Had lunch here with a friend. I had no expectations so I can say this place is acceptable to good. Lovely room, lots of brick, white table cloths, tables nicely spaced. I lije when wine figures prominently in the decor. We were seated promptly by a pleasant hostess. Before we had time to scan the menu, water arrived along with... More

Attended with a group of seven and each of us enjoyed our meals. Service was a little spotty but overall acceptable. Had the short rib risotto. Very hearty and delicious. My wife had the Cornish Hen, large portion but slight over cooked wine list was extensive but several items I inquired about were not available.

I planned a surprise outing for a show that evening at Sony Centre. I was looking for a restaurant close by that was quiet but had delicious fare. Found this restaurant online and had a great time that evening which was perfect for our pre show dinner. The reservation was easy to make online. The restaurant interior is warm and... More

I have lived nearby this restaurant for years and finally tried it. My loss, should not have waited so long. My dinner was equal to the best that I had on a recent visit to Italy. The menu covers all the basics from salad to dessert. Table service starts with a basket of fresh warm bread, excellent olives and of... More

Nice ambiance, friendly and helpful service, pretty good food with lazy, unattractive plating. The scallop appetizer was properly cooked but was simply two scallops swimming in sauce in a little fry pan. The beef Carpaccio was a very nice looking and flavourful plate. The mains were all a la carte, just the meat in the middle of the plate, in... More

The service, food and decor was all great. The only thing was the butternut squash ravioli, it was delicious but there were maybe only 5 pieces in my plate. I would have ordered a side had I known. Hence the 4 stars

This place is the master of "Bait and Switch". 1. On-line menu describes 45 day Dry Aged Rig Eye. Restaurant menu has basic rib eye. My wife ordered it Medium. It was all of 3/8" thick. Like you would get with a breakfast steak and eggs. It was way too over done. You can't cook a thin steak to a... More

Attended a corporate dinner here tonight and we all had a good time. Our food was good, with the exception of the Veal which seemed a little bland and like the breadcrumbs were off. However the other dishes like my Seafood Tagliarte Pasta was excellent, well seasoned, al dente, with delicious creme and San Marizano Napoli Tomato Sauce. The highlight... More

Went in on a Friday after 7. Not very busy should have been the first clue. Ate in this same restaurant in the spring 2015 and the food was excellent. We are from outside Toronto. Decided to frequent this restaurant again and sadly will not be back. We had the pan steak - it had no flavour, over cooked and... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
