Excellent menu and a pretty good wine list. We've been going to Sarpa since it opened and find that it has maintained the level of service and quality of food all along. I highly recommend it.

My wife and I came here for our first anniversary. The ambience was very sophisticated and creative, with modern Italian music in the background. The waiting staff was super friendly and the food was delicious!

The service was amazing, the food was delicious.
The only thing that stood out for me was that I found it a little expensive for the portion you get.
Also the the drinks were also a little expensive.

Nice cosy restaurant and menu offers what we wish to have . Very limited selection for vegetarians. Creme Brûlée was runny and the tiramisu could be better

Our server was great, she was friendly and always around when we needed her service. Then she leave us to enjoy our dinner. We brought our own wines and wine glasses but she never show any dislike of us being so fuzzy.
Food was perfectly prepared and tasty.
Even thought it was a busy Saturday, it was never too noisy.

Could do better in this price range in that neighborhood. Sarpa has to up its game with the new players in town.

My wife had the Halibut special, and enjoyed it very much. I had the seafood pasta, the best I ever remember having. The family atmosphere both management and guests was to me the mark of a good friendly restaurant.

My experience at Sarpa was wondering, however I was disappointed that the buratta I ordered was only 100grams which works out to a quarter of the size of cheese. The price point on that particular antipasti is a let down.
Other than that, everything else was great, especially the service.

Greeted with attentive staff, fresh oyster bar, vibrant energy. Followed with stellar wine line, the freshest burrata and heavenly homemade pasta. What a great evening. If I had to say anything negative, it would be that the tiramisu was a little light on the espresso and a little heavy on the cream. Five stars! *

Found Sarpa on Open Table while in the Richmond Hill area for business and a weekend vacation. My partner and I love Italian food but many restaurants can be pretty standard and we were looking of something elevated in style, quality and atmosphere. We found it! It was quite busy as it was a Friday night. The manager (who was the host) sat us quickly. Because the wait staff were busy, she didn’t want us to wait so took our drink orders. I had a house SFG Old Fashioned that was sweetened with maple water and spiced with walnut bitters and an orange zest which was smooth and amazing. My partner had Reza’s Angels which was a bright bubbly citrus cocktail which was quite delightful.

There was an enjoyable din of people talking, instrumental music with a great groove and rhythm (a playlist the manager proudly said she made when we mentioned we liked it), the lighting, the intimacy of the tables being close together, but not uncomfortably so, made for a perfect atmosphere for an upscale yet casual dinner in a very popular restaurant.

We ordered a Burrata salad to start which had the most amazing creamy Italian burrata cheese, heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil, white peaches drizzled with balsamic, OO, and pesto (I believe). It first came without the peaches (mistake) but they quickly corrected the order... so we lucked out with two!

The Penne Vodka was very high quality (for a pretty simple dish) with fresh chill slices to give it a bit of heat. The Veal Limone has a silky tart herbed lemon sauce with rapini, and smashed potatoes which were really nice alongside the tender veal.

The serving staff kept a watchful eye on all tables, were pleasant, and engaged delightfully when we struck up conversation. The backing staff were quick and professionally. Was obviously a very tight ship.

This was our one night alone for dinner on a short trip and it turned out to be a great evening at Sarpa! Will definitely visit again if we stay up in the area.

I will try this restaurant again. I did find the service at this price point slightly lacking. Overall, most of our party enjoyed their meals. The host sat us down and took our orders (early on a Sunday evening, only about 5% of their tables were occupied) but we had to remind him that it was a milestone birthday. Given that it was our first visit, and we are regulars at their high-end Terra Restaurant, plus we mentioned the milestone birthday in the OpenTable reservation and again during a visit to the restaurant the day earlier to its managers; the restaurant didn't do anything special or even offer to do anything. Lastly, basic table service could have been a little better (refills, etc.).

We had dinner there on a Sunday. The restaurant was well decorated, but there were only two staff waiting for around 8-10tables. So there was only little service. We had to wait for a long long time for the food. We planned to order dessert but just gave up. Food was decent, but over priced. Overall, not a good experience. Won’t go again, not recommended.

We’ve dined here a number of times. The food and the service is always wonderful. This time we were seated in the bar area and the ambiance there is just not the same. Would have preferred the dining room. Next time I will have to be specific when making the reservation.
