Enjoyed a girls’ evening out at Caffe Mio, but was very disappointed by the rubbery calamari, the overpriced white wine, and the flavourless fettuccini Roberto. Fortunately the price reflects the quality of the food, and it seems a lot of neighbourhood folk come here for an evening out. Service was good, if pretentious. Good value for the money.

I am happy to hear you enjoyed your evening and the service was good. I am sorry to hear that the food was not to your liking. As an owner I believe I speak for all of us in the restaurant industry that you should let your server know during your quality check if there is an issue so that... More

They have a nice open patio outside and the food and service is average to good. The wine by the glass is expensive and even a half litre is quite expensive. It is difficult to find as the gps takes you two blocks away from the place.

It never fails to amaze how a restaurant--in this case our local bistro--can plummet from being delightfully predictable to out and out awful. We decided to make a "last" visit with friends due to our impending move to the West Coast. We phoned weeks ahead to ask the owner if he could make his famous lasagne--we received no reply when...

Cafe Mio is that perfect balance of small and intimate with big service and fresh amazing food. The restaurant is quite small but it makes up for a small size with knowledgeable servers who know their wine and their menu and wonderful food. The menu is not large, but every dish is Italian at its finest. The pasta is perfectly... More

Of course in the middle of Westboro this little Bistro offers excellent Italian fare with good service - all ate good food and had good reviews of their plate. My Lamb shank was quite savory.

Attended a birthday party here with friends and spent the majority of the evening. Everyone was fantastic, great service and the food is to die for. Definitely don't miss any opportunity to try Cafe Mio, you will not be disappointed and will be sure to mark it as a location you will return to!

Went for lunch with my Mother. We both had one of their panini sandwiches and enjoyed them. Will go back again.

Cafe Mio is our go to local restaurant located in Westboro. It is an Italian Restaurant so there is always a great choice of pastas. I am not huge fan of pasta but when I am in the mood Cafe Mio always hits the spot. The food and the service are both excellent and they have a decent wine selection... More

I have been to Caffe Mio on a couple of occasions with friends and was not disappointed. We ordered different apetizers and dinners and the food was absolutely divine and the servers very friendly and knowledgeable. I would most definitely recommend this restaurant. Since the Caffe is very small, I suggest you make réservations well in advance. Worth every penny....
