Located close to Toronto's Yorkville area, Mistura opened in October of 1997 to rave reviews and continues today with the same ideals. It boasts excellent quality, seasonal menus prepared Chef Massimo Capra's way and served by the professional and knowledgeable team. Mistura is about hospitality that's fun and comfortable, set in an elegant candle-lit atmosphere. A contemporary Italian cuisine reflects a simplified yet refined approach to taste. An extensive wine list, including wine from some of the world's finest vineyards, and an attentive, knowledgeable staff add to the appeal. Perhaps you prefer a more intimate, private setting. Mistura's private dining room holds 14 people, while the semi-private dining room holds up to 40, to cater to your more private functions.

We were in Toronto to visit family, and decided to try this out. We were very favourably impressed by the service and the food. In fact the owner and the chef came out to talk with us. It seems that a high proportion of the patrons were regulars, which says a lot about a restaurant. We feel that the prices... More

This used to be a much better restaurant. The service was good but the Arctic Char was missing something. It seemed to be a little fishy and dry. The little bit of sauce hidden under the wilted spinach was sparse though tasty. Good wine list but not worth returning here.

From the statuesque young lady who greats and seats you to the well-trained and friendly trained staff, everything about Mistura is first rate. The scotch, martini and wine lists are extensive. There could be more choices on the menu, but invariably there is something to please just about any palate. It's a great place to both people watch and be... More

The evening got off to a slow start, as the waiters seemed short staffed. However, the excellent meal that followed more than made up for it. I had the Beef carpaccio as my starter, followed by seared sea bass as my main . Both were very good. The Tiramisu that followed was exceptional and we shared it. I was visiting... More

Love the food and atmosphere at this place. They are also very accommodating for diets. Staff is friendly, prices are a bit high if you go off the beaten path but otherwise very good Italian food.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
