Excellent place to eat good, have a nice cup of wine, delicious dessert and amazing service!!! The place is small so it’s good idea to make a reservation before going if planned to go at lunch or dinner time. Will definitely go again!

The food was good and the inside of the restaurant was very nice. The service provided by the restaurant was excellent, and the people were very nice.

been there three times and keep saying that it will get better...no such luck. Falcos is not an Italian restaurant just because it serves overprices pasta dishes. Tried the fettucine carbonara, the cream sauce was watery, the "fresh" pasta was undercooked and the portion for...$29.00 was more a lunch portion. They don't have any Italian beer and the place is noisy. I do not think this location deserves the accolades at least not from my experience.More

When they make their own pasta and the quality of taste is high. Then there really is no need to put a review into words except wow. Nice Staff, pleasant atmosphere and just a great restaurant

Had an absolutely wonderful dinner with great friends at Folco's Ristorante tonight. Starting withthe fresh bruschetta appetizer and rack of lamb with mushroom ravioli for dinner. Best dinner of my life. The lamb was tender and full of flavour and the pairing with the mushroom...ravioli was a fantastic combination. Lovely red wine from the almafi region of Italy. A culinary delight!More

I had high hopes for Folco's in Markham. I am very fond of Italian cuisine and was looking forward to a satisfying meal. I only ordered the mussels in white wine sauce and was eager to chow down on one of my favourite seafood dishes....It came to the table at room temperature, and there was something quite astringent in the vegetables that were in the broth. I couldn't finish it, and there was an unpleasant taste in my mouth for some hours afterwards. Also, I had brought a very special Italian wine (a 1921 Ornellaia) but was told that the restaurant didn't allow patrons to bring their own wine - even if a corkage fee was charged. I'll know better next time . . . . .More

Love that their ingredients are sourced both locally and directly from Italy - definitely shows in the quality of the food they serve! Enjoyed cocktails - especially one made with lemons from Amalfi. Appetizer was their seafood platter of shrimp, calamari, and scallops - batter...was light, crispy, and well seasoned. Dinner was lamb shank with mushroom ravioli in a rich cream sauce. Lamb was cooked to perfection and paired really well with the ravioli and sauce. Dessert was cheesecake with a creme brûlée topping with a dollop of ice cream - surprisingly not overly sweet and the brûlée was caramelized beautiful. Staff is very friendly. We really enjoyed our meal and will definitely go back again!More

What a wonderful experience! The staff are pleasant and warm. They welcomed everyone with so much respect and with their friendly spirit. The minute we walked in to the restaurant, Ms. Juli and Ms. Angie welcomed us and seated us at our table. Our wonderful...waiter, Mr. Stefan was very very helpful and cheerful. He helped us to chose a very good bottle of red wine and our main course. The head chef, “the owner” of Folco’s, greeted us at our table with a friendly smile and a great conversation. Overall, I highly recommend this beautiful restaurant for excellent authentic Italian food.More

we went there on a recommendation of a friend who loved their salads - and thats about all i can say i enjoyed. the food was dry and tasteless especially the seafood. the service was mediocre the ambiance was non existent as we sat on...the patio on wobbly plastic tables and chairs. do not order the bruschetta either its just watery tomato dices. in other words you are better off having italian food at a franchise like scaddabush than this "hand made" "authentic" italian restaurant,More

Poorest Service ever when the place is full of people. Would have given another star if the food came out hot. Service was at its worst ever. No one came to offer water or provide a greeting when we were seated. We had to flag...down someone to place our order after sitting for 15 minutes. The person was not even our server. We still do not know who our server was as not one person came to introduce or offer their service. You would expect an overall good experience for the price they charge per dish in Markham! Disappointed as I've been coming since the place opened. Used to be very good service and food would come out piping out. Our pasta dish came out luke warm. They have a nice patio, again, do not book during height of their service for the food would be cold with no service.More

Had dinner at this charming restaurant on Markham's Main Street tonight. The atmosphere is so welcoming and the staff are exceptional and friendly. The food was incredible! We had a Matty's Meat Lover Pizza and a Positano Pizza. The ingredients were so fresh and the...pizzas were absolutely perfect. We couldn't help but also have dessert. The Limoncello Tartufo was exquisite and the Chocolate Fudge Cake is sinfully delicious. Overall an incredible night out!!!More

With the pandemic restrictions, Folco's had service on a covered patio, with heaters! We enjoyed a lovely bot of red and shared a calamari fritte. She ordered one of the fabulous pasta dishes, while I stayed with the apps and chose a delicious, perfectly prepared...and plated beef carpaccio. Friendly and attentive service.

Enjoyed pasta dishes with friends here. Very packed the night we went so reservations are key on weekend. Winter salad opening was very good, creative, balanced and fine starter. Penne Vodka was decent with slightly too much sauce but a minor complaint. Gelato dessert was...also fine. Noisy at times but hey we are all happy to be back right? Service was a but slow and sometimes forgetful but servers were also swamped due to full restaurant. Heated patio not tried but looked great. A cozy, fun, established place well worth trying.More

Had good reviews, but our experience anything but. Starting off with our server - She was very flustered and provided poor service. First, she told us we couldn't order Sangria because that was not Italian. There were not water glasses available so she kept apologizing...and that she was handling everything that night. Service was so slow. We sat down at 7:30 pm and didn't get our meal until 9:00 pm. Also very disappointing that we wanted the well know oven pizza, but we were told by her and the owner they don't do pizza's on Saturdays??? come back on Wednesday instead. Prices were too high. Ravioli was good but you only get 5 for 28.00 dollars and wine glass was 19 dollars? Don't bother going unless you want to be ripped off. Server name was Sara. Which she also never introduced herself or told us of any specials. When the owner came by he told us about specials and wondered why we didn't order them! Took waitress forever to let us pay for meal. She was busy petting a dog at another table and broke a glass on her way. Would have liked a credit.More
