We love food. We love wine. We love racing. So we named Ascari Enoteca after one of our heroes, 1950's Italian racing legend, Alberto Ascari. He was as famous for his appetite for food and wine as he was for his talent for racing, earning him the nickname "ciccio" – Italian for 'chubby'. Here you'll find homemade pastas made fresh in house every single day, plus a unique wine list.

Ascari has been awarded one of Canada's Neighbourhood Gems by OpenTable and Best Italian Restaurant in Now Magazine. We look forward to hosting you!

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.

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.

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.
