A West end landmark for over forty years, Cabotto’s is a family owned and operated establishment. Set in a nineteenth-century sophisticated three storey, stone heritage house with six separate dining areas and two fireplaces. The epitome of class and elegance Cabotto’s is recognized as an ultimate destination for fine Italian food. Although the style is upscale, the atmosphere is casual and the price is reasonable.

We decided on Cabotto’s as it had been several years since our last visit. We booked our table online and on arrival the check in was super smooth. Our vaccine status was checked and once completed we were promptly seated at our table. Given that...we are still in the pandemic tables were well spaced and all the staff were fully masked putting us totally at ease. My wife chose the Gnocchi Gorgonzola while I had the Veal Mignonette which was advertised as a house specialty. When our meals arrived the portions were very generous but more importantly the food was outstanding. All in all the entire evening was superb. Given how few opportunities we have had to go out due to the pandemic we could not have asked for a better meal out. Cabotto’s did not disappoint and we won’t leave it so long to return again.More

Great food and service, very busy and loud. More like a bar than fine dining. Good size portions and tasty. I had the stuffed veal

Food was okay. For the price of the entrees I thought we'd get more than one roll each. Our server was fine but nothing special. I thought it was going to be a typical Italian family restaurant but we didn't see or meet any of...the owners.More

The employees forced me to participate in a reenactment of the war of 1812 where I was forced into a firing line and had leg blown off by a stray cannon ball.

My regular go-to restaurant. Absolutely the best rack of lamb in the city. Wonderful owners and staff.

The location has great parking and it is a beautiful Canadian stone house. Inside you are surrounded by a warm home atmosphere. The "greeter" is so vivacious and welcoming. We had the osso bucco and the braciole. Calamari to die for and a server -marco-...of perfection. While tosca remains our 35 year favorite italian - this place is fantastic. What a great nite. Physical distance was perfect. Wowzee😇😎More

During these difficult times, we needed a break and wanted to support our favorite local restaurant. All precautions were in place and even with a reduced menu for take out, there is lots of choice. Excellent veal marsala, veal parmigiana and a shared Caesar salad...with a bottle of wine made for a lovely evening at home. Thank you Vince, Perry and CarmenMore

Was here for a business dinner. A place I can recommend. Great value for money. We enjoyed every dish. Italian style dishes. Fantastic old building. You dine in a living room atmosphere. A perfect place for a romantic dinner too. Reservation is mandatory. Can be...done online. Ask for the daily specials! Will come againMore

I don't know. I saw nothing to indicate they welcomed you bringing your own wine, unless it is ok for private parties. You'd have to call them.
