First time and food and service were great. They just needed to turn on a bit of heat and once that was done it was a lovely meal!

Great neighbourhood restaurant. Family run small and cozy room where food is excellent quality and well presented. We enjoyed the evening's specials and glad they still had some extra special touches - like the amuse bouche and sorbet palate cleanser.

This is a neighborhood gem. Amuse Bouche and palate cleansers with an eclectic menu. The chef knows their stuff. A warm fig salad was a pleasant surprise. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed the evening. The food was beautifully presented and delicious.
It was relaxed and felt we could have stayed longer.
The only issue was the staircase down to the washrooms which was painted black. Although it was very elegant felt a lighter colour at the edge of each step might have made it safer.

First time here and it was beyond amazing! The amuse bouche was a yummy piece of beef. Then we got the clams to start (they were out of mussels) and they did not disappoint. We were brought a spoonful of lemon sorbet to cleanse our palette before our mains - nice touch! I got the truffle chicken tagliatelle and my friend got the steak (cooked better than at some steakhouses) and both surpassed our expectations. We got a bottle of wine (reasonably priced!) and make sure you try the flavoured vodkas - so smooth! the service was excellent and after speaking to the owner, we learned that it’s a European fusion restaurant, not just Italian. The restaurant vibe is very cozy and intimate, a little on the quieter side. Safe to say we will definitely be returning! A very pleasant experience :)

Dinner Sept 1, 2019 began with a shrimp and avocado salad (wife had shrimp with mango) which was absolutely wonderful. The wine accompaniment was a half liter of their Sangiovese which was smooth and soft on the palate. Home made bread was delectable. After a sorbet to freshen the palate, I ordered the Black Cod special (wife had Linguine Fruitti de Mari) with a Miso reduction and grilled vegetables. The fish special was nothing short of outstanding, very toothsome; as was the Linguine. Despite an appealing dessert menu, we only had room for 2 Limoncellos which topped off another fantastic meal at 12 Tables. Would we return? Absolutely, we booked my birthday for a party of 9 in a few weeks before we departed!

The last few times we have been It got quite noisy, the food as usual was excellent as was the service.
We have been a number of times and have noticed that other than the pasta selection there is not a lot of choice other than what we have had before.

but we will be back

the food was very delicious, we had a 7 year old boy who is a picky eater and he gave them a thumbs up on the food. He loved the eggplant appetizer... very surprised as he hates eggplant :). In addition to the food the service felt personal with little touch compliments of the chief. Will definitely return when in Toronto.

My husband and I did not enjoy the food or ambience at this resto. We only went because the reviews were so good and it's in our neighbourhood and yet we had never gone to it. We won't go again. Food was not commensurate to the price point.

Salad was excellent but the steak was overdone and not very well seasoned.
The other couple really enjoyed what they ate.
Overall I would recommend the restaurant, but they should take the steak off the menu.

I can't praise this restaurant enough. I think that this was our 6th visit and it was just as wonderful as the first. We shared the three special appetizers - beef tenderloin, smoked salmon and avocado/mango. The dressings on all three were delicious . The beef was my favourite. My guest had the duck, my husband had the fish special and I had the salmon. We each enjoyed our meal. The presentation, the service, the food and the ambiance were excellent. The little extras were also very important - the cheese, the sorbet cleanse and the limoncello. Of course, we each had dessert. With a bottle of wine and several other glasses ( there were white and red wine drinkers), the bill was about $100 per person and worth every penny. We will be back soon.

Spectacular. This was our first visit but there will be many more. Service as efficient, pleasant and unobtrusive as anything I’ve ever experienced, and we are a family with a passion for fine dining. Exquisite food. Succulent shrimp, beautiful pasta, magnificent pavlova. A wine list of select but beautifully articulate choices, such that there are numerous wonderful pairings for every course. Bravo! I am going again this week!

At last, a gracious and delicious neighbourhood restaurant! The service is warm and friendly; the small touches of Amuse bouche, palate refresher and after dinner lemoncello make it very special, as does the Birthday dessert!
We will certainly return soon and often; in fact, we're going for brunch today.

Everything was excellent - main dishes were amazing. Service outstanding. Quality and price for appetizer salads was not great; $21 for a pre-dinner salad of lettuce and oranges - a bit much.
