Description: 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 payed a bit more than average for our evening but got even more than we expected. From perfectly grilled calamari to mouth watering rabbit, good wine advice and some of the most professional staff we have seen. We went because it was one of Massimo's restaurants but would go again because of our experience!

Having just moved into the Annex area we decided to reserve for New Year's Eve dinner. Decision was reinforced by favourable Zagat ratings. Good reception and nice table assignment. Sat at table for 15 minutes before being asked if we had been served yet by the maitre d'. Replied no, so he took our drinks orders. Bus boy arrived with... More

This restaurant was recommended by a family member and our friends were really impressed. The server was very attentive and made some good recommendations. The wild boar ravioli was amazing, the scallops very tender, and the Chianti superb. Not cheap but memorable.

When I travel to Toronto for business i will always try to make to Mistura for an evening meal. Typically I will pick up my daughter in Kitchener and go for dinner with her. We never look at the menu. Instead, we tell our server and sommelier to feed us what ever Massamo feels like making and pair the wine... More

This restaurant serves some of the best Italian food in Toronto. The carpaccio is amazingly fresh and delicious. The risotto rosso (red beet risotto) is wonderful, but best shared between 3-4 people as an appetizer - it's a bit too much to have a full portion on your own. As an entree I had the cotoletta di vitello (breaded veal... More

The evening started by us pulling into the parking lot in front of Blinds to Go to be told by two men the spaces were reserved for valet parking. We were in a parking lot that would have been free if we were going to look at blinds. I couldn't find one thing on the menu that appealed to me.... More

This restaurant had a wonderful ambiance, although it was a little tight between tables. The waiter was pleasant and made an effort to make conversation. The food was alright for the price paid but I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I probably wouldn't go back because I didn't enjoy the menu.

Great local restaurant. My wife and I took our daughter here on a Thursday. Busy with a good atmosphere. Drinks took too long, but after that, service was super. Food was superb and well presented. Smaller portions, but great to try many dishes. Overall, excellent Italian.
