The food was delicious and the service was terrific - especially considering they were short handed that night.
Nothing was as advertised. We went because of the price fixed menu listed on open table. When we got there we learned the price fixed menu we looked at did not exist, and the staff did not offer to honour what was posted. Additionally, every dish we wanted to order was sold out or missing key ingredients. Noise level was good as we were the only diners in the restaurant.
This restaurant continues to serve great food and fabulous wines at a decent price! Always love it!
The Big Ragu was easy to find, there are lots of street parking near by. There is also a bus terminal, so getting there was Easy.
The food was amazing, we had the salmon, and it was the best I have had, cooked perfectly.
It was a quiet night we were there, the server was very attentive and the ambience was just right. Anyone interest in Italian food should give it a try!
The food and service is always AMAZING and NEVER disappoints!
We selected the Big Ragu based upon reviews on Open Table. It is a quiet little place on the corner of Lansdowne. We went to meet another couple for a birthday celebration. From the beginning we were met by very attentive and friendly service. The food was amazing and the Chef came out to make sure we enjoyed our dinner. We were loud and stayed well past anyone else. No one hurried us or asked us to leave. This is one of those wonderful neighbourhood restaurants that I truly hope people frequent. Such kindness and quality. Fresh homemade food. Go!
Big Ragu has an easy going atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and the menu suggestions were great.
Good neighborhood restaurant.
This was a family get together/birthday, with grandparents, parents, and grandchildren, so the atmosphere and service had to accommodate a wide range, as did the food/drink options, - ranging from carnivorous to vegan! Everything fell into place perfectly, - the kids felt free (no, not noisy!), the service was great, and the staff had exactly the right measure friendliness.
We would definitely recommend!
Been there a couple of times. Nice prices. Fine food. Great for getting the daily special.
My plate was very good however my partner had issues on hers. The meat was hard to chew and there was ingredients missing. She did not want to complain and got frustrated. It was a bit overpriced as well. Other than that is a very good restaurant.
Best Italian food in Toronto and terrific service. Love going there. The pasta is excellent. I wish it was at the top of my street
Some of the best pastaI've tasted, together with the lovely homey ambience and personal service makes this a top 10!
Pasta especially gnocchi and ravioli are excellent at this restaurant. The owner chef makes them himself and they are delicious. The decor still in place from the previous owner is well... a bit odd and could use an update. The service was excellent and attentive. We will go back and enjoy the pasta another time!
LOVE this place. You immediately feel at home here. Food & wine & atmosphere are perfect for dining with good friends and famlly.
