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.

This was out first time there. Delicious calamari and arancini. Pizza was delicious, especially the crust, crispy yet tender and flavourful. We will definitely go back.

Sorry to have to say it, but the food is not good, service was pleasant but slow and inattentive. Unfortunate. I read reviews in the hopes of knowing where to go, so I wanted to write this one so that other people can avoid the same mistake. Lots of good restaurants in Toronto, so no need to pay for anything less.

First server seemed very friendly, but they switched multiple time throughout the night making it hard to get anyone’s attention and they didn’t come to check how our meals were after being served. Servers seemed annoyed when we asked to order dessert.

The food was mediocre and arrived cold. The waitress was pleasant at the beginning of the meal but was suddenly very rude at the end, to the point my husband was asking me if he thinks we had upset her somehow. Overall, not a great experience.

Overall very good laid back and pleasant atmosphere. The food was mostly good, a couple of the appetizers were OK but most of it was pretty tasty. Wine is decently prized. Overall I would give it a 4.5 rating.

I was called about 2 hours after I made my reservation, which was same day and told the restaurant wouldn’t be open that day for service. I’m not quite sure why they would accept reservations if they weren’t going to be open.

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.

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.

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
