Claire was an excellent server. The food was amazing. The steak wasn’t worth $72. Good steak but not worth the money. Everything else was completely worth it and delicious.

Numerous restaurants in yorkville, where we live, but this is our “local”. Owners and staff treat you like friends and the food is always great. Best Italian in the city and compares well with our visits to Italy. We visit a couple of times a month. Never lets us down.

Short staffed, noise level impossible. Food - 2 out of 10 in general. We 4 agreed, an under 30, undiscerning crowd, drinking spot. Sadly, location meant nothing either.

Quite disappointed that the restaurant only had a few options for my husband who is gluten free. No gluten free pasta-whereas most Italian restaurants now have that option for their customers. Striploin was $72. My husband asked the Manager if there was anything else that they could make for him-answer was No! firm didn't even try. Put a damper on our Anniversary celebration. The Manager actually said that they have been trying for a couple of years to figure that out. Really? How hard is it to have gluten free pasta nowadays. REALLY DISAPPOINTED!

The first time I was at L'Unita was a New Year's Eve a few years ago, as party of a foursome one of who was celebrating a birthday. We came here because the daughter of the birthday girl worked the bar until she moved on to sister resto Giullietta. I loved it but thought maybe we were getting special treatment. So I went back, again and again and again. Great service, wonderful menu, lovely people. Usually Claire has been our server but this time it was Angela. Both are excellent. Also this time, I brought a friend who came straight from the airport. Marco carried her heavy suitcase and stored it for us. Just amazing. Thank you!!! Antonia

Great food, nice ambience. As the restaurant filled up, it got quite loud but still tolerable. Prices are not cheap, but food quality is very good and portions are actually fairly generous for downtown Toronto. We'll visit again for sure.

Tasty food friendly staff. Overall I’d go back. However, they could use more staff for serving or help with clean up. Had dirty dishes at the table for long periods of time both with appetizer and main course and need to keep asking to have wine refilled. Those type of things shouldn’t happen at this caliber of restaurant.

I was very disappointed with my experience. This was a special occasion. When I arrived the noise level was exceedingly high. We were taken to the side of the restaurant out of the main room into a hallway that led to the kitchen with three small tables against the wall as if they were put there for extra space. That was unacceptable. We had the weight stuff going back and forth during a complete dinner. We were out of the main room and was extremely disappointing. The staff were quite pleasant however it took a long time to take our order. Although the food was of good quality it was extremely expensive for the portions that were served. The portions were extremely small as the pasta dishes for comparable to an appetizer. For spending $200 on a dinner for two I would have expected much more! I most likely will not be returning and would not recommend this restaurant.

A very nice spot, with good food, excellent waitress....however very pricey for what we got. I would go somewhere that warrents such high pricing. Its nothing special. Its good and ordinary. I can not see any of us ever going back. Moderate to good. Not worth the price you pay!

My boyfriend and I went to L'Unità for our first time last weekend and we will easily be returning. The food is so delicious (try the cacio e pepe fritters!!!!), the drinks were great, and the dessert was amazing. Our bartender (whose name I unfortunately do not know) was very attentive, educated on the menu, accommodating, and provided a great dining experience. Also, it was great to see my dear friend Angie working that night, she is a great person and an excellent server. L'Unità serves truly great Italian food - I will be back!

My girlfriend and I just needed a night out!
We had looked all over for a place near our hotel (Hotel 89), and we both decided this was the place for us.
From the moment we walked through the door, we were treated as if they had known us forever. We had a bit of trouble tackling the wine list, but with a bit of help our server made that decision easy as well.
The food was remarkable, the wine was perfect for us, and the butterscotch dessert was truly incredible.
I sincerely want to thank you and your staff for making this date night truly memorable!!

My husband and I had dinner recently at L'Unità Enoteca and were very pleased with both the food and the service. Our server, Angela, was most attentive, answered all of our questions and even took the time to speak to the chef about a recipe for me. My husband ordered the calamari as an appetizer and declared it to be among the best he has had (and he orders calamari everywhere we go!) I had the Caesar salad and really enjoyed it. The restaurant dresses salads lightly, which is definitely to my taste. We both had the Cavatelli Pugliese (delicious) and shared the gelato (hazelnut is best- although we tried all three :) ) Both of us had wine as well. I ordered the Sauvignon Blanc which was new to me, but I enjoyed it. My husband had the Montepulciano. Our reservation was for 7:30pm on a Saturday night which turned out to be a pretty good time. The early diners were just leaving so the noise level was manageable for most of our dinner. What I mean by that is that we could still have a conversation without yelling at one another. By the time we were almost finished however, the restaurant was, yet again, completely full. At this point, the noise level rose and conversation became more difficult. However, we were finished by this point (9:15) so we paid the bill and left. We would go back again for sure.

The staff here are above reproach, attentive, very good and know how to cater to their guests. The restaurant is quaint and small, but doesn't feel restrictive. The food was good, well made and tasted very good, although one of the dishes was a little too seasoned for my taste, but overall I would recommend. The wine list is extensive and well suited for the fare served here. I would definitely revisit this establishment.
