Ok meal but not great. Went with party of work colleagues. Mixed starter was good, especially the anti pasti. Average bruschetta. Had carbonara which was ok but not great. Veal looked good though. Good beers.

Went here for lunch with my daughter, we both enjoy Italian food! I had a salad and gnocchi and my daughter the pasta carbonara, everything was delicious but very filling.. The Pasta Carbonara was very good, even my daughter said "its a little bit of heaven in my plate".. Service was good although a bit slow towards the end.

We arrived early for our dinner reservations, so we had drinks at the bar. The bartender was helpful and social. He also let me try the wine prior to ordering it. Unfortunately, other staff hanging out at the bar were strategizing how they were going to upsell a new wine that just arrived at the restaurant after tasting it. There... More

Been here a few times and the experience has been great. Pizza is the thing to have. Not cheap, but very good. Service has always been excellent

Went Friday night with my family and was served by a server who was training a new employee. While our server was good the new employee was terrible. Dropping dirty cutlery all over and seemed to have an attitude. The food was good and we did try a lot of different items on the menu. The terrible part was at... More

My girlfriend and I went here for dinner on Sunday evening. It was nice and quiet as the restaurant wasn't very busy. We ordered the bruschetta and calamari for appetizers, which the portions were a bit small. 4 slices of baguette toast with some tomatoes and onions for almost $10 was a bit much. We both ordered pasta. My friend... More

Excellent food close to home, even better for the snow days by using uber eats! Some of the best pizza we have ever had in Canada by far.

Six of us dropped in for dinner. All enjoyed our food. Had the Reserva wine from Sardinia and that was very enjoyable. The food was hot and rich on a cold winter night!

My wife and I always dine at Il Fornello in Toronto when attending events at Roy Thomson Hall. The quality of the food has always been dependable and at a reasonable price. We finally got around to trying the Oakville restaurant which is much closer to our home. It was just as good as its big city cousin. We'll be... More
