We have been to L'Unita several times and always find the staff warm and friendly. We love the food, and the fact that serving staff are knowledgable about every item on the menu. And who can argue with half-price wine night? We recommend this restaurant to friends often. We brought an important business contact to L'Unita this week knowing we would be proud to say this is one of our favourite restaurants! Thank you!

But just a bit noisy and hard to hear. Noise baffles would be a good idea.

Consistently very good.
Food was delicious, and half-price wine (for the entire list!) on Tuesdays made this more of a treat than it usually is.
Only annoyanvce was that the server clearly thought he was cooler than everyone in the restaurant, but was not by any means. The Rosedale matrons two tables over were cooler than he was...

We had such a wonderful meal here. L'unita is a small Italian gem in the Yorkville neighborhood of Toronto. We had the antipasto plate and octopus and chorizo to start, AMAZING!! The antipasto plate was explained in detail down to the crispy pigs ears, we were split 2/2 on the crispy pigs ears. My husband had the Italian sausage pasta, loved it. Step-daughter had the lobster pasta, she didn't share :( Step-daughters boyfriend had a pizza, he seemed to enjoy it. And I had by for the best meal, a Fred Flintstone sized pork chop (bone in), with crispy polenta red pepper, puree and vegetables. A great bottle of wine and fantastic service. We will be back if we are in Toronto again.

Inviting spot with a great vibe the Friday night we were there. Service was friendly and informative. Menu not extensive but really good choices - Tamworth Pork and Short Ribs to perfection. Definitely plan to return!

Just as good as the first time!
This was my second time at the restaurant - this time there were 5 of us (last time 2). Everything was excellent - wonderful food, excellent service and a really great ambience. My favourite Italian restaurant in the city!

Nice to be back!
I almost forgot how much fun this place can be! Food is always consistent and menu changes regularly to offer variety through the seasons. The L'Atomica pizza, sweet pea arancini, arctic char crudo and pork chop were amazing. The best part of the dinner was dessert. The doughnuts with mascarpone and caramel were out of this world. Great job again!

Gem hidden amongst mediocrity
Despite the chi-chi reputation of Yorkville, there is a shocking lack of options for good food - lots of mediocre to atrocious restaurants abound, most of them over-charging for the slop they serve up. But L'unita is an exception - excellent food, excellent wine selections, cheery and helpful staff, with prices that are reasonable for anywhere in the city.

This was the first time I
This was the first time I had been to the restaurant, and I took my girlfriend, expecting a nice quiet romantic spot, and that's exactly what it was. Food was great, cocktails were awesome and the service was excellent. You'll spend money there, but it was worth it.

Another great experience at l'Unita
I took some colleagues from out of town to l'Unita on a Monday night and, as always, it impressed everyone. I was the only person that had eaten there before and was confident it would be well received ... and it was.
Exceptional food, good wine list, great service, great decor ... a solid 9 out of 10 every time.

Although there was a small misstep when our bottle of white wine arrived room temp, the manager quickly rectified it and brought us a well chilled bottle right away. Food arrived very well-timed and everything was delicious. Some guests mentioned their entrees were a little salty. Great desserts (try the panna cotta). Noise level was definitely 'energetic'.

Italy in Ontario!
L'Unita is a must for locals and out of towners! From the front door I felt transported into an Italian bistro. The wine list was most impressive and the waiter perfectly paired our pasta with a delicious medium bodied Merlot. The pasta dishes were outstanding...very authentic. The pizzas were also a hit at our table as well as the salds and warm olive appetizer.

I loved the cushion behind
I loved the cushion behind my back making my seat very comfortable. The salt cod fritto was amazing. Went with a group of ladies for Summerlicious and the service was outstanding. Being a Tuesday night, they had several bottles of wine for half price which was a bonus. Several of us had cocktails which were good, but I found very pricey. Had the steelhead trout for my main and it was very tasty. Everyone loved the ricotta fritters for dessert.

An amazing experience
It was our 10th wedding anniversary, we picked this place by reading the reviews.. for sure it was the right choice. Romantic restaurant , amazing food and amazing service. Being a vegetarian we had a concern on whether there would be enough options.. but we had no issues.. the pasta of the day was superb and so was the gnocchi in our main course. panna cotta was fantastic - wine choices were good too.. definetly a place to visit again

Neighbourhood gem with great food!
We introduced our brother to his new neighbour with a gift of dinner at L'unita.
We had been there with other friends who live in the Annex and had loved it.
Summerlicious Menu was delicious! Our brother loved every bite and we know he'll be back with friends and of course back with us!

Second visit and the noise
Second visit and the noise level was much more acceptable. The owner was very present and greeted us when we came in, cleared plates and served us to assist the server. Server was lovely and informative. Food was excellent. Obvious care taken by the kitchen. The restaurant is pricey but clearly the food makes it worth the money. Would definitely return.

Best pasta I've had in years
The food at L'unita is consistently excellent, the wine selections interesting (and delicious) and the service is personal and professional. What a nice surprise to find something so affordable and good here in Yorkville, given that most restaurants in this area serve terrible to mediocre food for a snooty price!
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
amazing tuesday night
Half price wine bottles on tuesday nights. Really tasty fresh pasta. Not the best pizza in Toronto but still really good! Very busy and fum on a tuesday night.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends and I had such an amazing time dining at L'unita! We were given an amazing table that was set up perfectly for our good friends going away dinner. The service was exceptional and the food was to die for. With myself and the majority of my friends being Italian, we loved the Italian movie posters hung on the wall and just the overall interior of the restaurant. Thank you for an amazing night and I look forward to coming back soon!!!

Film Fest Dinner
Group dinner after a gala screening. Food, service and ambiance were spectacular. Great value and well chosed wine list. Our favorite place to dine when in Toronto. A TIFF tradition.

Consistently Delicious & Welcoming
I have dined at L'Unita many times over the past number of years, and it is consistently fantastic food and great service. It is a great place to catch up with a friend. It is vibrant but the noise level is not too loud for talking.

Bar Service Incredible
Our new favourite place to eat at the bar! Fantastic Barman, great selection of wines by the glass and grappa/single malt scotch. Really cool vibe. Loved it.

Service and food were both awesome. Had the gnocchi and it was fantastic. Good selection of wines. Will definitely be back.

A Real Gem
My husband and I were introduced to L'Unita about 4 years ago and have been back many times since for business dinners, gatherings with friends and family and of course for the special treat on Tuesdays. L'Unita has been our easy "go-to" as well as a favourite for celebrations. The quality of food, the service and the ambience is always above average and consistent.

What a service!
The restaurant is very nice and cozy. The people are amazing, the food is great too except I won't order ribs as I didn't like the taste as much. The appetizers and pizza were super good! We will definitely return.

One of my favourites...
I love this restaurant. Cozy, lively, such friendly service, great food... Upscale and yet unpretentious. Everything is just right!

Enjoyed another great meal; David and his staff are great hosts. The food is as good as it gets!
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Found this little place via Google, had heard good things about it. Went there as a party of 8 with guests from Montreal after a long day at an event - could not have picked a better spot to relax and unwind! Fantastic food, our server was super friendly and personable, helpful at recommending food and wine choices. We had a reso at 8:30pm on a Tuesday evening - place was not too busy but definitely some groups here and there. Lovely atmosphere whether out with friends, colleagues, family, or on a date. Make sure to get the Arancini appetizer with black truffle and honey sauce, was excellent! And the pumpkin doughnuts for dessert. Will definitely be going back there.

After several years L'Unita is still going strong. Fantastic charcuterie ... Great service and BYOW corkage option is an added bonus!
