Caffino in Toronto offers an extravagant dining experience that reflects the pride that goes into each Italian dish that is prepared and served fresh for you to enjoy. Many of the restaurant’s famous dishes include the finest of ingredients, including parmigiano, prosciutto, fettucine and risotto. Caffino also has its own, famously known pasta CaFfinO. Savor the flavors of your dish and allow yourself to be transported to Italy with every bite.
When dining at this restaurant, you are most likely going to want to try the pescatore, penne alla vodka, la salute or the CaFfino lamb burger. There are also plenty of pizza and pasta options available as well desserts. Caffino also offers catering services for special events and is known to host wedding receptions within its classy location.
Perfect location for us once we found it, hidden behind a metal door just added to the overall experience. Food was excellent and the service very friendly plus a nice wine list.
I love going to Caffino any time and especially to celebrate a special occasion. The staff are very attentive, the ambiance cozy and comfortable and the food reminds me of the dishes my mom it’s fresh, savoury & plentiful 😋❤️
Love this place, food is always great. Atmosphere is awesome, even getting into the restaurant you have to go through iron gates and it is tucked away making you feel like you have to know about this place to know about it.
I would highly recommend Caffino to anyone looking for a romantic spot with old world flare tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the Liberty village district.
The restaurant occupies an 18th century building and has a cool gated courtyard which seemed to transport us to another world. From the moment we walked inside, we were immediately greeted by our server named Andre. I must give credit where credit is due and applaud him for his attentive service. Andre brought a truly special and personal vibe to the whole evening, elevating each dish with his knowledge and impeccable service recommending some seriously delicious options from the simple and well curated menu of classic italian dishes. We ordered the bruschetta to start which was simply scrumptious and the black olives were an unexpected touch that elevated the crostini from the typical. Andre suggested the ossobuco which was braised to perfection and meltingly tender. truly the very best I’ve ever had. My girlfriend ordered the lamb chops, juicy and meaty served on a layer of spinach gnocchi with sautéed ripini and had a most luxurious herby/buttery flavour.
We completed our meal with the light as air Tiramisu, which was delightlfully chocolatey. Verdict: You can impress anyone with an evening spent here - plus it is quiet enough to hear what a date or associate is saying. Definitely our new favourite gem in the city. Truly delicious dishes that showcases a mastery of ingredients, presentation and service.
Great space awesome food
Love Caffino! Tucked away from the street I feel transported to a European cafe. And the food is hand-made delicious!
Good food and value for money. Lovely room. A bit noisy at lunch. Service could be a little friendlier.
Waiter was attentive, funny and quick. We were going to a show so we were limited for time. First time at Caffino... it was lovely and food was exceptional.
After living in Liberty Village for over 5 years I don’t know how I missed finding Caffino until now! Maybe because of the unobtrusive signage and the fact that it’s located through metal gates back from the road? A friend recommended it for our lunch date on Friday and it was amazing! I had the bacon and green peppercorn pasta and it was delicious! I was so impressed I went back for dinner the next day and it was just as good. We had the grilled calamari which was perfectly cooked and very flavourful. I then had a chicken pasta with sun-dried tomatoes, onions, spinach and white wine cream sauce and ate every bite! My dinner partner had the Arabiatta (it’s his favourite Italian dish) and said it was delicious and perfectly cooked...only comment was that it was a tiny bit too spicy even for an Arabiatta (I can vouch for that - I had a bite and love spicy food and it was definitely on the upper end of my threshold). We had the mini donuts and tiramisu for dessert which were both fantastic. The service was also excellent - our waiter was very attentive and the food came out pretty quickly despite it being a busy Saturday night. We will definitely be back.
It’s average food with above average prices. Beautiful room. Italian servers. Good ambience. But the more is nothing special about the food. It might be authentic but that’s all. Desserts very good though.
Terrific lunch well prepared. Pasta cooked a little softer than some restaurants; just the way my friend's Mom cooked pasta so he was very happy. I had the delicious Trio with potato and leek soup sprinkled with asiago cheese, a fresh tasting green salad with the right amount of dressing and the Dino Martino sandwich with the steak cooked medium as asked for.
First time visiting was a very pleasant experience. Food was great and the ambiance really nice.
Food and service was great
The food never disappoints......service is friendly, accurate and timely.
Delicious food. Well prepared. We shared the grilled calamari which can easily become tough and rubbery but our order was perfectly prepared. The pickerel dinner was delicious and again the fish was cooked just right. My wife raved about the seafood risotto.
3 of us had starters and mains then 1 tiramisu, all the food was delicious! Highly recommend
Everything about our experience at Caffino was incredible. We shared a Caesar salad, the beef carpaccio, and the La Romana Gnocchi. My husband then had the Tonno al la Griglia & I had a Dijon crusted Halibut special. Everything was absolutely delicious, homemade with great care & came in a very timely fashion. The gentleman working worked so well as a team to check in on us the perfect amount, and the ambiance and energy was second to none. I've been saying for 3 days that it was one of my best restaurant experiences I've ever had. Highly recommend!
Great experience. Very intimate and hidden.
Food tasted great and the place had an amazing ambiance. I took out a star from food and overall experience because my friend’s pasta portion was too small. The plate it was in was deceiving. It was big but the recessed part was so small. Mine was a decent portion, though. Later found out after leaving that she was barely filled with her food.
Always our favourite spot! Loved the complimentary bubbly, nice touch!
Our server was amazing and the food was great too.
The restaurant was lovely and the food was good but it was absolutely freezing inside because it was a cold day.
Loved it. Can't wait to go again! We celebrated a special birthday and they (our waiter especially) attended to every detail making the evening a wonderful experience.
The food is always good. However, this time the service was disappointing. We were a company group and ordered a bottle of wine. The server did not ask for refills at any point. One guest asked for condiments but it arrived at the end of the meal. I'm hoping that the server was having a bad day, because everyone loved the food but the service could be improved.
Bring a sweater in winter. The environment is beautiful, but drafty and chilly. Food excellent
Went on Friday night with some friends. Even though they had a group booked, they were segregated well and no impact on others who were dining. Great atmosphere, food was simple but well prepared. Place is a little hard to find but that adds to the charm. Deserts were outstanding as was the cappuccino. Will definitely repeat.
I would go again but it is far from where we live.
Food was delicious at a great price! Service was great.
What a fantastic gem in the city that's tucked away in the corner. Service was excellent! Food was excellent! We had mushroom truffle soup, pizza, gnocchi with lamb, risotto and carrot cake! Every meal was cooked to perfection. Can't wait to go back for the next celebration.
my friend and I had a fantastic lunch. Delicious food and excellent service; your staff really go above and beyond. We had an amazing experience. Caffino is upscale without being pretentious. It's a rare find.
I love the food here, it never disappoints. Depending on your server (my favourite is an older gentleman), the service can be truly acceptable. I was very pleased during our last visit and commented to my friend that it's hard to find such good service in the city these days.
Great food and service is really what makes a restaurant. A unique location, decor and ambiance throw it over the top. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the food.
I had a bad experience because they have us sitting at a small table by the corner right next to the kitchen. And we were not allowed to switch tables..
1. There were flies flying over our table and food the whole time
2. All I could smell was the grease from the kitchen
But food was decent. I guess we switched seats it would be better (?)
Had a great night with friends who had never been there before. They loved it.
The place is quaint. Very cute.
The only thing was that there were fruit flies all over the place! And it’s the middle of winter!!
It’s ok Kay. Not to fancy and the food is mediocre.
I love the layout and ambience of the restaurant. We had a wonderful waiter. Every cute for date night. Will come back
First time dining here. Excellent setting, service was top notch (Vince) and the food was wonderful (just like home). Had a nice reasonably priced bottle of wine and they proved us with complimentary dessert and espresso. Will be back as we truly enjoyed the experience. Thanks!
I hosted a birthday dinner. Incredible food, fabulous service - highly recommended !
Food was amazing, service was good and I felt it was good value.
Amazing Italian restaurant. A bit off the beaten track but the menu is terrific and everything we had was wonderful.
Warm reception and cozy restaurant
We always enjoy our meals at this Italian restaurant, where you can actually have a conversation and hear yourself think. The food offer is rather traditional but well done. The deserts are a highlight.
