The best risotto in the best
The best risotto in the best in the city, specifically the Mushroom and White Truffle, which is finished in a parmesan wheel. It is so flavourful and cooked to perfection. And the parmesan that is scraped into the dish is just the perfect amount. They have a very reasonably priced wine list, with a wide variety of Italian wines, all separated by region. Try the buffalo mozzarella wrapped in proscuito. I could have eaten another order.

Excellent home cooKed italian meals
Food was superb and the service was excellent. Our waiter recommended some appetizers for the group and we were not disappointed. Would definitively return. Bravo!

Excellent Food, Poor Service
I would return to get more of the wonderful food we enjoyed, but the service was very poor (slow and inefficient) and distracted from an otherwise enjoyable meal.

Excellent, as always
Love the very, very thin crust pizzas; both red and white varieties are great; one of our favourites is prosciutto and arugala. Relaxed, casual atmosphere. Rick was welcoming and attentive. We really enjoy our meals here and at every chance we get, recommend to our friends and family. Really love this place.

A slice of Italy
This restaurant has been a hidden gem in the market district for many years; hidden around the corner from the vibrant St. Laurence market bar scene (on King street), this restaurant attempts, and achieves to recreate the feel of an Italian country restaurant. The food is fresh and hot, delicious pasta and superb risotto are the top choices for the authentic experience.
Have no doubts, the food, and just as importantly the service is amongst the best in the city.
There are a lot of Italian restaurants in Toronto, many are very good and some (including Paganelli's) are excellent and we will be enjoying another meal here as soon as we can!

Glad that it's truly authentic
Surprise to find a truly authentic Italian meal in a downtown core. Met other tourists who were equally amazed at the flavors and excellent service (some older guy, not much to look at but provided superb service!)

Very good food and service
This place has a great look, excellent waiters, very good food, a good wine list. We had the house Valpolicella, excellent, but a little pricey for house wine. The food is may be a bit overpriced for the portion size, but not exorbitant. Clearly, the food quality is above average. It was a little loud; they could use some kind of noise dampening if possible, but again, not a deal breaker. Overall, this is a good place for a "special" meal.

We had 4 people in the party, ordered 4 different dishes, everyone was very happy with their choice. Great food for sure. I didn't even want to share their signature dish - Strangle the Priest pasta, so good!

Great food & service
Had dinner with customers looking for something for everyone to enjoy (Italian was easy). Excellent food and service was very professional and took attention to manage all details. Excellent Italian wine choices and with multiple courses timed each perfectly based on when people we done. Been to this restaurant before and was not disappointed again.
Perfect choice when you are not 100% sure of what the group may like.
