We have been spending a lot of time traveling and have realized that we take our fabulous Canadian Mussels for granted. Tesoro's takes these plump gems from PEI and makes the best curry we have had anywhere. Ask for more bread to dip in it or just get a spoon and enjoy. Who cares who is looking! The food here... More

Tesoro gives good value for the dollar, except for the pint of beer I had at the bar which was way too pricey for any restaurant. As far as I am concerned, beer is beer as long as it's fresh and cold. Paying too much for beer leaves a bad taste in the mouth, and reflects badly on the business,... More

Had a difficult time deciding what to order because didn't seem to have a lot that might satisfy me. Sauce on my husband's pasta seemed to have a "Canadian Italian" taste, not a true "fresh, authentic" taste. Difficult to describe, but was disappointed. Was really looking forward to my warm mushroom salad, but was breaded and deep fried. Taste was... More

I was disappointed that I made a reservation several days in advance and was seated right next to the kitchen. The entire meal was marred by servers walking back and forth between the narrow hallway and the table. Booths by our table sat unoccupied during the entire meal. I ordered the caprese salad and found it a little bland -... More

While I do enjoy the food at Tesoro, the service is poor. The waitress came to our table while brushing her hair into a ponytail! She also took at least 10 minutes to advise us they were out of what we had ordered. Much prefer to take out.

We were a group of 10 ladies enjoying a getaway weekend. By chance, we stopped at this restaurant for lunch and we were amazed of the good quality and impressive home made flavors of the food! Highly recommended!! sorry there are closed on Sunday!!!

By far the best Italian restaurant in Collingwood. We have lived in Collingwood for six years and tried many area restaurants - we continue to return to Tesoros over and over again because of the food and service. Great pizza, towering lasagna and coffee. Great atmosphere and have never had a bad meal there. The crowds on week nights speak... More

We stood waiting at the door as two servers ate at the bar. Finally one of them came over to greet us, but before we sat she went back and finished her food. As a first time customer I had heard great things about the restaurant, but after ordering the "seafood" pasta I thought it was quite tasteless. Our server... More

My husband and I visited Tesoro on February 18th 2014. We made reservations for 8:30pm. It was a little difficult for our GPS to find the restaurant as it is located at the back of a parking lot area. When we got inside we were showed to our seats which was to the right of the entrance, almost in a... More
