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.

Really looked foward to eating here but was sadly left disappointed. Went for lunch with my partner Service was terrible, wasn't acknowledged for 15 mins and even then I had to ask waiter to look after us. I ordered seafood linguini with white wine sauce but it came out with tomato sauce explained to waiter but couldnt care less. Id... More

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

Cafe Dip is a great hang for Torontonians with cheap eats and underwhelming coffee. I've eaten here twice and both times I found myself wishing I had tried another establishment. The food simply isn't fresh nor well-prepared. I've had the chicken parmesan: It was greasy, the breading skinned off in an unappetizing mess, and the pasta was overcooked. One would... More

My husband and I visited during Taste of Italy. Loved the atmosphere, reminded us of eating al fresco in Rome and the service staff were great but the food, not so much. We had antipasto misto which was the worst we've ever had and the pizza is not authentic wood burning, but we did enjoy the cannoli and tiramisu. In... More

Charging $15 per person per hour during the World Cup I think stinks! Is that even legal? I was in the line when they put up these signs and left immediately. Get off your high horse, you have a big screen big whoop! See you again never! 👎
