Via Allegro serves as Toronto’s landmark restaurant location thanks to its classic dishes and equally warm, classy interior. The upscale eatery affords diners plenty of Italian flair in both atmosphere and flavor. Via Allegro spares no expense to provide diners with bold Italian motifs combined with the innovation of modern design.

Winner of the wine spectator, Grand Award, one of ninety seven in the entire world.

For classic pasta and risotto dishes, check out the golden spoon risotto, risotto del squid, pheasant cavatelli and the del nord tortellini. For a more classically inspired entrée, you will enjoy the ecstasea grill, seafood classico linguine, whole fresh fish branzino or the venison rack. Make sure you also try out the Tuscan roasted rabbit, which happens to be a favorite among dinners at Via Allegro.

    there was nothing generally wrong, don't misunderstand. it was my first return here after Covid. however, the ceasar salad was small, compared to many, many previous visits. the Food has certainly increased in price and the flavors were nice. i didn't walk out going this was amazing, but neither was i disappointed. i'd visit again and i'm back there for lunch in a couple weeks. but its no where near a "i must go here to eat restaurant" right now.

    Absolutely wonderful. Finding the words to describe how great of an experience this was is impossible! Went out for a nice dinner with my girlfriend. By far the best service we have received. The staff was very attentive, extremely helpful, and very polite. Both our meals were wonderful as well. Beautifully done. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a nice dinner experience.

    Disappointing, not like before. Filet was sooooo dry, I had to drink to get it down. If it was 6 oz. as shown on the menu, it shrunk to no more than 4 oz. when cooked. Funghi Crostata was so salty I couldn't eat it, and I like salt. Fish was good. Rabbit Pappardelle was excellent as was the Barbie Doll-sized portion of the Strawberry Panacotta. Service was good. Noise level was high. Overall value was not great. Via Allegro has been a favorite for years, but I'm not sure we'll return. I would recommend to a friend, but would qualify the recommendation.

    Felt some awkwardness/uneasiness from our server the whole time; friendly and business like but not warm. Not sure if it’s because we were an eclectic group or what the deal was. We were given a very nice and private table which was much appreciated. The best dish was the special of the day fish dish. Pizza and pasta dish we ordered were too salty. We weren’t experienced with Italian food and without any guidance maybe we just picked wrong combination. Given the price, you really mainly paid for the ambiance.

    If you are looking a fantastic Italian restaurant with authenticity, this is the place. An amazing wine list, single malt scotch selection, and an array of delicious Italian cuisine. They even have a wood-burning oven for their traditional pizzas, which were also delicious. All staff was welcoming and knowledgeable, with a great ambiance that will surely please newcomers and returning connoisseurs. It was a great experience and look forward to visiting again!

    As I expected, the restaurant met all expectations. The wine list is extensive, and the menu had lots of variation. However, the richness of the item my wife chose (truffled mushroom risotto) caused her to have a lot of stomach pain late into the evening, and even today. That said, she has a very narrow spectrum of food that she can enjoy. The ambience was great, and my wife commented that she enjoyed the music (not too loud so you could have a conversation). In all, a great evening, with one slight downside. As a comment, I asked for and received a menu without prices, but unfortunately it was not available when we arrived. I think, with the exception of the host at the table, all guests should not have prices on their menus. They should make their decision based on the food they want to eat, and not the price list!

    A pretty restaurant with very good food. Unfortunately, something was very wrong with the service on our first visit tonight, but since they have been open for 27 years I assume this is not typical. We were seated for over half an hour before getting menus and a wine list and different servers would appear and repeat what had already been discussed. Food and drink took way too long to arrive, ordered items were forgotten, and wine glasses were not topped up without asking. When 2 separate Managers asked about our experience we were candid with our feedback and they responded well. We were given complimentary dessert and a gift card for use on a future visit. We will go back to see if the service can match the food on a good night.

    We were blown away by the amazing service, attentive and friendly staff and delicious food! The pasta was made in-house after you order and it was unbelievable. We were the only ones on the beautiful patio but it was such an enjoyable experience! The ambiance and temperature out there was great and we were very well looked after. The chef came out a few times to chat with us and offer us his special pasta dish. The manager was very kind as well as he visited our table a couple of times. We were recommended this restaurant by a couple people but didn’t know what to expect, and turned out extremely pleased with our experience! We will be telling our friends and coming back for sure!!
