There’s so much richness in Italian cuisine, a restaurateur could be forgiven for trying to serve it all. Mike Colombaro, however, decided to focus the cuisine of Gamerboni Restaurant exclusively on Italian seafood. Since opening his restaurant in 1986, Mike has perfected his signature dish: Casseruola di mare (casserole of the sea). “You get the different shellfish,” he explains, “and a tomato sauce, basil, olive oil…and the pasta, it’s made with the same sauce as the fish.”

If that’s not enough to lure you in, Gamerboni’s calamari and scallops will. Each dish is cooked with the finest attention to detail by an Italian-born chef, making diners feel like they’re vacationing along the Adriatic Coast. And if you get to chatting with Mike, he’ll let you in on his personal recommendations. “My favourite dish right now is called the linguine Gamberoni,” he shares. “It’s garlic linguine with just scallops over pasta, with garlic, olive oil, a touch of chilli.”

i would like to start with saying that i have written a few reviews now on this site and this is the first time i have given a perfect score. The atmosphere is very rustic and homey, the garlic smell makes you hungry no need for an aperitif. One of the owners sits you down and then what appears to be his son comes and greets you with a smile along with menus and wine list. Great bottle of chianti off the menu but very reasonable at 36$ then after trusting him on the wine the whole meal was ordered by the waiter and he did not disappoint. Amazing dinner, enjoyed the ambiance, the music was great the feel in the room was great. Enjoyed the meal a true italian experience.

I lunch and dine at Gamberoni all the time. When asked, I tell people that I could have every meal there and never get tired of the food. They always have new dishes, the two owners and their staff are very friendly and the service is superb. It's simply one of the best restaurants in Toronto and not too pricey.

What a lovely neighbourhood Italian restaurant. Small and cozy with great service. Lots on menu to choose from, plus extras on the chalk board, and pasta was cooked to perfection.

Our waiter even came back to us once he realized we had accidentally paid the wrong total (2 bottles of wine instead of 1). We appreciated the honesty.

Nice restaurant! Our waiter was very attentive and pleasant. The food was mediocre. The bread was very good. I had lasagna which was just OK! My friend had the veal which was delicious, the accompanying vegetables were cooked perfectly however the side of spaghetti was bland.

You do not dine at Gamberoni's for the service, or the décor, but for the food. The owner who is also the host and waiter, can be rude, and inattentive but really it's not intentional. He is busy and he is doing it all. He is the one man show at Gamberoni's. If you can't get past the crusty and abruptness of the server/host, then don't eat there- but food is to die for and consistently delicious!!
