Diner Reviews
  • "Used to love going to Piacere. Ambience,and food not same quality it used to be.Not sure if chef changed or management,but did not enjoy. Staff very friendly and nice.Food edible but not enjoyable. This is second time been where food only "ok",so probably try other Italian restaurants next time."

  • "Decided to give this place a second chance, but they blew it. Had to send a flavorless chicken breast back, steak was way undercooked, server didn't know anything about prices or how food was prepared. Awful."

  • "This restaurant was nice, food was very well done. Service was OK but not really friendly. Dined here a few years ago and had not returned as the wait staff was really not interested in the customer. We tried again and over all was nice but no real interest in the customer. Will not return. They do obviously have a following of regular customers and it seemed a new customer into the group was not really welcome. Certainly their location is excellent, food was very good. Asking questions of the waiter who could not really give descriptions of how a dish was prepared, if you needed any grated cheese or additional touches you needed to retrieve yourself. They were just not eager to serve."

  • "Ok, so we had a good meal. All was prepared well with good quality fresh ingredients. I'd eat here again but it didn't have any particular stand-out feature that would make me rave about it (like Buca has) Service was knowledgable and mature, with a sense of humour."

  • "Piacere is my restaurant of choice. For business lunches, romantic dinners you name it, I have never had a bad meal there. The food is delicious and the service second to none. I liked it soo much I threw a surprise birthday party for my wife there and it was wonderful. It's truly a worthy dining experience"

  • "I'm not the one to give reviews usually but was very disappointed with Piacere. Service is clumsy, borderline fast-food operation. Food is mediocre, I'm not sure what's the hype. We ordered a variety of dishes from appetizers (salads, calamari) to mains (risotto, steaks, pastas) and it merely received an "okay" reviews from the dinning group. The portions are very generous though...we didn't stay for dessert. Overall, I won't return."

  • "Food was very good - generous portions. You won't leave hungry. Very accommodating staff - we had a party of 12. Curtains were put up to make our dining more private. This lessened any distracting noise so that we could talk and be heard unimpeded Wine choice was poor - the Pinot Grigio we drank tasted "off". We sent the wine back for but the new wine still tasted off"

  • "wonderful night out, appetizers and entres were excellent, but unfortunately the dessert choices were not very good and what we did order was awful. the fruit flan, obviously was pre frozen. just awful. i would go again for the meal but go for coffee and dessert elsewhere. the service was excellent and very friendly. no rush at the end we were able to sit and enjoy the end of the meal."

  • "Had dinner at Piacere last week for the first time. When I walked in I was surprised how nice the décor inside was, the exterior doesn't do it justice. We were greeted by a nice older gentlemen and led to a comfortable table in the corner. There appeared to be a group in the back room, that didn't interfere with our evening. I ordered the fish of the day which was done perfectly. The wine list had a good selection of wines all reasonably priced. My wife had the risotto dish which she greatly enjoyed. Very nice atmosphere would definitely recommend."

  • "Hubby and I went there for his birthday dinner. We were promptly seated as the restaurant was only about 1/3 full. Our drinks were taken care off and menus were headed to us. No mention of daily specials at all. I ordered seafood risotto while hubby ordered osso buco with fried calamari as starter. Calamari was just one big squid cut into pieces and fried, it tasted okay, definitely not the crispy calamari I was looking for. Osso buco tasted fabulous. Risotto came as the most glowing white plate of risotto I've seen. It was well under seasoned and did not taste good at all. Our waiter was very good and immediately replaced my dish with another dish of my choice, which I then chose to rack of lamb which ended up good."

  • "We were celebrating 2 graduations...the appetizers were not great...the mains were good the service wasn't very good As this restaurant was recommended to us..we felt very disappointed ps rating for noise level as quiet was due to the fact there were not many people there even though when I asked how busy it was that night I was told it was very busy"

  • "The Piacere was all mine. The restaurant offered a welcoming environment right when we walked in the door. The service was excellent. They were very friendly and offered my date options to her side dishes that are not typical to the menu. She was very happy. The food was excellent, some of the best in the GTA."

  • "We went to Piacere for my boyfriend's birthday celebration. When he arrived, he was in a bad mood due to his bad day at work. I was sure the waiters could feel his anger and fustration. They gave us excellent service, it was one of the best service I have experienced. The mussels and the speghetti we ordered was delicious! The pasta was especially chewy and not over cooked. And when we ordered dessert, they even played a happy birthday song and put a candle on my boyfriend's dessert. I think that really cheered him up and he left the restaurant happy. I would definitely go back again!!"

  • "We had dinner on a Saturday night with another couple. The food was very good however the noise level was a bit much. There were big group parties going on that evening and I found it was too loud, kids running around everywhere and screaming. I did not enjoy that part especially on a Saturday night. Because of this I probably would not go back if it was only Adults, for a nice evening."
