A word from Mistura
Located close to Toronto's Yorkville area, Mistura opened in October of 1997 to rave reviews and continues today with the same ideals. It boasts excellent quality, seasonal menus prepared Chef Massimo Capra's way and served by the professional and knowledgeable team. Mistura is about hospitality that's fun and comfortable, set in an elegant candle-lit atmosphere. A contemporary Italian cuisine reflects a simplified yet refined approach to taste. An extensive wine list, including wine from some of the world's finest vineyards, and an attentive, knowledgeable staff add to the appeal. Perhaps you prefer a more intimate, private setting. Mistura's private dining room holds 14 people, while the semi-private dining room holds up to 40, to cater to your more private functions.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The overall experience was in a word, delightful! Cocktails on arrival were accompanied with very pleasant bread and a flavourful artichoke white bean puree. The appetizers, Beet salad/ Crispy artichokes, were such that we could readily split and switch and did. The mains, boneless cornish hen, stuffed and enclosed in pancetta, with roasted root vegetables & a cauliflower puree, looked very good, however my Agnello was fantastic, serviced on the rare side of medium, on a bed of flavourful lentils and garlic rapine, who could ask for anything more? We paired a nice Italian Tuscany wine that we had sampled in Rome. The Arancia with our favourite coffee styles, latte & Americano, wrapped it up for us. DELIGHTFUL!!"

  • "We went to this restaurant with very high expectations. We enjoy fine dining and have no problem paying high prices for a good plate. We tried several dishes and none of them were any good. I should have sent couple of our plates back to the kitchen. The red beet risotto was watery. There was barely any lobster in my lobster pasta and it lacked flavour. All the other plates that we tried were problematic too. I am not sure what was going on in the kitchen. But I don't think we'll go back."

  • "Coming from out of town it is sometimes difficult to find a good place to dine but mistura definitely offered a deliscious meal with excellent service. Servers are experienced and know the items on the menu very well. The staff was professional and welcoming. I am of Italian descent and am very picky at Italian restaurants as I am used to homemade Italian cuisine, yet Mistura has most definitely impressed me! Would definitely recommend Mistura to anyone in Toronto or visiting Toronto that wants a relaxing atmosphere and excellent Italian dining."

  • "liked it quite a lot. expensive but in context of toronto it is reasonable value for an upscale restaurant. service was good. food was good particularly apps. my wife's main (scallop) was very good, mine was not as good (wild boar pasta) - disappointing with not much flavour really. wine was reasonable and reasonable price choices . we will go back and prob just order more carefully."

  • "The food was very good, but nothing special. We had a reservation, but still had to wait a considerable amount of time to be seated. Waiter was nice, but was not overly attentive, maybe the restaurant was too busy, or we did not look rich enough for him. Dessert was disappointing."

  • "Went to Mistura expecting a lovely meal as we'd heard good things. However, the food was underwhelming. The portions were too large, too rich and there were bones left in my husband's fish. The service started out well when we were the only ones in the restaurant, but declined as the restaurant became busier. We were left for too long after we'd finished dessert and practically had to beg for the bill. Definitely not worth the price - we've had better for less."

  • "We enjoyed a quiet week night evening in a comfortable booth for four people with a good wine selection and excellent food. Each person had a different main course and everything was excellent -- slow roasted rabbit, seared smoked salmon filet, seared N.S. scallops and lamb ribs. The service was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was conducive to conversation. We would definitely return."

  • "If you enjoy throwing over $200 away on an average meal, then this is the place for you. The appetizer was good, but the entrée was very sub-par and very small portion. The cocktails are overpriced. $15 for an apple martini. No house wine available. My wife and I were very disappointed with our overall meal. Try another place."

  • "We three female foodies get together every 6-8 weeks to share a culinary experience. Mistura delivered. The appetizers were outstanding as were our mains. Presentation was creative. Seasonings were lovely. The lemon sorbet was a perfect way to cleanse our palets and finish the evening. The valet parking was worth the money. Our server was pleasant and helpful. This was a special birthday celebration and we enjoyed it very much."

  • "We visit Mistura several times each year and we are always impressed by their ability to serve great dishes during extremely busy times (such as Summerlicious or Valentine's Day). The quality of the food is extremely consistent. However, during our most recently visit during Valentine's Day, the service suffered slightly. This is completely understandable but if you are seeking a Romantic Dinner at Mistura, visiting during a slow week night may be a better bet."

  • "The service was excellent, this was appreciated when 2 of us sent our cold food back. When a plate is brought to the table and you are told it is hot, nothing on it required a broiler, it had been under a heat lamp. The replacement was warm, came relatively quickly and Chef Massimo made a point of stopping by to give us his sincerest apologies. I found the decor very disappointing. It had the feeling of a dated hotel restaurant. The lighting was harsh and the space simply lacked thought. The food was far from stellar and the atmosphere rather blah. There are so many other Italian restaurants that far exceed Mistura that I would not be recommending it to anyone."

  • "I am a fan of Massimo's and always enjoy watching him create fabulous recipes, this was my reason for choosing his restaurant. It is a well appointed restaurant with very attentive staff. The food was beautifully presented and the taste was fabulous. I did find it a bit noisy but it is a popular place so all tables were occupied. We asked to move to a booth which was ideal for conversation and location. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Italian cuisine. The valet parking was a bonus."

  • "Mistura exceeded our expectations The service and food were exceptionally. Mistura offers an eclectic menu. We were able to choose appetizer portions of any entree. Both appetizers and entree's (for me in appetizer portion) were delicious. The dessert menu was awesome. There was one drawback. When we arrived, we were slightly ahead of the crowd and the ambiance was quiet. When the several tables around our booth became full, we had to shout to be heard. We would definitely go back again as a foursome requesting a booth closer to the entrance to avoid some of the noise. We would highly recommend Mistura for its food and service and will return."

  • "Several years ago, we had an incredible dining experience at Mistrura. The menu was unique and food very good. We went back but were disappointed with the menu (nothing outstanding), we were seated next to a noisy party of four in a tiny little room (claustrophobic), it was loud, stuffy and while the meal was enjoyable, it wasn't what we were looking for as a couple. Solid Italian restaurant with good food. Would not recommend for couples, but a get together with friends."

  • "Went for a birthday celebration and the dessert and writing (in chocolate) was wonderful. The artichoke appetizer is a MUST! The lobster bisque was O.K. For the main course we ordered Gnocchi (was O.K. but didn't meet our expectations). We felt the same about the veal. The beef tenderloin special was superb - the meat was cooked to perfection (medium rare), melted in your mouth and extremely flavourful. Wine recommendation was perfect. Dessert was amazing. Staff was DELIGHTFUL!!"

  • "This is the first time a highly rated OpenTable rating has not lived up to expectations. When we were seated, we were at a 5 top table at the very front of the restaurant even though we were the 2nd party in the restaurant. Water was not poured for us until it was asked. When we were ready to order (all menus were closed as we eyed our waiter passing by our table at least 5 times) it took about 10 minutes before we were acknowledged. Food was mediocre and in fact misleading. My rabbit dish had lukewarm meat yet scalding hot vegetables. My wife's housemade lobster pasta came from a store-bought package. My sister's initial dessert tasted like playdough. I recommend that anyone who appreciates good food to stay away from this terrible place."
