Really enjoyed our dinner. The food was delicious and service was great. The Burrata appetizer was beautiful and loved the flavours. The Tagliatelle with mushrooms was amazing also.

I think we were the very first customers for lunch hour, and we arrived few minutes early. They were very accommodating and polite about us arriving early. The owner was very nice and stopped by to ask about if everything was okay. Food was so so good, we had feature of the day dish, the spice level was increased as per our request. Both pasta and fish were cooked to perfection. Great choice of wine to pair with our lunch. Desserts was delicious. Cost $$$, restaurant
patio was clean and they are following covid restrictions and protocols. Will def. Go back.

Food was excellent very high end cutlery and plates. Server failed to inform us that our main didn’t come with a side so we had to order and wait for a side afterwards.
15 minutes before desserts arrived had to order second coffee. Server was not on the ball.
Otherwise great menu, great location.

Wonderful service, nice views of downtown buildings, and delicious food. Smaller portions, although the taste made up for it.

The overall experience was unforgettable.

The ambience was artistic, romantic and perfect for the space size and location.

The service was aways perfectly timed with a good balance of conversation and culinary expertise.

Lastly, the cuisine was like the pure authentic Italian homemade cuisine I grew up with or when visiting family in Italy.

Federico the head chef’s flavors are unforgettable, portions perfect and freshness unlike any other Italian restaurant food I have had in the city of Toronto, in a long time.

We are so thankful for the amazing experience and look forward to our next visit!

Had a great “last supper” before I head home to the states. It was VERY crowded and lively due to a concert at the arena, but service was still exceptional. I was extremely surprised at how quickly my food arrived, busy or not. The kitchen was very fast and the food was very tasty. I was seated at the bar, and the bartender who waited on me, as well as the hostess who seated me, were both so lovely and friendly! Overall an enjoyable dinner.

Really wish better service was given. She did not seem eager to be there and as if it was a bother when we asked questions. When we asked for a simple starter salad she recommended something that ended up being a very pricey item which we didn’t know until the end. Seemed like she was trying to make the most of her buck. We asked for something similar to a ceasar salad and she gave us burrata with tomatoes. We didn’t even like it so we felt like it was a big waste. Next time we’re staying in the area we’ll be looking for other options.

The restaurant is beautiful; the service was great, the food wasn’t spectacular or worth the exorbitant price. There is no washroom in the restaurant, you have to ask for a key which opens a public washroom out in the mall. Don’t be fooled by all the glitz, you’ll get a better meal at The Old Spaghetti Factory!

Our waiter was excellent but our dinner took almost an hour to be served. We had to leave for a hockey game so we had to eat very quickly. The food was very good but we could not enjoy it because we had to eat so quickly.

Service was good but food was very sub par. Portions were good size but didn’t finish the meal because the food quality was very poor Would have been willing to pay more for a better meal.

The food, service and decor are Extraordinary. They hire, and retain only the highest level hospitality professionals. There smiles are EPIC. My favourite place when visiting SCOTIABANK Arena for LEAFS/RAPTORS. I always order the steak FLORENTINE with flaming rosemary. It is a sizzle. Their pastas are ridiculously great (particularly the mushroom ravioli! This is a TOP TOP resto and they set the stage for an outstanding night. I have eaten here at least a dozen times. My guests and I always leave happy.

We had the Winterlicious menu. The polenta fingers were delicious. Main course was mushroom ravioli which was delicious as well. My husband had the monkfish and enjoyed it. Dessert was just the right size and very good, ice cream with bits of nougat.

Food and service were ok. The restaurant it very bright and modern, which is nice. However we were charged by having hot water and slices of lemon for $7 for 2 persons. We realized it until we saw the bill, no heads up at all.
