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

Excellent variety. Everything had taste. The fried artichokes were sublime. Not greasy! Delicate- but hearty. We split four appetizers and each had a main. The wild boar agnolotti were devoured by all. Dessert was excellent and the service was smart, not in your face and youthful.

Until recently I had only visited Sopra (above Mistura - same owner). But my last 3 visits have been to Mistura and every visit the food (and wine) was fantastic. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine (they have suggested the wine on each of my visits. Paolo has a passion for food and it shows... More

I had a nice meal at Mistura, but the service was lackluster at best. We sat at a table of eight, and both appetizers and mains arrived 2 dishes at a time. And the server has no idea what dish was for which guest. To my mind, good service requires the server to know who ordered the fish and who... More

The food and service were wonderful. The only negative was that our server did not share with us the specials, although we asked if there were any.

Mistura is about engaging people face-to-face. The restaurant is quite dark, there are no intrusive televisions and if there was any music playing it was impossible to notice. They don't need to distract you with anything here, the food and service speak for themselves. It is not cheap but you are getting mostly what you pay for. Very good food... 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.
