Went with a group of 10 people and were the only couple to request a separate bill. We had a reason to do so. We were told by our server that they had a policy against this. The place was 1/3 full. We simply separated our table from the rest by 6 inches. The food was adequate at best but the attitude on our server was unbelievable. It's called "the service industry" for a reason. We do not have extreme expectations, nor are we demanding consumers. A little common sense and courtesy go a long way. We experienced neither here. College Street in general is ripe with this kind of garbage.

Great atmosphere, delicious pizzas, reasonably priced. My husband and I were heading to another restaurant in Little Italy & liked the look of this one instead. We were definitely pleased we chose it.

Amazing home style italian food. FOcaccia, even though not in the menu, is a must. Subtle yet tasty, it melts in your mouth without loosing the crispiness of the crust. Good food, perfect serving size.

Very nice place, the service was good, we had a few starters (Parmigiana and Arancini) and a pizza. We have concluded our dinner with a Delicious tiramisù.

This is a restaurant of which we are regulars. We have always been very happy with atmosphere, hospitable welcome, and service. The food is consistently great, in particular the pizza. The patio in the summer is laid back and enjoyable. Inside dining room is very nice all year round. Looking forward to dining at Il gatto nero again soon.

Really enjoyed our dinner. Server was "programmed" to serve us quickly given we were going to the shoe within the hour. Thanks very much!

We enjoyed a wonderful evening over delicious Italian food in Little Italy, Toronto. We ordered a mushroom bruschetta goat cheese salad, penne and pizza. We thought we might save some for the next day, but we ate the whole thing. Great wine too.

The atmosphere was so so, the patio is a little dimly lit and the first chair I had rocked side to side. Thankfully, the owner was sitting at a nearby table and suggested I grab a chair from a different table which was unoccupied (Service!). Our server was cheerful and helpful and I could not have expected more. The food was alright. I had the Amatriciana and my lady had the Pesto e Pinoli. The Amatriciana was okay and while Pesto e Pinoli is not my thing, my lady thought it could have used more pinoli (pine nuts). The bruschetta was good and the caprese was okay. The caprese could have used more salt. Overall it was solid but not spectacular

Very pleasant family oriented neighborhood restaurant. Had to leave for a concert or we all could have stayed for the evening enjoying excellent, modestly priced wine and great espresso. Had a great time.

We made a reservation (and received confirmation) a few days before going: which they didn't have on our arrival. They did create a table for 6 in a few minutes and the service was great! Everyone enjoyed their food and the atmosphere.

Food and service was good but the restaurant was uncomfortably cold. We had to leave our winter coats on. Not what you want!

Nice atmosphere and friendly service but an underwhelming menu. Everything was just ok. All five of us had pasta dishes and when the waitress asked if we wanted some parmigiano she proceeded to set a glass bawl shaker on a table for us to sprinkle cheese on our pasta. Not what you would expect from an Italian restarunat on College st. Great spot and they have a nice patio but unfortunately I wouldn't eat here again.
