Meet the owner

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.”

Ymmy food, perfect service

We go to Gamberoni a few times a year and it's always an amazing experience. Minestrone is the best in town and the seafood platter for two is just perfect - two kinds of fish, shrimp cooked two ways and the best calamari I've ever had. If you want something really special after dessert, ask Mike (the owner) for "his" coffee - it's espresso with some alcohol in it, not sure what kind, but just the perfect end for a perfect night out.

great service and great value

on what was the last good day to golf it was my turn to treat the boys to dinner. ive heared great things about gamberonis so was just up yonge street decided to give it a try. they were busy on a tuesday night and i mean busy we had to wait in line for a short 5mins so i advise to make reservations. our server one of the sons new we were hungry and suggested an antipasto platter containing of a marinated seafood salad, grilled vegs, italian cold cuts marinated vegs and the best olives ive had in a while. he also suggested the wine of the week which he mentioned was great value. after a good start i told him to bring something out for us family style so we can all pick from. he brought out osso buko a veal shank stew which was so tender and tasty along with home made ravioli stuffed with squash in a rose sauce. we ate like kings. after a couple of great espressos i asked for the bill and since i didnt order anything was expecting a monster but was very impressed on how reasonable the bill was i mean a couple weeks before i spent double with the guys and wasnt satisfied as we were at gamberonis so i recommend gamberonis for a great meal. we had a soprano experience with the checkered table cloths the family speaking italian the four guys are entertainers all of them came to the table and laughed with us real movie experience without the movie tab. AMAZING!

I go to Gamberoni now and again. . The food is fantastic and I never order from the menu. The secret is to ask owner Nick what to eat on that occasion. He always makes a good recommendation such as their best-in-the-city veals. A great place to go for a lazy meal

My Favorite Italian Restaurant

I go to Gamberoni all the time. I take my family, clients and friends. I could eat all of my meals there and wouldn't get tired of it, but I might put on weight if I did. The food is fantastic and I never order from the menu. The secret is to ask owner Nick what to eat on that occasion. He always makes a good recommendation such as sauteed garlic lobster, Adriatic sea bass or their best-in-the-city veals. Their wines aren't too shabby either. They have a lovely Sauvignon Blanc. And if you're a football (soccer) fan, owner Nick supports AC Milan and brother Mike Inter Milan. It is quite funny when they argue with each other about football. All in all, the best restaurant in TO!

This is without a doubt the best "local" restaurant at which I've eaten. The friendly owners and staff combined with great, consistent, yummy food make Gamberoni's the place for a really comfortable, guaranteed enjoyable dinner. Nothing too fancy....just really good food and really good service.

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.

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!!

A comfy, intimate restaurant, Old World Italian. Like a visit to Nonna's place. Outstanding service by Alex..he even opened up a bottle of Primitivo for us (his last bottle) and served it to us by the glass! . That's rare! Food was very tasty and portion size generous. the chef is extremely accommodating with individual requests for small changes. No attitude here (eg. 'no substitutions). Just a genuine desire to please. Value was outstanding. I would go back again and again for a comforting night of home-style, traditional food, served atop the red and white checkered tablecloths. Music was at "talkable" level, and very pleasant. You leave well- fed, feeling very satisfied and with the feeling that you have been well taken care of. What more could you ask for after a long week? Ahh... Cheers Gamberoni! We will see you again! Vicki O
