It was a quiet night since Mirvish is closed, and we were seated in the front window. The passing parade was fascinating and the food and service were excellent!

I choose Il Fornello because this was a meal before a Mirvish performance so i did not have a lot of time and I had 2 young picky eaters with me and I figure there was no point in taking them to a fancy restaurant. Il Fornello offers your standard Italian fare and amazing Pizza. The kids loved their pasta pomodoro and I loved my pizza funghi. The service was professional, and quick and met my expectations.

Cannelloni could use a little more sauce. Everything was tasty. Server did a great job assisting 2 of our family members who were late due to traffic. We finished dessert while she brought them their main course. All of us got to the theatre on time. Thank you.

Service was great! The waitress was happy to give the 4 of us a second basket of complimentary bread and knew exactly what to recommend on the wine menu. Two of us are vegan and we were thrilled to see such a large vegan menu! We loved the arancini the most. We'll be back soon!

We had dinner at Il Fornello in Toronto with friends before seeing a play at the Princess of Whales Theater. We organized a 5:45pm reservation for our 7:30pm show. This restaurant is a great choice as it is a 2 minute walk from the theater. Plus, service was very prompt and friendly. We were extremely satisfied with our dinner presentation and quality. All members of our party couldn't stop saying how delicious everything was! I would absolutely eat here again. Thank you for such a great experience!

Timely service and food prep allowed us to get to a performance in good time without rushing to eat. Slightly fishy smell in the restaurant made us wonder at the freshness of the fish so we opted for other menu items.
