We had booked hoping for the fabulous patio, but it was raining, unfortunately.
Our waiter was wonderful... pleasantly making suggestions when required, but never intrusive.
The food was pretty good, but not greatly memorable

Perfect escape in the city for a calm, peaceful, and delicious dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Very reasonable prices for the quality of the food and service. White linen tablecloths and friendly waitstaff. We’d pick this over a loud and trendy chain anytime!! Thanks Biagio!!

Food and setting were great, but the service was very slow. The restaurant was not busy so I can only imagine the issue began in the kitchen or perhaps it was our somewhat distracted and disengaged waiter.

Went there for a romantic New Years Eve dinner, we were visiting Toronto from out of the country and wanted to find something cozy and tasty for NYE and this place fit the bill. When we arrived, we were greeted by the owner. We had their 6 course meal that was put together by the chef specifically for that day. It was a grand tour of flavor and carefully arranged ingredients. The food was authentic, and every plate was unique and tasty in its own special way. Every bite was savored and we left very happy and content. The waiter was able to get my girlfriend's favorite sparkling wine and constantly checked on us and filled our glasses without interrupting. At the end he gave us a brief history of Italian heritage in Toronto and where he grew up. The room was filled with Italian speaking folks, and the atmosphere felt very warm and inviting. If we were to see ourselves in Toronto for another New Year's Eve, I will strongly consider coming here again. The restaurant might be only 2 years old, but they are doing a lot of things right.

We made a reservation for December 24 at 7pm. We were confirmed. I received a text message from the restaurant days later asking me to confirm my reservation. I did so by pressing “1” to confirm. We arrived several minutes before the reservation to find that the restaurant was actually closed. Why would I be asked to confirm a reservation for a restaurant that wasn’t going to be open on the date? Thankfully, we were able to find another place to go. Not much was open Christmas Eve, and the restaurant we found was subpar. Either Biagio or open table dropped the ball on this. I’m sure each will blame the other. But, Biagio falsely presented itself to customers.

Excellent restaurant with great photos of Old Toronto on the walls. Quiet and pleasant atmosphere with view of King Street.
Food is classical Italian and service very traditional. Truly a European old world comfortable feeling.
Would recommend!

Biagio was super! I picked the restaurant based on great reviews on open table and trip advisor. Excellent wine selection. Menu is very nice with a broad selection of pasta, meat and fish dishes. My wife and I both had pasta dishes for our main courses. Both were very tasty and prepared with fresh ingredients. Service was great our waiter new his stuff and was a character. Would highly recommend Biagio for great Italian food and hospitality.

Excellent meal and service. I had lobster pasta with generous pieces of lobster. It was delicious and filling. Husband loved his lamb dinner and we shared a fabulous panna cotta for dessert. We enjoyed the ambiance and pace of service.

Great service. Food was very good although my bf ordered a shrimp dish and it came with only two jumbo shrimp for like $40. If I didn’t share my pasta with him he would have been hungry. Also the main dishes took a VERY long time to come out. All in all the food was delicious and the service was great.

We were early and had the place to ourselves. The waiters and management were very attentive and engaging and brought out the courses fresh, hot and in a timely manner. We browsed the extensive wine menu and checked out the great patio in the back. We’ll definitely be going back!

We love Biagio. We dine here at least once every time we're in Toronto. The food is wonderful, the service is great. It is always a special occasion for us. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that the menu is somewhat limited, especially if you don't eat veal or shellfish. But what we had was wonderful. If there were more menu options we would have gone back for a second dinner.

This is a fantastic, traditional, old world (mean that in a good way) Italian restaurant. If weather is nice sit outside, but the inside and building in general are beautiful. Off the beaten path a bit, which is nice. Venture away from the more "nouveau" hip joints and come to Biagio with a date for a nice, romantic, take your time and enjoy your significant other kind of evening. The waiters are traditional, service-first, and gracious....very welcoming. I would imagine if you went to a nice little place in Italy, it would be like this. Owner Biagio is warm and welcoming. His wife was in the restaurant this night, and my wife disappeared at some point and was chatting with her inside, while Biagio came out, sat down, and kept me company. You feel like family here....can't go on enough. Oh and the food was outstanding, great wine.....everything top notch. Find this place and put away your cell phone, take your time, and go away feeling happy, satisfied, and relaxed.
