The atmosphere is casual and inviting, with jazz and Italian music softly serenading you in the background. Our prices are very welcoming as well. We are a family friendly restaurant.
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.
Had to wait for reso but made up for it with glass of wine!
Always a great meal and awesome time spent with friends. Service is perfect, very attentive.
Great, casual Italian food in a relaxed environment—good pasta and pizza.
Always a great experience. The server, Patrick, is amazing and is focused on the customer is amazing.
Both the food and the service were really good. It was our first time visiting your restaurant, but certainly won`t be our last.
It was quiet, comfortable and the service and food were first rate. I have told 10 friends about Baldini since Tuesday. Will definitely return.
Love this restaurant and the food has always been very good. Server Patrick, working on his own, did an excellent job. He was friendsly, helpful and professional...
Baldini's is one of our favourite Toronto restaurants. Service is always top-notch (thanks Patrick!), food is consistently delicious, and ambience is very relaxing.
This is one of our favourite restaurants. Our meals are always excellent. Great value. Pasta is always done to perfection. Servers are friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend.
The staff was very friendly and professional a great place to dine and probably the best Italian food I have eaten ANYWHERE!
Always love this cozy place, the fish was over cooked. easy to do, I have done it ! I'm sticking with the veal and pastas. Always very good.
We love Baldini’s! The food is exceptional and service is wonderful. We will go back soon!
Had a great family dinner. Food and service was wonderful.
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.
Great food, great service, great ambience - we couldn’t have asked for anything more!
We have been to Baldini’s on two different occasions and experienced excellent service and the food is outstanding
Cozy spot in Leslieville. Delicious food! Highly recommended.
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.
I came in with five other rowdy girls for my going away party and we couldn’t have been treated better
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.
Had a lovely dinner with my family - great, traditional Italian food in a quiet neighbourhood spot. We plan on making this our "regular" for family dinners out.
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.
Wonderful evening. Great service, ambience, presentation; all four of us enjoyed it. One detail: the fillet mignon was a bit tough. Everything else, perfect.
Totally enjoyable evening. The food was wo derful and the servers were excellent, friendly and attentive.
Great spot and great service. We had a larger group and all meals came out warm, together. Patrick our server was great.
Incredible service and wonderful food! The restaurant itself is cozy, so make sure you get a reservation. Patrick, our server, was amazing - very attentive with great food suggestions. Thanks for a lovely evening, we will be back!
Excellent food and wonderful service. Patrick, the server, knows the menu so well and always helps us choose a wonderful dish.
Excellent food and ambiance! Had the grilled calamari and the seafood risotto, both perfect! And is located only a short walk from Crow’s Theatre!
We love this restaurant. It's a quaint spot in the heart of Leslieville. The items always come out delicious.
Service is amicable, cordial and impeccable
Love going there in good part because of the service
Amazing food for great value! Our server, Peter, was efficient and friendly. Great night out with friends.
Fabulous as always.
Went for a birthday dinner and was greeted upon entering. I had requested a corner/private area during reservation, but that wasn’t done. We ordered a few apps including the olives, a Cesar salad, garlic bread. The olives were delicious, the salad was okay, but the garlic bread was grocery-store-frozen Texas toast, something not expected at an Italian restaurant.
Our entree were both pasta dishes, one was Penne in a rose sauce and the other was their Vodka Penne. Pastas were cooked well (would have appreciated house-made pasta) and the presentation was nice. The rose sauce was good, but the Vodka sauce was lackluster.
Went to order dessert asking for the Panna Cotta and Tiramisu. They were out of the later and the Panna Cotta was subpar - more of a mousse than anything else, truly disappointing.
Overall it was a good experience. The staff was friendly and the ambiance was pleasant. Food was alright, but nothing special especially with so many proper Italian restaurants in the city.
Fabulous as always. Patrick is attentive and professional. One of my top ‘go to’ dinners.
We arrived just after 5:00 p.m. ahead of the crowds so the ambience was very quiet. I have always enjoyed having business lunches here but this was the first time for dinner and they did not disappoint. We all thought the food was excellent.
As usual the food and service is outstanding. Very nice place.
Terrific meal and excellent service are to be expected when we dine at Baldini’s and it never disappoints. My partner is a vegetarian and there’s always a couple of satisfying options for her and the wine list isn’t extensive but it is well thought out and definitely good value.
The food is always good and we can’t say enough about Patrick. He is amazing!!
