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.

What more can be said, or added to the accolades of one of Toronto's outstanding restaurants? As a favourite of my son's, Mistura was his choice for a family birthday dinner. We started with shared plates of proscuito, crispy artichauts and the most delicious burrata one could imagine. Truly the burrata melted in our mouths. For our next course, again we shared: the beet risotto, in which you could taste each delicious individual grain of rice . Beyond the exquisite look of the wine-coloured offering, the creamy consistency of the risotto was perfectly flavoured. You knew the chef had actually stood and encorporated the broth bit by bit into the rice. The hands-on stirring makes a difference! For our "secondi', our family divided between the lobster pasta and the bolognese. Knownthroughout the city for these two dishes, Maximo truly deserves his reputation. My bolognese, a confection of beef, veal and sausage meats is so light that you would not associate it with a "meatballs and spaghetti" dish. The pasta as well is perfectly cooked, not too al dente or soft. Others had the chocolate brownie and maple ice cream, I was too pleasantly sated but enjoyed the presentation of the dark choclate roll against the icy maple treat. a lovely, well-paced, delicious supper. Not surprisingly, even on a Friday night, the restaurant was full to capacity.

Delicious, high quality food. Good value and portions for fine dining in Toronto. Beautiful atmosphere and great service.

The desserts...delicious and beautifully presented. I enjoyed the hazelnut semifreddo and it was to die for....My sister and a couple of other guests enjoyed the chocolate cake with the rum and banana sauce....

Older crowd...we were there for a stagette, but thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. A lot of the guests came by and congratulated the bride.

We have been there for our first "fine dining" 4 years ago and were thrilled with the experience. Ever since we have recommend Mistura to our friends. We decided to come for a second visit. It was totally worth it! The food was unique and very tasteful. Ask for a cappuccino at the end: you will not be disappointed. Mistura still remains one of our favorite restaurants.

My family and I had a late dinner on a Wednesday evening, after a TSO performance. Even for a weekday, the restaurant was at capacity, so we were glad to have made reservations. The service was good, although we had to top up our own wine as the waiter wasn't as attentive (or maybe we were drinking our wine too quickly!) The seafood was cooked to perfection, the pasta was delicious, and although the portions were small, the food quality was excellent. Quite expensive, but worthwhile for a special occasion!

We ate there last week and I really disappointed. I had the Branzino, overcooked over a medley of what were those.......veggies? totally uninspired, some of potatoes were crunchy!!! It's the pasta that should be al dente, not the potatoes. Anyway $130.00 poorer. I wish I had stayed home or ordered in from Pizza Pizza. Don't bother. However, if you like bread, the bread basket is excellent.
