Really good atmosphere, nice design. Food was good, service was excellent.
Not the best experience since we waited for over 1:15 hr to get our main course after coming in for an early lunch and specifically letting our hostess known the drop dead time by which we had to leave. Overall, the attentiveness to our table was quite poor and while the server was great at promoting the restaurant, he was not so good about attending to his customers. The food was ok but not inspiring. On a positive note, the veal was cooked very well, but was overly salted (this comment is coming from a person who really likes salty food). There are so many nice restaurants in Toronto so I have no plans to return.
John and his staff never disappoint
Excellent food and service as always. We love eating here and keep coming back!
Great place. Interior was a bit warm temp wise. Will definitely return for a third visit
Very good food! I’m very happy I tried this place. Will definitely come back. Reminds me Michael White’s Marea restaurant in Manhattan.
We went on a Friday night and it was still pretty quiet and the place has such a great vibe to it. The food wasn't as good to me (we had the Grilled Calamari and Prosciutto Pizza), but my girlfriend seemed to enjoy it more. Service was really good and attentive. Would go back again and try other dishes.
Love the place. Food is always good and the staff is very attentive!
Dom - King City
Spectacular as usual
John and his staff know how to look after you
I’ve never been disappointed
Worth the drive into the City
Great restaurant with excellent food!!
This is actually the best Italian restaurant in Toronto! The service is timely, friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is cozy, relaxing, social and stylish - not too loud, which is key. The food is amazing, generously portioned, very fairly priced, real Italian food. The antipasti are enough for 3 people to share (I've tried them all and I recommend the fried artichokes and calamari), the risotto is so tasty, perfectly cooked and creamy (braised rib is my favourite, but the mushroom or seafood is always a good choice), the pasta is always al dente and delicious (the lamb ragu is perfect, and the cavatelli with sausage and rapini), the fish is light and tasty, not too salty, the salads are also great (I suggest the beet salad or the arugula with pear), and the homemade cannoli are fresh, crispy and creamy. The huge wine list is thoughtfully picked. John, the owner, is there every night working front lint alongside his staff which shows pride and love for his restaurant and diners. Highly recommend eating here!
Great time and service, they were very kind to send a dessert for my husbands birthday. Second time here and I will be returning.
Great location and stylish decor. Food and service were both very good. Look forward to returning in the summer to try the patio area!
As always... beautiful food, service and ambiance.
The service was very slow. We didn’t get our food until an hour after ordering and the carbonara was very bitter.
Great italian food and seems like i didn’t leave home . Fun place . Nothing to complain about price point is very reasonable.
Fresh, hot food... unique recipes with flavour... good wine recommendations with each course... absolutely outstanding service...
Everything was fantastic. We'd go back any day. All was delicious
Nice ambience . Server pleasant but not trained properly, asked for meal order as soon as sat down before drinks, brought appetizers then didn't see for 35 minutes. Food quality - overcooked and dry. Arugula salad was very good though.
Amazing flavours. Pasta was slightly undercooked.
Ovest is our goto place if we want to have a good time! The food and ambiance are great .....the owner and staff are so nice and welcoming!
Would highly recommend this place!
Great food (some of the best pasta of my life), friendly service and good ambience.
Ovest is a great restaurant. The service, ambiance, and most importantly the food, was fantastic. The portions are amazing for the price. Just a great place to go to have great food and be able to have a conversation.
I highly recommend Ovest.
Always happy to visit the Ovest, one of my favorite Italian places in Toronto. Pizza anda pasta are fresh and are very tasteful.
The food was wonderful and we would go back for that alone. The waitperson was inexperienced (we think) and was not particularly knowledgeable. She was attentive but not at the professional level I would expect from a restaurant of this caliber.
Great food and big selection of wines. The venue is nice and service was good
Love this spot. Everytime I've come here it's been an amazing experience. Pure class
Food was bad. Service was good. That’s it in a nutshell.
This place is AWESOME! The food is really good, better than expected. The service was great. I highly recommend it!!!
Great. Good food, great service
Delcious food and amazing service, will be back for sure
One of the best restaurants in town!
The staff was extreamly nice and the overall vibe of the restaurant was amazing.
Great Authentic Italian Food
Food was delicious, authentic, great service!
Good service, fabulous menu. I had difficulty in deciding what to have - because I wanted to try everything. The sweet softspoken server told me what she thinks most people like and what she herself really likes. I had the pork, it was delicious, tender pork with a very tasty mushroom madiera sauce. It was quite a heavy dish and I would have liked a few crisp vegetables for texture instead of the roasted vegetables but it was delicious. My guest had the pancetta pizza - it was absolutely loaded with pancetta and arugula. I love it when a pizza has lots of the toppings it promises. It was an early dinner so I was expecting it be quite but when we left at 7pm there was only one other table there. Only three beer options but fabulous wine list.
I would go back.
Food and service were great. It was a bit chilly inside the restaurant but besides that it was a great overall experience!
I reserved a table here for a dinner party with my friends to celebrate a new job. The food was delicious (half of us had the risotto of the day with mushrooms), great cocktails, and the service was wonderful. We all enjoyed our dishes and had a lovely time.
Quick service. Great food. Attentive wait staff. Such value, too!
