Always a great meal
As usual Avery pleasant dining experience . Our server, Sarah, was excellent. Very attentive.
See you next time.
Wonderful experience. Came on Valentine's Day and they were incredibly accommodating to our needs as we needed to catch a show in an hour. The server, Sarah, was professional and warm. She started our night off well and did an amazing job facilitating our table. Will definitely be coming back!
I have to admit that I was a little skeptical at first seeing some both good and bad reviews of the restaurant, but my wife and I were very pleasantly surprised. We went early on Valentine's day as we had to get to the hockey game. Food was delicious, came out quickly, and our server - wish I knew his name was absolutely fantastic. I ordered pizza, and it was delicious, but after I saw the seafood pasta, I will get it next time...these days most seafood pasts is made with horrible frozen seafood, but the dishes that I saw looked absolutely amazing. We will be back to Badali's very soon !
Delicious, authentic Italian cuisine. Love the gnocchi!! The service is always impeccable. All this at a fair price. We always dine here when we are in town for a game at the ACC.
Often stay in near by hotels and dine here on occasion. Food is solid, service is attentive but not polished (when my on table pepper mill was empty they grabbed one off an other occupied table served me pepper and then returned it, leaving the empty one, when my companion ordered the house white wine we were told bluntly it is terrible and served warm - may be true but felt like a high pressure up sale to a slightly more expensive wine) . Ambiance is on the loud side so if that bothers you take it into consideration. Over all a good spot for a casual dinner. I have also dined there with two gluten free members of my family and there were several good options for them.
Brushetta was a little dry but the chicken ceaser salad was good, I would go again
very nice ambiance, not too loud, service friendly but not over-bearing.
Tried the Winterlicious menu and it was very disappointing. The chicken was dry, the pasta was soggy. The bread was cold (fridge cold).
The food was superb and creative and the service was excellent! Enjoyed the evening immensely and will go again.
The food was very disappointing. We were dining for winterlicous and maybe that affected the quality of the food. The portions were small, the food was bland and the waiter kept trying to push the most expensive wine. For dessert I got the Ricotta Fritters; they need to remove the 's' because it came with one fritter.
Everything was great All the staff very attentive, never an empty glass.
Food was amazing!!! Cannot go wrong coming to The Badali Bar and Cucina!
Server was very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Food was nicely served and very tasty. Fresh bread was declicious. My spouse and I both had dessert, of which, their wasn't a crumb left on the plate. Would certainly return.
The food was unique, flavourable and fantastic. The service was amazing. Their tiramisu is worth going back for.
Winterlicious was amazing.
I'll be back! Really lovely place! Warm, inviting, spacious, lively environment but also allows for really private conversation, great food! Our waiter was very pleasant and present but not hovering which I really appreciate!
The food was great, as was the service... but for Italian fare, it was quite expensive!
Great place for a get together, large variety of menu selections. Well prepared.
The service was impeccable and the place is very nice, but the food did not meet my expectations. I would have expected better taste in a restaurant of this caliber. Not a place I would recommend for the food, but maybe for the convenience and the service.
I have to say that it was rather underwhelming at Toronto prices. Our bill for 4 of us was over $200 but didn't feel that the meals were satisfying. While it's not a bad place, I wouldn't go back just because I know that I can get better Italian food elsewhere for the same price.
We went for dinner. Large Italian menu for selection with 3 additional specials to choose from. After we ordered the assistant server brought the bread, the poured oil & balsamic vinegar into one dish... which we would have preferred to pour our own into our own individual plates... we're not that impressed with sharing. There was a large crowd of what appeared to be an after work quick drink gang. Although they were in the next section of the restaurant they were loud, made it difficult for us to talk at our table. Meals were good, nice presentation a generous size serving. Not much of a dessert selection.
The server was excellent. Unfortunately the meal was marginal and over priced.
The ambiance was nice and the food was good. A bit too much noise for a conversation at our table. Good evening nonetheless.
Went for a drink and a bite before Leafs game. Ambience, beer on tap, service all top notch. Had the rigatoni, a little to al dente for my liking.
Great service and great food. Have been here a number of times and will continue to come here. Our group was going to the hockey game afterwards, and our server ensured we were out on a timely manner.
This is a great restaurant. Recommend if you are looking for a warm, family feel restaurant (that is actually quite large!). Pictures make it seem a bit more "hip" but we still loved the food and our server was very pleasant!
The food and service were excellent, would recommend this restaurant to any of my friends or family.
All the people had heartburn after the meal, and felt sick. Not the tastiest of food. Very disappointed.
The service and food was great, the hostess in particular was very engaging, welcoming and friendly.
