Best pasta in Toronto. Great wine selection. Waitress was great.
Birthday dinner with Mom. Great food and service was impeccable
Overall excellent experience. Would go there again.
First time eating here, our server was GREAT, so knowledgable about wine- it was very impressive. her knowledge made us try wine we never would have normally.
Food was REALLY good and wood definitely recommend to friends and come back to explore more meal options and wine you cant get in the lcbo!
Great service and atmo, excellent wine list - don't miss the Brussels sprouts, and make sure to buy beers for the kitchen!
We'd had the place recommended to us by another couple; so decided to give it a try as a walk in on a Tuesday night. Grabbed a couple of seats at the bar and got settled in. The service was knowledgeable and friendly (good knowledge of cooking techniques and ingredients used as well as the wine on the list). Shared a couple of appetisers: a nice seared heart of romaine with a light touch dressing of oregano and a second dish of some charred rappini. Both very tasty. I had a carbonara pasta - nicely authentic with guanciale and an egg yolk on top that you stir in to cook and add richness to the pasta. They did this with an untraditional twist - some cubed roasted squash. A nice touch. My wife had some pappardelle with slow roasted rabbit. the meat was nicely cooked (stringy and tender). There was some shaved cured egg yolk on top to add a little richness. Good value, nice atmosphere and solid food. Recommended.
The smell once you get in is just priceless. The service was extraordinary. The food was divine.
Amazing as always!
Great service, tasty seasonal dishes. My friend and I shared everything and had the Brussel sprout salad, olives, liver pate, and the beef cheek pasta special. We shared the cannoli dessert and that was the only thing that was just “ok” to me.
Went for a nice dinner with my wife. Food was delicious and the service was even better. Very cozy little Italian place. We would definitely go back and recommend.
Wonderful as usual. The food, the service and the ambiance are the best. Our favourite restaurant. Thank you.
Have had a number of great experiences at the restaurant from sitting at the bar for 2 to a friend's gathering of 6. Love the food and the atmosphere.
Fantastic service. The servicer was expertly able to describe the dishes and drinks. The pasta was delicious and not too heavy.
I've eaten at Ascari Enoteca on several occasions and it never fails to satisfy and most often delights. On this visit I had the Osso Buco and it was sublime. I'll keep visiting and I'll keep recommending it to everyone I know.
Excellent food and fantastic service! Would recommend this restaurant for sure.
Fantastic food and great ambiance. Our server Adrienne was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list, and made some excellent recommendations. Our new favorite Italian restaurant. A hidden gem! We will definitely be back!
Best pasta in Toronto by leaps and bounds. Incredible appetizers as well. They only take cash or debit but the pasta completely justifies repeated visits.
Still thinking about the food! So good! Will definitely go again. Thanks Tilly, awesome server!
Had a great time; excellent service
The only problem we really had was the cold from the door. Our feet were quite frozen, alas.
Service was much better on our first visit. This time there was a long wait to place our drink order, a long wait to place our food order and then the pasta in one of the dishes was over-cooked rendering it mushy. There was also very minimal checkin about our meal from our server. The chicken liver crostini and rabbit pasta were delicious and perfectly executed through.
This is absolutely our favourite restaurant! The food and service are always fantastic! The wine list could be more diversified.
Food is good, price is reasonable and the waiters are "awesome."
They should deserve much more tips :)
Another excellent meal and wonderful experience. Great, warm and knowledgeable service, and as good an Italian-inspired meal as any we had in Italy last year. A neighbourhood fave!
Awesome food and amazing service. Love the ambiance
Went for dinner with the gf, great wine list, great beers from Burdock, real tasty food and our server behind the bar was extremely knowledgeable and very nice. Portions could be a tad larger though. Great place for a night out!
The food, service, and Wine list were great. I found the tables were way to close together for my liking, I personally just don't enjoy sitting so close to others while trying to have a special dinner with my wife, especially when you're next to someone that talks very loud. If you're not bothered by this, it's my pet peave, than this place is great. Service and food were awesome.
Awesome establishment. Seated right away. Staff was helpful. Excellent lamb spiducci! Ordered a 2nd round after we annihilated the first serving. The pasta was unbelievably good! Will be back.
Thank you for a truly wonderful evening. We were six, four from out of town. They absolutely loved Ascari, as we do, for all the right reasons. Adrianne, our server, was the best. The food and wine was fabulous, the ambiance perfect. It was a very memorable night. Grazie, Ascari!
Great food, service, wine... all perfect except it gets really noisy when the place fills up!! Hard to chat when you’re shouting. Otherwise perfection.
Absolutely love this place and half price wine on Mondays is a great deal.
Excellent combination of delicious food, superb service and comfortable surroundings.
Creative and delicious specials.
Great handmade pastas.
Ascari has become my new favourite restaurant. I dine often with clients and Ascari is a perfect mix of casual neighbourhood vibe with impeccable food and service. I love it and having Adrienne enthusiastically welcome me is just the best.
We celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary and we're so happy to have picked this restaurant for the occasion. The food was amazing and the service was great.
ASCARI offers as authentic a menu as I can remember but uses them in creative new fashion. The carpaccio is wonderful as are the aranccini, but the star is their pasta dish. rare is it to find rabbit on the menu in this city and their homemade pappardelle with rabbit, cabbage and in a deglazed white wine sauce was excellent, same with the agnolotti stuffed with buffalo mozzarella, lemon, summer grean beans - such unique flavour combinations....the place hops on Monday nights because it's HALF PRICE BOTTLE NIGHT, a well thought out wine list with unique and rare Italian wines from all over the country....great congenial service , and a non's kitchen feeling that permeates the room
Very noisy. Couldn't hear oneself think! My wife had to send her main course back as it was dry and the pasta seemed to have been cooked ages before it was served. The server did know her Italian digestivi well and was very attentive throughout the meal.
Food was very good but over priced for small portion size. Excellent service.
Amazing food and great service
The food was amazing. Full stop.
The ambience was great, the servers were very attentive and the wine selection was generous.
As a small recommendation, I would suggest adding some full bodied reds to the wine selection (my personal favourites).
Overall, the evening was magical.
