I definitely enjoyed it!
It was a quiet day but the service was fine, the food was tasty, and we had a very nice early dinner. I would like to go again!

The food and service was great and the portion to price ratio for what we had was great value for our money.

Second time there...food was
Second time there...food was fab both times. First time Insalata Alla Montagna - added salmon so made it an entree - was great; this time the Linguini Monte Mare - again, great. Service also top notch (thanks to Ryan)- flexible, accommodating,recognized our time limitations. Only complaint is the coffee - way too strong/flavour not good; otherwise - will def. come again when downtown. (And a major consideration...they validate parking!)

We visited Toronto for the first time and had a taste for pizza and we were able to get in on short notice. Vibrant crowd, good drinks, good pizza and good service....would definitely recommend.

Great Sunday Afternoon Lunch
Went for lunch on a Sunday afternoon and what a wonderful surprise. Both the food and the service was top notch. My wife had the Lasagna and I had the Vitello Alla Romana and both dishes were outstanding. We had it with a bottle of the house Valpollcella which was excellent.
If you are looking for some decent Italian food in the St. Lawrence Market area you will not go wrong here.

The food was very good and
The food was very good and the servers were friendly. My only issue was that they were having an event that night and anyone one who wasn't apart of it had to sit in the bar which became a bit cramped. Otherwise, a nice evening.

An Italian neighborhood gem
Great little spot for quiet Italian dining. Cool ambiance. We visited on a Sunday at 4:00 pm, big event day, super sunny so there was no one. Just us. The park is right across the street with the hustle and bustle of families, kids and dogs. A local place but super close to Union Station. We walked to and from the subway. The food was authentic and plenty of it. Our daughter had a cheese pizza made just like she liked it. Thin crust, bubbly cheese and crunchy crust. Not a bit left. Caprese salad was fresh, drinks cold, wine list had plenty of good local options. Good price and value. Service was good--just needed to notice little things like silverware and napkins on the table. But super friendly which made up for it. Thanks!

REALLY NICE TOUCH!
I'm not one for posting reviews but this place was a pleasant surprise. It was a random pick for dinner because we needed to be in the area. The food was fantastic & we're picky about Italian. The meal started with warm fresh made bread & continued with superb quality & satisfying quantity... get Antipasto Misto. The service was excellent. Prices were reasonable. Unfortunately we had to run to pick up our kids before we were able to enjoy a nice espresso & dessert ... the server was attentive enough to notice and gave us a Tiramisu to go...REALLY NICE TOUCH!

Good food, great location & setting
Although the food was very good (I had lamb and my girlfriend had a pasta dish) the service was not as great as I expected. When entering I usually expect to be seated by a hostess, yet there was none to be found and we had to wait a couple minutes for someone to see us waiting. I understand it was a sunday, but I still expect service. The waitress was friendly and knowledgable of the menu making for a pleasant night. I would feel happy recommending the Vagabondo to anyone looking for a nice night out wether for drinks at the bar or for a quite date.

A quality downtown restaurant
Vagabondo is in a good location near the King Edward Hotel and the Sony Centre. I had the fettucine Vagabondo which was covered with chicken pieces, sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms and tomato sauce. Very tasty! My wife had the veal piccata which came with a variety of vegetables. We enjoyed the gelato topped with blueberries and raspberries and whipped cream. We were well served by Steve. I was glad when they turned off the hip-hop music and turned on the Italy-Japan soccer game. The restaurant had a European atmosphere. We were happy to find a quality restaurant downtown.

bread to die for
The food is great but the thing that you will fall in love with the most is the fresh loaf of bread that they bake. In all my years of dining or,never have I enjoyed bread so much that I asked for seconds. Great food and friendly service but the ambiance is a bit too plain.

I had a great time here. I
I had a great time here. I threw my girlfriend's bachelorette dinner here and everyone seemed to love the food and the drinks. I had a pizza. It was big!
It was kind of cool that we had our own area of just us girls. It wasn't a busy night in their restaurant so they were able to do it. Our server was so sweet. She did her quality checks with us and was overall really pleasant. Overall the experience was good. I'd recommend this place for some yummy Italian.

Came back after a pleasant romantic first time... this time we hit the patio as the weather was beautiful! Couldn't ask for a more pleasant experience; the staff is always so friendly and the food is spot on. Can't wait for for the third time!

Dining as a Couple
We rarely go out for dinner so we were excited to meet downtown and go out as our children are away at this time of summer.
As the maitre de took our name, we were pleasantly surprised with a quiet atmosphere and nice ambience. The waitress who served us was very courteous, humourous and catered to our every need.
The only exception while dining, was we were sitting in the small secion for @ 18 and an employee who was facing our table in the long hallway was chatting on his cellphone, so I could not hear my husband. We didn't say anytihing, but if he had not left, I was ready to ask the waitress to ask him to talk quietly or move away. Other than that, I feel we will return and enjoyed our visit.

Delicious mushroom risotto, very fresh trout prepared perfectly. Outdoor fountain makes summer eating a pleasure! Very nice, attentive, knowledgeable servers.

Great service and food
I attended this venue with my girlfriend before a show at the St. Lawrence Centre. We were seated at the lower lounge area which honestly isn't the best (Way too close to the bar), but they do have seating at a higher level that is probably a lot better. The service was incredible. Staff helped each other with tables and we were definitely taken care of. The food was outstanding! I'd definitely recommend this place to food lovers looking to grab a quick bite in the city.
