We dined at Cafe Diplomatico on a suggestion which we now regret taking. Once we walked in We felt like we were in a pizza parlor, not an authentic Italian restaraunt. The chicken parm was average and the side of grilled shrimp were small, unseasoned and cold (not right off the grill as grilled shrimp should be). The Pasta Alla... More

I remember coming down to Little Italy in University and Cafe Diplomatico was always a popular spot. Especially during World Cup soccer season. The deserts were good. I had not been in about 15 years but recently was in the area with a friend and he insisted I try the Tiramisu. It is easily the best I have ever had.... More

I havent been back to Toronto in several years, so when thinking where to catch up with friends, I had 2 restaurants in mind. Diplomatico was definitely one of them. Its a very simple place, super in the summer or on a warm day to sit on the patio and watch College St walk by. On my recent visit it... More

Ate here with a work colleague on a trip over from the UK. Good food informal atmosphere. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Value for money excellent.

We were on vacation with another couple and decided to stop here for dinner. Two of us had the chicken parmesan and it was overcooked and dry, sauce tasted like it was out of a jar. Our spouses had the lasagna and said it was the worst they've ever had. The service was poor. Our waitress was scarce, we had... More

First time eating at this restaurant. We enjoyed drinks and a meal on the patio. Had the mussels in tomatoe sauce.....best ever. The pasta was good not over the top. But was tasty and fresh. The service was great and very friendly. Only downfall was the group smoking at their table beside us...this was very disappointing.

I will be honest and say I have not tried the food here. I went to watch a Soccer game here and the place was packed, which was expected. However the staff and management were very organised and although I know it was busy they really did not handle the people or situation well. I actually watched a manager argue... More
