Gnocchi that melts in your mouth! Wonderful food and great service. We asked if the gnocchi was fresh and tender enough that it would melt in your mouth, like we remember it in Florence. The chef made sure it did. Fabulous.

So happy you enjoyed the Gnocchi. We love that it reminded you of when you were in Florence as that is a great compliment. Thank you.

This was all of our first time at the restaurant. The service was excellent and so was the food. Portions were generous. We had appetizers, mains and desserts. As there were 5 of us, we had a very good sampling of their entire menu and...everything was great quality and delicious. I very seldom eat to the point of discomfort, but I did here because everything was so good. Excellent restaurant.More

Very classy place. They were swamped with it being Winterlicious, and there was a long wait for our table as they were behind in reservations, but the delicious food was so worth it! Moreover, the hostess was gracious and apologetic and even bought everyone waiting...in line a round of drinks, on the house! Excellent food and service, highly recommend!

Made a reservation for New Years eve, and we can't wait to go back. When we arrived we were given the option of the dining room, or wine bar area. We chose the wine bar area as it appeared more intimate and quiet. We were...greeted right away by our waitress Erin, who was accomodating and friendly. Amazing service. We started the night off with cocktails from the menu, followed by a fantastic bottle of wine that she recommended to accompany our food choices. We ordered the mussels appetizer to start folllowed by the wild boar chop and lobster ravioli. We were skeptical to try the boar, but it was explained that it was a traditional Italian dish, and it didn't disappoint. It was succulent and rich in flavour. The raviloi was fresh with an al dente texture. The sauce was decadent and flavouful, and the seafood stood out. The mild spiced pomodoro sauce for the mussels was perfect, and the mussels were plump. We ended the evening with a couple cocktails at the bar, and rang in the New Year with sparkling wine and lots of great cheer. We couldn't have had a better dining experience, and we can't wait to go back. This is our new local gem.More

Wonderful little Italian place in Etobicoke - the food and service were both absolutely fantastic and it's very reasonably priced. We had a Pizza Margherita to share as an appetizer and it's the best we've had in Toronto - as close as we've come to...what we experienced in Rome. The pasta Bolognese and Cioppino were also excellent. Would definitely recommend for a nice night out.More

Best food. Best service. Best ambiance. Enjoyed an outstanding baked salmon and the Mario salad. Others in our group all had same comments.

Delicious food once the wait staff could figure out what table to bring it to. Awful service, poorly trained & inexperienced staff on a Wednesday night ... just a mess basically. Only redeeming feature being the very well prepared food, although one of our party...had cold food, I suspect because staff didn't know which table it was to be given to & after wandering around looking for a place for it, then taking it back to the kitchen to sit, it eventually arrived cold.More

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
