I never write reviews - but my experience at this restaurant was so bad I have to mention. We had a reso for 9pm, showed up for 9pm -> the wait staff said it would be 10 minutes. 45 minutes later, we're still standing in the front of the restaurant waiting for a table (along with 4 other parties waiting for their tables). When I approached the staff to ask how long it would be and why they hadn't checked in with us, she was super hostile and not apologetic at all. We walked out, got into the restaurant next door in 2 minutes flat. In the years I've lived in Toronto, this has never happened to me, as most restaurants in the city are super well run. Won't be going back to Taverniti, and I live in the neighbourhood.
Amazing Italian food!!!! Will definitely be back again.
It is a very traditional Italian experience, down to the last detail. The decor, the staff and obviously, the food all reminded me of what it was like sitting at the dinner table growing up. Nonna goes in daily to make the pasta fresh, and it really shows. Some of the best pasta I've had in my life!
Was really good but an enormous amount of fruit flies were around us while we were eating.
Taverniti has the best Calabrese Pizza!! Great food and friendly staff!!
Such a cute place, with phenomenal food and excellent at-home-feeling service. It felt like i was in an italian family's kitchen dining room and it was just great! Would recommend!
The food could have been seasoned better. After being seating took almost half an hour before someone came over and we got to order. Small place.
Was traveling from Chicago and happened upon this restaurant by chance. We had Gnocchi and pizza. Great food with very friendly service. Very small. I suggest a reservation.
I really like the food very tasty and authentic Italian flavour. The only problem is not AC and was very hot inside my friend was affected by the temperature inside the restaurant for that reason we were not available to finished.
Greatest authentic Italian cuisine I have ever eaten at - and I eat out a lot!
Amazing food and value as always!
Pasta sauce tasted like it was out of a can. No care put into food. Just churning it out.
Incredibly hot in the restaurant during the summer months.
Food was great, servers were clearly overwhelmed and not attentive.
Trattoria Taverniti is a gem in Little Italy. The food, service and atmosphere was outstanding. Fresh ingredients, great beer and wine list, and romantic ambiance. I took my wife there to celebrate our anniversary and we both enjoyed the evening and can’t say enough about the hospitality and food.
If you want authentic Italian food in a cozy romantic atmosphere , visit Trattoria Taverniti.
Been here a number of times and we will keep coming back - great food, authentic and friendly. Never disappoints!
Did was excellent and the service was great. Our only issue was the heat. It happened to be a very hot evening and the ventilation was non- existent. Our experience would have been way more enjoyable if there were some fans or even air conditioning!
The service was fast and friendly. The food was amazing and the atmosphere is perfect for a romantic dinner. However you should know they do not have air-conditioning. So if the heat bothers you wait for the weather to cool down
Great restaurant with wonderful food and pleasant service. We happened to be there on a hot summer night and no air conditioning. Otherwise would go back many times in the Fall!
No air conditioning. Food was mediocre at best. Expected more flavour and better quality.
Experience was great. Quick to get food. A little warm in the restaurant since air conditioning wasn’t working.
It was fantastic. This was our first visit. We will be back many more times. Homemade pasta. Everything was amazing. Loved our experience.
Best Italian in Toronto!
Freshly made authentic Italian. Good service, friendly. Def coming back. Molto bene.
Love this restaurant - authentic food, great service and fun ambiance with checkered table cloths and all. It is our go-to in Toronto for a good Italian meal.
The food excellent as always but extremely hot inside the place, a couple of fans would cool down the local.
No air conditioning and the booth are very small, if you are big or tall you shoild take a table.
My friends and I came here for dinner. The food was amazing but it took over an hour to get our food and other people who ordered after us were getting served before us. I had to ask twice on the status of our food. I also had to ask several times for them to bring us the bread. It is a small place and there were only 2 people serving but they were slow and inattentive...they also looked miserable and were not very friendly Also there is no air conditioning and it was a sweat box due to the heat outside. Despite the amazing food, I would be hesitant to return due to the other issues that I mentioned.
Great food, love it!
Place was full, but our reservation was accommodated right on time. Everything, including the Arancini , was excellent and the sauce was among the best I have ever had. Service was excellent and helpful. We will eat there again on our next trip to Toronto.
I liked the food, very cozy atmosphere and staff were very friendly!
Portion was generous as well!
Definitely worth second (and more) visits
Tasty food but very hot inside (super hot July).
Date with family
Too hot in the restaurant to enjoy our food. Turn on the airconditioning.
Dinner with son before 3-week summer camp and it was perfect. Delicious traditional italian food. Mom is really in the back cooking. Some of the best gnocci I've ever had. Thanks for making a mother-son dinner special!
Taverniti never disappoints! We often bring family members who are visiting from abroad to get an authentic Italian meal. My relatives said that their quattro fromaggio was the best pizza they had ever had - and they have traveled to Italy. I also highly recommend their pasta (funghi, alfredo, vodka - they are all good!). Calamari fritti is excellent. My kids love the nutella pizza. The servers are always very friendly and patient with the kids. I love that the owner Mrs. Taverniti always comes around to say hello. The atmosphere is warm and cozy. I highly definitely recommend Taverniti!
Fantastic food and personnel. Lots of veggie options too!
Love Trattoria-you feel like family! The service is warm and friendly. The food is delicious. The restaurant is small and feels inviting. Make reservations; you don’t want to miss this!
My boyfriend and I came to Taverniti to celebrate our anniversary. We were looking to have a traditional Italian home cooked meal and we were not disappointed. I got the Gnocchi Gorgonzola a perfect dish for a cheese lover and the best gnocchi I have ever had by far. My partner got the Spaghetti alla Carbonara which I tasted and also really enjoyed. As an Italian growing up with Italian cooking this place provides traditional Italian dishes with quality ingredients. The entire atmosphere reminded me of home. It seemed as though the whole family was there and at one point a tiny older lady came by and asked us how we were enjoying our meal which I thought was very nice and reminded me of my Nonna. The prices were also really good our bill (pasta dish plus a dessert) averaging to around $65 for both our meals together including tip. I would definitely recommend this place if you’re searching for a classic Italian dining experience. I’m happy to know I have this place around the corner from where I live for when I feel like nonna’s cooking!
Great food; lovely to meet the owner and reminded me of my Nona
service was slow; the servers were running off their feet.
Slow to offer drinks, extra napkins when offered and milk with coffee. Not intentional, simply too busy. Perhaps more servers needed.
