Took my mother who was in town visiting to this lovely spot and we had a great time. I went there based on the online reviews and was not let down at all. Service is amazing! Food was perfect. Thank you!

The food is classic comfort Italian with great sauces and fresh ingredients. The room is very comfortable and the soundproofing is terrific, you can have a great conversation even when the place is packed. Staff are very professional and attentive. Prices are reasonable. Really a great find.

This was my second dining at Baldini. It was another lovely experience! The ambience is cozy, warm, and elegant. The food is absolutely delicious! You can taste the time and effort put in to preparing it! Authentically Italian. The service was pleasant; our waitress genuinely took care of us. I rarely re-visit a restaurant. If I do, it has to be a pretty outstanding place. Baldini definitely is. I am happy this gem of a restaurant is in Toronto. I will definitely recommend it to many people.
Sincerely,
Shivanthi.

Best Italian food I've had in a long time in Toronto and we eat out about once a week with a third to half those outings being Italian. The food is impeccable. Well presented plates. Flavorful. Pasta WAS al dente (the way it is supposed to be) !! Portions were good amounts for both appetizers & mains as well as salads. Service was very attentive throughout the meal. This was our second visit but it's now going to be a regular on our route.

We went to Baldinis or dinner as it was local and had decent reviews. It was good to go somewhere where you could talk without being drowned out through ambient noise. The food was very tasty with adequate portions and the service was attentive. A very pleasant experience and we will definitely return.

I really like this place. But I wondered if this was under new management? The new waitress seemed to rush us out in the end. Seemed as though we were keeping her from finishing her shift for the night. We come to Baldini’s every year before the holiday officially begin and this time we all felt rushed out. We are there to spend our time and money for good service and food. Perhaps the service needs a bit help in taking care of their clientele. Thx!

Each of the six dishes our party ordered were delicious. The waitstaff were lovely. The downside: we waited an unconscionably long time between placing our orders and being served the food, and being late in the evening, we were the only party in the restaurant.
