A good Italian restaurant in the West End

I have eaten here twice with my wife for dinner and both times the food and service was excellent. To me a good test of a 'real' Italian restaurant is their meatballs and the ones served at Go Italian are tender and delicious. The pasta (spaghetti) was very good and of homemade quality (I should... read more

We've heard a lot of good things about Go Italian so we decided to give it a chance and I'm glad we did. I ordered the Vodka Penne and my wife ordered the Fettuccine Alfredo. The portions are larger than expected and were delicious. My wife said that the Fettuccine Alfredo was one of the best she's every had which... More

No surprises here. It's what one expected from an Italian joint in 1965. Acidic tomato sauce used in abundance. Decent pizza.

This is by far my favourite restaurant. I started eating here about 7 months after they opened. I loved it. I came here with my family a couple times- it started becoming our go-to place. I am such a foodie and everything here is delicious. Not once have I had a bad meal and I've had countless meals here. The... More

While I've heard people say the food at go Italian is good...I've had takeout a few times and been extremely unsatisfied! The food is always bland and backs any originality. To anyone who appreciates food, and considers the self a foodie- steer clear!

One of my most favourite foods in the world (I have travelled Italy quite a bit), and after looking for an Italian restaurant in Kingston, and trying another, I decided to try this one based on a local friends recommendation. The food was fabulous, the staff were excellent, and the bill was right where I expected it to be. I... More

By God, who ever said this was a good restaurant, was out of there mind. Don't go, not only was the food terrible, but simply way over-priced. But, it felt that it was pre-packed & just warmed up. Desserts are over priced & bought off site. Saying anything is homemade is farfetched, maybe the pizza. My advice is to drive... More

Nice little place to have a quiet dinner. Licensed and have a good selection of wines. Meals are Pasta based and very good. Wait staff are good. Limited seating but makes for a more cozy atmosphere.

My wife and I shared a dinner here 1/12/14 and were really impressed. We had not heard anything about this little gem before and were both craving pasta. The dinning room is small and cozy. The service we received was also excellent. Considering what a plate of pasta with sauce out of a bag at East Sides costs, this was... More
