Nice ambience and service. Always a nice place to enjoy a relaxed long lunch.
My second visit to Biagio and well worth it again. My steak was slightly overdone but not so terrible that it needed a do-over. The cheesecake for dessert was among the best ever I’ve had. Our server, Tony, was friendly and schooled us on many cuisines which was unexpected and enjoyable. I will definitely be back.
Fantastic selection of wine and food. Very authentic cuisine. We booked very late and his restaurant did everything they could to accommodate us. Fantastic find we'll be going back for sure.
great food and great service as always! food is excellent!
Attentive service, very good food. Pricey, however.
The restaurant atmosphere is lovely both inside and out. A charming building across from a lovely park and a pleasant short walk from the bustle of Yonge Street.
The pasta is average and certainly not any better than what you could easily achieve at home only with larger servings. And that bothers me. It's just pasta! It costs nothing! Throw in a little extra to properly fill the plate thereby allowing people to feel that they are receiving value for their $28.00 menu item.
But what's really annoying is a certain veneer of arrogance from everyone connected with the establishment. It's almost as if they resent your presence. The sense conveyed from the waiters is something like this: "I may be just a waiter and you may be able to afford this meal better than me, but I have more class than you - in Bourdieusian terms, "disinterest" - and that gives me more cultural capital than you".
The thing is for those us who live in the market area, it's there, handy, swank enough to impress your guest(s) and an easy walk to and from just about anywhere you reside in the market.
On the whole, my take on it.......so-so.
We went on a quiet Wednesday evening and there was no one in the restaurant. They made us Bruschetta after we asked but we found the menu was really limited for those who are lactose intolerant - and was different to what we viewed online. The wine menu was ridiculously expensive. There are many more Italian restaurants in Toronto which are much better!
Amazing experience. Food, service and ambience are above the rest.
Good friends. Showed them a special place
