The restaurant was very nice and the server was great. The food was okay and a bit pricey for the serving size.

Not only did we wait at least 25 minutes for the waiter to bring a cocktail menu after initially sitting down, but the pretentiousness of the staff soured our moods.
The menu is overpriced for what we received. We do not mind paying but for at least a better portion and for meals that weren’t so bland!
We had to keep asking for either pepper, or more bread (since the bread actually tasted better than the pasta).
The waiter had neglected to inform us how much wine would cost since it wasn’t on the menu. $35 for a 5 oz. glass? Thanks for the heads up.
The only saving grace was the tiramisu.
I am a well traveled and experienced food critic, and I had one of the poorest restaurant experiences hands down.
What a pity! I am certain the sister restaurant in Milan has a few things to teach this location.

Carpaccio was great, ambiance is amazing, squash ravioli is to die for, and the truffle sausage gnocchi was some of the best gnocchi I’ve had in the city. Great spot.

It’s really good, but this is the second time my partner and I have gone and the second time they neglected our complimentary bread lol. First time we had to ask for it mid meal (not knowing for certain if it was complimentary - but my partner LOVES bread and everyone else was having it) and this time our server said “I’ll bring you some foccacia” and it never came. Didn’t realize until after we left. However, food is delicious and servers are kind.

Went for Valentine's Day and there were a number of issues right from the start. Staff did the bare minimum to rectify the situation. While we understand it was a busy night the service was still far below what we expected. Would not return

Great food and a sleek atmosphere. The bathroom I used was a bit dirty, with dust and water spots all over the photographs on the walls, and there were a couple of slips in the dinner service. Our waiter did not come by for over five minutes at the beginning, and we were thirsty! He also forgot to punch in one of our appetizers, so it had to come with the mains. He was very knowledgeable about the menu, and we enjoyed the cocktails and menu items.

Food was good.
Service was very weird. We have never been told our table was ready and the have the hostess walk away then turn around and point at our table without seating us.
Again, the food was good however one of our mains came out and was completed and then the other didn't arrive until 15 minutes after the first one was done. No explanation, no apology and we didn't even say we were sharing.
Definitely don't need to go back here.

Had a lovely lunch at Stelvio on the weekend. The restaurant was quiet, which suited my daughter and I , so we could talk in a normal voice. Our server ANNA could not have been nicer, and informative and attentive. We started with a cheese tray that included honey and marmalade, very good. My daughter have the squash pasta and I had the pasta ragu, both were excellent. As a side dish we shared a delicious spinach and parmigian dish that I would like to try duplicating at home. I recommend without reservation, and will return.

We had 3 different servers approaching our table. The last one was nice but the first two were just unpleasant. They didn't make recommendations, didn't check up on us, didn't make an effort. The food portions were tiny. I don't mind that, just let your guests know, either by telling them, or by differentiating the price. You can't charge the same price for a dish that is half the size of the other ones.

We let the restaurant know about the birthday we're celebrating, twice. Once ahead of time in our reservation, and second time when we ordered dessert. I hoped they got the hint and would bring the dessert with a candle or anything that's different from the regular way they serve dessert. Not only none of that happened, the espresso came way after we finished the dessert. Just sparkless and disappointing!

Group of 11. Waited a very long time for our meals, which came out one person at a time over a 15-20 minute period. By the time the last couple people got their meals, the first people had finished eating. The food itself was soaked in oil and flavourless. Very disappointing experience.

Hi there, thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. After reading your review we checked with the team internally. Our team confirmed that 2 dishes were delivered to your table with 7 minutes delay and for that we apologize profusely again. We recognized our mistake and for that we didn't to apply the 20% gratuity (for all Toronto's restaurant is mandatory on bills of 10 or more ppl). Again thank you for sharing your thoughts, we wanted to give our account as well. Have a great day!

The food was pretty good but not amazing. The prices are relatively high for what the food is, but it isn’t inordinately expensive. The service was quite good. The metal chair seating is very uncomfortable — they should really upgrade their seating.

Appetizers were great. Rabbit dish was too salty. Pasta dishes, amazing. Customer service was good and ambience was nice.
We were originally seated at the round table near the bar but we moved to the front near the window. We liked it much better.

Suggestions would be make the martinis bigger...I found the value for the size was not there.
