Ascari on King, the second outpost of Ascari Enoteca in Leslieville, draws on its connection to Toronto’s Fashion District in the heart of King West, Ascari sets a new benchmark for true handmade pasta.

Our honest approach to food is rooted in simplicity executed incredibly well. The best seasonal ingredients and the right techniques is what creates the perfect meal. From Ascari Enoteca classics like the Carbonara to more elevated dishes like the Bistecca Alla Fiorentina.

Our wine list travels through old and new parts of the world finding unique styles and often off the beaten path varietals. Our lists have character, stories and always something new to try even if it's a recognizable region. It is not designed to exclude, rather, to bring the guest on this journey with us.

We connect with our guests not only through our knowledge of food and beverage but through our genuine passion for providing friendly, relaxed and true hospitality.

    We enjoyed the T-Bone Steak but found it really expensive. MP is not a fair way to price your items on a menu. Also found that there were not enough options for salads.

    The restaurant was great, food was good, server was not bad, but we constantly had to ask for refills and the refills were very small compared to the table next to us that got full glasses and constant refills. We brought a cake, didn't receive any plates and gave us two forks for 3 people. Thankfully we sat right next to a service station so we could help ourselves for extra plates, forks and napkins and didn't have to wait for the server to eventually come back.

    A unique menu. We tried different dishes and appetizers and everything was excellent! There’s enough variety but dishes are of high quality as reflected in the fantastic flavours! We had Squid pasta, Alla Carbonara Agnolotti, Duck, and even a child’s basic pasta. Everything was delicious and served in a timely manner! Desserts were exquisite! This was a special family occasion and staff delivered with extra attention! Thank you for a lovely evening! Our compliments to the chef as well! We will certainly be back!

    We didn’t know who was our server and service was extremely slow. Multiple people had touched our table, but I will acknowledge one gentleman who took the time to change a dish for us that we did not like. His awareness of the situation was the best part of our experience, it’s too bad he wasn’t our server for the entire service, our experience probably would have been better. Both our pastas were not cooked enough and the edges were hard. The “tiramisu” unfortunately was not authentic at all. Will not return for food, maybe casual drinks with no expectations.

    Last night my fiancé and I went to Ascari to celebrate my recent promotion. We made a reservation to get the chef’s tasting menu and let me tell you- it did not disappoint! From as simple as the baked bread to the delectable pastas and the summer light dessert and everything in between. Also the service was impeccable, we felt well taken care of while being immersed in the experience I highly recommend you visit Ascari, get a bottle of wine and enjoy the culinary experience that awaits you! I know I will be dining there again - thank you Ascari King Street

    Had a fantastic work team dinner here- something for everyone and the service was impeccable. We had a round table in a sort of circular space in the window that felt like something truly special and almost private for our group of six. Light appetizers and fantastic chewy al-dente pastas. I appreciated the multiple Negroni options and the wine list was a great selection of Italian and Canadian wines- only minor comment is that they could have more of them available by the glass. All in all a great dining experience!

    Absolutely fabulous meal with fantastic service! This is my second time at Ascari having tried both of their locations. We had three different pastas and two appetizers and everything was absolutely spot on. Only the dessert was somewhat of a miss but it was still good just not the top quality of the other items.

    We did the Bubbles, Beats and Bombolone prix fixe, thought it was a great deal with the unlimited prosecco. The food was good, but the service was even better. All staff were very pleasant and attentive, they came by to fill up our glass or just make sure we had what we needed multiple times. Also, the patio is nice and airy, with pretty turquoise umbrellas to keep it nice and shaded on super hot days.

    Food and service was perfect! Our waiter was super helpful on helping us decide on appetizer and entrees. We loved every bite. Sort of wish we had ordered the focaccia. Table next to us got some and it looked (& smelled) fantastic. Zucchini fritters, agnolotti, and carbonara we're all simply AMAZING. Music made us giggle throughout... Thumping bass and nothing else. Like having dinner right next to a 80's bathhouse. (Amusing, not awful)

    We always have a great experience at Ascari. Our recent visit was for the Tasting Menu on their patio. We had a wonderful experience. Food was delicious, cocktails were well crafted. Service was great, we were really well taken care of - we never had to ask for anything or refills of anything. The server was always anticipating our needs and we appreciated it. Thank you Ascari team, we shall be back soon!
