This menu is limited to our second floor dining room. If you are in a pinch stop by our main floor where you will find salads, sandwiches, sliced pizza, pastries and gelato, and our own selection of freshly baked breads among the many foods on offer daily.
We serve Brunch on Sunday's from 10:30am-3pm with a separate brunch menu exclusively for Da Geppetto seating.
So dark it’s difficult to read menu items or see what you’re eating. Service was fair to ok, pizza was nothing special, gnocchi was over-cooked. No offer of coffee refill and $3.25 for a very small cup is a bit much. As we were leaving the gent at the table next to us discovered a small piece of plastic in his meal (that he had been chewing). Would never go back or recommend - lots of other options to choose from!
Lovely but for 2 apps and mains with just water it was $120. The noise level was such that you could not talk about business, or anything else for that matter.
Hi ScottB, thank you for your review. Our prices reflect the high quality ingredients we use in every one of our dishes. Our pasta is made in house on a daily basis, our olive oil comes from Puglia region and is pressed exclusively for us, our flour comes from the Marche from a third-generation family run mil who have fields of wheat dedicated to us. We hope you consider returning in the future for your next authentic Italian experience.
One persons food was so delayed. The entire table had to wait for over 15 mins until they received their pizza. It was a formal business meeting so it was quite embarrassing.
Hi there, thank you for your review and informing us on your experience. We will be reviewing this with the manager and chef regarding expediting, especially for important business lunches. Please know a manager is always on duty to assist guests with any immediate need and concerns. Thank you and have a nice day.
Great overall experience. For business meeting back room has very low noise level. Avoid upper level as too noisy and hard to communicate when super busy. Had Antipasto Della Casa to start. Excellent cured Italian meats. More than enough for two. For main had had Orecchiette Di Farro. Pasta was over cooked and couldn’t finish. Guest had Tagliatelle Bolognese and enjoyed it leaving none. Service was great and waiter not far away and attentive. Been here many times and first disappointing pasta. Will return.
Hi there, thank you for your positive review and feedback. Please always make a manager aware if something is not your satisfaction. They would be happy to address it on the spot for you. We will share your comments with our Chef. Thank you for helping us improve.
Great service and excellent food, would go back and have recommend this to a friend.
Hi HannaS, thank you for your 5-star and for recommending us! We hope to see you back at Sud Forno soon!
An excellent place to meet a friend or conduct some business. The food is great the service attentive but not intrusive.
Thank you MichaelR for your review. We hope to have you return to Sud Forno soon!
Great and friendly server! Delicious food.
Thank you for this 5-star review! We appreciate the positive feedback, and hope to see back at Sud Forno soon :)
Staff were very nice. However, we waited nearly 45 minutes for a pizza as the waiter/kitchen messed up the order. They were very apologetic and gave us starters and drinks on the house. It was disappointing but we would try again.
Hi there, thank you for your review and letting us know that your server provided the proper service recovery. We will share your comments with our management team to learn and grow from this in the future. Have a nice day!
We made our reservations for but our table wasn’t ready until 20 mins past that. Service took forever and they had run out of bread, Diet Coke, calamari etc. They brought one of the meals and the other one was wrong. We had to wait a long time for the other meal by which time I had already finished mine. The server was really nice and apologetic but for a restaurant of such good reviews on the busiest night you’d think they’d be better prepared. The food was not great and served in small quantities. Overall I wouldn’t recommend.
Hi JessicaM, thank you for your service review. We will be sharing this with our management team. Please know a manager is always on duty to assist guest with immediate needs and could have cleared this up for you on the spot. We hope you consider returning in the future for you next authentic Italian meal. Thank you and have a nice day!
Friendly and prompt service! Noise levels, lighting and ambiance were also great for a group of women trying to catch-up over brunch and actual conversations.
Hi Ange, thank you for this review. We're happy to read you enjoyed your time with us at Sud Forno for brunch! We hope to see you again soon :)
The ambience and service was okay. The dessert (Nutella pizza) was great. The butternut squash ravioli was terrible. The sauce wasn’t very rich and the pasta felt undercooked. The sauce wasn’t absorbed by the pasta even a single bit and it wasn’t enough for pasta. It felt very dry and too chewy. There was no flavour of sage and the cheese (topping) in the pasta (was used too sparingly). The server never came down to ask how was the food.
Hi AarucheG, thank you for your review. We will share your comments with the manager and Chef. Please know there is always a manager on to assist with guest's immediate needs. We hope you will give us another opportunity in the future. Thank you and have a nice day!
Perhaps it was because it’s Christmas season, and the staff may be overworked, but it was still disappointing to experience the poor service at Sud Forno. Upon walking into the restaurant main floor, we were told by staff to walk upstairs into the formal dining area and someone will seat us there, so we did. We stood by the check in area upstairs for a good five minutes and no one came by to help us. We had to walk towards the back kitchen and wave someone down to come help us. No apologies, let alone a welcoming smile was given by the staff that seated us. After letting the staff know we have a reservation, the staff didn’t bother to ask for our name on the reservation which resulted in OpenTable system thinking we missed the reservation and we had to spend extra time submitting an inquiry. That aside, it could not be more clear that the staff did not want to be there. The exchanges were cold and body language was anything but welcoming. Food was delicious but the experience was disappointing due to the poor service. We’ve been to this restaurant more than 4 times and never had a bad experience till this time. Again, holiday seasons could be a tough time for employees in the hospitality industry, but I truly believe that it sets you apart from other establishments when your customers have an equally good expedience as any other time of the year, if not a better one.
Have been there for lunch a number of times. Food & service are both great. Restaurant is noisy however. Overall the restaurant presents good in a lively atmosphere.
Thank you PeterB for this great review. This Sud Forno is a larger space with high ceilings which can cause it to have a louder and festive environment when at capacity. We hope to have you return soon! Have a nice day :)
Charming room upstairs with great service. Loved it.
Hi JosephF, thank you for your 5-star review and kind words! We hope to see you back at Sud Forno soon and wish you a Happy New Year!
Went TO Sud For no for a team holiday lunch. Very friendly staff and food was excellent. Everyone enjoyed the dishes they ordered.
Everything was excellent!!!
Thank you so much, we're happy to read this! We look forward to your return, and happy holidays :)
Rude reception by hostess upstairs; we seemed to be bothering her upon our arrival despite having reservation. Server was helpful and more friendly than hostess, but mostly cold.
Overall would not recommend.
Hi EpiCureMD, we apologize that were made to feel this way, it is most definitely not our intention. We will share these comments with our management team to be reviewed internally. Thank you and happy holidays
I love this spot! The food is delicious and the staff are excellent!
Thank you Alex for your review on food and service! We will share this with our team at Sud Forno. We hope to see you back soon :)
It’s was nice, but when booking this it’s wasn’t obvious I was booking the above table seating, which is a different restaurant.
Was nice but was looking forward to eating items from the quick serve bar area and having a nice table. That’s all. Still a fantastic place to eat.
Hi there, thank you for your review. We have two dining options at Sud Forno on Temperance. Our main floor is a "grab and go" servery during the day where people can grab their food and find a table to eat at. Our upper floor during the day acts as a full service restaurant, called Da Geppetto, with an a la carte menu. After 5pm the entire location transforms into the full service restaurant! We only take reservations for Da Geppetto. We hope this clarifies everything, and happy holidays.
I was not impressed with the food. I was expecting the Terroni quality, and everything we ordered (pastas, pizza, carpaccio, sides) was disappointing. The restaurant decor is nice.
Thé place is lovely the food tasty but a bit salty. We came for our Christmas party
Hi ChristelleA, thank you for the positive review. A manager is always on duty to help you with any food concerns you may have. Happy holidays and we hope to see you again soon :)
Sud Forno was definitely not as great as all the hype. I am not Italian nor am I a professional chef and I could have made a better smoked salmon salad and a much better spaghetti dish.
On the up-side, the Americanos were stellar.
On the down-side, the waiter gave me another table's bill and it took ages to flag him down. When I finally did there was no apology. He came back with the right bill and again, no explanation or apology.
Would I go back again? Probably not, which is too bad as it is close to my office and home. Maybe service in the bar is better.
Hi TorBorgie, thank you for your feedback and letting us know you thought the Americanos were stellar. We would love if you gave us another chance to try one of the many other stellar items we offer at Sud Forno on Temperance. We go through great lengths to provide our guests with the best and highest quality ingredients. We hope you consider returning to experience what majority of our guests do. Thank you and happy holidays
Poor service and food was not to expectation.
Our server was very kind and friendly. Will be coming back for sure next time we visit Toronto. Great staff and great food!
Hi MariaB, thank you for this great review! We will be sharing these comments with our staff at Sud Forno. We look forward to your return :)
Great service but main floor was too loud and too cold. We had super noisy group of 5 next to us at a table only meant for 4 and was so squished in
Hi there, thank you for the great service comments. We will be sharing your review with our management team in regards to your seating arrangement and the noise. Thank you and we hope to have you back at Sud Forno in the future.
Great food, and portioned enough to share with friends.
Hi Sleepy, we have lots of options on our menu to choose from that are great for sharing with friends! We hope to have you back soon :)
Always a wonderful experience. Service is on point...authentic Italian starts with quality ingredients and Sud Forno hits the mark on that all of the time.
Thank AnthonyC for appreciating everything Sud Forno has to offer. We go through great lengths to provide our customers with the best quality ingredients! We look forward to having you return :)
Great food but I’ve never found the service to be great. You really have to work to get anyone’s attention. Consistently. And the tables are really squished together. Impossible to get out if you need to use the washroom you’ll be bumping someone at the next table for sure. I go for the food and location but it’s not an amazing experience otherwise.
The food was amazing as usual. A bit loud but still bearable.
Thank you for your 5-star review! We will share your feedback with our management team. We hope to have you return to Sud Forno soon!
Nominally “Italian” cuisine, plenty of pricy wines to match which items? Meal cost quickly added up and arguably not a “$$” venue unless you stick with a pizza! ....value for money...hmmm, not clear!
Hi GeraldF, at Sud Forno on Temperance we have 2 dining options. One being the full service, a la carte menu and the other the servery on the main floor. The two options offer different price points, however it the servery offers many cost effective food choices.
Tables are too close together. I could hear other people's conversations. But otherwise good. Service was good. Food was great.
Hi PreetikaM, thank your for you review. We will be sharing your comments with our management team regarding the table configuration. We're happy to read you enjoyed the food! We hope to see you back at Sud Forno soon
Never disappointed great staff service food creative and delicious has become a favourite! I recommend it to my goody friends. Also an unknown but delicious wine list
Hi ROYH, thank you for your wonderful review. Our Italian wine list is exclusive to our restaurants and sister locations. We look forward to having you return to Sud Forno soon :)
Food was not as good as I expect from Terroni restaurant
I made a note in my reservation that we would be going to see a show at 8pm. We were seated just before 6pm and nobody came by to take our order for drinks for at least 15 minutes, before I finally asked the hostess if we could be given a different server because we needed to make our show. I understood that we were around several large parties that would take time and attention. When we were seated in our new section, we told our new server again that we would be going to a show at 8pm and that our third guest would be arriving closer to 7pm, so we would order for her. We asked her to have the third dish ready for 7pm (the other two, as soon as possible). She barely came to check in on us during our appetizers and didn’t clear away our plates until our mains had come out. ALL of our dishes came out at 7:15pm from our FIRST SERVER, at which time I had to ask for the bill immediately because we had 15 minutes to eat, pay and get out. It was not the enjoyable pre-show meal that we thought we would be coming for and (on a Wednesday night, no less) poor service. We’ve been to several other Terroni restaurants and will not be coming back to this location.
Great ambiance, awesome food, service was satisfactory
Thank you Ashley for your 5-star review! We look forward to your return to Sud Forno on Temperance :)
All staff were extremely nice and helpful - just not very attentive. Ordered the smoked salmon salad and large pizza for 2 people. The pizza portion was a healthy portion and quite tasty. The salad on the other hand was pretty limp Not very good.
Hi forknspoon, thank you for your feedback and review on service. We will be sharing your comments with the chef. You did not mention if a manager was notified and able to assist you to rectify the issue on the spot? Our managers are always there to assist guest with immediate needs and concerns! We hope you consider returning to Sud Forno to experience what most of our guests do. Thanks and have a nice day :)
Not the best experience I’ve had here. The table under the stairs on the ground floor was cozy, but so dimly lit that we all needed our phone flashlights to read the wine list and menu. I think the low light contributed to a server misjudging the space and tipping cheese and olives into my partners’ lap, and nearly doing the same later with a full glass of wine.
Appetizers and pastas were fine, maybe not as tightly executed as other times. Nice desserts. Service was all right; friendly, apologetic about the mishap. Seemed as if the upstairs level was empty, which seemed I usual for a Friday evening.
Hi stagemaner, thank you for you review we appreciate all feedback. We will be sharing your review with our management team as we are always looking for ways to improve. We hope you consider returning in the future. Have a nice day :)
For the price we paid, we expected higher quality food and better service. However, the food was good.
Hi Alana, thank you for your 4-star review. We will be sharing this with management to review service. We hope you consider returning in the future to La Bettola di Terroni!
The food is amazing with fresh ingredients and presented perfectly.The space is beautiful with nice views of the city .Surprisingly affordable for the quality of the food and location
Hi JoeS, thank you so much for appreciating what Sud Forno has to offer. Our pasta is made in house daily, our flour is imported from a third generation family run mill in the Marche region of Italy and our olive oil is made of 100% Coratina olives and made by a family friend in Italy who has many fields dedicated to the its production just for us. We look forward to hosting you again at Sud Forno :)
It is our first time upstairs and I have been downstairs 3 other times. Everything is fantastic. While you say the noise is energetic, it is a big loud, but not a surprise at lunch time.
Keep up the good work, do let things slip.
Hi Lazza, thank you for your 5-star review. We will keep up the good work. Lunches are extremely busy and can result in a festive environment. We hope you consider returning for dinner for a more intimate setting :)
