Last evening Acqua Dolce 5 gal cousins out for dinner. It was a fabulous, fun event!! From the time we walked into the restaurant we were greeted with the warmest welcome..AND A RED PIANO! Loved the atmosphere. Chef Amelia Monteleone gave us a detailed description of menu selections. We chose based on her advice..polenta fries gnocchi black cod..beef tenderloin DELICIOUS! She and her team went out of their way for us. The midas touch when it comes to PARAMOUNT CUSTOMER SERVICE. WE WILL BE BACK

As we 1st walked into the restaurant, my group...

As we 1st walked into the restaurant, my group was very well greeted by the General Manager. We were seated in a booth over looking Lake Ontario. "WOW", it was an truly an amazing few. Nothing beats having dinner and watch the Airplanes landing onto Toronto Island with the sun-setting as the back drop. The GM came over to settle us into the restaurant offering us some apéritif before taking our food orders. She tempted us with the great options for our meals & we heed her advices. Soon after our orders, the server brought us our bread. Most restaurants you'll get some kind of bread and Oil but at Gossip, we got a trio of breads and trio of dips. Our apps came shortly after and the mains after the apps. Food was great, very good value for the buck. Service overall was amazing ! It's a hidden gem tucked away at the CNE grounds. We'll be sure to visit again when we are in town.

We were a group of 7. Waitress got order completely wrong, even though we begged her to write it down. Bar was unstocked. No vermouth, no olives.. Food came out at random odd times, one person got appetizer and cold main served together 20 min before anyone else was served. Then some people got mains and some people got appetizers- food came out in dribs and drabs, no one was served at same time- some people never got their main because waitress forgot the order- some people never got their appetizer. Pizza's weren't the ones we ordered. It was actually ridiculous. Food was mediocre at best. Bathrooms had no paper towel and no hand dryer! (smelled of urine). There was a line up of tables trying to pay because there was only one credit card machine. Unfortunate because pretty location. I have never published a review, but this restaurant does not have it's act together. Terrible experience!

Service was fantastic!! Irina was just lovely and made our evening!! We would return just for her. The restaurant setting is very nice. Suggestions for improvement: pizza was cold, bar was poorly stocked (no bourbon, no sambucca, only one type of wine, no espresso). Also the music was obviously a free playlist because it was periodically interrupted with loud advertisements.

A lovely quiet place during the madness of the CNE. Great decor and views of lake. Our server, Nita, was excellent! We loved the apple, fennel salad. The pizza was OK, not enough on it, gnocchi was good. Chef came out to answer a question and she was delightful. Overall a very good experience.

The service and food were both great! Friendly staff. There are only 2 choices for wine but both the white and red were good. The location was great for dinner before a show at the Budweiser stage. We will definitely return.

Had a reservation for a Saturday night and when we got there found out a private party was going on but we could still eat there. Weren’t allowed to sit on the patio. Lots of noise and kids running around. They could have called and let us know the situation. Food great but would not return. Also, it’s Italian restaurant with pasta on the menu but they didn’t have any because of the private party.

An absolutely FANTASTIC evening. From the time we entered this uniquely lovely restaurant, it's beautiful RED piano, we KNEW we had selected very well. Being on the CNE grounds with a view of the lake, an added bonus. Executive Chef Amelia and her TEAM, Customer Service at it's finest. They all had a key role to play in making this evening memorable. The meal selections,we thought who best to choose for us...none other than Executive Chef AMELIA. EXCELLENT!! Appetizers..polenta fries/apple fennel salad..mains black cod, gnocchi, beef tenderloin. Everything was DELICIOUS!!! Cheers to Acqua Dolce, Amelia and her team. We will be back!!!!!!

We dined prior a concert for one of our party’s birthday. The food was excellent but a little pricey for the portion size. Our waitress was obviously new and confused easily, the decor was a little tired and it felt more like a banquet venue then a restaurant. But the most impressive thing was when the chef came out with proseco to celebrate the birthday with us & we all toasted the birthday girl - that was a really nice touch!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME! From the menu on their website and the printed version provided, there was only about 1/3 of the items! When we asked they said they are only open 3 days a week - we got up and left “a very empty restaurant”! DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME PEOPLE”

Loved our meal (our two apps were very good, boarding on excellent and the entrees were good). The service was poor to be fair: slow and incorrect orders were originally brought by our server (she was new and somewhat out of her comfort zone). Senior staff at the restaurant corrected the issue and then check on us numerous times during our meal (nice recovery from my perspective). The location was idea as the restaurant is within walking distance to both Budweiser Stage and Queen Elisabeth Theatre (we were going to Budweiser Stage, long walk after dinner to get to the show). My wife and I are willing to give this restaurant a second chance, the redeeming feature was the quality of food and senior staffs reaction to our issues.
