My friend and I attended a screening at Tiff and ended the amazing day with dinner at La Fenice. The food was delicious, hot and cooked to perfection. The staff went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and our needs were met. I am back at Tiff next weekend and will definitely be having another dinner at La Fenice

This is an excellent italian restaurant with great food, ambience and service. We had lunch to celebrate a birthday and Derek our server, surprised our celebrant by using a sparkling candle on her Tiramisu dessert which is her wish and it was was fulfilled. The food are delicious with really nice plating. They have a very cozy ambience that it made you stay longer and keep the conversation going with friends 😊
We enjoyed every bite of our food. This place is highly recommended and we will go back definitely

Went for dinner on a Monday night. Food is excellent as always, but I believe that due to the pandemic and the timing of the province allowing indoor dining just a little while ago, the restaurant is missing staff and service was a little longer than expected. Having said that, nothing to complain about the quality of service received.

Decided to stop in before the Jays game for a meal, it turned out to be a fantastic idea! The food was excellent and the service was just great too! Our server Amanda was amazing, she knew we were going to the game so service was well timed and not rushed ! I can’t wait to go back and try another delicious item from the menu, the hardest thing was trying to decide what to order!
We will see you again soon!!

I thought the place was very nice, with a quiet atmosphere which I enjoyed. The servers were great and extremely pleasant. I had a seafood risotto and I do wish that they grilled the calamari as I feel it was a little too rubbery. That's about the only negative thing I can really say about the restaurant. I liked everything about it and I definitely plan on going back.
