I went to 255 By Alta Rossa last night with two friends. It was very difficult to get a reservation but we had heard such good things about it, we kept trying. We booked 2 weeks in advance. I am glad we did. The food...was delicious. I had the lamb chops. Which is usually my go to. They were fabulous! Very tender and perfectly cooked. My friends were also very happy with their branzno and salmon choices. But what made the evening so great was our amazing server, Luana! She was friendly, attentive and gave us great suggestions on the menu items. Although I loved the food, I would return for the service! Thanks, Luana. You made our evening.More

The restaurant is beautiful and well furnished, the staff are friendly. We ate very well, too bad the environment was very noisy. Good fried polenta, meat and pasta. It is not a cheap place but it is worth it.

The food we ordered was good and reasonably priced. Try the seafood linguine or the mixed grill. The vegetarian options re very limited! Decent wine selection. The host (Friday night) is exceptionally rude - he as zero organizational and people skills - he would best...be suited to the back office. Fortunately, there are other restaurants in town that are more welcoming and deserving of my hard earned money.More

We had a wonderful patio lunch at this lovely restaurant. The service was excellent and timely. They have a great selection of wines and liquor. But the food is authentic and freshly made. We had an assortment of appetizers that we shared, carpaccio, calamari, salad,...and pizza. All were delicious and I am very, very picky. You can’t go wrong here. Thank you for a wonderful experience! We will definitely be back!More

First time visit to the 255 for all of us. The overall consensus was that it was a great place, good ambiance, excellent food and service. Meals varied from pasta dishes, gnocchi, penne, to lamb chops (delicious). Starters like beef marrow bone to polenta fries....Well worth the visit when in the Vaughan Mills area. We will return the next time we are in the area visiting family.More

We had a late lunch on the patio. The ambiance is good and tables are well arranged. We ordered veg pizza, sea food linguine and ravioli in rose sauce. The food was good. Some of the staff could try to be friendlier though.

I have been a 255 regular for over 20 years. I have hosted many of my company's Christmas Holiday parties with Alta Rosa as well as been a regular diner at their old address as well as at their new one. The food and service...are consistently wonderful. Yesterday we decided to do take out for our New Year's Eve dinner - everything was perfect - pizza, pasta, calamari, chicken parmesan. This is a family owned and run restaurant that knows their Italian cuisine.More

255 is mediocre at best. The quality of their "Italian" food, does not meet the standards of a true Italian Restaurant. I began my meal with an app of pizza and fried calamari. The pizza had a sour tasting tomato sauce -- not a nice...Italian sauce. The calamari were good if you like your food on the salty side. Most people probably would not appreciate the amount of salt used but for me they were o.k. My main of spaghetti carbonara was extremely disappointing. I make this dish at home and it is 10x better than that at 255. The pasta itself was overcooked and sticky while the carbonara aspect was not traditional at all. There was no true carbonara flavour but rather a heaping amount of black pepper. The atmosphere and service is good but the quality of food is not up to expectations.More

After many months of isolation we finally managed to get back with our very dear friends for dinner, 6 of us visited the patio of 255, the day was another record high but the patio was well covered (and so were all the staff! Thank...You) for anything Mother Nature could throw at us. We started with drinks of course to quickly be followed by a few more, the staff was very friendly and accommodating, we started with some amazing appetizers, grilled calamari- perfect!, polenta fries- by far the best, and a margarita pizza- mmmm buffalo mozzarella. Never at any time we’re we rushed, which is so nice too see today. Then we ordered our mains, ranging from there amazing pastas to there lamb chops and chicken parmigiana, you really can’t go wrong with any menu item. Now, if your in a rush I would suggest informing your server when you arrive as dining typically isn’t rushed which I personally totally agree. Thanks Patricia, amazingMore
