Great Italian comfort food. Love eating at a place that uses white linen tablecloths and napkins, along with attentive service.

Nice dinner - no loud music, just nice background soul music. Service was great and food was good. A good option for meeting friends who want to have enjoyable food and good conversation.

Originally had reservations at Drake OneFifty. Left after appetizer. Did not want to stay for dinner. Left and went to LA. Host and service were outstanding. Food was excellent. LA saved our night.

The food was fabulous and the serving staff was attentive and entertaining. The restaurant had a steady flow of peoples but it was easy to hear and speak with the people at our table. I have Ben there a few times and would definitely go back.

The restaurant ambience and food were above and beyond our expectations! Unfortunately for us we felt the server we had was sub-par. She was absent minded and we were checked up on by other service staff. Not sure if it was an off day for her, but I did get the vibe right from when we sat down in her section she wasn’t “impressed”...not sure about what but it shouldn’t have transferred to her service or to the guests.

Really enjoyed my meal at Little Anthony's; food was good, portion was generous and our server was great. Very professional and attentive. I reserved a table and ended up at the bar which was a bit uncomfortable as I have a bad hip and the noise level was pretty high which made conversation a bit difficult though funny enough being right beside my companion (at the bar) did make that easier.

Second time at Little Anthony's. Food is fabulous, service outstanding. Will definitely go back. If I have one negative, we went in December both times and both times we found the restaurant to be a little cold. Turn the heat up and the experience is perfect!

This restaurant was disappointing especially after reading the reviews on Open Table. There was confusion about our reservation, food was not served hot and I would describe as the quality as fair and the service was not attentive. Given the price of the meal I wished I had gone elsewhere with so many great places to eat in Toronto.

My friend and I came to Little Anthony’s for dinner before heading to the Christmas market. We were served by Hugo who was an amazing server! The food was fantastic but he made our dining experience that much better!

Welcoming guys at the entrance were very cheerful and great. Table servers need to work in being a bit nicer and show a smile here and there.
Food was great and delicious.
Noise level was fine just right.

Going to this nice restaurant and sitting in a quiet area was a great start which was quickly changed. A senior couple obviously with their grandchildren were seated right beside us. These two five-year-old kids were yelling and screaming ( having fun like all kids do) at this nice restaurant is not my idea of having a nice quiet supper with my wife. This was very disappointing. We left immediately after the the supper with no coffee of dessert.

Of course, the Food and service was amazing as always.

I made a reservation on Open Table which was super easy.

I came in and was greeted promptly and seated at my table. The dining room is medium sized, so probably good to make a reservation - especially for a weekday lunch.

Our server was incredibly friendly and made us smile.

I came here with a friend for a weekday lunch. We were surprised at how quick the meals came out.

My friend had a caesar salad. It was a good size, with fresh bacon and parmasean. She said it was average tasting though.

I had the veal marsala. It was delicious, with several pieces of veal and lots of mushrooms. It was light on the carbs (i.e. there were none), but there was fresh homemade bread provided.

Very pleased. Service was excellent, as was the food. Seating was comfortable, and the noise level was low so we were able to enjoy good conversation without having to shout as most restaurants seem to be like these days. I would rank the Caesar salad here as one of my favorite Caesar salads — it was dressed perfectly. My Osso Buca was very nice as well.

The number of guests in our party kept changing as two couldn’t come at the last minute due to work obligations. So we were put at a table better suited to our numbers. Half way through the meal, one guest was able to get away from the office and showed up. The servers quickly and seamlessly added another spot at our table.

I will definitely return. It was a lovely evening. Great food. Great service.
