From the moment you slip into one of the two private dining rooms at this quietly sophisticated Yorkville restaurant until the moment you step back into reality, you are the subject of rare attention to detail. The atmosphere, complete with dancing candlelight, expansive white tablecloths and elegant wall mirrors, is splendid. And the food here is universally praised for its smart presentation and varied considerations of flavours and textures. Generous servings of contemporary Italian cuisine, like carpaccio di manzo and pasta with sweet sausage, get rave reviews. So, too, does the top-notch service that is always attentive and never overbearing. Co-owned by Paolo Paolini and Chef Massimo Capra, Mistura is a dining experience to remember.more...

The food is very close to authentic and I love the fact that everything we ordered came out, well, in order. No one received their food late and we were very well attended to.
Artichokes were fried perfectly and their lamb lollipops were succulent with the minted yogurt sauce. This is probably one of the only places in Toronto where you can sample cinghiale (wild boar) agnolotti. We had a very satisfyingly cooked branzino and rabbit for our mains and finished our meal with excellent affogato. The menu definitely lives up to the famous chef and I will be back again.
I have had the unfortunate experience of going to Mistura 2x. Both times the food was too salty and not well prepared. The pancetta on the cornish hen was almost raw (overwhealming fattyness) and the pineapple dessert was inedible. Additionally, both times resulted in stomach upset - not a good track record if you ask me.
Fresh seasonal ingredients are on the Italian menu in this multi-award-winning restaurant. Chef Klaus Rohrich, a Massimo Capra protégé, uses his talent to transform humble ingredients into dishes inspired by the old world but updated to reflect Toronto’s hottest dining trends. Savour unforgettable flavours in the elegant dining room that flickers with candles. For Winterlicious, menu options include free-range chicken thigh cacciatore with roasted red peppers, mushrooms and cipollini, served with sautéed greens and herb-laced soft polenta and Ontario pear crisp with rolled oats and homespun ice cream.
Celeb chef Massimo Capra boasts creative dishes at this upscale Italian restaurant, with portions that won’t overwhelm. Mistura’s menu changes with the seasons, which makes it a fresh spot to dine. Plus, the meals are so inventive that you wouldn’t find the same elsewhere (think: red beet risotto, squash panna cotta, lamb ribs, popcorn-crusted scallops). With two private dining rooms, Mistura is also a great place for memorable celebrations. For weddings and corporate events, head upstairs to Sopra, a more private venue, complete with the same delicious food, plus music and entertainment options.
Summerlicious returns to Toronto July 8, running its smorgasbord of food-loving fun until July 24. If there's a restaurant you've had your eye on, this is the opportunity to give it a try. Restaurants tout three-course dinner in various price brackets for the two weeks of the festival. Here are the $48 spots! [Feature image: America; courtesy of the City of Toronto]
