We went for Summerlicious. The menu, the service were perfect. Portion sizes were not reduced and the appetizers and entrees were delicious. Too full to eat the deserts!

The owner, server and the food were amazing. Upsetting to know that they’re closing down, but I hope they’ll reopen in the future.

The food was incredible but what made the experience even more over the top was our server Tamara, she is amazing and full of passion for what she does and the food she serves. Then there is Paolo his passion is over the top and having him drop by your table is an education in his food and food in general. We wanted to invite Tamara and Paolo to sit and join us at our table. Don't hesitate go to Mistura

Food (and portions) were exceptional for a Summerlicious menu. Our only disappointment was that Mistura was to be closed for a summer break in August; otherwise they would be our choice for an anniversary dinner.

Incredible Summerlicious evening. From Paolo the owner personally taking the time to chat, to Tamara our server, amazing experience. The Lasagna, the Veal and Salmon, just wow. Thank you for the booth, fun times!

We arrived a little late for our reservation in our casual clothes from a fun day out and we were greeted so nicely as if we just arrived at our friend's house, so the night is off to a good start. It only gets better. We had the Summerlicious menu. I'd never heard of a calamari steak so decided to try it and I'm glad I did. The calamari itself had such a delicate flavour you know it was fresh and the toppings on the 'steak' enhanced it perfectly. Veal marsala was great, lasagna was great, the gnocchi was amazing. Our server, Tamara was very good. We'll be back before Summerlicious is over.

The evening was lovely. Appetizers and main courses were very good. I found the tiramisu disappointing this time - far too heavy. Everything else was great.

Slim picking on the drinks menu. The calamari app was hidden underneath everything else ... if you’re going to have an app called calamari steak, the calamari should be the focal point... missed the mark!

The salmon main was good and dessert was basically whip cream with little pieces of lemon on top.

Not worth worth the value... even for summerlicious

We were visiting Toronto for the weekend and we loved this restaurant. Our server, Amber, was exceedingly helpful in every way! Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and fun! The owner stopped by our table too and chatted! Very personable! And the food; the beet risotto and gnocchi were SO tasty and beautiful!

An excellent restaurant. From Monday to Thursday they feature a prix fixe for two for $99 that includes a glass of very good house wine. The tasting plate of appetizers that comes with this dinner is outstanding and the main course options a good selection of favourites from the regular menu . If I could change one thing, it would be to include a lighter dessert option...the tiramisu is very good, but a lot to finish with. Great service, food and ambiance.

Thank you very much for the review. We're glad you enjoyed your evening and the Prix-Fixe menu. You may have a point about the dessert. We'll consider your suggestion for the next Prix-Fixe! Hope to see you again.

I first visited Mistura (actually Sopra) for a private party I held, over 11 years ago. Since then I have held a few Christmas parities in Sopra and have had countless dinners with friends / family and colleagues at Mistura. The food is always great. The staff and very friendly and really add to the experience. Paolo (owner) is so passionate about the food and the experience you have at Mistura, he is such a great person to talk about and ask questions - he makes the restaurant a fantastic experience. Definitely going back soon.

Great experience. Went out for a date with my hubby and had a great evening of apps, pizza, pasta and wine. This place had a great vibe. It's hard to find a casual authentic Italian restaurant in the city nowadays. It's either too upscale/too pricy or way too casual with subpar food. Mistura was such a great medium. I found the atmosphere to be warm and inviting, the service was great with attentive staff. Food was GREAT and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back again soon.

Food was disappointing. My wife had lunch here previously and said that had been good. The chocolate mousse was good, as were the cocktail and wine, but appetizers and mains were substandard and definitely not worth the price. At least it was quiet so good for conversation.

We had not been to Mistura in a couple of years and to be honest, we found it very good but not great. Service was very attentive and prompt , in fact a little too fast, likely because there were only about 4/5 tables filled this Tuesday night.
Three of us had the same appetizer special, and the four scallops in each dish were very nicely done, but the parsnip purée they rested on had no discernible parsnip flavouring. Then again, it is a mild vegetable.
The pasta special got a thumbs up and the spaghetti Bolognese was alright. Unfortunately the seafood linguine had so much heavy basil Pesto and oil that it was not good . The restaurant promptly offered a substitute which we appreciated and they took it off the bill. Also appreciated.
Desserts were very good and all portions of any dish are generous. ( you can get a half order of the pastas if you wish)
Our waitress was charming.

We didn't enjoy Mistura as much this time around. The food was good but not exceptional. We had the duck and veal marsala and our friends the two fish dishes. The biscotti plate was nothing special either. The service was ok--prompt and friendly enough, but our server seemed inexperienced.

As usual we had a lively dinner here. Just two of us. We split the fried artichoke hearts and they were great. One had branzino which was good and the other had the pasta with shrimp which was delicious.

Loved it. This restaurant was the perfect choice for us on a Wednesday. It felt relaxed and comfortable and we needed a place to unwind after a stress filled day. The food was good, no complaints there, the menu isn't huge but there's enough to choose from and they have specials not on the menu. We ate, drank and were merry! Service was great too.

We ordered lamb lamb ($48$), artichoke ($18), I bones Orata fish ($36), tiramisu and creme brulee plus drinks. Food were all.good, the cream brulee we were charged for $8 for the toppings.
Customer service was worst. The server just kept on talking, flirting to my boyfriend and grabbed the menu from.my hands without asking my order. I told her I need the menu coz I have to order. She replied ”oh you are going to order?!? with her raised eyebrows then left.
When she came back it’s my boyfriend who ordered for me. We stayed because we don't want to totally ruin our date.

On the other hand, I have been in this place a couple of times and this is the worst experience I ever had not just in this restaurant, but my entire dining experience. She should be working there coz she is a liability.

But I love the restaurant and the food.
