Executive chef: Daniele Corona

  • Award icon

    MICHELIN 1 Star

    2022

Don Alfonso 1890 is the epitome of fine dining, from the delicate Italian plates to the chic decor. The restaurant has collected countless awards for its nuanced approach to Mediterranean cuisine, including one MICHELIN star. The tasting menu is a can’t-miss experience, but a la carte dishes like ravioli stuffed with pheasant are equally tempting.

    As someone who recently dined at Don Alfonso 1890, I was thoroughly impressed by the experience. The ambiance of the restaurant strikes a perfect balance between elegance and comfort, creating an inviting atmosphere for any occasion. What really stands out is the menu, which brilliantly fuses traditional Italian cuisine with innovative culinary techniques. Each dish was a work of art, both in presentation and taste, crafted with high-quality, fresh ingredients. The flavors were rich and memorable, reflecting the chefs' exceptional skill and creativity. The service was impeccable, adding to the overall exquisite dining experience. Don Alfonso 1890 is a must-visit for anyone seeking a top-tier Italian culinary adventure.

    This is the best diner experience we ever had since we moved to Toronto in 2019. We have been watching this place for a while and of course it’s not cheap, but despite the reviews from haters where it says that it’s not enough food, I seriously don’t know how the hell people can say that. We had diner last night and it’s 12pm and I’m still not hungry! Besides, the food flavour profile is something beyond some people comprehension, that’s why.

    It is hard to write an accurate review as going here is about so much more than a meal. The signature tasting menu is far above and beyond anything you can imagine and the whole evening is an experience. From the moment you arrive the service is outstanding, the views are incredible, the entire evening is one to remember.

    Reserved the Rolls Royce experience for my wife’s birthday dinner and it was a truly luxurious experience. Picked up from home by a chauffeured Rolls Royce Ghost to get to the restaurant. Jacob, our driver, was courteous and a great driver, providing a smooth and comfortable drive. Our table had a spectacular view of the city at night. Service at the restaurant was wonderful by the whole staff. Our main server, Catherine, had a delightful French accent and provided us with attentive service. The sommelier, Felipe, was very informative with his explanations for our wine pairings. At the end of the meal, the manager Daniel, gave us a tour of the gorgeous restaurant and introduced us to the head chef, Davide Ciavattella. The washrooms are also impressive with floor to ceiling windows. As soon as you lock the door, the bottom half of the window becomes opaque to five you privacy. Very cool. Overall, an dinner worthy of the Michelin star and an experience we will want to repeat in the future. Thank you.

    I owed my parent's a nice dinner for their upcoming 53 Anniversary plus is was my partner's birthday, so this was a fun way to celebrate with them. Beautiful views, incredible service, amazing food. Our dinner went for over 2.5 hours and it was time well spent. This is not something I will do often, since it is quite expensive, but will definitely be back for the next very special occasion.

    The food was exquisite. The service was outstanding. The background music did not suit the setting. Instrumental soft music would be more appropriate that the various styles of music we had throughout the dinner. It is difficult to have a conversation with club music or any other strong vocal music.

    Don Alfonso boasts a stunning venue and incredibly attentive service, creating a seamless dining experience. The food, while well-executed, lacked the consistent creativity I expect from a Michelin-starred restaurant. Some dishes truly shone thanks to excellent wine pairings, but others felt less inspired, relying on classic preparations rather than unique flavor combinations. Tight seating impacted the ambiance – I went early to avoid this, but later in the evening, the higher noise level and lack of privacy became more evident. At this price point, Don Alfonso has the potential to be exceptional with a few refinements to the menu and dining space.

    We had lounge reservation and the hostess took us to dinning area where we were given option to chose out of fix menu. We had shell fish allergy and we don't meat beef. There was no choice in the menu provided. Then we had to request to accommodate us and they shifted us to lounge area but still didn't give us offer to select a suitable menu from lounge menu. Ambience was nice but with the feeling of not being understood for meal selections and not honoring the reservation made ( lounge) was an extremely bad experience. Even when this was brought out to the staff, no one went upto the management to check. We felt cheated.

    This place was indeed excellent! We loved the food, ambience. We had a woman named Catherine who was our server and she was super friendly. They gave details about every dish while serving. Complimentary food was given. They also served us complimentary dessert on the occasion of our anniversary. The most sweet gesture was a valentine’s day card and a rose, felt really special!❤️

    The food was amazing, 10/10 for sure. I wish I could eat here all the time. The attention to detail by the staff is what made our experience even greater. From the valet service and being greeted at Don Alfonso, and the staff throughout the entire meal we were perfectly catered to. I can’t speak on the wine, but the cocktails were delicious.

    The food I ate was delicious but I was unable to finish the tasting menu because they sat a couple beside us who were wearing a disgusting amount of perfume and cologne. The smell was so strong I couldn’t taste my first main course and we asked to move to hopefully enjoy the rest of the meal. However, by the time we got another table the noxious chemical smell had made me fill ill and I couldn’t eat the last three courses. We asked for our bill to leave because the smell had made me sick, our server didn’t seem to understand and just brought out the remaining courses. I wouldn’t go back after this experience.

    Amazing gastronomic experience!! Overpriced but you are paying for the overall experience. Service was great and so was the food. Just the lobster dish turned out to be slightly chewy. Cocktails were fantastic and I’d recommend this place for atleast a one time visit on a special occasion.  Nice view, I’d recommend going during sunset.

    The head sommelier provided such an amazing addition to our dining experience. His knowledge of the wines as well as the regions in which the grapes are grown is outstanding. His explanations of the wines felt like I was taken on a trip to the wineries themselves. His descriptions enabled me to enjoy each note and how they complemented each dish. Truly a one of a kind experience overall

    This place is rip off, The food being baby sized portions was fine because we all know these so called “fancy” restaurants give you two bites of everything. Besides that the taste was horrible I can say everything in the menu was disgusting either the food was extremely salty or extremely tasteless. This place is very overrated and not worth your money. I would not eat here even if it was free!

    Good food, good service, beautiful restaurant, and great wine pairings. It's a solid, 1-star, Michelin restaurant. It's definitely not worth 2 or 3 stars though. Maybe in time it will ascend to loftier heights?
