The food was superb! Unfortunately the kitchen was backed up so the service was very, very slow.

Ordered a fetuccine Alfredo pasta; it was overpriced, a small portion and bland. The restaurant seemed understaffed and the service was poor and slow. Will not be returning.

This is our favourite Italian food in the city! It is authentic, fresh, and delicious. The restaurant is family run and this shines through in the service. You will not be disappointed!

Food and drink was wonderful. Eating on the patio under the umbrella was nice and lots of pretty lighting along College Street. Tables were well spaced. Service was slow and sporadic, our wait staff seemed to have a disproportionate number of tables.

The food was wonderful! We started with some meatballs and bread. Main courses lasagna and chicken parmesan. Both were excellent. The table were outside on a platform between the sidewalk and street. It was evening and could have used a little creative lighting. Also some fans to provide air movement. Other than that I was extremely pleased. I will definitely visit again the next time I'm in Toronto. The pomodoro fantastic!

We make our own pasta and cook with fresh ingredients so we can be tough to please when it comes to Italian fare but you won’t be disappointed at Traverniti. The food is fantastic and service excellent. A no frills, great value establishment that we plan to visit again!!!

We had a small Birthday gathering with 5!! Kids. All of us were so happy with the place and service. The food is delicious, drinks, and awesome deserts.

Thank you, Donna Taverniti, we are definitely coming back 😉.

Best Italian restaurant in Toronto. Very casual and relaxed vibe - gives you that homely feeling overall in terms of setting, service and food. Appetizers, pasta, bread and wine was excellent, and the pizza was the best in town.

I highly recommend this place and will certainly return.

Customer service was amazing. The staff went above and beyond to make sure I had a good experience.

I ordered the classic bruschette and the penne Rosa. Both good dishes with lots of flavours.

If you looking for a real Italian restaurant , please try this one out!

Food and service was great! The mushroom and truffle tagliatelle was amazing!! Would definitely order that again. The patio is on college street, covered from any rain, and feels cozy and charming because it’s in the heart of little Italy.

Trattoria Taverniti never disappoints. If you’re looking for authentic Italian cuisine, this is the place! All the pasta is homemade (thanks to Nonna Rosina) and the wait staff take such good care of you. Truly a warm, welcoming, familiar (especially if you’re Italian) experience to dine here. I always recommend!
