Waited to long before anybody came to table. (35 min) Ordered wine when server came & told her if wine doesnt arrive in 2 min. then were gone. Wine bottle did arrive in 2 min. But then an unnecessary wait for food to arrive. Wild Boar seemed non-existent in main dish. Had to change price on bill for wine.( charged for 1 L instead of 750ml) Service definitely needs improvement.( Pour wine into our glasses during meal & ask us how the food is during meal)

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.

I had made a reservation for 2 on Christmas Eve and confirmed it by calling in during lunch hours. However, when we arrived at the restaurant, it was closed. There was no prior notice, and we were just left hanging in front of the restaurant. We weren't the only ones; there were a few other people who also came, only to find the restaurant completely empty and dark. This type of service is unacceptable and we will never be going back or recommending this place to anyone.

This was our first time dining at Pucinella's and we loved it! The service was friendly, professional and prompt. The ambiance warm and inviting. And the piece de resistance was the food. Absolutely delicious and very authentic. We booked our next reservation as we left the restaurant. Highly recommend it.

We have dined here before and loved it. Our second visit was even more memorable than the first. We live in Cambridge and now I will find any excuse to go to Etobicoke in order to have another delicious dinner. Thank you for the fantastic time.

Terrific food was the saving grace for our evening that was just riddled with very poor service, too many instances to list here. If I could remove the one star, above, for service I would but your rating system won’t allow removal. Hoping it was a one off night because all of the servers needed service training. The food was wonderful, once our server could figure out which table it belonged to, however we may give it one more try.

We called and were told we did not need a reservation, but make one anyway and they received an email that the restaurant was closed. Glad that we make the on line reservations since we would have arrived at a closed restaurant. The staff should be better informed of the opening/closing hours of the restaurant.
