I would avoid this place. Service was terrible. There was 4 of us for dinner, we must have sat there for more than half hour before the waiter acknowledged us. This is unacceptable no matter how busy a restaurant is. The waiter was rude and arrogant all night. This guy should be working in a factory rather than serving people.... More

Located north of Toronto city limits, in the northern part of Richmond Hill, this Italian restaurant has an menu that is atypical, yet terrific. There is even a vegan option for those whose tastes lean towards all things vegetarian. The food was served in a timely fashion; yet, we didn't feel rushed. Excellent wine list, terrific wait staff and lots... More

Tough to figure this place out - their Internet info says "Great Date Night Vibe" but on the Friday night I was there (on a date) it was so crowded that quiet conversation was nearly impossible. So who was there? Families, Birthday Parties, Girls-night-out Groups. Yet the prices and menu choices were totally geared to date night dining - I... More

We had dinner at Sarpa 2 weeks ago for my Wife's Birthday and had a great evening out. We were actually doing some reconnaissance for a future family gathering as well and were not disappointed at any level. The service was excellent, the ambiance was tasteful and modern and most importantly the food was great! We will be back, with... More

If you love seafood pasta (which is a dish I order often and have eaten many times in Italy as well) then you should try the squid ink tagliatelle with octopus at Sarpa. I was so thrilled with it that I had to give my compliments to the executive chef in person. He really hits it out of the park... More

The quality of the food at this restaurant is outstanding. I've been here for dinner several times and even had my daughter's baptism here last fall. Each and every time the food is mind-blowing. Seafood is always fresh, meat is always incredibly tender, pasta is always delicious and unique. Excellent wine list and service as well! It's always a pleasure... More

Great food, great service and great wine list. It is always good to be there, I gave been at so many 5 star restaurants and tried their food and at the end, we end up at Sarpa or Terra restaurant for a good food. Highly recommended

Recognizing that this is a suburban fine restaurant, never busy at lunch! Their prices are on the high side for lunch. Nevertheless good food small portions, excellent wine list..good selection of half bottle wines to choose from. Service attentive and efficient.

We were a group of 8 celebrating my 20th Wedding Anniversary. Food, ambiance, staff was great. Everyone's dinner was very good with the exception of my husbands Surf n Turf. Fish portion way to small and flat iron steak was rubbery. He wanted to send it back but didn't. He should have. Tiramisu was amazing.
