Great wine list and warm and cozy - great food, yummy biscotti
Higher prices for simply ok food. Enjoyed the buzz of the restaurant althiugh very loud. Better restaurants in the area with great food at a lower price point. Glad we tryed it given how much people talk about it.
I live in the neighbourhood and have been to Quanto Basta a few times now. Each time has been great. The food never disappoints and the service is always friendly and attentive.
Loved the atmostphere, food and service. Restaurant is beautifully appointed for a boutique feel, yet comfortable enough to accommodate casual fine dining style. We thoroughly enjoyed the energy and buzz and still found it intimate enough for a some quality time to catch up.
We chose Quanto Basta to celebrate Easter. The Brunch menu offered a great variety of items. We chose the Nicoise Salad, which was topped with the fish of the day - swordfish. It was grilled to perfection and delicious. I look forward to another visit, when I will definitely try the French Toast of the day. Very attentive service and a wonderful Easter experience.
Thoroughly enjoyed the casual atmosphere with a level of sophsication. Made of a relaxed feeling, yet a good vibe of people surrounding you. We had the burrata appetizer which was extremely fresh laying in a bed of greens and cherry tomato. We all enjoyed some authentic Italian pastas as the main choice - I had the linguine bolagnese which I would recommend. And my friend had the orichette - another tasty dish. We also found a good selection of Italian Reds.
We had an amazing celebration at Quanto Basta--for our daughter's 21st birthday. We wanted a restaurant with great food/wine, service and variety on the menu--something for everyone. We weren't disappointed. The specials on the Valentines Day menu (ready for us a day early) offered an abundance of amazing options. We had veal, tenderloin, a lobster ravioli and a meaty pasta dish. The salads were all fantastic, and the four deserts we ordered (the first options on the menu) were outstanding. The server(s) were attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. I can' t think of a negative--wow! Just a fabulous spot--total of $340. before tip (include beers, wine, cocktails) is reasonable given the quality overall.
The menu consists of an assortment of inventive dishes in addition to traditional authentic items, all of which are delicious. The decor is comfortable & fun. The service friendly and comfortable. All and all a great casual neighborhood Restauant that never disappoints. Highly recommend giving it a try for Dinner, lunch or a weekend brunch!
Solid neighborhood Italian food. Try thr osso buco if they offer it.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to your restaurant. The service was fantastic and the food was spectacular. It was one of our favourite meals we have had lately. We will be back!
The food was very good and the service was excellent. A very nice restaurant for any occasion and especially nice to have in the neighbourhood. The menu was varied - something for everyone at our table. The pasta was especially delicious.
Will return for sure. Staff is wonderful! Nice wine list. Been there twice and enjoyed amazing meals.
This restaurant is one of my top 3 in Toronto, for not only great food, but outstanding service as well. This time I was little than impressed with the service - Terry Lynne was not there and I feel her absence made for an evening of disarray and frazzled attention to detail. Our server, noticeable brand new, couldn't keep up with the demands of the evening and the women who took some more initiatives behind him was less than pleasant at times, almost sarcastic. We will definitely go back, but this is definitely one of those things where when the cat is away.......
First time at this Rosedale / Summerhill stretch of Yonge St bistro. Very comfortable, yet energetic restaurant with an open kitchen, excellent food, and friendly, attentive service. Definitely worth a visit and a repeat engagement for us down the road.
We were seated at a table near the back door even though the most of the lovely booths were empty when we arrived and worse, several remained unoccupied the entire time.
