    Main courses were far too slow coming out of the kitchen (mains came one-at-a-time 90 minutes after being seated and nearly a full hour after appetizers). Little to no communication from server.

    The vibes of the place were nice, noise wasn't too bad, and the appetizers were yummy... but there were repeated errors with our order that worsened our dining experience! We ordered the olives as an appetizer but received the focaccia. I The focaccia came out so quickly, I thought it was a starter given to all diners. But I was surprised the olives were not brought out -- we had to ask what happened to the order. Then, we put in an order for a vegetable and two pastas as our mains and only received the pastas. By this point, we were disappointed enough with the service, that we didn't flag the second issue. In summary, due to multiple errors with our order, we ended up having a very bread/gluten heavy meal when were attempting an order with more variety. If the person taking our order had simply confirmed or written down our order, this would not have happened. This was partner's 30th birthday dinner, so pretty disappointing :(

    Very lovely restaurant! Service was fine, nothing special but no complaints. Had some tasty but overpriced (typical Toronto) cocktails. The meatballs and focaccia are TO DIE for. Rapini was great too, but we really disliked the tortellini! Tasted kind of watery and not flavourful, plus the pasta dough almost tasted raw. Would overall recommend coming here for some yummy veg Italian!

    My favourite spot in the city!! Every time I've been to Gia the food is always outstanding. A lot of vegan restaurants have a very "vegan vibe" to them, if that makes sense. Gia does not feel like a vegan/vegetarian focused restaurant: everything is inviting and delicious. I'd even venture so far as to say that if you brought someone here without telling them, they'd have no idea that it was plant-based-- just delicious.

    Overall, loved this experience! The ambience, decor, glassware, dinnerware, cutlery were all so beautiful, loved it all. Our server was FANTASTIC. The food was terrific for the most part. The crab cakes were a bit dry, could have used more sauce with them. Meat balls were a touch dry too, but the sauce helped immensely. The gem salad, phyllo wrapped brie, and olive oil cakes were all favs for me. Would defs return!

    The food and service were amazing. The only issue was for my family in their 50’s it was too loud. Maybe it was just our specific table location and the other guests that happened to be around us. If you’re sensitive to noise maybe request a table near the front. Otherwise I would definitely come back with my friends.

    Super delicious and beautifully presented fare at a cozy, cool plant-forward spot in the hip ossington-dundas area. Saturday night dinner, patrons still coming in at 10PM. Dimly lit with high energy tracks playing in the background. Dinner for 2: expect to pay $150+ depending on drinks & upsells on food. Great experience, difficult to get a rezo, can only book on OpenTable. Definitely will go back, great date place. Young millenial crowd.
