Great food; lovely to meet the owner and reminded me of my Nona
service was slow; the servers were running off their feet.
Slow to offer drinks, extra napkins when offered and milk with coffee. Not intentional, simply too busy. Perhaps more servers needed.
Be advised they have no air conditioning so it is uncomfortably hot in the summer.
I completely fell in love with this place. Everything was perfect, even the tiny details like small Italian wine glasses. Will definitely return
This restaurant is amazing and tastes exactly like Nonna's cooking. The gnocchi was the best I have ever had and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone who enjoys Italian cooking. Thank you Rosina and Domenic for the great dining experience.
Food was good. Small casual restaurant, very nice service.
My partner and I were staying in Little Italy for vacation. We happened upon this place after traveling from the U.S. Both of us are Italian and thought this was great. The only very small suggestion is to add more sauce to the Diavlo pizza. We also had arancini - superb. The Agnoletti was so amazing! And the rosė sauce was out of this world.
Some dishes were great, others were terrible. Would go again to try something different.
While the staff were very friendly, the food was mediocre at best - my main course had absolutely no flavour. Our guests loved their meals, but definitely not the best Italian I have had in this city.
Food was good but small portions. Loud and crowded so you need a reservation.
I organized my Italian boyfriend's birthday here with his brothers and we were not disappointed! Its a cozy place with amazing staff but aside from that, the food was spectacular! The best Italian I have ever had. I will recommend this place to everyone forever. Will definitely come back (a lot)!
Extremely authentic Italian restaurant. The interior reminds you of a family restaurant. The arancini was quiet expensive for three small pieces but the pasta and pizza were delicious.
Great place for authentic Italian homemade like meal.
Interesting ambiance and friendly staff.
Great value for money.
Will go again
Every meal that I've had here is amazing! Truly authentic, well-priced Italian food.
Our second visit was just as good as the first. Authentic Italian food. Yummm
I never got to eat as they told me I had never booked despite my confirmation from opentable
Great little spot, feels like you're in Italy! Food is fantastic and good portion sizes. Left stuffed.
Excellent pasta! Try the gnocchi! The desserts, wine, ambiance was fantastic.
Always such a pleasure to eat here. The pasta and pizza is as good as you can find. Friendly service, nice atmosphere in a small family restaurant.
This is one of our regular “go to “ places. Not super trendy just good home style cooking.
Trattoria Taverniti is one of our favourite Toronto restaurants. It is small and family run...the food is excellent and modestly priced. We take our family of 6 adults there and the bill is not over the top.....so we go again and again!! Tight seating but that is part of the ambiance.
A real neighborhood gem! Fantastic and authentic Italian food prepared by Domenic's mom. Always welcoming and always making sure you well taken care. The staff is very friendly and professional. This days is recommended to make a reservation. No doubt this Little Italy gem in the TO is one of the best authentic restaurants to enjoy the "home cook" flavors.
I’ve been to many Toronto Italian restaurants over many years.
I can’t believe how consistently great this place is. Scrumptious pasta and pizza, lovely little place, reasonable prices...Momma overseeing all.
What a treat!
Traditional homemade Italian food at its finest Great ambiance quaint little place Make a reservation
Amazing authentic Italian food! You must make a reservation! We watched lots of people walk in only to be told they were fully booked. The same owners also own another place called Rosita’s.
Returned to Trattoria Taverniti for a dinner for 2, after having been there with a large group and thinking the atmosphere looked inviting for conversation and great food. Wasn't disappointed! We both enjoyed our dinners -- super fresh pasta, great sauce, creative and delicious pizza and calamari. Will come back!
If you want Italian pasta in Toronto, you go here. That's it. Delicious. Authentic. Good service, reasonable prices, many dishes, good ambiance. Not fancy but just nice and good. I can't wait to go back.
One of the best family run Italian joints in the city. It's impossibly charming and the food is as fresh as can be. You can feel the love put into this place. I have ended many Sundays sharing a meal here and I will continue to.
We were going to a show at the Royal across the street and this was convenient. A little bit of a tight squeeze at a booth. Service was excellent. Food was good. We shared 2 pasta and a pizza between 4 of us. Pizza was the best. Gorgonzola gnocchi good but not great. Prices were reasonable. Balsamic with the oil was terrible.
I love College St., there are so many funky bars and restaurants, some of which unfortunately have a hard time drawing a steady clientele. Not so with Taverniti, they are always busy. Their pizzas are reminiscent of thin crust pizzas as made in Italy, and they will make a caccio e peppe for you if asked. Great place.
Very quaint and cozy but a little too noisy for the space available. Fantastic food! Highly recommend. Well worth the drive.
