I went here with my boyfriend and his family last month and we all adored our meals. The pasta and pizza is delicious, we were all raving about our meals. The patio atmosphere was good, but not too quiet with the traffic. I'd recommend it for couples, and sitting inside for a more romantic atmosphere.

Whenever my wife and I want a great night out, with great food and service, we come here. While I can't seem to get beyond eating the gnocchi with gorgonzola and walnuts, and my wife always seems to order the oceana, we are always very happy each time we do. The staff are just awesome and always make us feel... More

Caffè Mio is a small but warm-hearted Italian restaurant. The meals are always excellent and a recent visit with my wife and parents for a birthday celebration was no exception. Special thanks to our server - he was outstanding and could not have been more helpful or engaging. Thank you!

This is a little gem in Westboro. It is small and cozy. Service is excellent and the food very good. Well priced. A nice wine selection. We will be back for sure and recommend it to anyone who wants very good food in a very nice setting

I have eaten here at least 3 times now, and never had an issue with obtaining a gluten free meal. Service is always good. It just seems to be the right choice for a quiet meal to catch up with friends. Food is fresh and excellent, wine list is good. Make reservations if dining with a crowd though (i.e. more... More

Reserved dinner for 4. Bizzarely unhelpful waitress, and spectacularly flamboyant waiter who between them managed to provide underwhelming service. Caesar salad was acceptable, but The pizza special of the evening was bland, big on quantity and short on taste. Wife had pasta special that was nothing but an orange reddish mass with little distinguishing feature. Friends from Calgary summed up... More

I have had better pizza so I was disappointed. My husband and our friend had the special beef tenderloin which was over cooked. Drinks watered down. Overall experience was so so. I don't like going to a restaurant where I can cook the food better. The only positive was the sweet potato and squash soup, it was very good. Not... More

This is one of my lunch favorites. The food is excellent. I particularly like the pollo salad and there is usually an interesting special or two. The menu is not extensive but there is enough variety and what they do they do very well. It is a small cosy place with good service. Best of all, unlike many places, they... More
