My wife and I stopped in for lunch after passing by the restaurant several times. While the service was fine, the food tasted like it was mass produced, frozen and reheated. Disappointing experience.

You know when you look at a restaurants menu and it’s full of pictures it’s not going to be good. We stopped in for something to eat because we were in the area. The waiter was rude and not at all helpful. When my husband...More

This place has gone significantly downhill over the past year. I used to love this place and enjoyed a real italian food! My last visit was such a disappointment; the staff was not friendly and the food was horrible! I would reccomend avoiding this place...More

This restaurant seems to have gone downhill over the last couple of years. The food came out really quickly which always makes me suspicious of how far in advance it was prepared. The quality of the food is mediocre Italian and was definitely better in...More

I've been to this restaurant many times over the years and it is still popular. Usually you need reservations but I was solo and it wasn't a problem. I enjoyed their grilled salmon lemoni. It was perfectly cooked, flaky and moist with lovely grill marks...More

I never go out for Italian food anymore. But for a date on a Friday, I decided to. I was happy I did. The food was satisfying: large portions, good flavours, and a great selection. I had the baked cannelloni in rosé sauce. Wine was...More

A very large menu with lots of choices. A bunch of gluten free options for my wife which was great as she is celiac. The cheese pizza bread is great and is a must to be ordered.

A group, friends and family, dined here for a special occasion. I note that the majority of reviewers here rank La Veranda as "average"; from my experience, they are being very kind. The bread baskets were slices of no-frills baguettes that were either day-old or...More

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.

Certainly the restaurant has the space to handle such a party and I am pretty sure I saw advertising in the reception area offering such facilities for large group catering. As to special dietary requirements, my Niece was... More
