This is the quaint and distinguished Italian restaurant. The ambiance isvery nice, the service was remarkable and the food was outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes genuine Italian food .
Very cozy neighborhood Italian bistro. Food isn't gourmet, but everything on the menu is excellent. Always dependable. Love the grilled Caesar and the Bolognese sauce is terrific, a sign of a caring kitchen. Owner and staff always attentive. Lots of street parking on Jones or Queen.
Cute, cozy place. Great service, good affordable food. Area is a bit sketchy but would certainly try to go here again when visiting the city.
Once again, a charming visit to Aprile Bambina Cucina. This is a great restaurant in the Gerrard & Jones area. Not expensive but never compromising on quality. It is a fairly small room so I would advise making reservations. We started with a couple of shared appetizers. We ordered a grilled caesar salad - which I believe is a signature dish - more than enough to split 3 ways and as always, delicious. We also ordered a charcuterie plate - split 4 ways - also delicious with a really nice choice of meats & cheeses. All 4 entrees were done to perfection. A couple of bottles of Valpolicella to wash it all down and we were all happy. Service was very good, attentive but not overbearing. A great night out with friends. Lastly, be sure to check their website for specials. My favourite being Tuesdays but you'll have to check it out to find out why.
We enjoyed a great dinner at April Bambina Cucina. Food & service both excellent.
Absolutely fabulous. Will definitely come here often and recommend to friends
Loved the whole dinner! A new favourite restaurant...
Wednesday Date Night - excellent value menu - pasta sauce (spaghettini Bolognese) was a little spicy for our taste, but good flavour nonetheless. This is our favourite restaurant, hands down.
Jackie provided excellent service. The lasagna was excellent as always, but my boyfriend was not a big fan of the spaghetti and meatballs. He found that the sauce was runny. I enjoyed my meal :o) Thank you, Tiana Rose
This is my fourth time here and it didn't disappoint. My husband and I are considering going once a month for date night, that's how good the food is. Service was great. Would highly recommend.
8 Guests?!? No, we went up to 12 by the time Saturday arrived... And Marco and the staff coped with it, and took care of everything as though it were commonplace. The understanding they offered to our gang celebrating a family's co-birthday was outstanding, considering that about a third of the gang were vegan. There was no rushing, just attentive service for an ebullient group of folks who don't seem to be able to get together often enough, and used the restaurant like their own home... And I should mention that Marco handled our request for corkage on some old bottles of wine? Very cooperative.
We love Aprile Bambino Cucina! We stumbled upon it because it looks charming and the experience did not disappoint. Wonderful service from the owners, great food, and a really warm atmosphere. The food is consistently good - the pizzas and the gnocchi are particular favourites. The backyard patio in the summer has a vibe I love.
My husband and I had a wonderful dinner here l last night. We loved the dining room which was cozy and comfortable with nice music and bright red chairs. The antipasti platter was a very generous and delicious assortment of meat, cheese, olives and pear. The spicy meat pizza and braised beef cheek pasta were also fantastic. Our server was friendly and helpful. Overall a great experience and we'll definitely be back again soon.
A hidden gem, love it definiately returning.
Very nice meal in a great atmosphere.
Good Food. Good Service. Now our favourite Italian restaurant. Would definitely go back.
Always great. Lovely neighbourhood feel. Very friendly and attentive staff.
Always great food and service!
Had a great time, w/ terrific food & very friendly service. I will most definitely be going there again in the very near future. Highly recommend.
Fabulous!! Will definitely visit again.
Another wonderful dinner with friends in the charming Aprile Bambina Cucina.
Food and service were great and we have a lovely time. We will be back!
Great food and service. We will be back!

This trattoria is a charming place to take your date or come with family, with its darling Italian-pride decor and lovely patio. They have so many pasta and pizza dishes to choose from with red and white wine to match. Try wine with citrus, vanilla, fruit, floral and spicy tastes. Most come by the bottle, but some can also be ordered by half-bottle or by the glass.View this Smart List
