Usually go to Fol...

Usually go to Folcos for lunch when the food and service are excellent. Went for dinner at 8pm. Long wait for anyone to greet me at the door. Long wait to get anyone to take my order. Food - lemon chicken and escargots appetizer were excellent. No refill of water until meal was finished and I asked. Long wait after meal was completed. No one ever asked how the meal was. Bill was presented before I had a chance to order a coffee and to see a dessert menu. Ordered a coffee and a lemon gelato and received orange. Finished coffee - no refill. Still waiting for bill as I write this.

Tastes Like Italy!

We had the best Thin crusted Pizza ever! We tried Folco's at lunch last week...they said they bring in there own Flour from Naples, Italy for there Pizza......So we were so impressed by the taste, atmosphere and the service, we went back for Dinner. Well, I don't know about you but Folco's is a "Gem" of a Ristorante, in Markham...........the Specials were verbally told to us and that made it even more cosy. It's a 2 room dinning area, with warming Italian music, and the pasta tasted so much like my grandmother's! Make sure you reserve a table.....I know I'm going to bring all my family, friends and business associates..........Bravo Folco's!!....Bravo!

The Best!

Simply the best Italian restaurant in Markham! Very nice ambience with excellent service. I have had large group events and couple deals at Folco's and this restaurant always rises to the occasion. Thanks!

Always excellent

Over the last few years my wife and I have been to Folco's half a dozen times and have never been disappointed. The calamari appetizer is probably the best calamari we have ever had. None of the entrees have ever disappointed - the handmade pastas, fish, veal, or lamb. The service is always great. Every time we're tempted to go downtown Toronto for a nice meal, we think... why? with Folco's right around the corner. Last time we were there, we paid about $160 for 2, including appetizers, entrees, 1/2 L wine, dessert, coffees and tip.

Its good, but not great.

Everything about this restaurant is good. But its not the best. Expect fresh, tasty food, with a nice setting, and good service. Its family run, but its nothing exceptional. Stick to the pasta dishes.

I've been to Folco's several time and have never been disappointed by the food or service until our most recent visit. We were seated on the patio and the waitress actually used our menus to brush crumbs off the table right in front of us. The penne was bland and had about a third as much prosciutto as it did on my previous visits. My girlfriend said her fettucine was dry and tasted like michelinas. A few friends had mentioned similar complaints recently that I didn't listen to but I'm sorry I didn't

A Candlelight Feast Six of us were on our way...

A Candlelight Feast Six of us were on our way to Folco’s shortly after a brief but violent storm had ripped through the GTA. Were we crazy to drive all that way on a stormy night? Some of the stop lights were out on Highway 48. “How if the restaurant has no power?” we said jokingly as we drove. And when we arrived, guess what – the restaurant had no power. But Folco’s had risen to the challenge. As we were welcomed at the door, we were advised that we would need cash to pay for our meal, since the credit card machines were not working. We counted up our cash and found that between us we could just manage it. The restaurant was lit by candles, creating a gracious ambience, though as it got darker outside it became difficult to see – this was more of a problem for the wait staff than for us. In the kitchen they were cooking by gas – a few menu items, like calamari, that require electricity were unavailable. No electricity also meant no air conditioning. We heard that it was a hundred degrees in the kitchen, and still the cooks kept cooking and the meals kept coming. There are several good cooks among the six of us, and when we go out to eat our expectations are high. Here are our individual critiques: “The appetizers were good” – we shared bruschetta and a seafood platter. “My veal chop was cooked just as requested and the accompanying gnocchi was perfect.” “A couple of us ate the Asiago Pasta dish. It was so good, but then I find their pasta dishes are always good, mainly because the pasta is always freshly homemade. What a difference!” “I had the Veal Marsala – something I don’t cook at home. It came with a fine pasta (angel hair?), cooked to perfection.” “I like their seafood pasta dishes and their ‘catch of the day’ type meals. Their Italian wines are always excellent, especially the red wines.” Folco's has a compact list of well-selected wines. “The wait staff are always so attentive and helpful and no slouch at their job. In this instance they outdid themselves because of the power situation, and the staff, especially in the kitchen, is to be commended.” Without electricity, coffee and tea were impracticable, and under the circumstances the restaurant did not offer dessert. But we had eaten and drunk well and were satisfied. A memorable evening indeed!

A Nightmare!!!! We had my daughter's Communion...

A Nightmare!!!! We had my daughter's Communion party there early this past Saturday evening. Upon our arrival, the restaurant had no power yet they did not explain how the evening would be altered. We sat there for over an hour with just drinks!! By then it became dark out. My guests (totaling 19) with babies and the elderly became anxious due to the poor air quality from the lack of ventilation and the heat from the tea lights. I had to remind the owner/server to serve the food. During dessert/gift opening, we needed the lantern to be able to see the gifts and each other's faces, however the lantern was promptly taken away with 5 minutes of use with no explanation. Upon raising this issue with the owner, I was told that the lantern was needed to prepare for the next day's functions. Well what about my function????!!!!These people couldn't have given a damn about us. We felt very rushed as they kept clearing the tables and removing cutlery and water glasses. Never mind the fact that coffee was not an option due to the power outage. Shouldn't a restaurant conducting business at least be backed by a generator??!! When it came time to settle the bill they made no attempts to apologize for the pathetic service, the poor air quality and the lack of light. Although we paid our entire bill without any discount, we communicated our disappointment with the owner after our guests shared their negative experience with us. Unfortunately Mario (the owner)did not see it our way and didn't apologize. Aside from the fact that the food was adequate my event was ruined. My daughter deserved a much better evening. Do yourself a favor: DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY AT THIS SMALLTIME RESTAURANT.

The service was excellent; the staff were extremely pleasant and amiable. Our waiter made excellent suggestions and very helpful. The food was fantastic; I ordered the veal strip with gnochi special, and it was better than what you'd get at a stakehouse; not to mention the generous helping of pasta. Recommend this for anyone looking for a great value meal and wonderful night out.

Memories of Tuscany

One of the best meals we have had since we were in Italy. Great ambiance, excellant service. The chicken was out of this world. Lamb was done to perfection with a delicious crust. pasta are made in house, sauces are authenic. You can smell the aromas throughout the restaurant. Cant't wait to return

Homemade pasta

Such a romantic restaurant which is good for couples to enjoy their meals here. Overall, Fresh Mussels was the best among the things that I have ordered. Pasta was good but not the best unfortunately. The waiters were nice and caring. In addition, remember to ask for the daily special, they have really a lot specials that were not printed in the menu.

Excellent service, good food and ambience

We were six friends having a reunion. The staff greeted us as we entered and gave us a good table. Service was attentive throughout. The waitress made good wine suggestions with the different entrees. The food was well prepared and served promptly. Chef Mario Folco came to our table near the end of dinner to inquire about everything and posed for a group picture with us.

The Best!

This was the best restaurant we have been to in a long time. We usually go downtown for a nice meal. Not anymore, this is our new favorite place. The food is to die for, the ambiance is so comforting.
