From the moment you step inside, you'll be treated to outstanding service, exquisite cuisine, and a warm, inviting atmosphere. I can't wait to return and try...more of their delicious offerings.

Wonderful Italian food. I had the Seafood Linguine with red sauce and it was loaded with mussels, scallops, & shrimp. The best I’ve ever had. My husband had the carbonara & it was very well prepared. Desserts were very well done. A very good all...around experience & Angelina, our waitress was very attentive.More

Service is good, food is very mediocre and overpriced for what you get. An Italian restaurant's badge of honor is it's gravy (marinara) and this place I'm told is using an old family recipe which basically is as good as jarred sauce. They advertise this...place as authentic Italian. Having been to Italy 4 times this place wouldn't stay in business there. I always try the chicken parm since its a signature dish at most Italian places. It wasn't pounded out like it should be and was covered in pizza cheese instead of a good quality mozzarella. Was told mozzarella is too expensive to use. Drive to Vaughn or Richmond hill. This place isn't worth the visit. *NOTE* Both my dining partner and myself (first date) got sick several hours after eating here and were sick with stomach issues for almost 2 days after. Not impressed. This reduced my 3 star rating to 1 star and it really should be zero. Clearly they have some cross contamination issues going on here. Another reason to avoid this place.More

I don't usually write reviews because I find that they are subjective based on individual expectations. However when looking for a good Italian restaurant one would expect that the restaurant with the highest reviews would be a good place to go. Not So. My wife...and I met another couple for dinner and decided we would try this place because of the reviews and it's central location. The food was a step up from fast food. The tables were not clean and the atmosphere was family diner at best. Our server was Pleasant and Very Professional. We had a good time with our friends despite the ribbing I received because I was the one who suggested the restaurant. I hardly ever complain about price but in this case we certainly did not get what we paid for. I will chalk this up to a once in a life time experience......More

Recently had a retirement party in the small side room. The service and food was outstanding. It made for a very reasonable event cost. Planning was easy. Although the room was small we were able to use the upper bar area for more space. We...could bring our own decorations and set up the room how we wanted. The waitress was amazing! We had cash bar and about 40+ people and she was able to keep everyone’s bill sorted. She was very professional. The whole event was amazing! Thanks Fanzorelli’s for a memorable party!More

upon entering we were greeted as though they really appreciated us being there. once seated at a window table Angelina a young server, impressed us with her very mature welcome and congeniality. The menu was varied, prices were fair and the questions we asked were...answered with great detail. We were encouraged to share a salad without trying to up sell us as a starter. Once we received our orders, what a taste delight as the food was true Italian! We were visiting the city and would come back in a heartbeat at some other occasion if we were in the area. It was a great experience!More

We have eaten at Fanzorellis both with family and friends for the past 2 months pretty consistently on a Friday night. We cannot say enough positive things about every dining experience we have had. To begin with the service has been above and beyond. We...would like to send out a special mention to Danielle who for the most part has been our server every time we have visited Fanzorellis. She is always so friendly and helpful and has made our dining experience so great. The owner is always visible and stops by the table to say hello. The food is amazing. Everything we have tried has not disappointed. We would highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic night out or a gathering with friends and familyMore

Cozy Italian bistro, definitely NOT a chain restaurant and you'll feel the difference right away! Right from when we sat down our server Danielle was friendly, attentive and welcoming.... and she was soooo great all through our meal! Danielle was there when we needed something,...but at the same time we never felt rushed. Amazing top-notch service, that's getting harder to find these days. My husband and I had starters, mains and desserts. Plus cocktails, wine and espresso (with a shot) afterwards. Yes, we were out for the full dinner experience! And I have to say Fanzorelli's didn't disappoint on any front. We shared a charceuterie board to start, then I had the seafood linguine with rose sauce, and my husband had the mushroom linguine with sausage. We went with Danielle's recommendation for the mains and for the wine, she was very knowledgable about the menu and the wine list. Great choices! Pasta was homemade, cooked to perfection, and the sauces so flavorful. Dessert was the house made tiramisu, and it was so just.so.good!! Some restaurants bring in desserts, and I can always tell. I don't waste calories on those! LOL I will be back for the tiramisu at Fanzorelli's. We had such an amazing dinner, and a wonderful experience, we'll be back for the food and Danielle's amazing service too. Can't wait!More

My husband and I came here for for the first time for lunch. What a fabulous meal! We started out with some warm fresh bread that we dipped into olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Wish they gave more bread lol. With your meal you could...have a salad or soup. My husband got the caesar salad and said the dressing was fantastic. I had a mixed greens salad which was tasty. He ordered gnocchi gorgonzola with chicken and I had the lobster capellini. They were delicious. For dessert the homemade tiramisu and creme brulee were fabulous. Service by Angelina was great. She is friendly and attentive. The menu is packed with lots of amazing sounding dishes. We will be back here in the future. Highly recommend!More

I’ve worked at a few restaurants and never felt a strong pull to leave a review, I’ve worked here for a few months now and I’ve been thoroughly impressed by this establishment and the people within. Everything is made fresh each day, almost everything is...made from scratch. The desserts are so amazing, If I eat another tiramisu here I may turn into one. There’s accommodations for gluten free, vegetarian etc. I recommend the Rosanna Farfalle pasta, the Gnocchi Gorgonzola pasta and the Pesto chicken pizza, all 10/10 to me! The service is really great, the owner really cares about the restaurant, the quality and the staff. And my favourite part is the effort put into decorating the place for occasions, there’s currently over 400 gold ornaments hung from the ceiling. It took 4 days to hang them all, im very excited for Valentine’s Day, I think it will be decorated beautifully. I hope you take this as an honest review despite me now being a worker here, because I do mean every word!More

I'll be the first to admit-- I don't usually take the time out of my life to write many reviews. Most of the once I do end up writing are based on bad experiences I've had at restaurants, almost always as a last ditch effort...to be heard when I didn't feel things were resolved at the store level. This is one of the few exceptions where I feel like I've needed to take time and write a positive review because the experience I've had was just so perfect. My girlfriend and I Lauren decided to try fanzorelli's out and we we're so impressed by the service we received, and even more importantly, the quality of food. Fanzorelli's has become our own little date spot ever since we first ventured in there and we've been happy every single time. I recently ordered the lamb and my girlfriend ordered the gnocchi, and naturally we shared a little bit with each other because we wanted it to feel like we were reenacting the scene in The Lady and the Trap where the dogs lock lips while eating spaghetti. Both dishes were breathtaking and every other dish we've tried has also been a hit. The owner has even taken the time out of her day to get to know us and welcomes us every time we come back. It feels like q home away from home. With food costs and inflation I rarely feel like going out is worth it anymore. My girlfriend and I realized that we only had to spend a few dollars more than a fast casual place like Montanas to get a better experience and we are hooked. The winter menu they had when we went recently was well thought out and it was nice to dine somewhere where we felt like there was a vision in mind and serious thought put into a dish. The servers are always wonderful and the hostesses are always very quick to give us more fresh bread if we need it. We are definitely hooked to say the least and I can't continue to dine there is a loyal customer without taking the time to mention just how special our experiences have been. If you haven't dined here I highly recommend you give it a try Thank you Fanzorelli's management and staff for giving us a restaurant we can finally enjoy in every aspect - Anthony & LaurenMore
