This place is closed. Still lets you make reservations online & by phone (and confirms them!) so we showed up to an empty restaurant. Kind of a dick move, guys.

Are you kidding me? You took reservation for July 18. The restaurant closed in June. The place doesn't exist any more. What a joke !!!

Restaurant was closed down. Windows covered in brown paper. Why is this site still taking reservations? Nothing on the restaurant website either. What a shame. This was our go-to Italian restaurant.

This restaurant is closed. It should be removed from your website. There is nothing to say that the restaurant is closed on their own website but when you get there the windows are covered in paper. Our evening was a great disappointment. I had to rate each category with one star as this website would not allow me to leave them out. Obviously I would give them no stars.

Was great until we arrived to only find out after we had paid for parking that they had closed down - not just for the evening but permanently. Apparently they are no longer servicing genuine Italian cooking as the restaurant is permanently closed.

We've been going to Aprile Bambina Cucina for years. We particularly liked the atmosphere on the back patio and always loved the extremely welcoming manager and wait staff. Things have changed. There is new staff (who were very good) but the patio is diminished - no checked table cloths, parts of tables piled up in the middle of the patio, and a broken door to the back lane that flaps in the wind. Ambiance is greatly diminished. The menu has always been low on options for vegetarians but what was there was great. This time we received the strangest and least authentic margherita pizza ever. Looked more like a cheese pie from a pizzeria. The appetizers were up to the old standard but the bread was not. It was all ok. But miss the old days.

We eat here two or three times a year. This time for a family birthday. Great service, love the 1/2 price wine on Tuesdays. And we particularly like how many GF pizza and pasta choices there are. Parents and teens all had a great time last week. We will definitely be back and recommend to friends and family.

I was craving Italian food and visited this place with a close friend of mine. I ordered the lobster and crab ravioli which was absolutely amazing and the pomodori bruschetta was delicious. What made this experience better was the staff themselves. Our servers were very attentive and always made sure our water glasses were full and came by several times to ensure we were content with everything. I would be more than happy to recommend this establishment to anymore and will most definitely return.

Very cozy neighborhood Italian bistro. Food isn't gourmet, but everything on the menu is excellent. Always dependable. Love the grilled Caesar and the Bolognese sauce is terrific, a sign of a caring kitchen. Owner and staff always attentive. Lots of street parking on Jones or Queen.

Once again, a charming visit to Aprile Bambina Cucina. This is a great restaurant in the Gerrard & Jones area. Not expensive but never compromising on quality. It is a fairly small room so I would advise making reservations. We started with a couple of shared appetizers. We ordered a grilled caesar salad - which I believe is a signature dish - more than enough to split 3 ways and as always, delicious. We also ordered a charcuterie plate - split 4 ways - also delicious with a really nice choice of meats & cheeses. All 4 entrees were done to perfection. A couple of bottles of Valpolicella to wash it all down and we were all happy. Service was very good, attentive but not overbearing. A great night out with friends. Lastly, be sure to check their website for specials. My favourite being Tuesdays but you'll have to check it out to find out why.

Wednesday Date Night - excellent value menu - pasta sauce (spaghettini Bolognese) was a little spicy for our taste, but good flavour nonetheless. This is our favourite restaurant, hands down.

Jackie provided excellent service. The lasagna was excellent as always, but my boyfriend was not a big fan of the spaghetti and meatballs. He found that the sauce was runny. I enjoyed my meal :o) Thank you, Tiana Rose

This trattoria is a charming place to take your date or come with family, with its darling Italian-pride decor and lovely patio. They have so many pasta and pizza dishes to choose from with red and white wine to match. Try wine with citrus, vanilla, fruit, floral and spicy tastes. Most come by the bottle, but some can also be ordered by half-bottle or by the glass.
