    One of the best new restaurants in Toronto! Atmosphere was sophisticated and fun and beside a very cool renovated movie house and wine shop. The food was excellent with a good wine selection and great cocktails. A lovely interior and covered patio. Went there for a birthday dinner and it was a special evening.

    From the moment we walked in to the restaurant it was stunning! The drinks and food were fantastic! I’d definitely recommend the steak and octopus and the pastas. The menu was very simple in terms of what the restaurant offered however between the 4 of us and trying a lot of what was on the menu, everything tasted AMAZING. Would 100% go back! Thank you for a great dinner and night out!

    This place was great! Great food, beautiful ambiance and attentive staff. We celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary here and it was our first time at the restaurant and needless to say we will be back 100% in the future to try all the pasta dishes they make! Loved it. Try it. You will not regret it.

    The reservation was for 9:45. When we arrived they seated us but did not inform that the kitchen apparently was closed. Traveled there for a "late" reservation to ultimately be told they couldn't serve us.

    Was going to a concert next door at 7PM so rez was at 6PM when the restaurant opened. We got there 5:50PM and were turned away since they were not open yet. So, we went across the street for a coffee. Got called at 6:02PM on my cell asking if were we going to make our rez. WTF! Really! Had to ask for cheese for our pasta. They did not have cheese. Saw them running around trying to find the cheese. Finished 3/4 of our pasta before the cheese got to our table. Just a lot of painful little avoidable things that irritated what would have been a pleasant dining experience into something annoying. It was regretful because we both really enjoyed everything else about the meal. The staff was pleasant and professional but prone to a series of unfortunate SNAFUs. Above all, the food was really good! No problems there. Lovely restaurant, a great setting and a fantastic location. I could see that without the above problems that this could have been an amazing experience. Unfortunately, I cannot help but focus on those shortcomings.

    This was my second time at Osteria Rialto. The menu had changed. The stuffed zucchini flowers and fried rice croquettes were great. The pasta and main not so much. Portions are small and the prices have gone up. The biggest price increase is in the alcoholic drinks. For a tumbler that was mostly ice and a splash of limoncello and mint we paid the hefty price of $19. Never again.

    This place is a gem in west Toronto downtown. A little pricey, but worth it for the quality of food, the attention to detail, the ambience, and the impeccable service. Surprisingly, I was able to get a reservation on relatively short notice but that will probably change, unfortunately, when the word gets around. I'm looking forward to the opening of the upstairs bar!

    Menu not interesting. Too many fried foods. Pasta really undercooked. Octopus tough and rubbery. Presentation on plate not attractive. Wine list skews to many high end bottles with limited selection of reasonably priced. This used to be an excellent restaurant. I wonder if the chef or management has changed.

    Community Italian with old world atmosphere and menu. Limited choices with excellent appetizers, small portions and large portions. Excellent Italian wine list. Could not be cleaner. We sat in a covered outdoor area. Easy to get there from major hotels by Uber. Much harder to get back but safe.

    The food, ambiance, and service were quite extraordinary. Our server, Victoria, was attentive, thorough, and a delight to speak with. She explained the menu and specials in detail and ensured our birthday celebration was special. Great ambience with Motown music all night, and a wonderful large table off to the side for our party to engage in conversation privately. The food was amazing. I’d suggest splitting multiple appetizers, pasta portions are great for a single serving, and main courses can be split throughout. The hazelnut torte and pistachio ice cream are a great way to complete the meal. Will be visiting again!

The food at Rialto is also great - inventive yet unpretentious classic Italian fare. We love the ambience, food and service here!

    The patio is a wonderful place to enjoy cocktails and delicious food. The vibe is super friendly and a bit upscale, which we loved. It felt a little more special than a regular patio, which fits with the menu being a little more unique and imaginative. Our server, Isaiah, was there exactly when we needed him. He certainly added to our overall enjoyable experience. We will return!
