The restaurant was very quiet at 5:30 when we arrived but it filled in quickly and provided a nice ambiance. There are a lot of servers. One server offered us to sample 2 different house wine (by the glass) before we chose the one we wanted. The menu had a nice variety. The food was excellent from the Arancini to the pasta to the meet. The canolis are excellent. True Italian coffee. We loved the place and it was worth the 25 minute walk to the theatre after our meal!
I’ve been back 3 times already. Great for authentic Sicilian cuisine. The food is made with passion and creativity. The staff is great and the atmosphere is cozy.
Awesome service (thanks Jen see we remembered) and fantastic food. The njuda pizza was excellent.
Gnocchi is the best in Toronto. Everything on the menu is above-average. They care about every small detail and the service was excellent. The bartender was a wizard with the cocktails.
My first time at Ardo and I was very satisfied with the superb service by our waitress (forgot her name). She was so attentive and friendly, really made us feel comfortable. Love the the intimate space. The food was really delicious. One of my top spots of Italian in the city. My favorite dishes included their special of the day flatbread with anchovies, octopus (so tender), gnocchi (mini fluffy soft pillows) and the spicy in house made sausage with their orchiette pasta. I would go back again and again to try more dishes.
Okay experience. Better sitting at the chefs table.
Chef was unaccommodating to customers’ request to modify food prep to avoid allergic-reaction.
Food was excellent. Service professional chef /owner friendly, passionate, professional and a top chef. Wonderful authentic Italian food
Great place to share a meal with friends, a date, or family. Really delicious and unique cocktails, and the pizza was wonderful. Great service and overall a great experience.
Exceptionally warm ambiance, great selection on the menu, and delicious Sicilian flavours. Orecchiette with spicy sausage was the star of our meal... despite there being very little of the sausage itself, the spicy provolone, sauce, and perfectly prepared pasta was enough to have me dreaming of coming back. Just one word to the wise: try to sit towards the back of the restaurant during the winter. There’s a steady draft from the door and huge window up front. Would come again!
Cozy place with amazing food and service :)
Amazing food service and drinks! Great spot for dinner with friends and family
Loved it! One of the best gems in the city, food was excellent
Brilliant as always. Owner and staff are part of something authentic which is rare in this day and age.
Fine regional cooking. Cannolis are second to none here or in Italy .
My birthday choice for years to come.
The service was EXCELLENT! Food was amazing. Will definitely be going back.
My daughter and I went for dinner. We were early for our reservation but they were about to accommodate us. We shared an appetizer and my daughter ordered the pasta with duck ragu and I had the cod special. Everything was excellent!
My friends and I had a wonderful time and the food is exceptionally good. Highly recommend Ardo and we continue to come back.
This is a lovely gem on King E. Everything from the olive oil to the wine is authentically Sicilian and it was probably the best gnocchi I've had outside of Italy. Light with a perfect porcini sauce. The burrata was also very fresh and the desserts were interesting and worth a try, so save some space. The staff was very friendly without being pushy. Overall a lovely place for special occasions or a nice evening (for small groups or couples as it's quite small).
Fantastic! Food is brilliant. Service very dedicated and fun. A wonderful experience.
Great food and service but noise level made it impossible to talk.
I just love this restaurant! The staff is really cool and Roberto is the best. The food is out of this world and the wine is... oufffff! Go
great, upbeat pot with very good italian dishes. Pricey for lunch. Should offer a side salad option.
Always a delicious meal and excellent, knowledgeable service.
We had a brilliant meal at Ardo's from start (cocktails) to finish (cannoli). This is a restaurant for foodies without the pretence or fuss
Food and service was outstanding. Every dish was good, the gnocchi was outstanding. Value is unmatched.
Decent food. Few things that prevented it from being a 5 star dinner - the front door didn't close properly at times and we got a cold draft often, the server did not seem to know the menu very well, and the bread did not come with the balsamic vinegar as advertised (we were not told this before we ordered) and we had to specifically ask for vinegar to replace it.
Wonderful food, wine, drinks and staff. It was a special treat to eat at the chef's table and to watch the food being prepared. The Sicilian wines are first class and after dinner drinks are an exciting adventure. They had orangecello for the holiday season! Jessica's description of the food and wines were concise yet descriptive and mouth watering. Everything was as she described and maybe even better. The cannoli's are traditional with a twist, and my favorite. I never speak or participate in the conversation when eating a cannoli. There can be no distractions as I completely enjoy them.
We have eaten many tines at Ardo.
We have never been disappointed.
The staff, the food, the ambiance: all wonderful.
The big treat this time were the home made sausages: a recipe from Roberto’s Grandfather.
Until next time!
A great combination of Sicilian food and wine, served by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. A noteworthy addition to the Toronto culinary scene.
We took a table along side the kitchen counter rather than at the front by the door where it was cold. There is too much traffic of the servers back and forth through the narrow aisle made narrower by the patrons at the counter with coats hanging off their chairs. The cavolo salad lacked character, however the pastas were good but could have been better if served on a warmed plate. We must caution you that the restaurant does not honour Open Table cheques for payment.
Ardo is a classic family-run restaurant owned by the head chef with very good (Sicilian) food. If you like a restaurant with good food, character and good ambience for a reasonable price, then this is the place for you. Jonathan Beach
Food was tasty BUT not enough meat choices on the menu. When I made reservations, I mentioned (because it was asked) that we were celebrating a special occasion. It wasn't even acknowledged during our visit. Not even a drink or a free dessert was offered to celebrate the occasion!! :((
Food was exceptional
Excellent food although very busy for an 8:30 reservation - great selection of good wines
Delicious food, friendly staff, great wine selection. Great place for people who want to try a different style of Italian cooking from Sicily.
Excellent food focussed on Sicilian flavours and specialties. Service was a bit rushed and didn't always match up wine with the food arriving at the table. All-in-all a very good restaurant in a fun atmosphere.
Now a regular to attend this spot! Starts with the owner (Roberto) and his staff that provide outstanding service and the menu is excellent. Nice selection of Sicilian wines to compliment a great meal. Brought friends for their first visit and they loved it! Looks like we will be back again soon.
Great food and service. Wonderful gnocchi dish, highly recommend. Roberto is very talented.
The best truly Italian restaurant we’ve come across in the area. Simply perfect!! Great service and great drinks as well. We also purchased their homemade bread and a bottle of Sicilian Olive oil which is a winner with our kids at home.
Great staff, great food, great ambiance! Highly recommend and will return soon!!
