We shared lunch here recently while headed to the AGO. Had paninis, one chicken, one prosciutto, with greens - tasty but restaurant needs a little updating. Would visit again if headed that direction.

It was by pure accident that we venture into this area & all the restaurants on this street is just so quaint. The Italian food here was very good & will definitely give it another try if we are in this area.

Went to John's recently and I don't wish to go back. The service was very, very poor. The food took too long to come and it was not special at all. On top of that there was an 18% tip added to the bill...which considering...More

Food there is really good, prices are reasonable and service is friendly, specially the Lebanese origin waitress, she is extremely friendly and very natural. I think she will be the reason to go back there again! Breaded veal is highly recommended.

Baldwin is a pleasant tree lined street with many restaurants of many types. Sitting outside John's was informal and a great way to while away the end of the day. Reasonably priced house wine accompanied good basic food. A self designed pizza was excellent -...More

Have eaten here a few times since August of last year. Sometimes we get great food, but the service is terrible; sometimes the food is okay with okay service; one time the soup was horrible but we got great service. No consistency or reliability.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
