Food was ok my pasta was to much al dents to the crunch! Nothing to talk about. And the service was not that great to much waiting in between! The waiter seem confused had to ask what kind of wine I was having and asking other clients around other stuff he he was forgetting! And by the end I had asked for my bill did not want to wait any longer. He did not even offer any suggestion for dessert or coffee. No great customer service.

We shared the gnocchi which was unbelievably delicious it melts in your mouth . Unlike other gnocchi it was made with Ricotta .Main courses my wife had the Veal scallopini which was cooked superibly soft and just the right spice just excellent I had the eggplant and zuccini parmescian , the dish was very well prepared I felt it was lacking a little spice (ie pepper or salt ) which would of made it perfect . We shared the pistachio cheese cake which was true treat for our taste buds, rich and favourable. Our waiter was excellent kept our glasses full of water, explain the menu was attentive and very pleasent.
Wine I felt was a little over price $14 $15 for 6oz glass
Overall great experience.

This restaurant is upscale, but the fare is worth it, and the service is very good. Tony was both attentive and entertaining.
One caveat would be the wine list which was quite expensive, with only one wine at $50 and the rest a lot higher.
Francobollo is definitely recommended for a special occasion.

Francobollo is a cool little restaurant on Avenue Road, just south of Wilson. Although the room is long and narrow with a low ceiling the use of a mirrored ceiling, light colored walls and white furniture make the ambience cosy and pleasant. I had a good view of the kitchen and it was entertaining to see the chefs busy at work. The menu is interesting with lots of choice. I had the sea bass which was cooked to perfection while my wife had a lobster pasta dish which was authentic and delicious. I recommend this restaurant which is a little pricey. The team know exactly what they are doing and I think you will enjoy your visit.

In addition to their normal Canadian Burrata, they had an Italian Burrata as well... They were both great - however the Italian was out of this world smooth and tasty!!

I took a friend for a birthday lunch on the recommendation of my sister. The ambience is quiet and charming. What a pleasant change to be able have a conversation with your guest and not have to shout over “background”music. The service was excellent and we loved the food. I’ll definitely be returning.
