A first time visit with friends showed us why others rave about Tonelli's. A great European atmosphere, with food to match, much of it locally sourced. The Panini's were so good, as was the daily soup. They certainly know how to make a Latte and the taste of a friend's lemon tart was that lemony pucker you remember from France.... More

We ventured in here last weekend for the first time. It was packed, so it is obviously popular. We got the last available table even though we were there after 1:00 pm when we expected it to be a little less busy. We ordered the Panini and soup sets – a Toscano Panini and a Vienna Panini. Both came with... More

I cycle with a group of my male 60ish pals, and most of us are foodies. We have a weekly ride and have gone to dozens of lunch spots in the Greater Victoria region. Most spots have impressed us- we're picky and do our research so we are seldom let down by an unexpected lunch experience. We collectively rate Tonelli's... More

I've been a loyal customer since they opened. Their breads and pastries get better all the time after Susans husband did some extra training in Germany. Very good coffee and breakfasts. Lots of gluten free items and the german apple cake is delicious!

The quality of the product is usually good and taste delicious. However I had a hair in my sandwich once and wasn't impressed... who would?. Beside that I think the prices are just a bit too high as I would go back more often otherwise. As for the customer service there is definitely room for improvement. Nice Christmas light though!

We had breakfast and everything was very fresh and delicious. The smell of the baking was heavenly and the prices very reasonable. I liked the room a lot - homey with lots of character.

I went into Tonelli's mid afternoon to pick up a few pastries after hearing a few decent reviews from friends. After standing at the till with 3 employees behind the counter and in the kitchen area for almost 5 minutes without even an acknowledgment that I was there, I walked out with nothing. I can understand this happening at a... More

The correct name of this little place is Tonolli's Deli. It is a Mediterranean deli with fresh, local products and a casual ambiance (a few tables inside and several on a patio). You order at the counter and staff brings it to your table. The paninis are delicious. Try the one with brie, walnuts and pear slices. Lots of homemade... More

This little deli is a great place for some delicious food cooked with passion and care. The owners have taken care to select high quality local and mostly organic foods, the coffee is fair-trade from local supplier Level Ground. The breakfast I had (twice so far!) was the best breakfast I've ever had out: coddled free range eggs cooked with... More

Sandwiches are made with artisan breads, daily soups homemade. Very pleasant staff. Reasonable prices and good selection. Waffles are WOW on weekends.
