I would have rated it higher if it wasn't for the cold air constantly coming into the restaurant from the front door. I would recommend putting a second door in to stop the wind from whipping in. Food was great and the restaurant is very unique. Love the decor. Unfortunately, it is a loud place. I think it may be because of all the wood and brick that doesn't allow the noise to be dampened.

My lobster ravioli was very tasty 😋 but it could be a tad bit less salty. But overall would recommend this dish. Clam chowder was really good and would highly recommend if you love chowder soup. Calamari as an appetizer was perfectly grilled, very tender. Mussels were great as well. To close off the meal, tiramisu was heaveny!!!

The food was delicious and the atmosphere was really great. We were seated almost an hour after our scheduled reservation. We were brought a piece of bruschetta each to make up for the wait. Although I thought it was good it wasn't necessarily worth an hour long wait especially when 3/5 guests were pregnant.

we enjoyed our meal and the ambiance at this restaurant , we were a party of three and all of us ordered decaffeinated cappuccino after our meal, i stated how it was so good and unsure that it was decaffeinated.... I'm now sure it wasn't because all three of us were awake for most of the night.... i find this disturbing and i promised myself i will never order any type of coffee after a dinner meal anywhere at all anymore

I have dine at Caffino's several times, as well as, taking clients for lunch. This time we were disappointed with our server, especially since it was an hour drive into Toronto. He wasn't particularly interested in us. It won't stop us from going back.

Great place for a business lunch, food was excellent, service great!
Restaurant needs better ventilation, too smoky in the dinning room and my clothes smelled after lunch.

Have wanted to try Caffino for many years and selected my husband's 50th Birthday to give it a try. I never expect a restaurant to do anything special because I indicate a celebration as the reason we are dining with them but this was very disappointing. Not even an acknowledgement or "thank you" for selecting their restaurant for this milestone. My husband found a worm in his salad and the plate was removed without expression of regret.

Came here for a long over due date night with my boy friend. I had booked this reservation ages ago in hopes for a nice evening with my significant other... This jewel of a place has a beautiful rustic, warm and authentic feeling to it. However, when we arrived we were promptly greeted but we weren't asked if we had a reservation, and just plopped down, which was a bit disappointing because it took away that I had been on their dining list for the past month (also, what if it was a special occasion and I requested a special seat or service). When we were seated the usual water and drink order came. Then we ordered the calamari for $18.00 and asked for a side of bread while we pondered our entree orders. Our calamari came and we were completely underwhelmed by the bits of squid on a bed of lettuce and so much so that we were hesitant on ordering more food. So, we tested one more dish and it was the luigia pizza. The pizza was lacklustre and bland... I did see some dishes go by that looked hearty and well prepared, but if you can't get pizza right or even a simple calamari dish, I'm not going to experiment any further.
Please keep in mind throughout our dining experience our server did not come to check on us once, did not ask us how our meal was during or after. Nor did he notify us of the specials on the menu or asked if we had any questions. Finally $65 later for two beers, one calamari and one pizza we paid by credit card and the server ripped out the bill and walked off. That was that.
I honestly have never felt like a restaurant has given me the one finger salute until now. If you like Italian food and want that low key rustic feel and not spend and arm N a leg. Go to Gio Rana's on Queen East. Dear Caffino, get better management ... really really disappointed

Caffino is a neighbourhood gem that is tucked away. Every once in a while we rediscover it and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and the restaurant has great ambiance. We will be back.

An excellent spot for a business lunch. The staff was attentive but not disruptive, the food was absolutely fantastic and the ambience and noise level was perfect for a semi-formal lunch meeting. Very pleased.

Always thought this was such a gem. However was deeply disappointed upon my visit last night ..... We made a reservation for 9:15pm, showed up at 9:15pm and were promptly told that the kitchen was closed!!!
What organization accepts a reservation when they aren't even able to serve a customer?
Definitely was not pleased to have my time wasted!

We were six people and had six different meals. Each of us mentioned that the food was extremely salty.
Service was alright until the end. When we asked if we could get separate bills, the response was unfriendly and not very professional.
