Excellent Restaurant

This has always been one of my absolute favourite restaurants in Toronto. Today was even more outstanding. We had lunch during the Summerlicious event and both the food and the service were superb.

Went for dinner with some friends. Opted for regular menu over Summerlicious option (as per server's recommendation). At the start of our visit the server was full of sarcasm - his take on humor. It was cute at first, but got old fast. He made jokes about the ridiculous pricing of the mushroom agnolotti ($24 for 4 agnolotti). Saying things... More

I was attending as part of a group. There was no shortage of food and service was great. Glasses were always being topped up, whether it be water or wine.

The family went there for father's day and we were one of the first groups in the place. We did have to wait for our table for another group to leave which I thought was interesting. Anyway, we got seated and ordered drinks and our meals. Slowly other large groups started to come in. We seemed to have been forgotten... More

Not sure why on Father's Day your restaurant would be under staffed knowing you had big tables and big reservations on the way. Kudos go out to the Chef for some great food but boooo to whomever the Manager is that oversee the front of house.

Successive visits to this restaurant have been a consistent success and last evening was again a positive experience. All 5 of us had excellent dishes with fresh ingredients,traditionally prepared and well presented. My lobster salad and then calves liver were outstanding,but everyone enjoyed their dishes too. There's an excellent range of Italian wines,in particular,across a range of prices to suit... More

Had dinner here recently and had a very good meal with excellent service and entertaining waiters. We each ordered a different appetizer and the waiter was kind enough to split them up and serve us each some. Everything, from the appetizers to the main course to dessert, was delicious. They featured a number of daily specials and we all enjoyed... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by close friends of mine who have been going for years. It is located at Bloor & Royal York. They have been around since 1973. It was a relaxed atmosphere and wait staff very friendly. The food was amazing had the braised short ribs! Definitely going back!

The restaurant is located in Bloorview Village area of Toronto which is a nice little area in itself. Love this restaurant! It brings you back to the way restaurants used to be, waiters in black and white, bartender mixing up classic cocktails, piano player and the food! Delicious food with a great menu.
