About

In a casual setting with authentic Italian décor, the Alioli Ristorante serves up contemporary takes on classic Italian dishes. Fresh baked foccacia breads fill the restaurant with an irresistible aroma while homemade soups, salads, rich desserts and an array of entrees await. The chefs at Alioli Ristorante emphasize the use of fresh and seasonal ingredients, and diners can anticipate an ever-changing menu according to the time of year.

Serving lunch and dinner, the Alioli Ristorante also has a remarkably comprehensive wine list that allows guests to perfectly pair vintages with each dish, and the sinfully rich dessert menu can stand on its own and also serve as a reason for a visit.

Great food, lovely decor, attentive service. We enjoyed the live music - wonderful. However, the restaurant itself was very loud - not sure if the acoustic engineers did a very good job with the renovation, it was just too loud when full of people.

No doubt, we will visit it again.

Really enjoyed our recent dinner there. My special chicken ravioli was superb and my husband's beef tips pasta equally good. He loved the kale salad! Atmosphere nice with some live entertainment, although a bit noisy on a busy Friday might. Will definitely go again when in the Square One area. Service would have been better if drink order taken right away while we browsed the menu and they hadn't forgotten my husband's espresso.

Had another awesome Alioli evening! The place has good ambiance awesome food and great staff. The waiters are fun and well versed in wines and the food. A change in or even an off menu order is usually not a problem and taken in stride. Only thing keeping me from eating here more often is my budget.

Wine by the glass, not so much... for real selection you need to come to Alioli with a group to take advantage of the extensive wine list (unless you plan on taking down a bottle yourself).
As for the food, there is no lasagne or brushetta here; only a great selection of true Italian dishes - no matter what you pick, you cant go wrong.
Ambience is great but the noise level is a bit much for romantic dinners. Come here for a group celebration, business dinner, or for a good time out with friends.

My wife and I were there to celebrate a special occasion and had never been to Alioli Ristorante even though it was in our neighbourhood. It was perfect! The service was very professional, but friendly. The atmosphere was very comfortable and relaxed.
We shared the tomato and mozzarella appetizer, which was excellent. My wife had the seafood pasta and I the veal scaloppini - both were very good. The wine selection was quite extensive. While the food, the service and the atmosphere was great, we both thought the entertainment was the highlight! A very good lady jazz vocalist - good music!
Overall the food, service, ambience, décor and entertainment made very a very memorable celebration.

The food was very good. I had the prochutto with buffalo mozzarella followed by their daily special of squid-ink seafood fettuccini, which as delicious. I was too full for desert. The only thing that wasn 100% was the service. It was great until the coffee, but then we "lost" our waiter. About 10 minutes after we were done our coffees, we finally called out to him to bring our boo.

Aside from that, everything was great.

As usual, the food and service was excellent. The service was polite, friendly, and prompt. The food was perfection, as usual. The only complaint from some of my fellow diners was the noise level. While the music was fun to sing along with and helped to create the ambiance of a fine Italian eatery, it was difficult at times to have a conversation with people at my table without repeating or yelling at each other. We all had a wonderful time, despite that, though.

The service was very sporadic in the amount of people who serviced us (3)?
We did not understand why 3 different people served our table as it was very difficult to build a rapore with one waiter.
I would think this would be very helpful in understanding the guest who is dining and any nuiances regarding their meal.
The last and final (3rd) waiter we had was very poor in disposition and seemed to look outside of the client's view when receiving a response to a question asked.
Overall the experience was pleasant but the service did not compliment the food and in the business of food service both should compliment each other.
Thank-you in providing an opportunity for feedback.

We were referred your restaurant by a friend, and although at first it was hard to find, perhaps when you send people confirmation on their reservation it should say you are at the back of the 350 burnhamthorpe building, we drove past because we thought we had wrong address as when we found 350 burnhamthorpe we thought we must have past it, but once we found it we were pleasantly surprised, the decor and ambience is warm and welcoming,, the service was very good, the food was superb, the main meals were exquisite ,everyone at the table loved the food,,, we had the chocolate bomb for dessert and although it was very good ,we thought the portion was small, and the ice cream on the side was just a tiny scoop,again a little on the small size,,,

We had a party of 6 and were seated next to a larger party that really increased the noise level. The food was OK but my wife complained that the soup was bland and the salad was not great. My dish was good but not very hot. Service was great.

I've been eating here for about 20 years and I have never had a bad meal. The food is always fresh and very tasty. The waiters have been there forever and add to the atmosphere with their colourful service. The owner Massimo is always friendly and welcoming. A bit on the pricey side, but it is worth it.

Very quaint ambiance and beautiful dining music. Because it's not a large dining area, conversation can be challenging due to conversation from fellow diners and the live music. It's a great date-night spot and birthday-dinner spot. It felt like we were dining in an ecclectic spot in Europe. Loved it!
