About

Pazzia Osteria is Etobicoke’s home for elegant and authentic Italian cuisine, serving freshly prepared meals in its rustic and charming eatery. For a tantalizing starter, try the grilled Italian sausage with rapini or the fresh mussels in a spicy marinara sauce. Pazzia Osteria’s house entrée specialties include the mussels, shrimp and calamari cioppini, the spaghetti alla chitarra with hearty meatballs and the healthy whole wheat fettuccine with beans and sausage in tomato sauce. If you are in the mood for more casual fare, Pazzia also crafts a decadent array of pizzas, such as the pizza pazza with asiago cheese, sundried tomatoes and spinach. And you can’t go wrong ending your dining experience with a homemade dessert, like the rich tiramisu.

Pazzia Osteria also has menu items that are suitable for vegetarians and those who abstain from gluten. They can also cater or host your special event.

I am a longtime customer of Pazzia. Both the service and food are top-notch. Franco, the host is always willing to chat and he truly cares that you have a great experience.

Chef Vittorio can cook everything - pasta, pizza, fish - he does it all well! The desserts are delicious too.

It's definitely worth the drive from downtown Toronto since it's in the West end of the city.

On The Queensway, among many other good Italian restaurants, Pazzia Osteria stands out as a personal favourite. Family owned and run it is always a good choice for homemade cooking. We have yet to have a poor meal. Sometimes it gets a bit hectic because it is a small venue and a bit cramped, but that atmosphere is lovely for getting to know your neighbours. We would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for great food at reasonable prices and a good time to be had by all.

I made a reservation for two for New Years Eve via Open Table. I arrive at the establishment on time and as soon as I walk in the owner approaches me. No warm greetings. Just a "I tried calling you". Ihe informed my boyfriend and I that he would need the table we were to be seated at back within an hour. Completely unacceptable. Never in my life have I experienced such service. I hadn't even been seated and I already felt rushed. He also made some underhanded remark about "the younger generation" because my boyfriend and I are in mid twenties. At this point I stopped listening. I was extremely disappointed as it was New Year's Eve and I was trying to give a local establishment my business and try something new. Won't be returning

The service, food, and ambience was all okay, but nothing extraordinary. I probably wouldn't return as there are other better Italian restaurants that i've been to. Wouldn't recommend friends to go since the food was pretty uninspiring. Good, but meh.

I was at Pazzia for lunch a few weeks ago and we were the only ones there. They were very attentive and since one of my guests has celiac disease they were wonderful at making sure her meal was totally gluten free. We had delicious ceasar salads, mussels, eggplant parmiagian, calamari. Everything was great.

We went on Saturday night for dinner and the place was hopping. Every table filled and it was very relaxing. The only problem was that they didn't take our orders quickly enough. We were having some cocktails and we were the first ones there that night, but by the time they took our dinner order they were out of the specials. That was a bit disappointing. However the food was great except the gnocchi which wasn't fab.
