Our table of 4 attended Mistura for their "Chef's tasting menu" with accompanying wines. Owner/Sommelier/Host Extraordinaire "Paolo" walked us through a rare adventure in gastronomic supremacy, the likes of which we have seldom experienced in our (too many years to want to remember, world traveled) lives. Brilliantly prepared, uniquely presented, I could not select a favourite because virtually everything was... More

Beautiful, elegant but still cozy interior. Most delicious food - worthy of its price. I had red beet risotto and lamb ribs and after a month I still remember the great taste. Perfect for family&fiends & even business dinners. Perfect service, worth mentioning. Highly recommend!

Mistura has been around for more than 20 years and still delivers an above average dining experience. The decor is a little dated but does create an intimate and classy setting, perfect for a business dinner, anniversary or just a meal with friends. The restaurant is Italian-centric serving a combination or traditional and unique dishes. For starters, you can't go... More

Our first time at this restaurant - enjoyed it very much. Excellent service and wine conversation - when we asked if "he" was in the house, they explained that he was no longer at Mistura. They worked very hard to maintain the standard, and we would say that they surpassed our expectation. We would certainly go back to try their... More

Description
Located close to Toronto's Yorkville area, Mistura opened in October of 1997 to rave reviews and continues today with the same ideals. It boasts excellent quality, seasonal menus and served by the professional and knowledgeable team. Mistura is about hospitality that's fun and comfortable, set in an elegant candle-lit atmosphere. A contemporary Italian cuisine reflects a simplified yet refined approach to taste. An extensive wine list, including wine from some of the world's finest vineyards, and an attentive, knowledgeable staff add to the appeal. Perhaps you prefer a more intimate, private setting. Mistura's private dining room holds 14 people, while the semi-private dining room holds up to 40, to cater to your more private functions.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
