Fresh seasonal ingredients are on the Italian menu in this multi-award winning restaurant. Chef Silvio Mirenzi delights diners with his mastery of our classics and tempts taste buds further with his fresh contemporary take on traditional Italian dishes in the just-updated and modernized elegant dining room that flickers with candles set around the room. An extensive wine list, including wine from some of the world's finest vineyards, and an attentive, knowledgeable staff add to the appeal. Perhaps you prefer a more intimate, private setting. Mistura's private dining room holds 14 people, while the semi-private dining room holds up to 40, to cater to your more private functions.

Mistura is a restaurant we inevitably turn to for special events -- such as the double birthday our party just celebrated. The chef has changed -- but the quality remains high. The artichoke appetizer is to die for. My fresh Dorata was a generous portion. And the zabaione was an exquisite creamy foam. Above all, the service was impeccable -- friendly and attentive but not intrusive, generous and thoughtful but not sycophantic. And we were able to get so much talking done! A great evening.

While the chicken and branzino were good, the veal scallopini was absolutely awful. Weirdly slimy, overly salted, and clearly given no time or care. The rapini, even by rapini standards, was horribly bitter.

The service was equally off-putting. While friendly, she was all but non-existent, focused more on catering to a private party than serving our table. Thirty minutes to get water, and despite staying we were ready to order, she decided to take off for another 20 minutes before taking our wine order, and another 20 minutes before taking our food order. In total, it took well over an hour to receive our appetizers, with no apology, and no offer to check on our food.

While the veal could be chalked up to a poor order, considering the quality of the other dishes, the service, loud ambience, and lack of consistency makes this restaurant overpriced by far. Mistura is clearly a restaurant that used to be good, but has depended on its clout for far too long.

It was my birthday and boy was it a good dinner at Mistura.
Every course was fantastic as was the service.
We ordered off the summerlicious menu and regular menu... there were too many yummy options not to!

It was an especially tasty dinner. Our plates were so empty the wait staff remarked on it. Service was very informative friendly and respectful
We thought the parking might be a problem but no worries.
It’s a very comfortable restaurant with just the right amount of ambiance. All in all a definite 5 out of 5!

The atmosphere, location, a service was all great.
However, I couldn't get past the feeling of expecting more from the food.
I have been to many upscale Italian restaurants and wouldn't put Mistura near the top of the list in terms of food, which was disappointing.

My husband and I ate here while visiting Toronto and had a wonderful evening. The food was delicious, and the staff very helpful. The restaurant interior is very pleasant, and we had a high-backed booth which provided privacy and quiet. Both traditional Italian and more eclectic dishes were well-prepared and very tasty.

This is my third time at Mistura. The first time was many, many years ago and the food was amazing . The second time I was there, the food was very salty and I mentioned it to the waitress. I thought we'd try it again on Saturday and the food was just ok -- my fish was very plain, a bit bland. Not sure if it's because Massimo is no longer the chef there. Something has changed since the first time I ate there. I don't find the food as good as it once was.

Manager very good !! Arranged a very “valuable booth” for us even though we hadn’t reserved one ( who knew?) waitress friendly. (Almost too much). Caesar sLad most disappointing. Waited over half an hour for it. A bowl of lettuce. Abit of dressing. Little cheese.I would have returned it but was starving. Main dish (pasta) delicious. Really. Desserts also wonderful. Altogether not the best mistura experience this time. Return? Not for awhile.
