We visited this restaurant as an anniversary date. The vibe was great - very classy and romantic, and we were seated at a table right by the window. The food was decent, but sure not worth what we paid for it.

Had a great lunch here with colleagues for a birthday celebration. We all ordered some variation of the pasta and all licked our plates clean. Yes, it is a little pricey but the food is quite good. Definitely a nice place to go to for a special occasion.

Little Anthony's used to be our favourite pre-opera dining spot. Then, a few years ago, both the food and service declined to the point that we stopped going there. Having heard that things had improved, we felt that we should pay a return visit. "Improved", wow, quite an understatement; even the front door is in a different place! The food... More

I was quite disappointed I didn't hold out and just go to Little Italy instead of going here. Unfortunately we were tired and didn't feel like getting a cab to go to Little Italy and our hotel said this place was good and close to the hotel. I got the Butternut Squash Ravioli's and was quite excited, one of my... More

Atmosphere: Very clean, well laid out restaurant very close to downtown Toronto. Great place for a business meal as it does not get too loud and is good for conversation. Service: We were greeted by a pleasant host. Our waiter could have been more on top of our table but he did an ok job. Everyone once in a while... More

Little Anthony's had great food! The service was good, atmosphere good, but it was a little bit pricey, but acceptable since the food was quite delicious. I would recommend if you are looking for a nice meal and don't mind spending some money.

Excellent food, good atmosphere, service was good but it is expensive over $100 for 3 people with on alcohol included. They charged us $3 for every soda per person. Waiter was nice but had many tables and it took awhile to get served but once served it was very good. Also charged us for every change on menu like one... More

Loved the atmosphere, and the big windows all around. Nice, quiet, subdued lighting and great food. The menu was small, but the wine list was big!

This restaurant was recommended by Dave, the concierge at the Hilton Inn Toronto. It was 1 block from the hotel. Nice atmosphere where you can sit by the window and people watch. I had the house Merlot and my husband had the house Chardonnay, both were generous pours of wine. The bread here is delicious! Tables are draped with real... More

A small Italian restaurant in downtown Toronto. The service was extremely friendly and efficient. The food was very fresh, well prepared, and good value for the price.
