I had never ordered the pizza before, so I tried Quattro Stagioni. I was not super impressed. The presentation was beautiful, but I don’t really like eating my toppings separately from each other. It was only cut into four pieces, and it was difficult to cut. Poor knife? The Hot Sicilian pasta was apparently very delicious, and the meatballs she added to her order were good, but she wouldn’t necessarily rush back to order them again. As ever, the service was great...and it was our server’s first day! I continue to choose Sauce when lunching with friends.

My friends and I enjoyed the tasty Linguini Boscailola "mushroom lovers";although, for my taste, there was a bit too much oil on the pasta. I was pleasantly surprised to be able to substitute the regular pasta for corn pasta, at no extra charge. The desserts are always decadent here and the vanilla bean panna cotta and Italian Wedding tartufo were no exception.

It was busy, but our server was attentive and the food came out hot a fresh. My wife had the clams diablo linguine, which she loved, and I had the cannelloni, which was perfect. The kids meals looked great too. This was our first visit and we will definitely be going back.

Good afternoon
Thank the meal was good but we were not taken care of.
Wrong meal delivered at first by our own sever.
Then ours came after , the pasta was good.
No follow up from server , no water refill or coffee.
Did get the other sever attention and she refilled our coffee.
Had to wait and wait for the bill , again flagged the sever down. The restaurant was not that busy so this is why the poor review. Thank you.

We enjoyed our dinner but the service wasn’t quite as fantastic as I usually find it to be. And the food was good but again, not amazing. It was a very busy night for them. Maybe it was just too much. Will go back again though for sure.

I love Sauce - they have an amazing pasta menu and great gluten free options. Good wine and a great ambiance in the restaurant. The other night my friend and I had a reservation but something came up so we attempted to get in for an earlier table. That wasnt possible, but the staff set us up and served us in the cafe instead. So unexpected and amazingly accommodating. Love this place - it’s worth the visit.

The reason to give 1 star is because during our dinner an accident happened with one of the servers.
Emailed management but never got back to me.
If you want a relaxing and quiet evening then this is not the right place for you, very noisy.

Food was very tasty although the portion during this visit visit seemed smaller than usual. I go there often. Unfortunately this time, there was a large group that was extremely noisy and my friends and I could barely hear each other. The server was extremely pleasant and helpful

We have been raving about and taking our friends to Sauce for awhile now. Have always enjoyed our dining out with friends........ until Friday evening.
Our table was right next to a very large group (one of two large parties). It was so noisy that we had trouble hearing each other talk.
The menu has been made much smaller, which was a huge disappointment, as my favourites were not included. I ordered a pasta dish. It appeared that they put in left over shredded pulled beef from one of their other dishes and threw in some tomato sauce. My dish was not hot and normally I would have sent it back, but I didn't want to make a fuss in front of our friends. Not one person commented on the food, which was quite unusual.
It will be interesting to see what this Wednesday brings, as we are dining there once more with friends. Hoping that my next review will be more favourable.

Menu has changed somewhat. That’s always good - they’re not stagnant.
The new Bruschette Quattro is delicious, but way too pricey at $15 for four little toasted baguette slices with (admittedly) delicious toppings - works out to $3.75 each!
This attractive restaurant became popular partly because the prices were not obscenely high and the food was good. I hope they don’t get carried away.
Also...they apparently have stopped giving a birthday patron a cannoli treat...certainly our lunch celebrating four birthdays (three of them milestones!) did not trigger a complimentary dessert of any kind.

Very nice environment ...casual but a step up from the usual .limited menu primarily based on pasta entrees but they are all very good. Fun little coffee shop/ deli/ bakery as you enter and restaurant is in the rear. Excellent value on $12 pasta days. Very pleasant staff.

This place is pretty decent. Nicest bathrooms in the city. Food is good. Mains decently executed. Portions generous. Appetizer plate was ho-hum. Tiramisu was excellent. Decent wine list. Competent service. Could have done without the TV’s but I get the bar/restaurant combo.

With the exception of the Tiramisu "cake", the meal was very good. The timing of the dishes was a bit off. A different server brought on the main courses before we finished our appetizers. Perhaps, this was done to accommodate a very large group that was there as well. We (2) were seated next to this group and had people around our table throughout the dinner. The restaurant could have a better seating plan so that the larger group did not overflow over to other diners.

food was good - well paced good quality - we were there on a Monday which was half priced pasta - which was a nice surprise - the portions were worth the half price 12 - I think if I paid 24 I would have been very disappointed - family style is much larger - they closed the kitchen at 9pm and didn't tell us so we were unable to order dessert or coffee - our spend would have been much higher given the opportunity .
