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.

Food was excellent, we had a new waiter but will be back :) Food was actually perfect!!! I can't fault the new waiter other than he should have known the menu and when we say we are not ready don't keep coming back every 2 minutes LOL We as diner's do have etiquette maneuvers that subtly tell you we are...

Room was really nice. Waitress was not friendly. Food was average at best. I know Chef Massimo was not there but not sure how much he is there anymore. Had been there a few times in the last two years and the food has gone down hill.

Why have I waited so long to go back here? If you have read any of my previous reviews for other restaurants you will know that I believe that the front of kitchen staff are as important to the dining experience as the food that comes out of the kitchen. Here the service is impecable where all the servers work... More

I was blown away with the meal. I was expecting small portions like other restaurants served during Winterlicious because of the fixed price. They gave us full size portions that allowed us to experience the restaurant in full. This is not about Winterlicious, it is the great food and unbelievable service. Well done. We will be coming back.

I am still waiting for the ball to drop at Mistura... it hasn't. The food, the service, the atmosphere.. perfect.. What surprised me more than anything else were the portion sizes. They were quite abundant. Any reviewer that suggests that Mistura needs to keep up with the times, is simply a fallacy. They don't know food! A restaurant needs to... More

The food at Mistura is good, but not great. As others have mentioned, the service can also be a little less than desired. It is not as though the food or service is bad, it is just not great. For example, on a recent visit the server was very rushed and didn't seem to be able accommodate questions or provide... More

Went for dinner with my wife on a recent Friday night, and was greeted by an "interesting" hostess, that suggested that we sit right at our table, 5 minutes before our reservation time, as opposed to having a customary (in my books) drink at the bar first. After finally agreeing to our request, we sat at the bar and watched... More

We have been going to Mistura for years and have never been disappointed. The quality of food is superb. The service and attention to detail is exceptional. We will continue to go back to this restaurant.

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!
