Sud Forno is located in the heart of the financial district at 132 Yonge St. in a stunning heritage building which dates back to the 1850's . Hidden on the second floor of our bakery you will find our gem, Da Geppetto. Here you will find an original & exciting menu inspired by the bakery, ask about our signature Sud Forno ingredients recreated and presented for you at Da Geppetto.

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.

Lovely space, great menu, convenient location but holy sh*t is this place loud! Servers can't hear orders, diners can't hear each other, plates are crashing, chairs are scraping, music is blaring. If you have the misfortune to sit near the top of the stairs, you get all the downstairs noise floating up as well. While it's a great spot for pizza, I will never come here again for a business lunch.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
