I took my boyfriend, and a couple visiting from New York to Sotto Voce, for a couples evening out. Everyone had a fantastic time, and thought Anita was an incredibly gracious hostess. They all loved the food and the wine, plus the general vibe of the restaurant.
This was easily the best meal we've had in over a year, and it was flawless. The other couple are traditional Italians from NYC, and said nothing there could hold a candle to this wine bar.
Every time I bring people here they think I live like a rock star :)
A small, intimate place that was cozy and buzzing with conversation. Anita and her staff were welcoming and helpful. Service was attentive without being intrusive. The meal was excellent as was the wine.
Terrible service. OK food.
Not too expensive but you get what you pay for.
Servers were very friendly and the food arrived very quickly.
Salad and pasta were on point as was the service. The artichoke appy was too greasy.
Great service and food; we shared the rather tiny restaurant with a birthday party group but since our group of 8 was rather energetic the overall atmosphere was perfect ; everyone enjoyed the food and the service was very attentive and responsive; would definitely return again
Wonderful place for excellent food, drinks, and a warm and inviting atmosphere. Anita, the owner is always friendly and welcoming. The small dining room lends itself to intimate occasions for a couple or for small group of friends.
Food and vibe were was great, but seated next to the door we often felt cold drafts with every coming and going. It can’t be helped, but try not to get seated by the door on a freezing night.
Great.....As Always! I have been going to this restaurant for years despite having moved out of downtown Toronto into the Suburbs. It is worth the drive.
fantastic food and service! We really enjoyed our meals!
Food was very good. Service spotty. The real negative was the noise level. Music blaring from speakers.
Simple ingredients cooked to perfection. Great atmosphere. Amazing service. The best restaurant on College West.
Love this place! Best corner to people watch. We sat outside on the most comfortable couches with our own fire pit. Had a delicious soup followed by the yummiest Sicilian meatballs I have ever tasted, moist and juicy in the tastiest marinara sauce. Will definitely be back .. Winter and Summer 👍
Had an amazing dinner at Sotto Vice tonight!
The ambience, the service and the food was awesome. I had the crostini to start and it was delish, such a tasty medley of flavors with the prosciutto, fig and goats cheese. My main was the Dal Mare pasta and it was perfectly al dente and delicious! The staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable with wine recommendations. Would highly recommend! Thanks for a great evening!
I am a chef from Scotland and I specialize in soups so it was a lovely change to experience really authentic Italian cuisine in very warm and enjoyable atmosphere. The staff were engaging and knew their stuff and went to great lengths to explain all the various menu options as well as a solid knowledge of ingredients. The gaffer of the place (Anita) was the ultimate host, charming lovely woman. The wines were superb. All in all one of the culinary highlights of my visit to Toronto. I can't wait to go back the next time I visit.
We ended up there because all the other restaurants we tried getting a reservation at were full. I wouldn't go back... but it's not an awful place either. It's just not what I was expecting food wise.
One of our waitresses was alright the other one was very ordinary. They both couldn't answer all of the questions we had regarding the wines, the ingredients in the food, etc. The food was fine. Nothing exceptional but alright I guess. I wouldn't call it traditional Italian food though. The meat balls were too sweet to my liking. I had the lamb. It was fine. 3 people at my table ordered the seafood pasta and they liked it. We shared some crostini. It was just okay. We also shared the burrata was great I must say. The texture was perfect, the taste was amazing.
I love it here. Such a good vibe. Excellent staff. Excellent food. A regular spot for me and friends :-)
Great food great value, cute Italian spot
Great appetizers or wine and snacks. Haven't tried the mains yet.
Anita and her staff were amazing!!!
The food was superb and we had the best time!!!
We definitely made forever friends at Sotto Voce!!!
This local spot celebrating 18 years was a great location to meet some friends for a summer dinner on the patio. The food choices offered a reasonable menu with variety although portions are quite small.
We later learned this is more of a wine bar than a restaurant however I feel it is a winner and would return. Notable are Pasta and wine at a flat rate of $ 25 on Mon during the summer. Great deal for a casual business meet up or girls night out !
Delicious pasta and great service in a fun, cozy atmosphere!
Sotto Voce never fails to please. Anita, the indomitable owner and hostess with the mostess is consistently as fabulous as the food and wine Sotto Voce has to offer. She and her staff, especially Jasmine, make everyone feel like a VIP! But the food...oh the food...
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Sotto Voce. Didn't get the name of our fabulous server (in an equally fabulous floral suit!), but she did the restaurant proud. Wonderful personality and knowledge of the menu, she made perfect suggestions to adapt to our various dietary requests.
We will be back!
we hit the 1/2 price wine night which was fantastic as we were able to order a more expensive bottle and pay 50% in fact we had 2 bottles my friend and I. Patricia was lovely and very attentive, not overbearing the fellow was also super good. There is limited kitchen space and I think they do a bang up job of the food with an interesting and unique presentation to the dishes, and v ery tasty. College Street in that strip is a changing and I'm really happy that Soto Voce seems to be doing well and staying true to its Italian roots. its a great neighbourhood place and I look forward to my next visit there
One of my favourite go-restaurants on College street. The food is delicious (best meatballs ever) and the service is always excellent. I enjoy the patio when I can get a seat.
This is the forth time we've been there within one and half month and the second time we bring our friends there, really good service and the owner is very nice, it's worth to try . Thanks Anita , Lauren and jasmine, don't know if I spell right
A wonderful quaint spot to enjoy some authentic Italian cuisine! Our hostess/owner/server Anita made us feel like we were dining in her home. Food was exceptional but the staff and ambiance made us feel relaxed and at ease. Our special requests were honored and taken in stride. I can't recommend this special restaurant enough!
We showed up for our reservation at 7pm. We were told that there was a table who had arrived late for their reservation and were just finishing up. We were seated at the bar, and we waited for twenty minutes - no tables showed any sign of finishing up - before we left and went to another restaurant. There was another party who came in after us, who were in the same situation (had a reservation but still had to wait) and they left as well. NOT IMPRESSED
This is the one that my husband and me would like to stay and introduce to our family and friends
Consistently stellar food and service. Every dish I've tried so far has been well thought out and executed with rich combinations of complementary flavours.
Amazing food and amazing service!
We love this place! Great food and really amazing service.
Would highly recommend it.
Quaint, cozy, and friendly atmosphere. Authentic Italian food, and wonderful service.
It was an enjoyable night in an intimate restaurant. All four of us enjoyed the meals.
Great authentic Italian food and wine. Nice vibe and calm atmosphere. Excellent service.
Great food, service and ambiance. Celebrated a special occasion and received a glass of bubbly on the house which was a nice gesture. Only downside was open kitchen ventilation is not great, leaving clothes and jackets smelly, otherwise a winner.
Great friendly service and great food
Great food, service and ambiance!
