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 with 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.

As an update: Dear patrons, EVOO has set up a “pop up alley patio” with limited seating... book your table before summer gets away...
We look forward to welcoming you.

Loved the new romantic set up in the alleyway that's behind the back of the restaurant. The food was mostly great. Some of the servers were better than others but we had an overall amazing experience here and would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for authentic Italian cuisine.

Beautiful romantic date for a birthday, we were in the makeshift patio (post CoVId). Hosts remembered the cake at the end of the night . Very nice touch!

The staff are phenomenal! Nikki and Her husband who own the restaurant are first class! We were so impressed with all their hard work with coping and managing around COVID rules! The patio was beautiful with the fairy lights...it was the perfect night and we will definitely visit again soon! Food was fantastic too! Everything was cooked perfectly and the flavours...! Thank you EVOO!

This was our first venture out for dinner post Covid-19. I was pleasantly surprised at the ambiance Evoo managed to create in a small back parking lot. Nice shade, nice music and nicely decorated. Staff were wonderful and genuinely pleased to see us. Food was awesome as always. Please visit Evoo and any of your favourite haunts who are operating. They need your support.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday and my first restaurant experience since Toronto opened for outdoor dining. I appreciated the care the team took to make us feel comfortable and the meal was delicious. I admire the resilience of Toronto restauranteurs and the creativity especially in creating outdoor spaces where none previously existed.

We have had a birthday dinner with my husband and the kids. It was a pop-up patio and designed very well. The ambiance was very nice. We had fish of the day which was delicious. Service was also nice and friendly.

The outside eating area they set up at the back of the restaurant is perfect. Quaint, romantic.. feels like being in Europe. This Family run restaurant is a great business to support during a time when many restaurants are struggling. Highly recommended!

A lovely local restaurant in the heart of Yorkville. Intimate, friendly and attentive.
Food is prepared as you like it. Good menu with choices for all, but not too many to affect quality.
A perfect place to relax and dine.

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.

Service is good too. Book an early reservation if you want quiet because my 8 pm it can get crowded and noisy

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.
