    Had such a good experience at Gia! The service was so good and the food was amazing. We had the meatballs, risotto, and the agnolotti. Everything we tried was great! Make sure to make a reservation! They were booked and couldn’t accept walk-ins when we went on a Saturday night.

The mushroom agnolotti was incredible and the baby gem salad omg! Desert was a vegan tiramisu!!! Yeeees, so amazing. The place was packed and full of fun energy. Service was impeccable. Always staff hovering to help. We will be back for sure!

    I brought my mom for her birthday. She’s vegetarian and was pleased that she could order something that wasn’t a salad or pasta. Never thought I’d see her so happy to order some meatballs . Anyways, we had a lovely time. Food was tasty.

    My partner and I decided to come here for our anniversary and were not disappointed. The food was absolutely incredible - we were able to book in during the Aperitivo Hour which honestly was the best start. Some deeply discounted apps including the meatballs (incredible), a delicious burrata with in-season tomatoes and berries, and more. As the evening transitioned into the regular menu, my partner and I each ordered a pasta dish, and wow. We couldn't decide whose was better, which I think is the sign of a good meal. Our only grip with the visit was the service was very hands-off. But each time they did visit: they were super great. 10/10, would come back.

    We have gone to Gia before and have always loved it! To our surprise in our most recent visit half of the menu items were no longer available. Although the food was still delicious, it was quite disappointing the lack of variety. Our server did let us know that they anticipated that a lot more items are likely to be added in the upcoming weeks.

    This is a wonderful spot for vegan and vegetarian eaters. I will definitely be returning to Gia soon. There was a bit of delay between serving courses and this could be improved; for example we were served with one appetizer and waited for quite some time - then one main course was served - 5 minutes later the second main course - and in the end the second appetizer. This was a bit off and usually people at the same table are expected to be served at the same time. Grilled radicchio; focaccia; pappardelle Bolognese; porcini, baby gem salad and chocolate cake all wonderful and highly recommended.

    Food was great. I could go vegan FT after eating there. Our waitress was fabulous. Some of the other team members a bit confused on the simple stuff. I never like being told a resto needs the table back by a certain time when being seated. Not a welcoming message and something GIA ownership should abandon. Deal with the people who are issues, not the people trying to support your business.

    Gia is an Outstanding Culinary experience. We have been eating vegetarian/vegan for at least 20yrs. Everything was Perfect. From our delightful Table Advisor to the Portion, Presentation, Taste, and Texture of each dish, there wasn’t anything that we could have asked for. Fantastic establishment! Will visit more often.

    I expected every item on the menu to be vegan but many were just vegetarian. The endive mushroom dish was the best we had. The cashew Brie was super tasty interesting and creative. It was a little pricey, a nice experience but I’m not sure I’d go back.

    While the space is beautiful and my previous time there was great, the service and food was not at the same level. Despite ordering our cocktails 10 min before we ordered apps, our food came before the cocktails arrived. The food was not as flavourful or good as it was the year before.

    I thought the food was if very poor quality and way too expensive. It was very bland - the noodles had a very poor consistency and one of our mains was almost inedible. For well over $100 per person it was a very disappointing experience.

    I have been dying to go to Gia since it opened and I am so happy we were able to go! The food was amazing, I have never had vegetarian food taste so good! You have to get the zucchini blossoms. The olive oil cake was also incredible. The service was amazing and everyone was very friendly. We also tried a few of their cocktails and they were perfect. We were seated at the very front table in the window and we could have not asked for a better spot it was such a lovely night! Thank you Gia!

We had yummy focaccia, fresh tasting burrata with heirloom tomato and Ontario berries, patty pan zucchini with mint salsa and bay leaf aioli & lemon, crispy zucchini blossom with lemon, ricotta and smoked honey & thyme, pappardelle with peas, lemon, mint & pumpkin seed pest, and the star of the show (although everything tasted amazing) porcini agnolotti with porcini, wild mushroom, butter & Oro Nero. Definitely need to go back and try the things we didn’t order lol
