Continuing on 20 years of personable service and gracious welcome, under the helm of Peter Catarino (formerly of Spuntini), EVOO Ristorante is ready to host you, offering the right mix of food & wine from Italy and Mediterranean. Nestled along flower shops at 138 Avenue Road, EVOO is steps away from some of Toronto's finest hotels (Park Hyatt, Intercontinental, Hazelton and Four Seasons) and the groove of Yorkville. The inviting atmosphere of EVOO plays host to couples on a romantic dinner, gathering of friends and family or corporate dinners. We look forward to welcoming you.

This was our first time at EVOO and the food was wonderful as was the service. Our waiter was an older gentleman who was Spanish and he was wonderful we will definitely be back next time we are in town.

This was our first visit to EVOO. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and seated right away even though we were a little early for our reservations. Our waiter was knowledgeable and pleasant. The food was amazing and plentiful. We will definitely be returning.

I just love this restaurant. I’ve never had a bad meal here.
Service is good too. Book an early reservation if you want quiet because my 8 pm it can get crowded and noisy

Fun place for sure. 7:30 res on Saturday kept us waiting for 15-20 minutes which was kind of a downer. Food was good but not much effort in the presentation. We'll be back.

An early New Years dinner made for a fabulous start to the night. Friendly and efficient service, great that menu was a la carte and not forcing us into a set meal. Food was fresh, presented beautifully and tasty. A full restaurant, great service, and excellent food. Thank you!

Being that it was New Years Evg., I guess you must not have big expectations, but for the prices that are charged you should have a very tender veal chop for $45 and tasty lamb chops, also $40. The calamari was very good, but the Caesar was low on dressing and also quite expensive. Getting staff was really hard if you needed something such as dressing or mint sauce for your lamb which they don't have.

EVOO is always amazing. The service is very friendly and attentive and the food is delicious, and reasonably priced. Highly recommend the gnocchi (some of the very best I've had), and the penne alla vodka, which is super delicious. Their mushroom risotto is wonderful too.

Una delicia! Todo lo que pedimos nos encanto.
El servicio y calidez de los meseros hicieron un día muy especial.
Lo recomiendo al 100%
Pedimos el pulpo que estaba buenísimo y un risotto ai funghi increíble y un rigatoni arrabiata exquisito

EVOO is an intimate upscale restaurant with tasteful decor, excellent service and fabulous authentic Italian cuisine.

Wine by the glass was generously poured... as one would do for a guest in your own home. That was a nice touch!

Noise level was acceptable, and having a conversations over dinner was possible without shouting.

I'd definitely return and would recommend it for date night, or anytime you have a hankering for an excellent Italian meal.

Everything was great except we (me and a friend) noticed all the other tables getting complimentary shots after dinner when they received their bill, but we were excluded for some reason. We kept expecting the waiter had forgotten and we were about to get ours but we waited and waited and eventually just left. That was the only disappointing part of the evening. Otherwise it's a great restaurant.

Once again EVOO did not disappoint. The food is fresh and well presented. The service and server was excellent. He seemed to know what we needed before we did. The front of the restaurant is noisy but the middle and back sections allow you and your guests to carry on a conversation. My favourite restaurant in the area

My veal dish was okay. Not as tender as I would have liked. I thought the dishes were quite good size but somewhat overpriced. Mid price wines were delicious.

My colleague & I both enjoyed our meals, having had the veal sandwich & rigatoni respectively. Ambiance of the restaurant was nice and while the tables are moderately close together, noise levels were quite acceptable. The only qualm we had was that there seemed to be only one waiter so service tended to be a bit slow. We had to ask for water twice & then had to flag down the waiter to get our bill. The quality of the food however did make up for this somewhat so if you are ok with a “relaxed” dining experience, this restaurant should fit the bill!
