A big thank you to the team for making our evening at Locale so special. A special shout out to Grace for her warm welcome and over seeing the little details that truly made it a “date night” we’ll never forget. Looking forward to our next celebration at Locale King City as a family of three.
Warm Regards and Happy Holidays.

Our second server, a young Asian man, is arguably among the top 5 I’ve ever seen, and I eat out frequently.

I was looking for something new me and my beautiful best friend. I saw this on OpenTable and saw the reviews and the location as I love driving through King City. I gotta say this was one the best experiences ever. Warm greeting from the staff, a great waiter and the food itself was 5 star. Had the fried calamari and shrimp appetizer to share. Love that it was seasoned perfectly no sauce needed thankfully! Our entrees were the lamb shank and mushroom pizza. Both were high quality and delicious. Finished with the budino (hopefully spelled it right) loved the sweet and salty combo. If you’re looking for great food in a nice cozy place this is a spot you should consider.

Nice Place just wished if they asked if we preferred upstairs or downstairs since we booked far in advance and it was hard for one person to do the stairs! Mine and my husbands food was barely warm other than that food was good and service was great! Would go back!

Live music was very nice - muscles were excellent and
the pumpkin fritters were outstanding for desert.

Food choices and quality were very good. Service was friendly and attentive (without be overbearing). Warm and welcoming dining atmosphere that was well suited to for a business meeting over lunch.

Locale is a very busy and crowded restaurant The service was extremely slow to the point of being unreasonable. The food was good. The live music was a nice touch. Unfortunately this is not my preferred dining experience.

Entertainment upstairs, the service, the food...all very good!
Our server was superb...his name now escapes me. He was simpatico, knew the menu choices well, as with the specials and the wine list. We have been to Locale before and will be returning and recommending it to our circle of family and friends.

Definitely try this place out. It will likely make its way into your go-to locations for a reliable and guaranteed exceptional experience.

Homemade pasta with an ambiance which is both welcoming, trendy and chic. The staff are focused on your overall dining experience, not just their own individual roles.

We will be back as this is a great and worthy alternate to Figo, Gusto other established Toronto hotspots.

Everything was great. Perhaps a tad too dark, but some people like the intimate atmosphere, so I wouldn't change anything. Thank you.

The food was impeccable, and the service was beyond it. The Paccheri and Tagliatelle were cooked to perfection while Jorge was patient, courteous, knowledgeable and generous. We will certainly be back.

As always, an excellent lunch! The heirloom beet salad & Zucca pizza were both delish! I really didn't have "room" for dessert but could not resist the chocolate torte with a cappuccino. Also wonderful! Excellent service too! Looking forward to our next visit! Thank you!

Locale King City has not only the best atmosphere, the friendliest servers, but the best food around. It’s no wonder Locale King City is a family favorite.....even our 12 year old constantly wants to go back.

"I love the warmth and laid back atmosphere of this place. My friends and I definitely will return to try more dishes. The daily special pizza with the squash amazing and the squid dish was delicious. The vegetarian in the group loved the tagliatelli. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."
