So great to be back to this restaurant. Service was amazing and the food was (as usual) the best!
Thanks for the warm welcome back!
Amazing delicious food
Nicely done decor
Delicious food and excellent service! The entire menu looked delicious!
My parents dined here for their anniversary and said the food here rivals food that they’ve had in Italy, so you know it’s good!
Very friendly waiter, and the atmosphere is great! Plus the food was delicious
Always delicious with wonderful service.
As always I was treated well by great people great service and wonderful food
Very quiet at lunchtime except for the Snow Birds
Great spot- we will be back
I like the place and the environment. Good food , in the other hand drinks could be better. Talking about cocktails and latte
Vince our server was great!
Only the second time ever I have walked out a restaurant. Slow service, waiter with a "don't give a crap" attitude. We left after 40 mins of waiting for anyone to serve us. We took an expensive Uber ride to get there and it was a very disappointing experience. Would never give them my business again.
Always great food and great service.
For Covid it was over crowded and they service was slow because the kitchen couldn’t catch up.
Their patio courtyard was very lovely. We sat under a tree with a breeze coming through on one of the hotest days this week. The courtyard if lovely as other businesses have put out flowers and chairs for their staff making the place look lovely.
Food was great and so was our waitress. Definitely go back.
Food was excellent. Service was extremely slow, Never had dirty plates cleared from table. Water glass was not filled up again. Had to ask twice for wine, took at least 15 minutes. Waiter was rushed and I think they were understaffed. As it got busier it took longer to get service. The waiter did say it was hard to get helpers with Covid so will cut them some slack. Gave my husband his 2nd beer on the house as he forgot about his also and it came 15 minutes later.
Would recommend to a friend for the food but the service needs to improve.
Wonderful experience. Vincenzo our server was exceptional.
The food and ambience were 10 out if 10.
Found our new go to spot in T.O.
Lovely service and great food/beautiful venue
The food, service, and ambience were all wonderful. We loved our experience and we will be returning to try more on the menu!
thank you so much !
Had a wonderful lunch at Caffino. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. They have a nice outdoor setting for having either lunch or dinner. This restaurant is a great find as it is an oasis in the city. Give Caffino a try if you are looking for delicious food and great service in a tranquil setting.
thank you so much
Absolutely delicious meal. Great service. Tommy was amazing and knowledgeable and made our night out even more wonderful by being a part of it. We will absolutely be returning.
thank you so much!
What a gem. I almost don’t want to tell you about it.
Not very good service but the owner came by our table a few times and made things more manageable very good food with medium sized portions. The lamb was amazing but smaller than anticipated
The food was good. Our mussels were a bit fishy, the carpaccio has too much arugula on it but the bruschetta was delicious. The pasta and chicken parm was tasty as were the lamb chops. They were not cooked to medium rare though, they were medium well. The service was a little slow, and they were a bit confused (they brought us the wrong pasta and removed it after we ate half already). But they were kind in accommodating us to the patio instead of inside. Lastly the toilets were atrocious and both backed up during our visit.
Good service, great atmosphere and excellent food-the owner coming to chat was a nice touch…love it here!!
I was so happy to make a return to Caffino one of my all-time favorite Italian restaurants in the city. I had the lasagna this time mostly cause the description said like Nona makes and they were telling the truth!
The vibe and ambiance is incredible walking through the gets you feel like you are transported into a small Italian village local restaurant. The staff is always so warm and inviting. The service is great this place really is a gem!
Great to come back to our favourite restaurant in TO, Excellent authentic Italian, great food, great service.
We had a great time at Caffino, especially thanks to the incredible service. Our waiter, Tony, made exquisite recommendations which exceeded our expectations. Will definitely return.
While our waiter was very nice and attentive, the owner Rose was quite the opposite. When we asked why only half the staff was wearing masks, (legally required in Ontario indoors and if tables are not 2m apart outdoors) she responded that no-one else seemed to have a problem and that people wanted to feel free. We mentioned that we felt uncomfortable and she reluctantly told the waiter to wear a mask, continuing not to wear a mask herself while serving the customers. Her response was shaming and completely inappropriate. The restaurant itself was beautiful and the food was nice however I will not be going back and will let others know of my unfortunate experience there.
Nice authentic Italian.
Great tasting good portions
Good food but unfortunately inadequate service. We had reservation for 2 for a special occasion. We were placed at the open deck terrace area when it was raining hard and while other guests were sitting inside. When we asked to be placed inside, waiter was neither responsive nor helpful. We tried to figure out where to sit ourselves. Eventually we were placed at a table for two and was treated as if we were occupying someone elses table. During our 1,5 hours long stay, there were 3 empty tables in the same area which was controversial. Food and the ambience was good in general. I strongly think that we were unfortunate with the waiter who welcomed us first.
Great experience the food is always phenomenal. Waitress was friendly and calm and the atmosphere was perfect for my parents and I
I have been here over 50 times and this time was a complete disappointment. We booked an outdoor table which the confirmation clearly shows, but they said it's first come first served so we had to wait. The service was incredibly slow. We waited about 45mins to get our appetizers. We asked for bread with oil and balsamic. It didn't come come 45mins also. We finished our drinks and were not offered more. We had to flag the sever and ask. My dish had baby clams which were ALL empty shells and the owner tried to tell.me the class were in the dish. They were not. The lamb chops was a VERY small portion especially for the price.
I'm not sure what happened because this used to be a great spot. Also the noise level was so high I couldn't hear anything my date was saying. It's a real shame.
What a fun night. Vincenzo our server was amazing. We even met the owner Rosa who was amazing and visited every table.
The ambiance felt like we were in Italy
Beautiful hidden little gem for patio and indoor dining. I was disappointed in the Bruschetta. Two tiny pieces just a little bigger than a toonie for $6.00. The special I had the veal chop was tough, and tasteless. Definitely not the usually milks grain fed veal I usually get at other restaurants. Gnocchi and the Osso Bucco was delicious. I didn’t realize until the next day I got charged $72.00 for a bottle of wine which stated $60.00 on the menu. Lesson learn, always check my bill. Overall I would try it one more time but just for the pasta dishes. Owner and staff were very good and pleasant.
I had a lovely time at Caffino with my boyfriend! We ordered the Pappardele with Ragu and it tasted exactly like the sauce my mom used to make me. Her Calabrian heart would have loved the dish just as much as I did. Thank you for the nostalgia and the lovely service, we’ll be back for sure :)
Amazing service. Felt like family taking care of you. Made sure we had everything we needed.
Too expensive! Price for each pasta dish was $8 more in person than is shown on menu.
Upon entering and waiting to be seated, four staff members walked by us and didn’t bother to acknowledge us. I like to believe they were short staffed because throughout dinner, our water wasn’t refilled, when our entrees were ready they were flung onto to the table, and it took 15 minutes to bring us the dessert menu. Food was a 7.5/10. We were told they couldn’t split the bill for us 3 ways, when we saw them split the bill 5 ways for the table behind us.
Overall, I left wondering why other tables were being serviced and treated better than our own.
Why don’t I know about this beautiful Italian restaurant before?!! Very warm and cozy environment, service was over great! Food was very good with a for price
The best service and amazing food 😋😋
