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.

Everything is fantastic except it’s really challenging to read the menu for it’s too dark. A lot of people took out their cellphones for light

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."

Always love the food at Locale. I preordered apps and dessert which I highly recommend if your going with a party of people for a special occasion. Our server, Analise (I hope this is how I spell her name) was amazing. She made my birthday extra special. I had lemon decorations and she even added a special touch with a runner in the middle of the table. Wine was poured without asking, food was brought in a timely manner, bills were easily dealt with- just great service that made the night absolutely flawless. Her recommendation of the octopus was on point. Love all their fish choices- fresh and always cooked right. Thank you so much to the staff there for always going above and beyond.

Great night out with friends! Excellent drinks! Food was delicious. We all had a bit of everything. The Zuppa de Pesce special was a hit. My steak dish was cooked perfectly. All around excellent experience. Just a tad too dark for me :). I needed more lighting. It was our second visit and happy I was able to have our friends enjoy the same excellent experience again.

I've been to Locale several times. I really like the ambience inside but it is a very noisy restaurant and you cannot hear the conversation at the table and we were only a party of three. We had to keep asking the people to repeat everything and we had to strain to listen. We all had the same problem. Way too noisy!
