We eat out probably 3-4 times a week and we can easily say that this is THE BEST restaurant we've ever been to! I mean the taste is just out of this world! If they brought a restaurant here in London, Ontario, I would help them fill it each and every day of the year. We were in Toronto for... More

We come here often for a nice dinner out in Yorkville. Either a special occasion or just a much needed night out. The food is always fabulous, and is only made better by the service. While the restaurant can be dark and sometimes a bit loud...it is a gem in Toronto and well worth the trip to Yorkville

It was a bank holiday in Toronto and a Monday and we appealed to the concierge at our hotel, The Intercontinental Yorkville to suggest a venue for dinner. She made rservations at Spuntini, within walking distance of Bloor Street. She told us that it was one of her favorite dining places. She was right. The food was outstanding and the... More

There must have been 16-18 in our dinner group. We had a somewhat separate area but ordered from the full menu. You can imagine how many different choices there were! All arrived at the same time, and everyone at our end of the table was absolutely and thoroughly pleased with every choice. The waiters were at hand throughout and made... More

We had a good time and delicious food at Spuntini's. Athens location was great for us-- in Yorkville a few blocks from our hotel. Our waiter, David, was informative and attentive. The chickpea spread served with the bread was delicious and great for diners who don't want butter or olive oil. We shared a Caesar salad that was divided in... More

Very busy and can be quite noisy when crowded. Food is okay, but the tables are very close together. It is not somewhere to go if you want a quiet evening.

Yes it's summer and restaurants want quick turnarounds but this was ridiculous. The waiter had no table manners and was only interested in up selling and getting us out of there as fast as possible. The food, as per usual though, was excellent. Gnocchi was light, the mushroom pasta had excellent flavour, and the lamb was succulent. The atmosphere was... More

We celebrated a birthday here. It is a quaint Italian restaurant with a extensive wine list, a wonderful menu and outstanding service. Our waiter Dave, was so attentive and through. It was a pleasure having him wait on us. He was knowledgable of the area and gave us lots of tips.

We walked to the front and were struck by the location, ambiance and quaintness. Yorkville is a great part of town to walk around in Toronto. Try to reserve a table on the terrace if possible. However, each table seems very intimate. Great place for business, date, or family events. Initially, a gentleman came to assist us with finding our... More
