The food here is outstanding.
The food here is outstanding. Prices are high but are justified by the quality of the food. Service is friendly, fairly casual but very professional. About the only knock is that tables are close together and wine-fuelled conversations can get very loud. On a weekend, not the place for a quiet, romantic dinner. But you can't beat the food.

Great as always ...
When you dine with friends, it is nice to not worry about where you are dining and simply enjoy. You can do this Mistura always ...

Food was great as was the atmosphere.
The only downside was the waiter who thought he was funny and was not.
Service could have been better but would go back despite the so so service.

We celebrated our anniversary at Mistura and we enjoyed it thoroughly. The food was amazing and our waiter Thomas was very knowledgeable and attentive. We would definitely return to Mistura, no hesitation.

It was our first time there.
It was our first time there. As it was our daughter's birthday, we wanted some place special. They didn't disappoint. My wife's duck was superb and the pasta was melt in your mouth. Can't wait to go back. If we were not from out of town, we would go once a month.
It made our weekend, still talking about it.

All is good !!!
The staff contnues to impress as they do their best to attend to your needs as a customer of this boutique restaurant. My favourites include great pastas with unique but simple preparations of fresh local ingredients as a main course. Will go back anytime !!!

Another amazing evening @ Mistura
My son discovered this restaurant a few years ago and we return once a year to enjoy the "Mistura" experience. From the time you arrive to the time you leave, the service is outstanding. The ambience in this restaurant is wonderful and the music in the background is very nice. Although, as the restaurant got busier and the noise level increased, it was more difficult to hear the music through the speakers (understandable). The food here is amazing and you can see and taste how fresh the food is. We've never had a bad meal/experience here......I guarantee that you won't be disappointed.

Our second visit. Aside from a minor wait for our table , the remainder was excellent in every respect. Will return without question.
5/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We've been wanting to come to Mistura for sometime to try Chef Capra's restaurant. Well it was worth the wait!! The food was spectacular and would satisfy any foodie. The wine list was extensive and the staff was knowledgeable in pairing which wine to go with dinner...the light chocolate cake to finish the night was a nice touch was we were celebrating my wife's birthday. Massimo himself even came out greet everyone and stopped by every table for a short chat...overall a great experience!!

Great food and service
Went on a Friday at 7 and the atmosphere was great. Got a little noisier when it really filled up at around 9. The risotto special was outstanding. Service was spectacular. Would certainly return.
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Appetizers were absolutely incredible. Loved how the left side of the menu was classics and right side seasonal. Amazing ambience. Service was OUTSTANDING. Our waitress got Massimo to come to our table - incredibly phenomenal man. Will definitely be back.

One of my favourites
The service is always excellent and unobtrusive. The fish is always perfectly cooked.
6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superb and balanced
With a regular and chefs menu, there is a choice between the tried and tested favourites and seasonal items (although the regular menu is also seasonally updated to reflect availability). Excellent wait staff who are knowledgeable, engage and don't rush you. Usually very busy so needs booking in advance. Decor is easy on the eye. Excellent fresh pasta (including the TDF beet risotto). The slow cooked halibut is delightful. Desserts a little expensive ($12) but delicious and large enough to be sharable.

Limited Menu Options
Limited Menu Options
Of Course its Overpriced, but one assumes that, when they make a reservation there ( being owned by a Top TV Chef) TV Gives the Chef a LICENCE TO STEAL!! In THIS case The Portions were EXTREMELY SMALL! But with GOOD FOOD, its KIND of OK??
Its a Fun Place Ambience Wise... Massimo comes out to say Hello, One persons fgfood in my party was Not Extra hot ( But Not Too bad, and Everyone elses was great) Pricey Pricey Pricey. Not ALL that I Expected, but OK. Small Portions, Great Servers, Pricey, But it is what it is,,.. Again Not so happy about LIMITED MENU OPTIONS - But that's what a Joint like this is!!
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything was absolutely delicious
Had the scallops... Awesome. Milk and honey titled dessert was sensational. They also have the hard to find duckhorn decoy Cabernet. Thanks for a great evening and dining experience!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
One can get so spoiled if one is given exceptional service, food and surroundings. And I can say, "Mistura spoiled me AGAIN."
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Reliable food and service
We enjoyed the seared scallops (crispy sage a delicious touch) and the tagliatelle bolognese (perfectly flavoured meat sauce). Shared the yummy brownie for dessert.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
My favourite restaurant
Only been here once before (about 6 years ago) and it was great. Expensive, yes, but worth every penny. I was so intent on coming again now that I'm back in town for a short time that I braved the massive rainstorm (July 8) to get there. An epic odyssey but totally worth it!
7/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had high expectations of this restaurant as it is owned by Massimo.
I found the food disappointing. Admittedly it was Summerlicious but is that any excuse
For blandness? Not in my books. The best part was the watermelon salad. The lamb tasteless
So will I return. Probably not.
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
2 friends and I went to Mistura on Wednesday July 10th to try their Summerlicious menu. The starter pasta as delicious. The sausage was cooked perfectly and there was just the right amount of spice to the dish. My main was the fish. The chickpea patty was much thicker than I had anticipated. At home we make a similar chickpea flour "pancake" which is thinner and not as soggy so I was a little disappointed. The highlight was dessert. Lemon riccota cheese cake was tasty and had a perfect texture. The panna cotta was also very good.

summerllcious at Mistura
The service is very good, the food really fresh and interesting.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best in Toronto
My 4th time at Mistura & the food, service & ambience were amazing as always. Everything I've ever tried on the menu tastes fresh, unique & presented beautifully. The place is more on the pricy side, but you definitely get what you pay for.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mistura still a great spot!
We enjoyed the meal, food and preparation was excellent, would have liked a slightly quieter environment.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went there to celebrate my daughter's 27th birthday and it was a nice touch that the waiter brought her dessert with a candle and birthday wishes written in chocolate. Had a lovely meal! We will definitely be back! We've recommended it to friends and they've loved it too! Thanks!!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful selection, even
Wonderful selection, even with the winterlicious menu. Reasonable wine prices. Great restaurant to spend a romantic evening or to entertain guests.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Capra is a genius
Mistura is one of Toronto's very finest restaurants and it is a privilege to eat food prepared by a master like Massimo Capra.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a great experience when we dined at Mistura during Summerlicious. Looking forward to going back! The service couldn't have been better and the food was beautiful to look at and delicious too!

Fine Italian Dining
Overall Mistura is a pleasant experience for anyone who appreciates fine Italian dining. The owners are visible, warm and welcoming, and the setting is chic. The main dining area is rather small and densely furnished and would not be very comfortable if the restaurant was fully booked. The service was good and geared toward meeting the patron's needs and comfort. The food was good and the quality of the ingredients evident, although the flavour in a couple of dishes bordered on bland. That said, the wild boar stuffed agnolotti was exquisite with a rich jus that was exceptionally flavourful. The menu is a la carte and not inexpensive if you are wanting more than one course.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Incredible as usual ...
Old friends visit from several thousands miles away with great wine n food, it does not get any better.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food at Mistura never disappoints. If there are no seasonal/specials that you are interested in (unusual) there is always the "traditional" menu which has all the favourites. The beet risotto is unbelievable - we get it as a side to all our mains. The pasta bolognese was the most phenomenal we've ever had. Everything was incredible. This is quickly becoming our favorite fine dining restaurant in the city as the service and food are dependable and one of the few that are worth the extra money. It is our pleasure to continue dining at Mistura!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The entire food experience was simply delicious. This was a celebration dinner and it did the trick! Each bite of each course was worth savoring. The flavours were subtle, the portions perfect and the timing between each course ideal. The capriccio melted in your mouth, the beet risotto was creamy, sweet and yet delicate. It was my favourite course. The braised rabbit was also yummy but I would prefer the vegetables crisp not braised along with the rabbit. I found the rabbit a bit salty but I ate every bite and enjoyed it. The lemon posset for dessert was the perfect ending; creamy, tart a perfect contrast to the rabbit. We will go back as the aromas of the dishes being served around the restaurant need to be tasted!

The fried artichokes were
The fried artichokes were amazing and the branzino was very tasty. The service was really good. The lemon porset was the best lemon dessert i have eaten.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chose this restaurant because of Open Table reviews. Later found out that one of my work colleagues had sent a larger group of clients here (some time ago) for dinner.
The food was excellent. Well plated and just the right size. Everything arrived at just the right time. Good pace for dinner.
Nice wine list. A bit of everything for every price range.
I had asked and they produced the cutest desert for my husband (which he devoured).
Service was lively and very prompt. Took a while to get the bill, but restaurant had started to get very busy when we were leaving.
Nice small bar in the front, if guests arrive early. Dark coloured interior but had a nice European vibe to it. Roomy booths.
Look forward to visiting again.

Dinner with the committee
Had dinner at Mitsura on Aug 20th. Nice atmosphere, nice service. We shared 2 salads to start between 3 of us. The bought us tongs for serving and extra plates which I thought was an excellent level of service.
I had lamb, which was perfectly cooked as was the past and veggies served with it. The only negative critique is that they do not serve a half litre of wine, only 1/4. The creamy goats cheese with the beet salad had a beautiful texture but not much of a goat cheese taste, it was more like cream. Would go there again for the next event.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoy every time we go to Mistura. The staff are so friendly & make you feel so welcome. Our food has been excellent & we have told many friends to go there.

I dined at Mistura on September
I dined at Mistura on September 6, 2013. I enjoy dining out at Toronto's best offerings but for some reason or other never made it to Mistura. I was not disappointed. The food was delicious, well presented and wholly satisfying. I had the carciofini fritti as my appetizer...a simple dish, but a lot can go wrong with it, and they were excellent--I am craving them just writing out them! I opted for the halibut special and it too was well done. My son had the agnolotti al cinghiale--those were stupendous. My other son enjoyed the breaded veal loin. It looked a bit "mainstream" Italian but he said it was not "just" a veal with tomato sauce. The service was very genuine and attentive. I would highly recommend Mistura! Grazie!

Great for dinner mtgs!
The bartender was very welcoming while all our guests arrived and knew exactly what to serve to whom. Pleasant surprise! The ambiance was just right for a dinner meeting - strongly recommend this resto for such occasions.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was outstanding from the moment we arrived. The food presentation was excellent and was prepared to perfection Will definitely return and recommend to friends

I brought my mom to Mistura for her 59th birthday and it was outstanding! Everything was delicious and the service was great :)
I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Show off Italian dinner
My bf and I took my mom there for an Italian dinner. It's the first time she's ever been to an Italian restaurant so it's totally fine for her no matter what. I had a roasted rabbit and it was really really good. But it's still no better than the French roasted rabbit I have to say. My mom ordered a sea bass and it was kinda ok. The food part is fine but we wait TOOOO long and nobody refills the water... But overall it's a romantic place and maybe I should go with my bf alone =]
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Attention to detail outstanding, a great overall dining experience
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Warm atmosphere on a chilly Eve
Dining room is elegant, yet cozy. Wine list is vast. Service friendly. Sea bass has crispy skin and moist interior. Presentation of dishes, well done! Will return again.
