Not our first time at Cardinale and definitely won’t be our last. As always, great service and great food. The drink menu seems to be getting even more creative and the food was delicious.

Overall dinner at Cardinale was good. There were some issues with the food - the pancetta in the gnocchi was fatty and the panna cotta was not set - but overall it was delicious. Our main server was great and she was very helpful however they had an additional server bringing out food who did not know which seat numbers we were or what dishes he was bringing out. We ended up at a table near a large group who were very loud and made it hard to hear.

We had great food, great service - our waitress Jennifer was amazing- attentive, personable, friendly and took an interest in who we were. Graham was also fantastic - he remembered us from a previous visit and made a point of going to each table to check in. He’s got the best cocktail list and his recommendations were top notch. We will go again, and again!

It was our first time here and it was amazing! The best tartare I’ve ever had, an incredible feature wine, and delicious pasta. Our server was super friendly and knowledgeable, and she was perfectly attentive. The place is gorgeous and intimate, I’ll definitely be back!

Recommended by a frequent diner and well known patron. Graham was a brilliant fun host brilliant maker of cocktails. A series of appetizers was a great way to sample the fare and would be what we’ll do next time too.

Absolutely outstanding! David took care of us and was excellent. Both the wine and cocktail recommendations were spot on. He was clearly very very busy, but still took the time to check in and chat like we were his only table. Great atmosphere and excellent food. We were on a time crunch so only did cocktails and dinner, but we are very excited to come back for a full night out. Everything was very reasonably priced, especially the alcohol. Will be back for sure.

Service was great, food excellent, drinks unique! It was a bit noisy for me, but there was a birthday party going on. Next time we go I expect it will be a bit quieter, and there will definitely be a next time fairly soon!

My favourite guilty pleasure. Chicken liver parfait.. excuse me? How can you be that delicious. Probably my favourite to date. The bread was the perfect accompaniment. The freshest pasta. Linguine is always my go to. Thank you chef, and thank you to our knowledgeable and engaging server. Made our date night one we won’t soon forget! You’ll be seeing us for those warming pasta nights we crave.

Fantastic date night. Service is was outstanding, I love how there is a team mentality in serving tables. We often had various wait staff supporting the refreshing of our drinks, clearing of tables and engaging in conversation. Food was amazing as per usual! My Italian husband ordered some bread to soak up all the beautiful sauces…. Sign of a great meal!

Strange - just live a 5 minute Bird ride from here. First time - I usually skip Italian restaurants cause I can cook killer pasta. But I have to say everything was great. I am planning to return. Go figure.

Everything about our dinner was wonderful. We sat outside on the patio which was very cozy. Our server was very helpful giving us suggestions that were popular. We ordered a salad, the calamari and cannelloni. Everything was absolutely delicious. We will definitely be back.
