Calamari to die for

This is such a terrific restaurant and I luckily live just around the corner. My favourite food item by far is their calamari - it is different from the surrounding restaurants because it just seems so much more fresh. Their pizza is thin crust and delicious also. So happy I live where I do so I can come here frequently...

Best food & service in Toronto

Went here with four girls last week to celebrate a 30th birthday for our friend! We had a fantastic time. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was comfortable, and the service was very attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone celebrating a special occasion or even just for dinner on a regular night. I know we all enjoyed our meals but I think what I loved the most were the Mussels, fresh in a white wine sauce... For my main I had spaghetti with meatballs! Saw that it came in a tomato sauce and I just couldn't resist. Overall a fantastic experience -- we all left full & extremely satisfied.

I didn't like the food at all, I heard the gnocchi there was good but to me it was tasteless. The seafood pasta wasn't too good either. The salad was good.

Night out with the ladies!Big thanks to the Management

Having spent a night out with my friends, I was impressed from start to finish. The management really took care of us. We had a set menu for over 20 people, he took time to meet with me and organize a set menu that met my needs for the event. The servers went out of there way to put up flowers at our table for my birthday event. The food was amazing and came out at perfect timing, I can't express how wonderful my time here in Toronto has been. I would definitely come back to the Standard and reccomend this location to family and friends! Thanks

Best Italian Food & Atmosphere

Two Thumbs up for this place!!!Went there last night with a party of 6 and was seated on the patio. Server was very friendly and helpful.Food was fantastic.Pizza was thin crust and absolutely delicious.Reminds me of a recent trip to Naples Italy. Friends ordered pasta dishes and fish and rave about the quality and quantity. Planning a return visit before I leave the city!!!!

I would like to be able to really write a review for this restaurant, but unfortunately I can't. You see after being ignored for ten minutes at our table, we thought better of our decision and left. So I can't tell you if the overpriced pizzas were worth paying top dollar, whether the crumbed veal was as dry and shrivelled as it appeared on the table next to us, or whether the house wine was palatable or undrinkable muck. Luckily we didn't disturb the staff's routine as they served friends, flirted with other patrons, or stood around looking bored.

Nice summer place

Great summer patio with nice ambiance. Patio was full when we got there but we waited inside while various staff assured us that the wait would be short....and it was. The food was good, not outstanding, salad was very fresh as was the bread. Pizza was decent but they used jalapeno peppers for the heat....a little disappointing. Our server was excellent and very attentive to our needs. Overall, a great patio on College Street.

HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT!

I came here on a quietish night for dinner, the servers were very nice but seemed pre-occupied and harrassed by the manager. When we asked for the cheque he screamed for a server to 'get over here!' from where she was busy with a table outside. It was very embarassing but the girl claimed he was always like that. The lady running the bar was equally as rude when we asked for a drink we had ordered 30 mins ago. The food was pretty bad - dry lasagne with no bechamel or flavour for that matter. I would advise to steer clear (and that's for the poor servers to!)

STAY AWAY!!!

Visited during Little Italy Festival expecting great ambiance and good food. Chaos ensued! A sudden shower resulted in the manager moving a large tarp in off the street and onto the patio, thereby rudely displacing a number of guests, without so much as an apology. In order to leave, I had to go inside, locate the waiter and ask for the check, which took 15 minutes to be manually created. When I expressed concern about the experience the comment was a resigned, "that's my manager, I just work for him". Chaotic and inhospitable- spoilt our day!

VERY PLEASANT LUNCH

Loved sitting on the patio in the sun drinking a very nice house wine (a bit overpriced however). The mussels were the best i've ever had with tomato and garlic sauce. The bread was good for dipping in the sauce. The pizza was fine but not outstanding. Good though. I'd order exactly the same meal again. And our waitress was extremely attentive and charming.

We sat upstairs and our waiter was extremely attentive - in fact, the reason for a 9 is that he nearly bordered on bothersome! The food was delicious and the atmosphere was nice, relaxing. Will definitely go back.

Wonderful restaurant! Very cheap. Pizzas are extremely large. Bring your significant other and share a pizza (you should each get your own salad though). The pizza is very cheap!

That's amore! Fall in love with these Little Italy pizzerias

While there are many pizza parlours to choose from in Little Italy, your stop at The Standard will be worth it. There's a great balance of quality and quantity at this restaurant. Stop by for a martini and a delicious pizza while taking in the stylish and comfortable atmosphere. Pizza is on special for three days of the week at not to be passed up.
