“An unforgettable gathering with family and friends....”
Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

As a family we decided to celebrate at Brigantino Osteria for my father's 60th birthday with family and friends. Together we created a meal that left our guests speechless! Sam filled the room with smiles as laughter as he entertained our guests! Vince's ability to prepare meals with perfection for small to large groups is amazing! Our group still talks about how amazing the food was. There's no place like this to accommodate to your small dinner for 2 to large parties as ours, 50. Truly an incredible day with our friends and family that we will never forget! You must try it once to truly understand the experience! Like no other! Thank-you to Sam, Vince and the staff for creating wonderful memories for us on such a special day!

“better than most”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

just gave this establishment a second try and have came to the same conclusion, its a good restaurant with good food but nothig outstanding. the wine list is short and not much choice, the server brought a meal I didn't order I did not mention it as I was not prepared to wait any longer. As I said the food was good the service attentive (but for the wrong meal). I would recommend this place but there are better restaurants on Erie Street.

“Overall an AMAZING experience!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

In the few months that Brigantino Osteria has been open, I have fallen in love with not only the food, the restaurant, but also the staff and family of Brigantino Osteria. I came in as a server and now consider myself part of the Brigantino Osteria family. Everyone that walks in through the restaurant doors is treated with respect and treated as family. From Sam's bright smile and warm hugs or hand shakes, to the staff's warm welcome and respect, to Vincenzo's amazing cooking, everyone becomes a part of The Brigantino Osteria family. It is a guarentee that you will have an amazing experience! The menu selection is amazing, something for everyone, and Sam and his son Vincenzo (chef) are open to creating a dish that you have in mind, even when its not on the menu! The prices are very affordable and the servings are amazing! Sam's warm welcome to ensuring that your expereince is rated a 10 on every visit is his goal! Hot food and amazing customer service are his priorities with his customers. If you are lucky enough to catch Sam with his guitar for special events or requests, you will be treated to a fun visit! The staff is always available for you to call with questions or party bookings, takeouts, or special requests! New to Brigantino is gift cards as gifts to family and friends to share in the expereince as well! So excited for the new patio to open in the spring! I have been able to expereince Brigantino Osteria as an employee, as a customer, and now as part of the family! Overall...an amazing expereince...from the front door to the kitchen! Congrats to Brigantino Osteria! An amazing start! <3 Patricia Brusco-Teti

“The Best Time Ever!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

If you're looking for a special place to relax over a scrumptious meal in a classy venue, you'll find a warm welcome Italian style at Brigantino! Owner/chef, Sam, has created the ideal Italian restaurant with old favourites and unique new recipes and delicious, fresh home-made bread. Not only is there a wide range of delectable choices on the menu, but Sam graciously strives to accommodate your dietary issues; he cheerfully offered to modify a recipe to meet my gluten-free needs. If you're lucky, Sam might just pick up his guitar and serenade you with beautiful Italian love songs for a night you'll long remember! Mille grazie, Sam, for a wonderful evening!!
