NEW TEATRO - Pre-theater prix fixe menu $45 from 5pm-7pm daily
Tutti Matti serves traditional, authentic Tuscan cuisine, prepared using only fresh seasonal ingredients.
Everything is made in-house, including our fresh bread and pastas. Some dishes are permanent productions of our kitchen — gnudi, pinci, pappardelle, tagliatelle. Others are more seasonal, like stuffed zucchini flowers in the summers and polpetta and hearty soups in the winter. From day one, we have served venison, wild boar, fennel pork sausage and we love to produce delectable trays of antipasto, which change seasonally and daily (sometimes even mid‐service!)
Discover a great list of Italian wines, carefully selected to match the flavors and spirit of Tuscan food.
Tutti Matti has been hailed by critics and received both local and national awards, including the prestigious 2009 "L'Eccio D'Oro" for Osteria of the Year (an award previously

Very short handed, waitress and waiters not as friendly/professional as experienced at other restaurants. Happy with the food, disappointed with the service.

When we were shown to our table, there was a large piece of broken glass on the banquet where I was to sit. I pointed this out to our male server who removed the glass. When I went to sit down, I noticed there were a few more pieces further down the banquet. The server seemed surprised and a bit bothered by this but he removed those as well. We were given a perfunctory ´sorry’. The waiter was surly throughout the meal which detracted from the wonderful food.

We were on the last night of our vacation from the US. This was an outstanding place for our last dinner in Toronto. The food choices were creative and we had trouble limiting our order when we obviously could not take "doggie bags" with us. I would highly recommend the short ribs. Cooked perfectly! My only regret is that, due to distance, we cannot make this a regular place for a night out.

A truly exceptional night out at Tutti Matti. The menu is simple and well-thought out. The chef and owner, Alida Solomon, welcomed us and explained the menu, showing an affection for the food, the craft of making great dishes, and the art of hosting people. That doesn't happen much at most restaurants, let alone have it done by the chef. The pasta was perfectly cooked, flavoured to perfection, and the pizza was simple, elegant, and not overwhelming. The freshness of the ingredients stands out with specials on the menu reflecting seasonal delicacies like ricotta-stuffed zucchini flowers. I can't recommend this place enough and it was a reminder why I need to go back again soon.

Another great lunch at Tutti Matti! Myself and some colleagues enjoyed an al fresco lunch sitting by the open doors at the front of the restaurant, perfect for a beautiful summer day! We enjoyed some seasonal starters of lightly battered and fried, stuffed zucchini blossoms and grilled strawberries and peaches with prosciutto. I was in the mood for the classic open faced porchetta sandwich, piled sky high with chef Alida’s famous slow roasted pork and topped with the addictive tonnato mayo. My friends had the wonderfully summery fettuccini with fresh peas and the classic margherita pizza, they thoroughly enjoyed their dishes. As always Alida is a wonderful host and our server Linda was lovely!

Nice pleasant Italian food but I was hoping for more. I've had similar meals in other restaurants. Very pleasant outing however and the service was impeccable and the wine list and recommendations very good. I could recommend Tutti Matti to a friend provided their expectations were tempered.

Had a brilliant lunch at Tutti Matti today! From the time we walked in the door, Alida, the chef and owner welcomed us with open arms! Our server was wonderful, explained the specials and recommended a yummy bottle of Lambrusco, perfect for a fun lunch with some old friends! We started with a fried pizza dough and prosciutto appetizer that was light and airy, not greasy at all. I had the porchetta open-face sandwich, piled high with the flavourful pork and unreal tonnato mayo! My one friend had the fettuccini with the flavours of spring, snap peas, pea shoots, peas, rosemary and pancetta, delicious! Not to mention the perfectly al-dente pasta that Alida makes in-house. My other friend had the Stella Cy pizza, with artichokes, prosciutto cotto, fontina and Fiore di latte. I had to steal a small slice, it looked so good and it did not disappoint! The toppings were so perfectly paired together, but I can’t say enough about the dough... that dough!! It was light and fluffy with the right amount of chew and the flavour of properly proofed bread. We did not leave one piece of crust on the plate! Needless to say, we left stuffed and happy. I highly recommend Tutti Matti for lunch or dinner, amazing meal and experience!!

The worst service I have ever experienced from my recent memories. The service was so disinterested in our group, he was ignoring us pretty much most of the night! He would try to say something to us while walking away to attend another table. Didn’t ask how our food was or didn’t even bother to refill our water glasses. Brushing us off at the end by telling us the pastry chef had to leave at 930p so we better order our dessert early and it was not even 9p. The food was excellent but that won’t compensate the poor customer service. If I wasn’t there with my old friends that I haven’t seen for a long time, I would have walked out this place or made a big scene with this rude server.

Service was inattentive at best. Had to get our own salt and pepper & had to flag down our server to get pretty much anything.

My food was lukewarm, but I was too hungry to send it back to be reheated. Our server also gave us our food and left immediately without asking if we needed anything else. Her demeanor made us wonder if she even liked her job.

Did not feel the value was adequate in relation to the prices. Will not return.

I used to live in Tuscany so I am familiar with authentic Tuscan fare. The food at Tutti Matti was pretty good. Chicken liver, fresh pasta and wild boar ragu are Tuscan staples. Tutti Matti did a decent job of each but I wouldn’t call it authentic Tuscan. It was like everything was prepared to appeal to the North American palette. The service was really good; a surprise given other negative reviews. The wine menu was excellent. Overall, I would recommend Tutti Matti.

We booked through American Express for the fixed menu Italian event. Misleading as there were 2 primi’s and another section with 2 secondi’s but we couldn’t only choose ONE of the four not one from each category. This is NOT spelled out on the menu when booking on line. Food just ok. Fish came without any accompaniments. VERY slow service. Had to wave at the waiter.

Food was great. Unfortunately our server didn’t enter our order properly and it was only after we pointed out to her that we hadn’t received our appetizer after almost an hour that the order was properly entered into the system. She never felt it necessary to apologize and tried to avoid us the rest of the evening. The manager was very gracious and told us to leave whatever we felt appropriate instead of giving us a bill.

Tutti Matti is one of those rare treasures that we've returned to time and time again. It combines truly delicious food with gracious hospitality in an invitingly warm, informal setting. Some restaurants are variable in their quality but with this one there's a remarkable consistency... makes us look forward to the next time we visit. Enjoy!

We had a lovely dinner for four there recently, celebrating a birthday. Service was excellent - just the right level of attentiveness. They are knowledgeable, proud and passionate about their food. We shared a few apps, each of us had a different - and delicious - main, and we shared a few desserts. Everything was amazing. Would prefer lighting level slightly lower, which would make better use of the candles on the table. Would also like to see a few lower-priced options on the wine list.
