Excellent food, the service was pleasant and attentive. The suggestions were what we tried and was tasty. The ingrdients were fresh. The chef came over for a chat and a digestive. Were are going back next week witha larger group.
Spectacular dinner! Excellent atmosphere! The staff bent over backwards to satisfy you from the moment you walked in. My cell phone needed a charge and one of the waiters took it upon himself to get me his charger from his car. What!? The food was...exquisite and I like great food! Risotto was one of the best I have ever had, comparable to Joso’s risotto Nero and that is saying something! Highly recommended restaurant! An absolute gem.More
The restaurant is behind a gas station in Woodbridge, but the taste of the food and the great selection of food and wines will keep you coming back for more. The chef is very creative and comes up with a new dish to tempt you....Everything is fresh and delicious. The service is great. Give this place a try. You will be glad you did.More
To say this is a hidden gem is an understatement, tucked behind a gas station, the restaurant has been producing innovative Italian food for 10 years. Recently because of travel my wife and I had not been for a few months, we couldn't wait to...get back and the it didn't disappoint. The Bloody Caesar salad, new to the menu was excellent and the risotto was fabulous. Still great after all these years - hint, make reservations.More
My husband and I booked reservations for our anniversary at Oca Nera after a family member highly recommended them. We were surprised of the location, which was nearby and yet we had never noticed. The restaurant is very nice inside and I believe they had...outside seating, as well. The food was great and we were both quite after appetizers and entrees. They have a fantastic wine list and choice of entrees. The only thing we weren’t impressed with was the lack of knowledge of the young waiters and the rather long wait for our entrees.
We were greeted by the owner who was extremely pleasant. We highly recommend this restaurant. I believe it is quite busy as well and highly recommend a reservation. Truly a hidden gem in Woodbridge!More
We've been here twice now & both times were incredible! Wally (owner/matre D) has a real knack for knowing what we like & want. He's always great at pairing drinks with our meal. We don't even ask, we just say bring us wine (white or...red) and he always brings us what we like. He takes great pride in his restaurant & has the largest wine & spirits collection I've seen in a restaurant anywhere in Vaughan. Food is delicious! We have tried the fried calamari with fried zucchini strings, the shrimps wrapped in pasta & fried, the squid ink pasta with seafood (my favourite), seabass, and other fish specials. First of all, this is the only restaurant that I have tried in MANY years that knows how to cook mussels. They are plump, juicy & not overcooked. Most restaurants cook them so much that they become tasteless and tiny. The whole squid ink dish is delicious & the mussels are yummy. Loved the calamari/zucchini dish. The chef puts love into the dishes & presents them perfectly. Everything we have had has been yummy and we were happy with the dish. The dessert at the end of the meal is a nice added touch & much appreciated. As for the decor, it's not your typical trying too hard decor in vaughan. This place is down to earth, clean and doesn't need to wow you with the decor, it does that with the food, drinks & ambiance.
Thank you Wally & we'll be back!More
Oca Nera was that special go to place. Such a disappointing evening. Welcomed by stained and out of seasoned menu. Same "Winter" menu we experienced 4 years ago. Disappointing since we were well into the Spring season. Same obnoxious owner/maitre de serving side of sarcasm....Still great flavours but disappointing menu given the price point. Lost its originality. Such a shame.More
