    December 2012 - Pricey, but great

    I'm surprised this restaurant only has a 3-star rating average. It is definitely overpriced, but definitely worth it for a splurge. Arugula salad and soup were good, but the real winner was the osso bucco pasta. I honestly can't remember when I had Italian food this good. One of my new fave places for a splurge, despite the priciness.

    amazing

    Wow, all I have to say.. food was amazing I went with 4 of my friends and everything we got was perfect. The pizza is was great pasta was cooked to perfection I recommend the butternut squash ravioli. I have no complaints my waiter was hilarious and very attentive and had a great knowledge of wine. They had a lovely guitarist playing and singing songs all evening. The ambiance was absolutely spectacular. I will be back and will recommend this to anyone who enjoys fine foods and a beautiful atmosphere

    Went for a birthday party, we didn't get the area we reserved. Our drink order took over 30 minutes to take and deliver. The waiter seemed "lost". When the reservation was made we were told we could get a particular item off the munch menu for dinner. The waiter argued with us to the point we had to ask to speak to the manager. The pasta was of perfect tenderness, but over priced for the serving size. Overall, a huge disappointment for all.

    Great place for a nice lunch, quiet setting with attentive staff made it a perfect choice for business. Outside seating is available but I did not find it very inviting, too close to the road and without any buffers, a few plants may have worked along with a little extra TLC.

    First time attending this restaurant. Warm and cozy ambience, courteous, polite and prompt but not rushing service although our visit was on a Wednesday evening so it was not terribly busy. Everyone in my party of 4 ordered a different entrée and each were equally pleased.

    We opted for the patio as it was such a nice day but quite noisy as right on Lakeshore Blvd. Food excellent! Service okay but it was busy for them running between the restaurant and the patio!

    The food and the service were first rate; the food was very fresh and tasty and the service was attentive yet unobtrustive--an ideal combination. The restaurant is an ideal "trattoria" serving wonderful Italian meals. Athough it was quite busy (and somewhat noisy) when we arrived about three minutes after our reservation time of 1:00 p.m., we were seated immediately and did not wait very long for the server to come by and ask what we might like to drink. A very pleasant and enjoyable Wednesday lunch in Long Branch!

    Busy evening with summerlicious so service was less attentive than I expected. Boar dish was divine, black squid pasta with seafood was delicious but the al dente. Pasta was a bit tough. Desserts we're truly mouth watering. We also had the lowest price red and it paired with our meal perfectly. A gem in Etobicoke! Thanks to Summerlicious that made it more affordable.
