Our book club, consisting of teachers and a principal, who all worked together at a neighbourhood school, loves everything about the restaurant. It's quiet, and we can hear ourselves in conversation. Both the food and service are excellent. The variety of offerings on the menu gave us plenty of choices. The food was delicious, and the price was right. We have come to Baldini's restaurant a few times in the past and will continue to come in the future. It was a lovely, tasty experience. Bob Jennings

My wife and I have been to this place at least twice a year for the last 5 years or so and each time has been great....except the last time. Nothing major just a few little things. Prices went up but portions were smaller, forgot to bring bread to our table, I had to ask twice, and the seafood pasta which my wife always order, didn't taste as good. We'll see what happens next time we go.

Authentic Italian!
I lived in Italy for a few years and this just took me right back there. Authentic Italian cuisine, attentive service and intimate atmosphere. I will be back 100%.

Service was impeccable, especially at the doorway! There are two steps to the main restaurant and the wait staff helped to get my wheelchair in and safely out again! So excited to have tried this restaurant for lunch as there are not many options for semi-accessible lunch-time venues in Leslieville. The food was delicious and we'll be back again to try more dishes, a dinner or three in future. Club sandwich was the best I've had, ever. Reasonable prices, many food options (many courses, if desired), full linen service. Not very busy so enjoyed a leisurely lunch, with attentive staff.

The food was okay; it didn't blow me away. The portions weren't that big either, and it was pricey for what you got. The decor and ambiance were 'tired' (to say the least). Our waiter was great, so the service was the saving grace. But, I probably wouldn't go back or recommend to a friend.

We tried the special pasta dish, which had a veal sauce. Very deep rich flavour and quite yummy.
The wait staff was pleasant and refilled our water glasses regularly but never topped up our wine glasses.

Parts of my chicken were raw and I wasn’t going to complain but just inform our server when he asked us how everything was. He never asked how everything was, even when I handed him my plate with pieces of uncooked chicken breast on it.

I won’t be going back to a restaurant that fails at both of those duties.

I absolutely love the ambience and the low light setting. It makes the restaurant feel very homely and intimate. I wasn't bothered by how busy it was because my partner and I had our reservations on Valentine's Day. The waiters were very friendly and communicative. Prices were a bit higher than average but reasonable. Overall, the food was delicious, appealing and filling. I love the rosé and the apple Chardonnay wine! Definitely would recommend to others.

Enjoyed dinner last Saturday night before a show at Crow's Theater around the corner. Very enjoyable dinner. Food was great and our server Warren was very helpful, pleasant and entertaining. All four people in our group enjoyed their dinner and no complaints. Would recommend this place to our friends. It is not very large, but it was a pleasant experience.

Reminds me of a neighborhood bar in New York city, warm and inviting. Yummy comfort food. Love the Veal, and specials are always good. Tables are tight, but that gives off cosy vibe. Friendly servers.

Went for New Years prix fixe menu. Atmosphere was lovely, service people were nice. Food was not as expected, and it felt rushed through the seating. We were hoping for good food with an a Italian flair. It was our first visit and it was disappointing. Not sure if we’ll give this restaurant another visit.
