Brilliant experience. Had not been on this strip of Avenue Road at Dupont and had not been here before. Feels very "local" - no tourists, well-heeled, cool and energetic atmosphere. Food is very well prepared, authentic and served perfectly. Attentive staff and bottomless wine list. Gets quite loud but its everyone enjoying themselves. 5/5.

We went to this restaurant last night celebrating a special occasion with my friend, girls night. The ambiance is nice and cozy and the service actually started nice. The food is good, both of us thought it is a good restaurant to try but we won't go back, as there are many more interesting restaurants to try in Toronto. Our reservation was for 6:30 PM. My friend arrived a little before 7:00 PM as there was an accident on the road. I believe around 9 PM we finished our meal and the waiter brought us the bill without offering us dessert which we thought it was a mistake on his part. We asked to see the dessert menu and he said he needs to speak to his manager. He came back and said he could only offer us 2 choices and it needs to be quick. We said we still would like to see the full dessert menu. He went back and brought the manager. The manager told us that they need our table as they book for only 2 hour block but basically as he saw we were upset told us we can order dessert from the full menu if we want. We always make sure that we don't reserve at restaurants which only offer 2 hour block. Most restaurants specify it on their reservation page . He mentioned he is doing a business here and we can't occupy the table for too long!! until that moment we were having a nice time, however that whole experience left an awful bad taste in our mouth. We decided not to order dessert! We were done with that place at that moment and really it is a shame that our night ended like this. As we paid the bill the waiter brought each of us an order of cannoli in take out bags! And said this is on us but we can't force you to take them!! On the way out the manager said; I hope you like our cannoli we are well known for it! We took our bags and gave them to the homeless person on the street. This is the first review I have left on line for a restaurant as I was very disappointed on how the restaurant scene in Toronto is changing.

L'Unita is definitely the best Italian in the neighborhood. We ordered the burrata & proscuitto pizza. Both of them were extraordinary tasty. They have an amazing italian wine selection a reasonable prices for the quality. The Barbera d'Asti wine was delicious. As I woman, I appreciate when the waiter let my boyfriend and me try (some restaurants assume that I do not like to try the wine). In this case, the waiter served both of us.
The ambiance is cozy with warm yellow illumination imitating a wine cave.
Definitely, I will repeat the experience.

It was my first time at L'Unita Enoteca - went to celebrate my birthday. Cosy feel upon entering, low lighting and warm. Food was good - enjoyed the pizza and mussels. Unfortunately there was only one special - not enough in my opinion. Although the food was good, the service was poor. The waitress was not very attentive or helpful. Not sure if I will go back.

New menu for the fall and it was tough to choose among several appealing options. We've been here 3 or 4 times in that many months and have had a great meal each time. The specials are always good, though we sometimes go back to the menu for our favorites. Great wine list and knowledgeable servers. Will look forward to returning.

Consistently excellent - one of my favourites as the service is always great and everyone recognizes how much attention is wanted or not wanted. Food is fabulous. Wine recommendations are always offered and always good suggestions. Regardless of the occasion - always an outstanding visit. Thanks to all of the staff who always take good care of me.

We were a group of 7 dining on Sat night. One in our group had dietary restrictions. The restaurant graciously accommodated her special needs. Brittany was our main server and she was delightful. We were staying at a nearby hotel and chose this restaurant because of its proximity. We were all delighted with the meal selections. Everything was delicious and the presentation was good. Would definitely return to this restaurant on a future visit to Toronto.

This place is a real gem. We were a group of seven, and had a fantastic evening of great food and wine—everything was consistently excellent. But the service was perhaps the most extraordinary. Our young waiter was incredible—efficient, attentive, and unobtrusive, yet also distinctly intelligent, funny, and engaging . The restaurant is charming in every way—really a delightful place to spend a celebratory evening with friends.
