I had the grilled squid (flavourful, chewy, lots of it) and my wife had shrimps & scallops (lots to eat and a wonderful flavoured sauce). The service was quick, polite, cheerful, friendly and personalized. The small dining room was pleasant and comfortable. We’ll be back.

We had an excellent meal here one evening last week. After discovering it by accident several years ago, we try now to eat here once, each time we're in Toronto. Don't know how this place survives -- it looks straight out of the 1960's but...More

Went with three other people and we all enjoyed our meals and the entertainment delivered by the professional comedian who perhaps works at Yuk Yuk on the days they are closed. I had the lobster ravioli and the sauce was as good as any consumed...More

Very quiet mid week. Service was excellent, very friendly and attentive. The pasta dishes were quite good, portions were satisfying, wine recommendation was excellent. Fresh bread was very good, butter was too cold.

Traditional decor and dishes. Good salad and ricotta-spinach ravioli. Chianti classico by the glass. Exactly what I was looking for.

Great small restaurant tucked away on Elm Street right by Yonge Street. You would have thought it would have been louder on the road, but it wasn't. Food was very good, staff was very attentive. Had the lobster pasta which came out extremely well. Split...More

I read the complaints. Like REALLY. Very good value, incredible service from all the staff but especially the really twisted one (ie the female beauty)! The food is better than anything I can make at home and I am the best cook in Canada!

My wife and I had visited Frascati once last year before while staying at the Chelsea. Before, we received spectacular service from a young waitress. While the food was not great, we hoped to at least receive the same service, but this time we were...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
