A night out with friends
We went with another couple on the Saturday night of the May 24th weekend, so it was pretty quiet. We sat inside, adjacent to the large open doorway to the patio.
Three of us ordered off the Pice Fixe menu, 3 courses for $25. The food was excellent. Fresh made pasta was delicious. The sauces used to flavour up the pastas were not over done. They were just enough and not too heavy. Desserts were all tasty and well prepared.
Our service was very good, though we did wait quite a while for our bill. The atmoshpere and decor of the restaurant was trendy and comfortable.
If you are looking for a very good restaurant at a reasonable price point I would recommend you give it a try.

Enjoyable dinner out!
This place has great food at a reasonable price and a lovely ambience. It's has a large capacity and could accommodate big groups yet still manages to have a cozy feel. Definitely recommend you try it.

We needed a spot for pre-theatre and tried Forget About It for the first time. Food was excellent with a more 'rustic Italian' menu. Finally - a salad with just the right flavour of balsamic and the complimentary pizza appetizers were a pleasant surprise. My Italian husband said the seafood linguine was one of the best he's ever had! I tried the Bracioli and it was delightful!
We were pleasantly surprised to find a Barbera at a very reasonable price! Staff were pleasant, helpful and efficient without hovering - a great bonus!
We will definitely return for our theatre nights and any other time we get the opportunity.

Great before theatre
Great dining experience before attending the Prince of Wales Theatre. Four of us had three different entrees, and all raved that ours was the best. I didn't know how delicious parsnips could be. Going back next week with a different group, and looking forward to it.

Gunshy at first!
Made a reservation online 45 minutes prior...chose by location and a quick scan of the online menu. When we arrived there were only a few tables occupied in a rather large restaurant, thought not a good sign!
We were VERY wrong! Food was great....service low key an prompt....and it did fill in later.
We will return!

Consistently great before the theat
When we have Mirvish tickets, we now just book into Forget About It....no more looking around. If you're lucky enough to get a good evening, you can people watch outside on the patio, but inside is just as nice. Consistently great food and service. Try their specials...three courses for $25. We take the whole family and it doesn't break the bank. We've been five times in the past 12 months and I always look forward to it. Would highly recommend it.

A Good Choice
I was in Toronto for my birthday with friends. As a native Torontonian now living outside the city I wasn't sure where to book for dinner. This restaurant was close by and turned out to be a great choice. The food was really tasty. The common bruschetta was even above average. Only downside was it is a big space and seemed quite empty. Guess they get a late night stand up crowd.

Perfect for Dinner before a Show
We all tried a different a la carte offering and all were very good.

Girls night out
As soon as we walked into the restaurant we felt it was a special place, lovely deco and a quiet atmosphere; so we knew we would be able to talk and be heard. We loved the curved banked seating. The waiter was attentive and we didn't have to wait very long for the food. Two had the fettucine alfredo which was excellent, the veal parmegiano was a big hit. My rigatoni with sausage and spicy sauce was OK. Our first cup of coffee was not hot but the second cup was good and hot. The tiramisu and crème brulee were to die for. We would definitely come back.

Before Theatre Dining
My daughter and I had dinner before attending the theatre. We were late for our reservations due to Friday night traffic. The staff were very accommodating and made sure we would make curtain call. This was our second visit to the restaurant which we stumbled upon in the summer one evening. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, love the décor. Location is perfect for theatre goers and anyone out for a night of entertainment. Food is delicious and fresh made. Wait staff are very attentive without hovering. They have an option for an amazing 3 course meal for $25 a person or order off the menu. I would highly recommend this little gem!!

Good for pre-theatre dining
This is a mixed review, mostly because of the service. We were greeted by the hostess wearing a ski jacket, mitten and toque. Automatically our visit became about her being cold by the door. If she had to wear a coat, perhaps a nice dress coat? The hat and mitts were unnecessary and it's weird being handed your menu by someone wearing mittens. The server's first question was if we were going to the theatre. I wish we'd said no because from that point on it was like a race to see how fast he could get us through our meal and out the door. The ambiance was lonely, nicely decorated cosy. There was some sort if incense/ freshener burning which was pleasant at first but I'd had enough of it by the end of the meal. The food was very good.
