    Tavs is great for an impromptu date or a get together. The staff is always very nice and quick to serve you. What I like best about Tavs is you know exactly what you’re getting, especially if you’re craving a good bowl of gnocchi and maybe a pizza if you’re starving. Overall, a consistent spot that always delivers for us and is affordable especially given Toronto restaurant prices have gone up this year.

    We had the most delicious, fresh and flavourful food. Service was fantastic too…. the little area we sat in at the back of the restaurant was quaint, cosy and private…The menu had lots of choices for everyone. The gnocchi was the best I’ve ever had and melted in your mouth. Will most certainly be back!!

    This is one of the best Italian restaurants - if not, THE best - Italian restaurant I have ever been to in Toronto! You can tell the food is authentic and homemade! Can’t wait to come back to try their other menu items! The staff is very friendly and made us feel like we were eating at nonna’s house! 😁

    Never been was excited to try a new spot dinner was ok typical Italian pizzas need to be cooked more. Nothing stood out really to make me want to pitch this place to another person. Portions on the appetizers were very small for the prices charged. Great staff they need some fine running the place inside was awesome the food spoiled it.

    Last plate came out with a long black hair on top! Waited again for new plate. Asked if our meal was missing truffles and waiter told us NO. Another waitress corrected the problem and added it to plate. When asked if everything was ok we told waiter we wanted another glass of wine.. it never arrived. End of meal asked same waiter for bill waited 15 minutes and asked again. He claimed I never asked him for the bill the whole table hear me ask for it! Waiter was terrible! Happy Anniversary!!

    A fantastic restaurant with a big menu with something to please everyone. The Anthony pizza is one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had. So delicious! The owner of the restaurant, Nonna, often comes out to greet customers and talk about the food and her life. There is a lovely garden patio and the staff are very attentive. Highly recommend!

    Girls' night 'n Gnocchi! Went on a recommendation from several people and they were all right! Delicious Gnocchi, and pizza to share. We all ordered different gnocchi mains, and there are so many to choose from, and all were delicious. Our server was very accommodating to changes for allergies and preferences and went out of his way to make it a thoroughly satisfying dining experience. Haven't found an Italian resto I would rave about in a long time, but here i am raving about Tav! When you gno you gno ;)

    We were not notified our seating would be technically outside, half the heaters were not working, and it was very cold. Service felt rushed, didn’t even have time to finish the apps before mains were brought. The app plates were taken while we were still eating. Bills were delivered unprompted.

    A hidden gem in the heart of Little Italy, an authentic Italian culinary experience. Even though the place is a gnocchi bar, the menu is well curated, with several options and good variety. Food is top notch! The ambience is fun but extremely cozy and service is attentive and professional. Kudos to Nico, the manager, who runs the place like his own, always going above and beyond. I will definitely be back!

    Food was great. They put us on the covered patio which has heaters. However, the patio was uncomfortably cold, especially on the feet. This led to an experience that was not ideal. We did not make a reservation for the patio. I'm a big fan of the place. However, we will not be coming back in the winter based on this experience.
