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.

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!

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.
