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

Nestled in the financial district of Toronto this restaurant, once a trust company, is located in a heritage building and still holds some of the original architectural beauty. Our welcome was warm and the service was excellent, very friendly, personal and attentive. We came to this restaurant through a groupon coupon which offered a four course fixed menu - it... More

Bought a groupon for this restaurant. The ambiance was ok - small and quiet, which is good. Service was kind of abrupt and rushed. Wasnt very perosnalized. Had 2 different people taking our orders, delivering food, etc. Never came back to see how our food was. I even had to get up myself to get the pepper grinder and grind... More
