A word from Tutti Matti
Tutti Matti serves traditional, authentic Tuscan cuisine, prepared using only fresh seasonal ingredients.
Everything is made in house, including our fresh breads and pastas. Some dishes are permanent productions of our kitchen — gnudi, pinci, papardelle, tagliatelle. Others are more seasonal, like stuffed zucchini flowers in the summers and polpetta and hearty soups in the winter. From day one, we have served venison, wild boar, fennel pork sausage and we love to produce delectable trays of antipasto, which change seasonally and daily (sometimes even mid‐service!)
Discover a great list of Italian wines, carefully selected to match the flavours and spirit of Tuscan food.
Tutti Matti has been hailed by critics and received both local and national awards, including the prestigious 2009 "L'Eccio D'Oro" for Osteria of the Year (an award previously won by Mario Batali and Alain Ducasse).
Located downtown Toronto, steps from the Theatre / Entertainment districts.

    I visited there to enjoy summerlicious with someone on mind at the evening last weekend. The appetizer and main were excellent! We had chosen different dishes and both were delicious. The desert which we ordered same thing was good but we expected more sweet things. However, We enjoyed wonderful meal and wine at that moment.

    My first time dining at Tutti Matti. I loved the vibrant atmosphere. The food was wonderful - three courses for a fair price. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the short ribs were excellent. The service was friendly and prompt. I will definitely be going back to try other dishes.

    I have to say that the food was absolutely amazing!!!! Would definitely go back. I also loved the atmosphere. One note is that we were there for summerlicious and were on a timeline. We work at King and Bay so the walk to and from was a bit long. We ran out of time for dessert and even though we said it was ok and declined dessert, our server insisted on packing up our dessert for us. Am I ever glad she did.

    Four of us went for summerlicious and all of the food was spectacular. I would return to try something on the main menu. Only thing is that there aren't enough gluten free options so if they added some it would be great.

    I understand that it was summerlicious and being a group of 5 the service was bound to be a little slower than usual but our server was none existent. We had to ask to order drinks and then again to order food. She stated the specials incorrectly and was chewing gum loudly. She didn't remember what anybody ordered and had to tell her where to place everything. We got some attitude when we asked to order like if we were putting her out of her way. It took forever to pay the bill. Hopefully next time we'll get a more experienced server....if there is a next time.

    We had sth to catch up at 8pm so I told the server to get us the dessert assp when it was 7:40pm. The server looked really really anxious for us and then run to the back to get us the food. I was so touched with this: best service ever! But the food... is not as good. I think the portion is too small... I got very hungry at 11pm after having 3 courses at 8pm... I don't know whether this is because of the Summerlicious thing... But overall, I feel good.

    We were throughly impressed not only by the attentive service we receied from our waiter but also by the food. We were seated promptly upon arriaval, and from that moment, our waiter along with all of the other staff there were very attentive. At one point, i turned out to check out the restaurant, and the waiter thought there there was something wrong, and rushed over to make sure we were fine. The food was also fresh and tasted just awsome :) we will surely return!

    Our visit to Tutti Matti was in thanks to the Summerlicious event. The food was very tasty and artistically presented but the portions were very small leaving us contemplating grabbing a snack at another restaurant. It was very loud inside with all the chatter and a pretty difficult to carry on a conversation.

    We had fantastic service. Our waiter was just the right level of attentive, giving us time to talk and eat, but still keeping things moving at an appropriate pace. The food itself was also fantastic. Personally, I had the prosciutto and mozzarella appetizer, which was delicious. My honey glazed pork chop main was cooked perfectly and was incredible- my brother had the same for his main and said the same things, so they're definitely consistent as well. The only disappointment I had was my dessert. The chocolate and rice torta was very well made and nice texturally but it didn't have a lot of flavour. This may have been a personal taste issue- the other two desserts that were tried by my dining companions and both were enjoyed immensely.

    Had dinner at Tutti Matti recently. Service was friendly and professional. Room was pretty basic in terms of decor. Food was very expensive for the small portions received. Every dish was under-seasoned which made for a bland dinner. This was particularly noticeable with the pasta course. The pasta water was not salted enough, and the finished pasta (noodles and sauce) lacked flavour. I had read good reviews of Tutti Matti, however, my experience was disappointing. Will not go back and will not recommend.

    Food chosen was excellent and portions abundant. Service was excellent and our waiter suggested the wine which was a perfect fit with the food we ordered and reasonably priced. It's to bad the restaurants decor does not reflect the quality of it's food. But rather pay for excellent food than decor.

    We eat at Tutti Matti almost once per week. Chef Alida Solomon's cooking is truly authentic. Her portions are meant such that you can enjoy an appetizer, main and dessert. Split one of the pastas before your main if you are truly hungry. There are always a couple of specials that augment the already solid menu. Seneca is one of the best front of the house guys that we've ever met. Engage with the wait staff, chat with the Chefs at their open kitchen and enjoy truly solid northern Italian cooking. Molto bene!

    We were in Toronto from Edmonton for four days, and Tutti Matti was recommended to us. It was an amazing spot for a special Italian dinner, with outstanding food and service. It brought back memories of our trip to Italy the month before. It did get a tad noisy towards the latter part of our evening, eliminating the ability to have a private conversation. However, we would go back, given the opportunity as the food and service really was Outstanding!

    Tutti Matti is consistently great. The menu changes, so it makes sense to check out new flavours. It's rare that we are not moaning about something. Our waitress was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine. We had fish and it was prepared to perfection. The pasta was outstanding. We are bringing other friends next week.

    Tutti Matti is on a bland stretch of Adelaide which is even more forgettable due to the endless construction in the area. Which is a shame because I find the food to be consistently excellent and so superior to the other restaurants along the same stretch of king west.

    Food was delicious. Everything is freshly made in house. Service was ok. A bit slow, had to ask for more bread, poured our own wine. I can get over that cause we were having fun and were not in a rush. What disapointed me was that our server did not like that I asked to put the alcohol on a seperate bill. It seemed too complicated for her. Again, most restaurants in Toronto don't split bills but I think it's a shame when Micros and Maitre D' (computer systems used in most restaurants) makes it so easy for you to do so. Why is the customer accomodating the restaurant when it should be the other way around? We had a great welcome but leaving with a bad impression unfortunatly negates everything else out and does not entice you to go back.

    We had dinner there recently, and we had the short ribs, with the scallop dish. The short ribs and reduction were quite good, but unfortunately the wine by the glass wasn't memorable - in fact, the most expensive wine by the glass had to be sent back it was so terrible. Not off, just terrible. It was replaced with a Sangiovese, which was drinkable. The scallop appetizer was interesting, but the scallops were quite small and hard to identify. The dish just didn't present well, but was reasonably tasty. Overall, I was looking forward to a great dining experience, but was left wanting.

    Never dined before, took a chance on read reviews, and glade we did. The food was excellent, just portioned right and full of flavor. The service was excellent, always attentive to our needs and we never had to ask for anything as the waiter was always a step ahead. The chef was walking by and she even took time to tell us of her travels as we were admiring the photos in the dinning room. Will dine here again and again.

    We had been to Tutti Matti for lunch and enjoyed it, but dinner was a different story. Slow service, barely Luke-warm food, scallops that were not fresh - chewy and fishy - and poor wines by the glass. Very poor value for the money.
