We’ve had such a good time at Ascari Enoteca. Thank you for the experience. Everything was very delicious. Can’t wait to try the full menu.
Honestly the service was pretty awkward and there was miscommunication on out times. Our server told us the table ahead was a no show and we were welcome to stay however long we wanted. We proceeded to order take out as we were told we could stay longer. Then not 2 minutes later was told we had to leave as the next table arrived. No communication from the hosts or servers and when we expressed our displeasure we were met with silence.
Food was so good - great service- still my favourite restaurant!
Delicious food and wine, and a gorgeous patio. We found that the 1.5 hour limit felt very rushed. Such a shame to gulp the last sips of excellent wine - hoping the management might consider lengthening this limit, especially for those still eating/drinking. Otherwise, a lovely evening. The mushroom pasta is incredible!
Amazing food , service and loved the patio.
The server was knowledgeable of the food and wine to make delightful recommendations
Too bad we had an unpleasant server, but I guess we went there for the food vs the service.
Lovely atmosphere with very tasty food. Knowledgable staff with wine and drink recommendations and very friendly service. the restaurant feels intimate and is great for a nice dinner out or date.
Waiter was really unhelpful and lacklustre. Service declined significantly, didn't explain any of the dishes. Sat on the patio where there is zero ambiance or music plus uncomfortable chairs. Definitely better inside and perhaps there is new waitstaff due to COVID turnover. Food is always fantastic, but came very very late.
Quite pricey for pasta. Very small menu. Wine was priced at 4x retail which was extortion. Great service but we had to leave within 90 min so quite rushed.
Exceptional service. We were very happy with our experience.
Food was delicious. Service was great. And felt safe and clean with all protocols in place.
Outstanding food, and service. Great pasta and wine selection.
The menu was lacking in protein choices - even with a smaller menu due to pandemic, it would have been nice to see a pasta dish that had red meat in it as an option rather than two vegetarian options and one with guanciale in small bits sprinkled throughout.
All of our pasta dishes came out so salty that it was tough to eat. We ordered two of the carbonara, one of the funghi and one of the puttanesca. I do realize that guanciale and pecorino together can have a salty profile, but then balance the dish accordingly so that you don't feel like you're eating a block of salt.
Our server did his best to substitute a less salty dish for the funghi, but it was still over salted. He was knowledgable and accommodating to our many requests which was appreciated.
The appetizers were the best part of the meal and drinks were good. If you book this resturaunt, stick to the appetizers.
We were served by a woman who was absolutely wonderful, she went above and beyond to make us feel cared for from beginning to end, checked in often and was very kind and thoughtful. Lovely food, atmosphere and service as always.
All good! Noise level too high for a good conversation though.
We were there for our anniversary during the beginning of stage 3 opening. The food was fantastic as always, and the service was impeccable.
Just perfect. The tiramisu was especially knock-out!
Awesome service and the food is amazing as always!
Looking forward to when new menu items are added.
Other than the mushroom pasta, the food was really good! Our server was so kind, they even let us have our dog by us.
As always Ascari and all their restaurants are spectacular. It starts with great service and moves to creative wines and cocktails to the most yummiest of food.
Incredible meal. Staff are amazing, very kind and helpful. We can't wait to come back. Highly recommend! :)
Our beautiful server allowed us to try a couple of wines - both her reco - both amazing. Food was impeccable as always. The patio ambiance is lovely. Great night. Thx.
Thank you so much for being so great! So sorry we kinda lingered at the table. Really appreciated everything!
I’ve eaten all over the world and Ascsri is as good as any Michelin rated restaurant as far as food quality goes.
The chefs are top shelf
Could be the best Carbonara in Canada.
Excellent food, incredible service, fantastic experience! They were so accommodating to dietary restrictions and careful with allergies. Can't wait to go back.
From start to finish, everything was great. Server was very attentive and everything flowed smoothly. I’ll definitely be back.
Outstanding food and great service
Our favourite restaurant! Wonderful service, delicious food and wine once again! Looking forward to coming again soon. :)
Ascari Leslieville has been our favourite restaurant in Toronto since we started going there (~10yrs). Carbonara boxes and your cases of wine got us through the winter but we were so happy to get back and share the experience with the amazing team at Ascari Leslieville! Thank you for another fantastic meal!
Delicious Italian food in a pleasant and COVID safe setting (tables are spaced apart nicely). Service was perfect - attentive but not overbearing. The carbonara never disappoints.
Amazing food amazing service.
Great food, great service! We will definitely be back
Great dinner for 3. COVID safe and amazing food and atmosphere!
Amazing to be able to still dine out during this crazy time. Food was great, Covid precautions in place and the patio heaters made it warm enough to be able to enjoy the meal.
Well executed food, excellent service in an intimate setting. Very interesting selection of wines.
One of our favourite local restaurants...never disappoints ❣️
outdoor dining was warm and safe. love this spot and they have done a great job accommodating during these tough times.
We were there to celebrate our 24th anniversary with our kids. The food was excellent and the ambiance was wonderful. The new roof and outdoor heaters kept us warm enough to enjoy a 3 course meal and after dinner drinks. The chef was swift and precise with bringing our food and describing the dishes mindful of the cold weather. Thank you Ascari for making our celebration so special 💕👍🏼
