I was introduced to F'Amelia less than a month ago, and this was already my second visit.
First visit was the daily seafood feature: seared tuna, spicy risotto, olive tapenade - soooo good!
Second visit was the eggplant parmigiana pizza I'd intended to have the first time (before hearing about the tuna) - glad I stuck to my plans this time, also delicious, and generous enough for a take home slice left over.
Friends on both visits also enjoyed their meals.
Prices are quite reasonable.
Beer list needs some oomph; wine list is good... longer than the food menu!
Definitely worth repeat visits!!

We went mainly because of the very good rating in Toronto Life. They do really know how to cook pasta. Some of the portions were miniscule - - seared octopus starter has one medium tentacle and some salad for $17. One of us asked if she could get the scallops without cream -- after checking with the kitchen the server said they could substitute the risotto with tagliatelle. We got the 2 scallops with a few strands of pasta -- no vegetables and no bay scallops as was in the original dish, and the bill included a supplement for the change! Rabbit was very good, but gargati quite ordinary. Then, yes they could offer a non-dairy desert, lemon sorbet. We received a very plain dish of lemon granita -- what is often served between courses, and were charged $12, the same price as the baked/fruit desserts. (I suppose the pizzas are a better value here.) This is a casual place with four-star prices. Furniture is old, the room needs painting, and some of the white plates had black blotches showing their age.

The food, especially the house-made salumi, was very good. The room was very noisy when we were there, which made conversation difficult. The wait staff have an "I'm too cool to pay attention to you" attitude, which marred the experience.

Excellent food. Some of the best Italian we have had in Toronto. However we felt the price was high for the casual/ neighbourhood style ambience. Would go back far more often if it was cheaper ($140 for two adults and two children).

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and is on a cute street in Cabbagetown. The food was ok but nothing amazing. My scallop risotto was bad. The scallops were fine but the risotto was soupy and lacked flavour. I don't live very close to this place and I don't think I would go out of my way to visit again unfortunately.

F-Amelia is a nice little place tucked into a side street. Anything that is not on a main street and a little different, I like. It is in a house, so is unique, small and cozy. The bar is nice and small. The food and pizza was quite good and its nice to be able to see it cooked in the wood oven in the open. The staff were attentive and helpful. The wine list is excellent and varied. Tanya, the manager is excellent, organized and helpful. Would recommend

We have been to F'Amelia previously. On this occasion, we had mushroom soup, salad, lasagna, garganti with fennel sausage.

Everything was delicious and the service was great, even with a busy room.

Highly recommended!

Absolute delightful experience. Pasta menu is heavily meat-based, but chef accommodated us vegetarians and my dish of linguini & tomato sauce was very flavourful. The Tiramisu was outstanding. Fun atmosphere and excellent service.

Great food, super efficient service, however even though I had asked for a high chair for my 1 yo child, they only had one and even if I was at the restaurant first, another family seemed to have priority over the high chair and I had to give it to them after a bit and try to feed my child on my lap. Not impressed that they only have 1 high chair.

A friend and I had dinner here on a Saturday night. Great service, took a bit to get our first drink but the service was great after that. Very friendly and even took our coats :) We were seated by the door which was a little cool at some points and sort of loud but we didn't mind too much. We both had pizza and it was absolutely delicious!

Food, ambience, and service are great, but the experience was dimmed somewhat by paying for water. The offer was for filtered still or fizzy, for $2 each, with tap water not mentioned as an option. When the bill came, it was $3 each. I was also upset by the price of the wine. I chose a medium priced one, but after the server's glowing description of a different one, I ordered the one suggested. It didn't occur to me to ask if it cost more, and the server never mentioned it. It turned out to be the most expensive on the menu. It really was good, but I felt I'd been suckered.
