This place is a gem, great for all ages, if you are celebrating or dating or just out for simple dinner, you will get a fine dining experience with the company of the amazing Chef/Tenor Davide Bazzali(M-TH), cozy restaurant, italian culinary, personalized decor that no two chair, plate, glass are the same, and not to forget, excellent food & service. Feels like an Italian tourist while still in hometown! 100% recommend!

Nous avons passé un excellent moment, le chef/chanteur d'opéra nous a donné des frissons par ses qualités vocales. La formule table d'hôte nous a permis de découvrir la belle profondeur de la carte, une cuisine italienne plutôt traditionnelle, mais excellement bien exécutée. Antipasti, pâtes, viande ou poisson, tout était très bon. Les desserts, assez simples, était peut-être une petite coche en dessous, mais ça reste du plaisir pour le palais en fin de repas. Le cadre, atypique, est aussi très sympathique, on se croirait presque à la maison. Il faut aller y faire un tour.

Wonderful surprise how much we loved this place! Turned out it was BYOB, and there was a liquor store next door. We had the tasting menu for $40 on a Sunday (also a surprise to us) and it was an incredible 5 course meal. Waitress was wonderful, kind and attentive. Would highly recommend.

We used to love this place! Unfortunately the last time we went, Bazzali wasn’t there and the food just wasn’t the same. We ordered the same dishes we usually do, but they weren’t executed to perfection as they usually are. We are disappointed and likely won’t return. Considering the prices, we expected consistency.

What a great restaurant with delicious food and a great ambiance. The table d'hôte had a great selection, with generous portions and a great variety. We were a group and got all served at the same time with the food being at the right temperature. The waiters gave great service, the chef came to our table to see how the food was. Overall a memorable experience, can't wait to go back!

I ate here on a Sunday night “date night” with my husband. It was quiet and all the food was delicious. I’m super curious to go back some time to hear the opera singing (Mon-Thur).

My wife and I were very disappointed with the food. The service was ok, but the music was weird and too loud, the dishes didn't really get picked up quickly enough and the price was way too expensive for what we got (not in terms of quantity, but quality). We had the menu dégustation and there were way too many pasta dishes. We were really looking forward to trying this neighbourhood italian restaurant, but unfortunately, we won't be recommending this place to friends.

Juste un gros gros WOW pour cette expérience remarquable. C’était ma première fois dans ce resto. La bouffe est succulente, le service est plus qu’impeccable, et le prix est très raisonnable. Les portions de la table d’hôte sont mégas généreuses.

Et le chef qui chante de l’opéra a quelques reprises dans la soirée! C’est magique, ça mets une atmosphère très chaleureuse. Comme vous pouvez le voir, j’ai adoré mon expérience et j’y retournerai régulièrement avec empressement.

This is a GEM in Little Italy. A quirky spot with eclectic decor, friendly staff and DELICIOUS food. The price point is very reasonable, especially if you take the 5 course table d'hôte. The portions are REAL portion sized, which is sadly rare in higher end restaurants. I love a restaurant that gives you both delicious food and enough food to fill you up! On top of all that, if you go on a weekday, the head chef sings opera while cooking in the open concept kitchen. It makes for a beautiful evening.

The service was lovely, the food was delicious, the pricing was just right, and the portions were very generous.

The reason this restaurant doesn't get 5 stars from me is for something I find extremely important when choosing a restaurant: AMBIANCE. Honestly, the lack of ambiance in this place made me swear I wouldn't go back.

1 - It was extremely cold in the restaurant, so most of the patrons were wearing their jackets inside. They had spot heaters plugged in to try to warm the place up but it wasn't doing much. Also, the pipes were frozen so the bathroom sink didn't work - no one could wash their hands! I can understand that we live in Canada, it gets cold, but at least warn people before they come in!! Or offer some kind of compensation...

2 - The lighting made me feel like I was in a cafeteria. Consider lowering the lighting a little bit, it's much too bright.

3 - There was no music, so I felt like I could hear everyone's conversations around me.

4 - I know it's a BYOB, but they seriously need to invest in proper wine glasses... I don't want my wine served in a chalice the size of my head while my date has his in a tiny champagne glass.

Il Bazzali has lots of potential, but this particular experience was disappointing for me.

Loved the meal and dessert! No corkage fee is something I never knew existed at a restaurant before. Service was excellent, I swear every piece of the decor, plates, furniture, etc. was unique, we saw very few “sets”. They were undergoing minir renovations but it didn’t impact our evening really, highly suggested.

Listen to him sing. Great. All the ladies were taking videos of the handsome opera singing chef. I wonder why ;-)

Excellent place - no wonder it is always full.

Get your local wine from the place next door.
