    This is a local unpretentious but terrific spot for freshly made delicious Italian food at a most reasonable price nested in the heart of Yorkville. The service is friendly & accommodating. A great find.

    While visiting Toronto, we decided to try the restaurant. It was worth the trip. Service and food was quite good. Our appetizers and dinners were excellent! Good for Sunday meals.

    The Summerlicious menu was very generous, more than most, but the quality of the food varied. Main course of salmon had no taste, and the dessert too sweet. The house wine is mediocre, and the mixed drinks don't seem to contain much alcohol. It's possible the pasta is better. $2.95 for an undrinkable, single shot decaf Americano topped it off! Overall, a disappointing experience.

    I picked it in a hurry as my friend and I decided that afternoon that we would eat somewhere in or near Yorkville. I was leaning towards an Italian and this was one of a few that showed up in my search. since I only had a few minutes to make a decision, I chose it, thinking that it would not be too bad, given its location. The rack of lamb was too dry. the pasta was overcooked - more like a diner's style of cooking. dessert was good.

    I have been to many of restaurants in my time, but i have never experience anything like i did at Toni's. I'm not one to pick on the small pesky things but these were just too much. we we asked what do you want to drink, i than asked what do you have? hoping for a menu... she responded anything you want... not impressed. So she blurped out sangria so i agreed to it. Sangria arrived appearance was ok, took a sip something off.. then i saw that there was watermelon in the glass so i tried to retrieve it only to note that it was slimy as in old. Dinner was a bust, i order eggplant parm and i got skins parm. awful! had the waitress take it back and bring me a pizza that took forever to arrive. All in all the worst dinner experience I had.

    We were seated downstairs, where there were only 4 tables. We were the only people seated down there for the duration of our meal (another table was brought down but they opted to leave since they couldn't get a seat upstairs). I didn't mind it as it was quiet and we were able to talk and hear, since the upstairs was loud. it did feel a little like "Grandma's basement". The food was not spectacular. I didn't enjoy the app or main too much, but the tiramisu was fantastic (and i usually don't like tiramisu). I had the mixto platter & the veal parmesan with spaghetti. Both were 2.5/5 for me. My friend's had the salmon & the pizza, with spinach salad, & they both looked pretty good (we were there for summerlicious). The service was good.

    We had a lovely meal. The service was excellent and the food was Devine. The potions were great. I only wish I could have taken a doggie bag for my leftovers. However we were at a hotel and no way to store it. We will go back if we are in the neighborhood again.

    I had reserved a table for 3 as I had 2 guests who were visiting from NYC. The caesar salad(s) and warm spinach salad were excellent however the veal & risotto mains were at best "so so". The three of us left underwhelmed and as the host I was quite disappointed.

    My friend and I went there for a pre-theatre dinner. We arrived early and were happily accommodated. Staff were sensitive of our time and served our meals after making great suggestions. Wine was very nice in the price range that we were looking for and complimented the meal. We had a pasta dish with a salad and the pasta was perfect and the pasta sauce was incredibly delicious. We had to leave just as things were picking up in the restaurant but I would have liked to linger.

    Went for dinner Friday before show at Panasonic and had a great dinner I started with bruschetta which is great for sharing and my husband had asparagus soup both where great. I had the mushroom risotto which was cooked perfectly with lots of mushrooms and my husband had jambalaya pasta special which was very excellent. We had a half litre of their California red wine which was recommended and it exceeded our expectation. We shared the tiramisu for dessert, which was as good as I remember it. The portions at this restaurant are generous and the service was excellent.

    Enjoyed a bottle of wine with calamari appetizer, shrimp and scallop and mediterrano pizza for mains (split). A very enjoyable and relaxing pre-concert dinner. This is the second good dinner we've had here recently. Toni Bulloni's will be our "go to" place when we are looking to dine before an event in the area, but would not necessarily be our choice if dining out is the "main event " of the evening

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/1/2014
    We ended up at Toni Bulloni on a whim before a show at Koerner Hall. It is right around the corner so we did not feel like we had to rush while eating. The food was excellent, the service staff was amazing. Our waiter spent a lot of time going through all of the daily specials with us. The mushroom risotto was fantastic. The menu description of it was funny and a little disconcerting ("trust us") but definitely worth it. Lots of options for vegetarians and they were more than willing to make any of the pasta dishes without a meat option, which is nice to know. Great beer and wine selection.

    Dined on 7/20/2013
    I went here for Summerlicious because the menu looked quite interesting. Sadly, it did not meet expectations. I ordered the Funghi Alla Fiorentio, the Lamb Shank with Garlic Mashed Potato, and a Tiramisu. The appetizer was quite well done. The ingredients worked well together, but I feel the mushrooms could have been sautéed on a higher heat to improve the flavour. The lamb shank was quite nice as well, but the mash that came with it was quite lumpy and tasteless, almost as if it hadn't been seasoned at all. The tiramisu was the most disappointing bit as the cream was watery and tasted as though it had been frozen. My friend ordered a risotto off the regular menu, and it was not creamy at all. Overall a disappointment; would not go again.

    Wouldn't pay regular prices but at $25 for summerlicious, it was OK. The food, seriivice and atmosphere is average. We were there early on a Saturday night and were immediately told that the lamb was not available and they did not have 2 out of the 4 dessert options. When we got the tiramisu it was clearly only half a portion.

    Went with colleague for Summerlicious 2013, getting complementary Brushetta (both of us), as appetizers Baby Arugala Salad (her) and Fresh Minestrone Soup, as main Penne Alla Vodka with Rose Sauce (both of us), and as desserts Tiramisu (her) and Creme Brulée (me). Although I don't lunch often in the Yorkville area, this was definitely one of the better experiences I had, despite the warm summer weather.

    Service was good. Waiter was friendly and helpful. The lady who refilled the water was a bit cool; polite but never cracked a smile to our table! Food was well-timed. We especially enjoyed the pizza. The tables were a bit too close and we could here the entire conversation of the next table. The dining room was quite warm yesterday. More ventilation and air conditioning would make the environment more comfortable. ( we sat at the very back ). Overall is very decent.

    2 of us shared a bottle of wine, an appetizer and a dessert, plus an entrée each. The bill was around $200 with tax and tip. The food was excellent -- so flavorful! I had steak with fries while my partner had a seafood pasta dish. The serving was nice and big and the service was good. I had a reservation for 7:30pm but we were seated at 8pm. That's my only complaint really.
