A very pleasurable dining experience. Service was very good. Knowledge of wines...and we tried a new wine which was superb. Predatore Zinfandel. I had not been to this restaurant for some years and will be returning.

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.

My girlfriend and I were thoroughly impressed by the food and service, our waiter Stan did an amazing job serving us for the entire night. We arrived half an hour early for our reservation and we were still seated right away. Great atmosphere, great staff and great food! We'll be back soon for sure.

It’s been about a decade since I last visited (just because there’s so many new restaurants around tempting me to try). I was definitely treated well. It was as good, if not better, than it was when I was last there.

I would say, try everything on the menu (you may need multiple returns), as it is well worth it.

Our group of 5 friends had a lovely dinner at Mistura. The setting was very pleasing, and the service was excellent. The owner dropped by our table to chat with us and his enthusiasm was great. We were there for Winterlicious, and the meal was delicious, and the portions generous, especially for a Winterlicious menu. The main course of Brasato al Barolo, a slow-braised flat iron, was absolutely superb. I will recommend Mistura to my friends and family.

Great food and great service. We dined with friends for Winterlicious.

The menu was great.

The breaded artichokes were fantastic. The Ox tail spaghetti was extremely flavorful.

The Creme Brûlée was very good.

I’d definitely recommend Mistura.

Our server was very attentive but in a good way. The atmosphere was quiet and dimly lit but not overly dark-candles added a romantic touch. There was some quiet music playing in the background which made it easy to talk. This place was perfect for mine and my boyfriend’s anniversary. I would definitely recommend for a special occasion if you like a more quiet and slower paced atmosphere. It was not a bustling, loud and trendy place but I was glad it wasn’t for this particular occasion. Overall my experience at Mistura was pleasant and I would go back.

Never disappointed here. Possibly the best restaurant in Toronto. A long record of great service. Classy waiters. Perfect ambience. Great menu. Delicious food. Always has been a fav. Good new places in Toronto but this one is steadily excellent.

My husband and I went to Mistura for New Year's Eve dinner and drinks and received some of the best service ever. We are both chefs and often lament how horrible most service is in our industry--lots of hipsters who don't even bother to ask if you'd like another drink and don't seem to know much about the menu. Well, that's not the case at Mistura. Our server was very knowledgable and took care of us very well. The food was outstanding as well! We left feeling very happy with our experience and I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants some delicious Italian food along with exceptional service!

We liked the appetizer courses, but weren’t crazy about our mains (rack of lamb and veal scallopini). The service was fairly good, with the exception of a couple odd moments where our server was interrupted in the middle of reading us the specials by another staff member and proceeded to have a quick conversation. Also, we wanted a different type of martini glass and she replied with “I don’t like our other glasses.” When we were persistent she simply brought the glass to the table and didn’t bother to transfer the drink or have the bartender do it. Not any major complaints, but when you spend over $500 on dinner for two, you expect more polished service.

Service was very disjointed and unorganized.
Very expensive pasta was served on cold plates
Meat served was marginal
Parts of the meal/service were never served.
Not recommending and certainly not going back
It's too bad as we have been going to this restaurant for over 4 years now

The food was superb, however our waitress was "new to fine dining" as she told us, and wasn't very professional. She actually argued with us about how risotto is made and didn't seem to know anything about the wine list, telling us that Chardonnay only comes from California! The other serving staff were very competent.

We ate at Mistura about 1-1/2 years ago and everything was excellent. That is why I chose
Mistura to impress a business colleague of mine. What a disappointment!
Service was ok, but the food was not up to the standard of a year and a half ago.
It was no better than an ordinary restaurant. The Scotch I had before dinner was pitifully
small, not even one-finger. Shame for the price of it.
My wife and I will not be returning.
