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.

salads were fresh and very tasty. Service was a bit slow considering our reservation was for 11:30 and we were not served until 12:10, But overall it was a good experience

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.

Our lunch was phenomenal- both my date and I had salads and they were fantastic! The bread and dipping sauce were very tasty too! Our server, Aphrodite, was way above average! All in all, a tasty, memorable lunch! I’ll be back!

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...

The calamari was so small it was laughable. Nice place but no music and the waitress was fine but nothing more. We split the Ragu which was average and a salad which was good.

It has been my goo
To lunch place since it opened. I hope there will be no more price increases for awhile after the most recent one this month.
My only wish, which I have expressed before, is to have my water glass refilled without having to chase my server down. A very long lunch with an old friend yesterday and water glass not refilled in two hours. 😞

An excellent spot. We enjoyed our get together.
It was busy and no doubt more serving staff would have helped.
Service was patchy. Slow to bring meals; and then rushed to bring the bill. Server did not offer dessert or coffee, actually we had to ask for both of these.

But, the food is always delicious and very well priced. This place remains favorite destination for us.

We prefer booths but those funky shapes don’t work well conversationally for 4.
Otherwise always a nice experience.

We went to the restaurant for my spouse's birthday. Fortunately, we were able to go early because the restaurant became increasingly busy while we were there. We discovered to our pleasure that a bottle of wine was half price on that evening. I usually only drink Riesling but the restaurant offered a very pleasant Italian Pinot Grigio. The service was friendly and efficient even though it appeared there were only two wait staff at the time. Our food was very good and hubby received a free cannoli with sparkler to mark the occasion. We will be back - especially for the pasta special evenings and we will make a reservation.

Overall it was very good - however my Mom had the Lobster risotto - which was tasteless and because its warm risotto with cold lobster salad - it brings the overall temperature of the dish to a gross lukewarm.
Really strange meal.

But I had the short rib - which was excellent! And we come for your pasta nights - and it is SOOO worth it!
