I love their pizza. It is a real thin crust one with a very good taste and texture. I do not like the servers over there, they are all in a hurry with 0 smiles on their face.

Excellent place for over 10 years

I am a local and I know places in this city. I am a regular. There is no way, unless someone is arrogant and unpleasant with the staff, they would act that way. They have always been extremely nice, that's why I keep on coming back a couple of times a month for 10 years. Needless to say, the food is great!

I don't understand the recent bad reviews here. My wife and I visit Cafe Nervosa on a regular basis. We always are greeted with great service and an excellent dining experience at affordable pricing. It especially great during the summer when you can dine alfresco.

Aweful Experience! Will Never Return!

The worst service and rudest management anywhere! I just spent lunch (or tried to) at Cafe Nervosa. We ordered, and waited, and waited, and waited. People to the left and right of us got served, and we just waited for our food. We spoke to our waiter, he said the kitchen is busy due to large groups (but that didn't explain why others got their food). We spoke to the manager, and he told us 'If you want to eat, then you wait". The manager was rude, arrogant, and snarky. Our food finally arrived. Looked beautiful. Tasted nice; but we had to get back to work after having waited so long, that we just got up and left. WE WILL NEVER RETURN!

A horrible experience and very rude management

This is not my first time at Cafe Nervosa, however it will be the LAST. We have waited for our food over an hour. When we finally asked the owner, he was the rudess, most arogant restaurant owner I ever met. Not only that he didn't care (both about the wait, or that we were hungry, or that we needed to return to work.. but he didn't even care if we will return). Interesting, we are very reasonable people and all we needed would have been an apology, instead we were treated with an unbelievable arrogance and rudness.. he didn't care, after all the restaurant was busy, he is making lots of money and he is in a prime location, so he didn't think he needs to bother with us. Well, we will never go there again and we will make sure all our friends and coworkers know about this experience!

The evening spent at Caf? Nervosa was time well spent. When we arrived the person at the door made us feel like we had walked into an Italian family home. We were offered 3 choices for patios which were all beautiful and had excellent views of the action in Yorkville. The service was great, the food was awesome and the atmosphere was welcoming. I can?t wait to get back to Toronto to return and try some more dishes.

I love Cafe Nervosa, every time I go there I am treated like family. Their salads are great, especially the seafood salad, but my favourite is the mixed platter of appetizers that I like to share with friends over a great glass of Shiraz. My favourite place to sit is on the second floor patio - I really believe it is one of the best patios in the city. Great views of Yorkville, especially nice on a warm summer night. All in all, I hightly recommend this place, not only for the food, but for the amazing family atmosphere.

The food was okay. The service is a different story. My employer and I waited quite a while to get served and our pizzas were a little on the cold side. When we had finished eating we were still polishing off a bottle of mineral water when the host had abruptly told us that he needed our table of two for another party. We were only there for an hour at that point and had just finished eating our $15 pizzas! I suggest taking a $50 lunch elsewhere.

It was all lovely. We had a little mix up with our bills, and we're pretty sure we didn't drink 9 +bottles of water .. it was def being pushed on us we all felt. Our waitress was fun, outgoing and efficient, but we felt slightly rushed. Food was amazing .

Lunch with clients is a busy time so it isn't great when you have to chase the waiter. He was great at asking for Apps/Main but had to chase for 2nd bottle of water, coffee, and the cheque.

I found it very crowded - the tables are way too close together. The hostess told me that someone else had 'taken my table' and then she walked away and I was left to decide which table I was to take. the food was good but not anything spectacular. No additional parmesan was offered for the pasta. On the plus side, my water was kept topped up.

The food here is excellent. We came here last year and this year I made sure to make a reservation so we could come back. The pasta dishes are amazing and the gluten free option is perfect for one of our colleagues. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. It is noisy inside - last year we sat on the patio but this year it was pouring rain.

The grilled octopus was probably one of the best I've ever eaten and the mushroom pasta was fantastic. Even the bread was amazing - we had some left over that I should've taken home, because I was craving some later in the day. Service was slow but adequate. Would definitely return.

Top places in Yorkville Toronto to get a glass of wine

Tucked away on Yorkville Avenue, Trattoria Nervosa is a favourite of Torontonians who live for wine and Italian cuisine. The beautiful terrace makes Trattoria Nervosa the perfect spot to have a glass of pinot outside with your lunch or dinner in the summer, and the laid-back, elegant ambiance of the interior make it equally ideal for a bottle of Bordeaux in the winter. The lunch rush can get busy very quickly, so be sure to get there early.

Dig in to a gourmet pizza pie in Yorkville

This mainstay of the Yorkville neighbourhood has hosted a number of celebrities over the years. The surroundings are simple and elegant while still retaining some rustic charm, a characteristic that carries over to their pizzas. They serve traditional thin-crust pies baked at super-high temperatures to ensure a wonderfully blistered crust, all perfectly topped with things like prosciutto, basil and fresh mozzarella.

Nervosa might mean nervous in Latin but there’s no reason to fret when it comes to planning a romantic date at this rustic Italian spot. The pizza and pasta dishes are sophisticated yet entirely accessible and the wine list offers plenty of bottles to share. Even pop superstar Beyonce enjoyed a lunchtime date here with her husband Jay-Z when she was in Toronto on tour.
