Best ItalianVery good, limited, menu with a daily special. It differed from what was on their site, but it mattered little—all the options sounding incredible. Primarily pasta as mains, but when it's fresh made like this, there's no reason to order anything but.
Small room, with a friendly and attentive wait staff.
Everything really was grand with the tiny exception that I thought it was a tad bright given the intimacy of the space. We arrived at 7:30 and they dimmed the lights at 8, but it was still a bit bright.
Highly recommend.12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional! Had the pastaExceptional! Had the pasta special made with chicken liver...so yummy! Only complaint is the lack of variety of white wine, but what was available was scrumptious!7/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAscari Enoteca needs your supportGreat food and wine selection and our server was amazing. The space is enjoyable, a bit noisy and the music did NOT suit the ambiance but overall it was GREAT. We were there on a Wed night and there were about a dozen other people so please get out and enjoy a fantastic Italian meal and support having such a fine restaurant in the neighbourhood before it gets replaced by some trashy fast food joint.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place but very noisyThe food and service but, oh my, the noise level! We couldn't hear ourselves over the din. It's a small space so not much can be done about conversations but turning down the background music would probably help. No one can really enjoy it anyway, believe me.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMProbably the best homemadeProbably the best homemade pasta I've had in Toronto!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMYummThe place is a bit small but comfy. The energy is great, a little loud at times but I could still have a nice conversation. The food was delicious, very nicely presented. I had the brussels sprouts which were very good and my boyfriend had the spaghetti, as well as chocolate cake with goat cream cheese for dessert. All very tasty given in a reasonable amount of time. No complaints about the service, and the atmosphere was very relaxed.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely dinner in a small package!Love the intimacy of the room here - although quiet and romantic it is not. Energy is great and every time I've been here, the service has been wonderful. Sommelier is incredibly knowledgeable and I love the uniqueness and thoughtfulness of the wine list. Tried my first Georgian wine here (not the Georgia USA)..it was a huge surprise and a lovely mouthful of deliciousness. I wish they would update the menu a little more frequently - as a neighbourhood place the selection can get a bit ho-hum given that it is a pretty focused menu. Variety would be great. Otherwise, food is tasty and I love a night out here.1/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
