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.

The food dishes we ordered turned out to be very greasy and small portion. Not worth the price.

I made reservations about a week in advance for my girlfriend and I to spend Valentine's day here. Simona, the manager, called me a few days prior to confirm the details of our reservation and was an absolute delight and accommodating. Considering the occasion, I had asked if she could seat us somewhere quiet and away from all the noise and she was able to accommodate us very well! Our waiter, Josh, was extremely attentive and provided an amazing service. Great experience overall. We'll definitely be coming back soon!

Went here for Valentine’s Day. The food was filling (we ordered ravioli and pizza for lunch and were too full to eat for the rest of the day). The ambience wasn’t too loud and the waiters were very kind and respectful.

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.

Hi Elizabeth, thank you for your review. We will share your feedback with our management team. Currently we do not have semi-private spaces for small groups at Sud Forno. If you are looking for something of the sort please consider our restaurant Terroni on Adelaide as they offer various private and semi-private spaces. For a more intimate setting please consider our sister restaurant La Bettola. Thank you and have a nice day.

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!

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.

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.
