With another large crowd of approx 16-18 it made it very noisy in the restaurant and unable to hear our conversation. Ended our evening early. Service was outstanding and food was very good.

The food wasn't quite like we normally receive at Sauce. Still good, just off a little. Service was very good however and all and all an enjoyable evening.

I am usually a huge fan of Sauce but this time my mom asked for gluten free pasta and they brought her normal pasta. She way sick for days. They also brought her a canoli (sweet touch for her birthday celebration) but she made it clear she was allergic to gluten. Be careful eating here if you have allergies!

Hi Samantha I am very sorry to hear that we were so careless and unaccommodating for your mothers gluten free needs. We take all allergies very seriously and I will definitely look into the evening so I can better assist, train and educate the staff further, on the seriousness of the situation and dietary requirements. My sincerest apologies. Jenna Bazzana

Enjoyed the pizza and pasta. Bread was very dry and waitress took it off the bill.
We miss SAN Remo and Jenna’s place is worth the drive.
Wine Wednesday specials would be great

Found a hair in my lobster risotto and they acted like it was no big deal. Waitress didn’t even come to the table to discuss it with me...she just went ahead and told the kitchen to remake it. I had to order another dish...just couldn’t eat the lobster again!!
They didn’t charge me for the lobster dish but also didn’t offer to comp any part of my meal. I was disappointed but also didn’t want to ruin our night out by making a big deal.

When dining out I will let the server know exactly what the meal is lacking. It is extremely rare to experience a perfect meal and service. This was one of those rare moments.
Thank you for the experience!

Great Italian food
I have gone to Sauce many times for coffee but this was my first time for a meal.
The restaurant was packed at lunch (Friday) so it was very noisy and difficult to have a conversation.
I ordered the veal cannelloni and was not disappointed. It was delicious and the portion was just perfect.
I had the beer special for $5 (Peroni) and it was excellent.
Overall a nice experience.
Dinner is probably better regarding the noise level.

We have visited Sauce on several occasions and this last dining experience was less than satisfactory. The waitress, Holly, was disinterested and did not provide adequate or friendly service. The Arctic Char was dry and over cooked. The tomatoes in the tomatoe salad were bland and underripe. We had to ask twice for cutlery as the table was not set properly.

A great market-restaurant combination! Had lunch with a friend and picked up ingredients for dinner with my husband afterward. Very convenient. I had the delicious Calabrese Salmon Salad and my friend really enjoyed the Chicken and Artichoke Penne. We agreed that the meals were great and made plans to come back and try something else on the menu.
Note: since the C-Train station is nearby, be aware that the 2-hour parking is located on the south side of 17th Avenue.

Sauce was the perfect spot in my neighbourhood to catch up with friends. The Pasta night was well within my budget and the food was excellent. I had a lasagna that literally melted in my mouth! Arriving before 6PM, I was also able to shop at the Deli and pick up some goodies from the bakery. I love one-stop shopping! I am so glad that Sauce is in walking distance from my SW home as I will be going back for future visits!

Asked server to make sure that the pasta dish had sufficient sauce to Not make the pasta dry and sticky, but alas they now want to upcharge another $2 to make sure the pasta is not dry (and they already increased their pasta prices to $14) and all 3 fishes came to the table dry pasta. It’s too bad because it’s easy to add a tiny bit more sauce (lol it’s called The Sauce but it’s a Sauceless pasta) to ensure the dishes are moist (not asking for additional bacon or chicken or peas etc). We stopped going for 5 months because of this issue and returned and for the last 4 months it’s been great, but now they’ve gone back to the Sauceless dishes...hope they realize that this is very short term thinking and not wise when there are so many options of restaurants to go to these days...

Sauce remains one of our favourite spots; for either a fancy sit-down meal or just picking up some delicious grub at the market. Always dependable, and a wonderful place to take visitors.
