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

- Top notchBondgirlVIPDined on 8/25/2014Mistura never disappoints. It had been years since my last visit, but I should get there more often. Reliably fabulous food in a beautiful and classy but comfortable setting appropriate for a romantic evening, a quiet meal with friends or a serious business conversation. The tomato soup was a perfect balance of freshness and slightly cheesy saltiness. Scallops with the corn puree were perfectly seared and complemented by the assorted accompanying flavors.Special Features:

- MontrealerDined on 8/13/2014This restaurant is awesome! The food and service are excellent and we make sure to go each time we are in Toronto. It is a must try restaurant especially if you like good food and different recipes.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The best Italain spot in TorontofoodieVIPDined on 8/12/2014The place has been consistantly great since the day it opened. Massimo is always trying new recipes and changing up his menu. Just came back from 2 weeks in Italy and this was my favourite meal. Best spagehtti Bolongnese in the world.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Did not disappoint!ChrisDined on 8/9/2014After hearing the name of this restaurant every time Massimo Capra would be on Restaurant Makeover, I knew I HAD to check this place out. Sure enough, I finally went and surely was not disappointed! The Rabbit and Panna Cotta were simply to DIE for! Considering the location in Yorkville and the amount of food you get, the prices are very reasonable! My only minor disappointment was the service - if our Server would have been a little more personable, it would have added to the evening. He did the bare minimum of his job - nothing more. A side from that - all check marks!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 55manOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/7/2014Although the food was very flavourful and creatively presented, the wine service was less than attentive and server didn't know who ordered which salads, mains.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great dinner & great serviceNotmykitchenDined on 8/7/2014Our group of 4 chose Mistura for a Toronto birthday dinner based on Trip Advisor reviews and had a very enjoyable experience. One member of our party has a soy allergy, which we noted when we made our reservation through Open Table, and the restaurant accommodated that effortlessly. We had fantastic service from the moment we arrived and all thoroughly enjoyed our drinks, appetizers, main courses and desserts. Job well done - front and back of house. Thank you!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- ConsistencyTastybudsDined on 8/1/2014Discovered Mistura about five years ago through a friend. Always try to get back when visiting Toronto. Has a good friendly atmosphere with wonderful food and best risotto in town! Staff are great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- They never failOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 7/25/2014Always the stalwart, the reason we dine at Mistura, often without reservations is for the food. Throughout the years, we have never had a bad main, nor have we experienced anything other than exemplary service. Enomatic wines with half pours allow great possibilities for pairings and exploration.Special Features:
- Masterful MassimoFredDined on 7/24/2014Once again, Massimo has prepared a meal that exceeds expectations. The service was perfect, not a moment with an empty glass. The restaurant was full which is extraordinary for a Thursday night in the middle of summer. Just tells you that foodies will find great food when it's prepared the way Massimo does it. We have become regulars now and will continue to bring our friends and family to this special place.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- AnonymousVIPDined on 7/17/2014I have no idea why this restaurant is so popular. Every time we have been there over the years we are surprised at how bad it is. This last meal will definitely be the last!
- Meat eaters joy, vegetarians woe!MorningGlory1Dined on 7/17/2014The meat eaters in a party of 5 were happy with their selection from the summerlicious menu. The Duck starter was a delight to the palate with an explosion of textures and flavours. The strong bold Orata that followed for the main course gripped the taste buds in a dance with the complimentary garnish. The one vegetarian felt totally cheated by the awful salad with too much vinaigrette and limp poorly plated stuffed pepper! I agree with their angst! The service was impeccable deserving of a twenty percent tip! The $60 bottle of wine although very good was way over priced! Overall a pleasant experience for fine dining on a special occasion!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great as alwaysOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 7/11/2014It had been some time since last we were at Mistura, and we realize what we have been missing. The quality of food is perhaps to be expected at this venue and with this chef, but the size of portions for Summerlicious was surprisingly generous. The server was attentive and professional. A perfect evening for our anniversary celebration.Special Features:
- Second time's a charm.....TTarpinDined on 7/11/2014This was our second time at Mistura (for our wedding anniversary again) and they seem to consistently provide excellent food and service. When we arrived, Massimo was at the front greeting people which is always a great touch for any restauranteur. I think his energy and enthusiasm for great food and service is infectious. It is evident in their staff as they're friendly and attentive. Keep up the great work!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best Italian in the cityigeeDined on 7/11/2014'Surprise' is how I would describe Massimo Capra's personal touch on every item on the menu. Whether it is a starter, main or dessert. His hands on involvement in the kitchen and at the tables makes all the difference. While billed as an Italian menu, Massimo's imagination has taken every dish to an 'indie' level. Unclassifiable.Special Features:
- Fantastic !PontaDined on 7/10/2014We went to Mistura for summerlicous dinner with my friend. Food, Service are great ! I definitely come back again !!Special Features:
- Excellent mealJonjamDined on 7/5/2014Went here on Saturday night as I heard the food was excellent. Ordered more than a few dishes and all was very good. The best of all was the artichokes and red beet risotto. The service was excellent as well and would like to thank Chris my server for a job well done. At the end of the night my kids even mentioned that the steak they had was very tasty and the cappuccinos with the chocolate covered spoon was delicious.Special Features:

- A.MA.ZINGlovegoodfoodDined on 7/2/2014My Husband and I recently had dinner here for his 31st birthday. From the moment we walked in the door (actually, before we had even walked in the door!) we were greeted by exceptionally friendly and personable staff. Our food was BEYOND amazing, and I personally loved that some of the Waitstaff seemed to really know some of the other patrons I could only imagine to be "regulars". We had a really great evening, and will be sure to tell any who will listen of our great experience at Mistura!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Still on top of its gamefoodieVIPDined on 7/1/2014This is one of Toronto's best restaurant that is consistantly great. It helps that the owner and chef is usually in the kitchen. He cooks his fish , meat and pastas to perfection. The menu is always unique and creative, but not over the top. W always leave feeling happy and satisfied by all we eat there.Special Features:

- Superb!FredDined on 6/27/2014The total dining experience was superb! The food was excellent, great wine choices, the server was professional, experienced and precise. It was great that Chef Massimo came out to greet the diners. He is a master magician in the kitchen and we appreciate his great work and the quality of the food. It was a very memorable dining experience. I will become a regular now.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Birthday celebrationBistroBabe1Dined on 6/21/2014Great restaurant for a special occasion dinner to celebrate birthdays with friends. Appetizers of deep fried artichokes and shrimp were tasty and could be shared easily. Scallops were beautifully done to perfection. Panacotta and Summer Tiramasu were outstanding deserts. A memorable dinner for all.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Very nice but.....Thedink43Dined on 6/16/2014Very pretty, food very good - not excellent - good drinks re taste and portions. Reasonable prices for this type restaurant. Service could have been better - restaurant not crowded so no need to turn tables but felt rushed. As soon as fork was placed on plate after appetizer or dinner finished waiter or busboy immediately removed dishes and next food came very quickly. No chance to relax between courses. Waiter not most personable or friendly, not great on follow up. Would give it another chance.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Not quite thereLuciaDined on 6/12/2014Although the carciofi appetizer was delicious, the salmon entree fell short. It was raw in the middle. The strawberry tiramisu was a nice ending.Special Features:
- mlg333Dined on 6/5/2014Food was outstanding, high end but not presumptuous. The duck and red beet risotto was one of the best ever tasted. The scallops were perfectly cooked and melted in your mouth. The desert brownie was amazing. Service was perfect, not too fast, well paced.Special Features:
- Great service and foodfoodieDined on 5/24/2014For after opera dinner, it was fine. My husband's lamb was cooked perfectly but I found my sea bass lacking any distinctive flavour - which surprised me as it was a special that night. Everything else was very good. It was a very loud crowd that night - celebrating birthdays and such but we didn't mind.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/10/2014Great menu with fantastic food. Service was unmatched. They were able to accommodate a change in our reservation time with no hesitation, when other restaurants may have put up a fuss. Thanks for the great experience!Special Features:
- great appetizerluvtotryanythingDined on 5/8/2014I had the artichoke appetizer and must say it was one of the best appetizers I have had in long time. I also wanted to try the rabbit as I have not had that for about 30 years and it was very good. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.Special Features:
- The following 281 reviews are from the Mistura reviews archive.
- Fine DiningButchandSundanceDined on 4/29/2014The food and wine were both fantastic. As good as can be for the category. It is not inexpensive 2 couples with cocktail, bottle of wine and aperitif over 5 bills. Older crowd but it was mid week.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 10 Friends on Friday nightBarbDined on 4/25/2014A group of 10 middle-aged friends descended on Mistura this Friday night. The waiter Chris was fantastically patient with our group decision-making process, made great wine recommendations and kept the atmosphere light and friendly. The food was some of the best Italian food we had ever tasted, and most of us have been to Italy for extended periods. Capping off the experience was the appearance of Massimo at our table, then we chatted with him at the bar at the end of the night (we were the last guests in the place). While pricey, the food and experience made it worthwhile.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fabulous Food, Exceptional ServiceOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 4/17/2014Favourite Dishes; Beet Risotto Pancetta wrapped Cornish Hen Everything on the menu is always absolutely delicious. A great selection of wines for what ever your budget permits.Special Features:
- city gem!RiskmannDined on 4/4/2014The 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!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
