Diner Reviews
  • "This was our first time at this little spot in the Annex area. What a find! Amazing food - you have to try the Anipasta platter to share. Unbelievably good. Everything was outstanding from the greeting at the door to our friendly, but not overly intrusive waiter, to our amazing delicious dinners. We will definitely visit this great restaurant again. The ambience is great, but busy and vibrant - a little on the loud side if you are looking for a quiet evening."

  • "Decided to try L'unita on the advice of some friends. Made a reservation through OpenTable. We arrived a little early for our 8:15 reservation and were greeted promptly and had a seat at the bar for drinks and appetizers. The vibe is modern neighborhood Italian - very warm and comfortable room, with good energy. Service was friendly and attentive. The food - And I am picky - Was excellent. The cod appetizer, the short ribs, simply delicious. I was equally impressed by the Krombacher Beer on tap. Not the first beer you'd expect to see at a neighbourhood italian place - But it was poured properly, stored at the right temperature and very fresh. Thanks L'Unita. We'll be back."

  • "Went there a few months back with friends to celebrate a birthday. The found and service were both outstanding. They even put a candle on the dessert (unrequested, the candle that is). So decided to go back with other friends. Again, flawless service, superb food (we ate too much; the food should come with a warning that you'll be tempted to order too much). The dishes they serve are not (for the most part) the traditional fare of Italian restaurants in Toronto - they mix up the ingredients and present known dishes in a different way or combinations you'd had considered before. And it's always nice to not feel rushed and on a Saturday night no less. Definitely would go again and recommend it highly."

  • "Nice staff, server was attentive. Food was quite good for our group dinner - often these types of meals can be complicated and annoying. We had a great time and enjoyed the whole experience."

  • "Had dinner with a friend on Thursday evening. Split pea soup was perfectly seasoned, crisped speck a great accompaniment, as was a focaccia slice. Grilled fish had crisp skin, and a marinated root salad on top was so good, I wished for a big bowl of it!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Staff were friendly and accommodating, and food was creative and appetizing. Unwanted hair in one of the fish dishes Waiters were embarrassed and made billing adjustments. Some noisy patrons ruined what was otherwise a pleasant dining experience. Staff unwilling to moderate rambunctious behaviour of some young male birthday celebrants who were loud and profane. Pity. Fine Italian style food at reasonable prices. Impressive wine list. Would return for sure - but be wary of the drinking louts."

  • "Great for a good night out with a friend-upbeat, attentive service, melt-in your mouth breads, antipasto plate is awesome for two to start, pasta cooked to perfection, banana cake dessert to-die-for. Spoil yourself and go here!"

  • "This was my first time at L'Unita after having passed it many times. I thought that they had a good variety of choices and the meals that my friend and I had, were both excellent. The restaurant itself is very cosy and you can easily have a conversation with the person(s) you're with. The service was attentive and prompt. Our only complaint was that we were seated right by the entrance which we immediately asked if we could sit somewhere away from the cold, however we finallly moved tables after a few requests. I would have given it a five star but that little glitch made me give it a four. If you go, definitely ask for a table along the left wall with the sofas and not by the door entry. At least not during a cold Canadian winter."

  • "A group of four friends meeting for delicious food, conversation, and service. We were very pleased with the food and, especially, the individualized, accommodating service. When they turned the lighting down so much that it was difficult to see our food and its lovely presentation, they turned it back up! Our request for a quiet table was also honoured (to the best of their ability)."

  • "A very good Winterlicious menu--generous proportions, good choices, good service--plus half-price bottles of wine on Tuesdays as an unexpected bonus."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "Four of us ate from the Winterlicious menu ($35 for dinner) and it was without a doubt the best "licious" meal I've had. Recently, the franchise has fallen on well-deserved hard times with sub-par food and sloppy service abounding. L'Unita has restored my faith! I had the arancini, which were perfect, and the braised lamb shank, which was also divine. The polenta was so creamy it tasted like mashed potatoes. The tiramisu donoughts tasted a tad stale to me, but having had so much great food already I didn't mind. I had enough leftover for a lamb sandwich the next day! An extra special secret about this place is that on Tuesday their whole wine list is 1/2 price. You don't see this sort of thing in Toronto NEARLY enough!"

  • "Had a great meal very nice service. Tuesday is half price wine night which was a wonderful treat. Great place"

  • "I have been to L'Unita Enoteca a few times now, and the only thing that surprises me is... well... how they can still surprise me. The food is always top-notch (a mix of classic Italian dishes that run the gamut from North to South with a few saucy contemporary twists thrown in the mix), the service cannot be outdone by even the finest of dining establishments, the wine list carefully curated, and the decor/ambiance is the perfect pairing to any meal. We dined as a group of seven for Winterlicious with a packed house and never once felt as though we weren't being looked after. L'Unita has charm and a quiet sophistication juxtaposed with a convivial clientele. What more could you ask for? Seriously, make a reservation for L'Unita. Now."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Food was delicious and staff were light and friendly. The Winterlicious portions were substantial and very tasty. I will go back and tell my friends."

  • "Superb food, delightful wine and outstanding service. What more can you ask for? They even brought a couple of candles with the dessert for the birthday girls. Definitely worth another visit."

  • "We brought out of town guests to l"Unita and could not converse because of the noise. The long narrow room was occupied all along one wall by a group celebrating a birthday party. They stood, talking loudly in small groups in the narrow space between our table and theirs. When they finally sat down, the noise continued unabated. The birthday celebrant moved up and down along the table bending over to talk to his guests with his butt almost touching our plates. We ate our entree and left asap, leaving almost half a bottle of wine unconsumed. For us as hosts it was an embarrassing and humiliating experience. Surely the restaurant should let clients know when making a reservation that the restaurant will be filled with a private party?"

  • "We were tucked away on a side table for two, away from the rest of the diners. The place was packed, and yet the servers still took their time to walk us through the menu and special dishes of the day. We started with an order of warm olives, roasted garlic, peperoncino, and citrus and followed that up with arancini di zucca - basically fried risotto balls on a bed of black truffle honey... YUM. I had the (handmade, in house) sunchoke and ricotta tortelloni as my main course, and we treated ourselves to a mascarpone and almond layered cake for dessert - topped with chocolate ganache and plated with thin slices of blood orange. Quality of service and quality of food were both top notch :)"

  • "We had a 6:45pm dinner reservation and felt very rushed throughout our dinner. Each course came too quick and as soon as we put our fork down our dishes were taken away. Too rushed for a fine dining meal. The waiters were very pleasant and food was good although our pasta was a little on the cool side and had be sent back. I believe that was because of the rushed service. I would go back and try it again, for a special occasion."

  • "Found this little place via Google, had heard good things about it. Went there as a party of 8 with guests from Montreal after a long day at an event - could not have picked a better spot to relax and unwind! Fantastic food, our server was super friendly and personable, helpful at recommending food and wine choices. We had a reso at 8:30pm on a Tuesday evening - place was not too busy but definitely some groups here and there. Lovely atmosphere whether out with friends, colleagues, family, or on a date. Make sure to get the Arancini appetizer with black truffle and honey sauce, was excellent! And the pumpkin doughnuts for dessert. Will definitely be going back there."

  • "My husband and I were introduced to L'Unita about 4 years ago and have been back many times since for business dinners, gatherings with friends and family and of course for the special treat on Tuesdays. L'Unita has been our easy "go-to" as well as a favourite for celebrations. The quality of food, the service and the ambience is always above average and consistent."
