We had a great time at Cinara and will go back for sure!! Although the place was packed and the staff extremely busy, the service was good and the food, delicious! Unfortunately, the tasting menu can only be served if the entire table takes it. On that matter, we would encourage the restaurant to add a note about this requirement on the menu. The presentation of some plates was also too simplistic but we definitely have appreciated every bite! Thank you Cinara!

This place is amazing. The ambience is warm and friendly, cozy for a rainy night. The staff are delightful and seem to go out of their way to make our night wonderful. The tasting menu was delicious, every single mouthful. We had duck ragu, liver patè, pork neck, and several other dishes that were brilliant. It’s a bit hard to get in but it’s worth not giving up. You won’t regret this night.

The food was divine! We ordered the Bistecca Fiorentina and it was amazing! The meat was cooked to perfection and the sides were very tasty. They also served us a delicious risotto while we waited for our bistecca (takes about 45 minutes to prepare). We also ordered the white anchovy toast and it was so tasty! Very recommended. If you are going to order the Bistecca Fiorentina, call ahead and try to reserve a steak based on your group size. We were a party of 2 and ordered the 40 oz. We had leftovers the next day! :)

Great small dish homemade pasta. Would have liked a little more colour variety on the plate as it came off very bland when I first saw it but the flavour was there. Got the chocolate cake for dessert and while it tasted great the cake itself was very dense which I didn’t expect.

Top notch service with amazing, creative dishes. I highly recommend the Carte Blanche where the chef prepares dishes based on the best available ingredients for the season. Italian tastes with Canadian New World creativity and perhaps a bit of French elegance and atmosphere as well. Great cocktails and a well thought out wine list. Bravo! We’ll be back!
