If you have many many Canadian dollars with which you'd like to part company in exchange for some very nice food, this would be a good place to go. That's what happened to us and it also seemed to be happening to lots of others all around us, so it's a safe bet that's what you can expect at Umberto's.... More

We had dinner at the restaurant. The food is average and overpriced. We had four of the pasta dishes and none was exceptional. Would definitely not recommend.

Great location and beautiful outside patio but food only adequate. Not terrible but much better value elsewhere. Wine list a joke and markups enormous even for Canada
