Diner Reviews
  • "It's good. Old school decor with a young, pleasant server. Great for Italian Comfort food. Pasta is always cooked perfectly and decent sized portions. The daily specials are a great addition to the existing menu. For a local place, nice to bring in the variety. Easy, casual go to place."

  • "Had a nice dinner at Baldini with my wife. Fantastic service in a cozy little restaurant. Only one server and a small kitchen staff all night, but the food and service were both very good. Prices were reasonable for the area."

  • "Cozy little restaurant that just really stands out, especially dinner! Our server gave us a very friendly welcome upon our entry, and generously provided our choice of table despite the restaurant being very busy! Since it was our first time, we were recommended the Penne Alla Vodka. Boy, was that a great choice! The servers were very nice, and very fast, especially Ricky! Keep up the good job, Ricky! The menu and the wine list was impressive and reasonably-priced! Our whole dining experience was brilliant! We will definitely be back!"

  • "The restaurant itself was very quiet. Almost too quiet. Fortunately, we were a group of 8 and provided a bit of liveliness. The food was good though - the Bruschetta and pizzas were great!"

  • "My husband and I have been to Baldini twice now and thoroughly enjoyed both visits. The food is very well prepared and delicious. Service was terrific on both occasions and the atmosphere is quiet and intimate. It is a small restaurant so it is a good choice for 'date night'. Prices initially seem a bit high for the portions but the food is well prepared so it is ultimately worth it - personally I would choose quality over quantity any day!"

  • "This was my fourth meal at Baldini and I plan to be back for more. As always the waiter was attentive and fun and offered up suggestions and recommendations. The food is always great at Baldini, as is the wine and cappuccino! This really is a "neighbourhood gem"!"

  • "Baldini's was a pleasurable experience. Quiet atmosphere, small setting, only 15 or so tables. food was excellent, service was a little slow, especially as we arrived, had to wait quite a while to get a drink before ordering--but other than that it was great."

  • "My girlfriend and I recently went here with another couple for dinner on a Thursday night. In summary, it is a quiet restaurant with good authentic Italian food and attentive service. Everyone enjoyed their meals which included the mushroom risotto and calabrese pasta. The food was enjoyed by everyone. Our server, Tyler, was also great and even brought my girlfriend a lemon/ginger tea on the house when it was apparent she was getting over a cold. The wine list isn't huge, but is adequate. Overall, good value for the money and I would definitely return."

  • "I arranged a birthday dinner for my partner, and 9 of our friends. Being a Wednesday night, I was a bit apprehensive when I saw the place was fully seated, and only had their main host, and one other server. For a table of 11 people, the service was fast, friendly and efficient. Drinks and apps arrived in a timely fashion, and all the mains were served within a couple minute of each other. Choices ranged from pizza, to pastas, and their filet and seafood dish. Consensus around the table was that the food was very good, and the prices were very reasonable. At the end of our meal, Baldini's host arranged separate cheques for anyone that wanted, which always makes large group situations less taxing. A definite YES!"

  • "A great cozy place and reasonably priced, that feels like home! The waiters are attentive but not cloying and makes the dining experience even more enjoyable. The menu has a nice selection and the selection of wine was impressive. I had an amazing half whole-wheat thin-crust pizza with chicken roasted red peppers and goat cheese, topped with fresh basil. The dish was very delicious, and I have not tasted this intensity of flavour, for a very long time. My wife had a seafood risotto, which she said was "really yummy!" I'll definitely go back there and I would recommend the restaurant to a friend!"
