Tutti Matti serves traditional, authentic Tuscan cuisine, prepared using only fresh seasonal ingredients.
Everything is made in house, including our fresh breads and pastas. Some dishes are permanent productions of our kitchen — gnudi, pinci, papardelle, 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 flavours 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 won by Mario Batali and Alain Ducasse).
Located downtown Toronto, steps from the Theatre / Entertainment districts.

Warm and welcoming atmosphere with attentive but relaxed service. The Northern Italian food is always sensational, both seasonal and with such lovely attention to flavours. Great wines and grappa. It is one that you want to make your Italian go to restaurant!

Tutti Matti is my favourite Italian restaurant in Toronto. It is authentic Tuscan food, not the usual North American version of Italian food.

We were there as two couples and we made the decision to let our hostess choose our meals to give us a sampling of the menu. She made up our dining experience to share two appetizers, two pastas, two meats and then one dessert. The menu is creative and she made fabulous choices for us and we all but licked the plates clean. The whole experience was terrific and memorable for all. We had a great evening. Thanks.

We were there on a rainy night and the place was slow. We found that the menus had shrunk. The appetizers were very different and it was hard to find 2 that we liked. They weren’t great. The pasta was good. Charging for bread ticked me off and it wasn’t very good. Our server knows wine and picked an excellent bottle, which was the highlight. Overall, the food was disappointing and I’ll not rush back.

Food was great. Chef has a deft feel for fish. Done to perfection. Light grill flavour so taste of fish shines through. Quite noisy and chilly. Service attentive and pleasant. Not adaptable nor accommodating to special requests or substitutions.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Tutti Matti. We were seated at a quiet table near the partition beside the entrance to provide protection from conversations at other tables so my husband could converse comfortably in spite of a hearing impairment. We ordered several dishes from the menu and shared each one so we could both have a taste of the beautifully prepared food. We also shared a bottle of lovely Italian wine, reasonably priced. The service was well paced and our server was very attentive to our table. Our water glasses were kept full, as we had requested. She was helpful in making our menu selections and took her time in offering us dessert. We especially enjoyed the short ribs and the duck appetizer. The baked turnips were also very tasty. We would happily go to this restaurant again and take friends and/or family with us.

The food looks good on paper and was presented well enough but was quite Bland, and certainly overpriced. To add insult to injury there was a $6 surcharge for for a couple of extra small pieces of bread with our antipasto when we used up the small serving that came with our antipasto, which was insufficient for the Pate on the plate. poultry serving that came with the plate. Service was fine, although I felt sorry for our server having to apologize for the restaurants policy.

The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived. Only one server was visible. Nobody worked the bar and there was nobody in the visible cooking/prep area. The server seated us at a table for 2 along the row of tables that run the wall of the restaurant. The halogen spot lights in the ceiling shine very brightly and directly on guest heads, casting shadows on the face of your dining partners (and your own, I presume!). There is no need for tea lights here. Didn’t even need my phone flashlight to read the menu. Not the warm intimate ambiance i was hoping for. The server said she could dim the lights but she never did. The noise level is low so it was difficult not to listen to the conversation at the next table. Took over 10 minutes for the first service call asking if we wanted drinks. When we asked about corking our unfinished wine, the server was adamant that it was illegal and then the chef came over to say it was certainly allowed. Food was okay but nothing notable and expected more at this price point. The service is a slow and the server prepares the drink order. clearly understaffed. Will not go again.

I've never posted a restaurant review in my life. But this was such a miserable experience, I feel compelled to vent. I am an avid restaurant goer and I can say the waitress who served us at Tutti Matti was the rudest, nastiest and most unpleasant server I've ever had. There's not enough space to list how this person spoke to us and treated us in full detail, but If we had not been with friends, my husband and I would have left the moment she bullied us to give our orders. I dont even remember how the food tasted, I was so upset by how I was treated. I won't ever go back. To the owner, who I'm sure is a great chef, get rid of the miserable young girl who ruined a lovely Saturday night for us.

The food at Tutti Matti is creative and well prepared. However, it the dishes are costly for what is provided in them. We had the burrata which was excellent and accompanied by a roasted pear. The pear also appeared in the duck confit which we ordered with no other vegetable. Contorni were vastly over priced.

I had the porchetta app and veal cheeks as a main, both were fantastic. This place never disappoints. Service was excellent save getting the bill and paying due to an influx of other patrons at an inopportune time.
