Diner Reviews
  • "Good food,attentive service,pleasant ambience,very enjoyable evening"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "I went to this restaurant when it first opened and it was so busy ou could not walk around. The bar was full and very noisy. The food was not great and they got my order and a few other orders wrong. We were 10 of us. I finally went back on a Friday night and it was half full. Bar area empty. However, it was still noisy as hec but my food was delicious. I would try it again considering its very close to home and this last visit my meal was very good."

  • "I had a great grilled branzino fish meal, as recommended by or server. In addition, the suggested wines were excellent. It was my 5th or 6th time at Sarpa and, in my opinion, it has surpassed Terra in terms of quality and service. Great spot!"

  • "Service is excellent and foods are great too. Although they don't have kids menu, they can custom make the portion for the kids."

  • "We went early on a Saturday as we had small children. Everything was amazing, the food and especially the service. They went out of their way to accommodate us. The fish was fresh, the wild boar ragu pasta was a hit all around. We have been many times and Sarpa never disappoints. We never miss a chance for the flourless chocolate torte."

  • "We were seated right at reservation time. Food was good but pricy. Service was really slow. Waited close to 90 min to get main entrees and then one dish was under cooked and taken back to kitchen which ruined it for our table. "

  • "Great food. Great wine list. Great Service. Great ambiance. Nothing bad to say here. A special thanks to Frank the bartender for the drinks as well to top it all off. My girlfriend and I had a blast. We'll be coming again. "

  • "I chose this restaurant for my birthday as I have been a fan of Terra's. Glad I did... Everyone agreed the food was wonderful. I had grilled sea scallops for app, penne a la vodka for main, and warm chocolate cake with gelato. Cappuccino was nice and foamy. Everything else tried a different dessert and no one wanted to share!! My sister and her boyfriend came from downtown and were impressed by the quality. "

  • "Mothers day is a busy day but even so the service was wonderful and the food was of excellent quality though we found the appetizer menu to be somewhat limited."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I know, I put that it is both romantic and kid friendly. It seems like a bit of a paradox but I've been there with my kids (they love it!) and I've had romantic, intimate dinners with my wife as well. They can cater your experience to either. As for the restaurant itself, the food is excellent. Top quality ingredients with great flavor and wonderful presentation while not skimping on quantity. I've never had a bad meal at Sarpa. The service is excellent as well with attractive, attentive staff. Everything is very proper while still being friendly and warm. It has been a wonderful find for us as we live in the neighborhood. It is a downtown dining experience in the 'burbs."

  • "food was ok, not great, service was adequate but not worth the $250 for table of 4 four dinner. Music was too loud, pasta choices need to be spruced up overall was just ok not sure I would return."

  • "small portions at big prices taste disappointing "

  • "Everything was good, the food was very good. We had to ask them to find us a decent table to sit at, but after that everything went well. "

  • "Very expensive menu and a very limited wine menu that was way over priced as well. Meal was horrible , veal chop way over cooked for medium rare came med- well done . Not a satisfied customer . Ambiance and decor is very chic however I came to enjoy a meal instead left very disappointed "

  • "Great service and ambience. Food was ok but could be better. Sauce with scallops was too salty and the squid ink pasta was quite bland."

  • "Food is amazing. Had fantastic service and the atmosphere was so nice. This is our second time here and it won't be our last."

  • "I had the whole grilled snapper, was amazing. Best restaurant around."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Service excellent, Over Priced bar like $20 for a single malt scotch. small portions for the price and not the best for that price, I expected more after reading views and was disappointed. Gnocchi was good but you could count the pieces. Veal Parmigiana needed more sauce and cheese. Goat cheese salad excellent. They should call this French / Italian that way Italian food with really small French portions."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Service was little slow, but overall a great meal. Well prepared, wonderful appearance and great taste. Among the entrees our group ordered were a perfectly cooked sea bass; veal milanese, boneless chicken and the filet. Every plate left the table clean. Our waiter recommended the Heba wine and it was delicious. A little bit on the pricey side but always a good meal with friendly staff."

  • "I've been to this restaurant several times before, but this time was for my boyfriend's birthday and the food was absolutely spectacular! Great for a quiet family dinner or a couples night out! Great food, service, and no city traffic!"
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "everything was great except for time management. Waiting 30mins for my 9:00pm reservation is ridiculous. yes it was Valentines, but maybe a bit more focus on customers rather than squeezing that extra table in"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We were very excited to try a neighbourhood restaurant that was highly recommended to us. We had a lovely evening, however, we felt that the restaurant had over-booked and jammed in extra tables to maximimize on the Valentines Day dinner crowd. We were stuck by the door at a table for four. Our waiter, when he attended to us was very polite and attentive, but left us alone, mostly. I would give it another try, but I sincerely hope that the inches between tables was only a temporary effect."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was done well, but it was slightly overpriced and the service was lackluster. We also had to wait despite being on time for our reservation. The ambiance was great and I'd recommend coming here for special occasions. If you like good food, it's worth a try!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Not what I had expected for this price point. Artistically the environment and platings were nice however the food did not while me. My veal chop was nothing spectacular and the sides are small. Emphasis on too expensive for what was provided."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It was a very busy night, being Valentine's Day, and a full house. I have had much better service here previously. The food was quite good. The service was a disappointment."

  • "We had the family home for the weekend and decided to go to Scarpa. We weren't disappointed. Food and service were excellent!"

  • "Best food and service around! If you haven't been, you must go! Call ahead as they are packed everytime we go."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "This has been a go to place for us since it opened. We love Italian food and this restaurant doesn't disappoint. The staff is friendly but can be distracted when there is a full house, so place your order when your server is at the table. There are often parties of 12 dining here for birthdays which can slow down the kitchen. People bring their children and there can be a problem with them running around the restaurant. Not always, just on occasion. We don't care how cute and beautifully dressed your children are, t's not a Chuck E Cheese, parents. The wine list is a page with a number of good Italian wines to compliment the cuisine."

  • "A local place that is both romantic AND kid friendly. The menu is excellent and the only difficulty is choosing what to have. We took my daughter for her birthday and it was lovely for her, as a vegetarian, to have several choices."

  • "We have dined here before and needless to say, we came back because of the exceptional food and service. We were celebrating 29 years on Dec. 29th. Our waiter brought us complimentary champagne at the end of the meal. The grilled calamari app. was delicious as was the Branzino. The prices are not cheap, but the serving sizes are generous and the quality of the food is excellent. Service - attentive and perfectly timed. We will continue to support this fine "north of Toronto" restaurant."

  • "This was our first time dining at Sarpa, I took my boyfriend there for his birthday. We enjoyed the whole experience from the decor to the food. I'm so happy that I have now found a nice place to have good Italian food close to home. We both really enjoyed our meals. Our server was very nice and attentive."

  • "We had a reservation for Saturday at 8:30 pm. Unfortunately a snow storm had begun a few hours before. As a result my girlfriend and I decided to go have our cocktails at Sarpa. We arrived about 35 minutes before our reservation. I announced our arrival at the front desk. At that point forward the young lady informed me that our table would not be ready on time as the people were late due to the storm. With a little pre-planning we were early. From there it was all downhill. Could not sit at the bar... private function. Could not wait at an empty table.... they were reserved. If we sat at a tall table while we waited we would have to stay there. This week we are taking 6 people for dinner on the eve of Hanukkah ... elsewhere."

  • "This was the sixth time I have been to Sarpa and I have never been disappointed. The service is always great and the food as well . On this occasion the waiter went beyond the call of duty. There was a freak snow storm and I did not have my snow brush in the car. He went out in the cold to get his brush and lend it to us."
