    My wife and I go there very often and we are always impressed. If you order pasta and would like it soft, please let them know.

    I ate at this restaurant in the past, remembered it somewhat better. I ordered grouper fish from the daily special menu. Portion size was good, however the fish was overcooked and lacked complimentary condiments, or flavouring. The other person ordered veal parmesan, which was nice. Strange to have to add $2.00 for replacing potatoes with pasta.

    So we decided to actually walk through the doors after walking by this place about 200 times. Overall I was very happy with the food, service and experience and we will definitely be adding this to our regular place. I order a pasta dish and my wife had the pizza. Compared to the other local pizza places she said it is definitely one of the better places (compared to Vita, Trattoria, etc.) We will be back.

    Made reservations at the last minute. Food was really nice. Service was great. The room is a little cramped (the tables are packed close together) but didn't feel crowded. Lots of choice on the menu. Will definitely go back, lots of yummy sounding food to try.

  • Mothers day dinner
    Amused2Dine
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    We had a booking after a show. We called and asked to come earlier since the show finished sooner than we expected. We were seated immediately although the restaurant was full. Drinks arrived promptly. Then the service started failing. We did not get the usual bread and we asked for it. We got the salads and still no bread. Then we got the main course and soon after we got some delicious Flat Bred. Otherwise the service was very friendly and competent. We understand that the place was completely full and after the Mothers day brunch it never slowed down.

    My girlfriend and I wanted to choose a new restaurant for our Valentine's Day. We were tired of the same chains over and over so we wanted to try Amore Trattoria. It was wonderful. The food was delicious and our waitress was fantastic. Very pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable. The service really tied everything together, especially since it was a busy night all the staff really made us feel welcomed. I can sometimes be hesitant to try new places they I don't personally know much about, but this was a risk worth taking. We had a wonderful evening and will be returning soon.

    Overall the food was fair -- we had to send back the chicken to be reheated (in probably a toaster oven) as it was cold in the middle (clearly frozen not fresh). I had one of the pizzas, which was OK, but it's hard to screw up pizza. It was generally a nice atmosphere, not too noisy (but it was also a night with a heavy snowfall). If you're looking for top notch food, this won't be it, but for an average dinner out, it's probably suitable.

    My partner and I had NYE dinner here. Everything was great about this low key restaurant. Service was great, food outstanding and prices were right on. Seems like many locals were there. I think this was the perfect choice for NYE and away from the crowds. Easy public transport. Go and enjoy!

    Food and wine was good quality and value. Service was over the top. Encountered 5 staff over the course of the evening, all demonstrated an interest in making the experience a good one. Would go again. Bought some piazza to bring back to our university aged daughter and her friend ... They loved it.

    Went for a 9:30pm reservation, and got a window seat. A bit chilly at night near the window, but that was fixed by great food. I had the veal, which was very tasty. The mood was very cozy and relaxed... just what the doctor ordered after a busy work week.

    Nicely furnished room, good ambience. Soups were fresh and delicious--especially the minestrone, which had some lovely bright green, wilted spinach leaves, adding to t he taste and attractive colour. I had the Gorgonzola and pear salad. There was plenty of cheese, but the pear needed a bit more ripening to really enhance the flavour. Still, the salad vegetables were crisp and tasty, the dressing subtle and light. My companion had the shrimp salad and reported it to be excellent. The service was friendly and competent--attentive, but not intrusive. We were early for lunch, and it was quiet, but we found the noise level just fine for easy conversation,,,even when the room filled up.

    I have been to Italy and tasted great Italian food. In a city that boasts a large population of Italian descent, this was not. The eggplant parmagiana with pasta was a real disappointment.The eggplant was completely coated in a thick dried layer of cheese - probably mozzarella athough not verafiably so- enhanced with an additional dollop of parmesan. Inside was virtualy unidentifiable as eggplant. This was placed on a tomato sauce linguine which had way too much sugar added to it. The waiter was great and when I told him my opinion this, he said he would mention it, so maybe they will change the recipe. Otherwise the atmosphere was pleasant so if you like your pasta sweet - I recommend the place. Needless to say we didn't order dessert.

    We stopped and had dinner while walking on Yonge Street. The patio was the only one not busy, that should have been our clue. The food was boring...and I don't even remember what we had just that it wasn't great. We asked for tap water and were given a bottle we had to pay for...not cool. I didn't complain because it really wasn't a huge deal, but still not cool. There are much, much better restaurants on that strip. We won't be back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 4/27/2013
    The food was nice but not extraordinary, plenty of pasta dishes and some were very similar, the pizza was nice but the crust could of been a little crispier, was a little soft almost mushy. Our server seemed as if he was burnt out and just in a bad mood. Didn't appreciate some of his actions. It is a little neighborhood gem with nice food but the server kind of ruined the experience for me.

    I have been there a number of times in the past and will continue to be a patron. Menu is quite extensive and the wood burning pizza oven makes the thinest crust pies you've ever had. If I had to complain about anything ... it would be that the ceasar salad was not a creamy based dressing, but oil and vinegar.

    Food was excellent as was the service. One frustration was the noise level. The music was operatic areas, which is fine, but they were played loud enough to inhibit conversation. Though we requested to have it turned down, it didn't make a significant difference. Not the end of the world, but was frustrating.
