My husband and I had a groupon to this amazing restaurant for a four course meal. Started with a Caesar salad. Best homemade dressing I've ever tasted. Followed by rigatoni with pork meat sauce. The waiter topped it with fresh Parmesan and ground pepper. Again, blown away with the taste as it had fresh basil as well. Our entree was... More

There is nothing fancy about the place. But the food is above average and does all the talking. The staff, most of which are owners or so it seems, are attentative, friendly and willing to go the extra distance to make sure you are satisfied. There were 4 of us for lunch, and while we all had pasta dishes, the... More

My husband and I bought a Groupon for Mirto to use while we were on a little getaway into Toronto. We had a lovely experience at this restaurant. We went on a Saturday night and it was a very good thing we had reservations. The place was hopping and walk-ins were being turned away. The owners were bustling about and... More

Mirto Is a place that I just have to hit when I'm in Toronto. Simply amazing ambience and feels like home. Great food - try the always great prosciutto, asapargus and gorgonzola pasta..... rich but yummy as my wife described it recently. The veal is great and do not skip dessert! If I had one night in Toronto I would... More

Visited here on a Monday evening. If you like good rustic simple Italian food done well this is the place to go. Service was good and efficient. We had the beef and lentil broth which was excellent, followed by spaghetti in tomato sauce and my husband had the rigatoni. Both meals were excellent, a good size portion and well seasoned.... More

Nothing awful happened, just not a great experience. As a whole I felt some hostility from the staff, and the waiter was extremely awkward. Salad, pasta, and dessert were all very good, and I very much enjoyed the Scotch selection, that being said, the main (steak) was poorly done. I actually struggled to finish it, which is rare for me.... More

To a great degree Italian dining in North America moved from hearty ‘better red than dead’ Southern cooking to the fancier, often cream-based Northern cucina. An evening at Mirto, however, proves that, well, the south of Italy will rise again. We came in on a Saturday evening, which is not the busiest night for this eatery located in Toronto’s business...

We went here on a Saturday night and it was totally dead. We learned that this restaurant caters to the corporate crowd mon-fri. Our experience was so-so. Food was ok and service was pleasant but rushed (not sure why because there weren't many customers). I might consider trying this restaurant again if it is during the week but I wouldn't... More

We stumbled across this place while searching for another restaurant and decided to change our plans since it was raining. Happy we did. Friendly service enhanced the delectable food and good wine list. We spent the time awaiting our food looking at the building's interior. Twenty-foot ceilings with old moldings and large windows allowing plenty of natural light proved once... More

Went one night and the service was awesome! Rachel made sure that my wine glass was full and gave me great suggestions for the evening. The tiramisu was great! The music was great. Went again and the evening started great. I was greeted by the owner and he remembered me from the night before. I ordered the caprese salad (good)... More
