I am always honest, service was rated low because server did not have a full understanding of the language and was a little slow at reacting to a few requests. When the managers/owners helped there was a marked difference. Much better.
Consistently wonderful food and service. I have nothing but good things to say about EVOO!
Edwin was ‘old world Italian’ and was one of the best servers I’ve had in a long time. Just a good guy, helpful, and very comfortable
Would definitely go back to try some of the other entrees and appetizers
Real old world type Italian with excellent service and great food!
Good service. Not very welcoming when we entered or left the restaurant! Good food.
All the different meals were fabulous!! Served elegantly and beautiful presentation!!
EVOO is one of those places where you are warmly welcomed and well looked after. The food features Italian staples and a fish/meat selection that is sure to make everyone happy. A regular haunt for a fantastic meal.
I always love going to Evoo for dinner. The food, service and consistency makes it one of our "go to" places in the neighbourhood. The staff is friendly and attentive and try to accommodate you even when you are late making a reservation. The food never disappoints.
My friend and I have eaten at EVOO before and that's why we return when we want a good Italian meal. I ordered the crab ravioli and although there were only 5 large pieces, it was absolutely delicious! My friend ordered the veal masala and it was tender and tasty. We split the dessert of the day which was a coconut cream pie and it was fantastic...generous with the coconut and not too sweet. We'll be back!
We had an amazing experience at EVOO! Loved everything- the food, service, ambience.
I had a fish dinner special (it was cod) and it was really good, for appetizers we had the meat balls and they were made in house and very nice.
Their menu has a lot of options to choose from and also daily specials, which is great, too!
For dessert we had cheesecake and it was very nice.
I would definitely go back again and again! It is now one of our to go places for a special occasions. Thank you!
We needed to identify another fine restaurant on our most recent visit to Toronto because our favorite was closed due to the owners' vacation in France. After checking out the usual guides we selected Evoo because of its location and reviews. Are we glad we did. Although the location is on a very busy main access and the front is not particularly attractive, once inside things changed completely. Instantly we were transported to a quiet intimate local family-owned restaurant in Rome. It had a little rat-pack aspects for those of you who remember Frank Sinatra and his cronies.
Even though we arrived 2.5 hours early for our reservation we were accommodated most graciously. Then we were shown a display of fresh whole fish that showed their emphasis -- at least that day. Our waiter carefully translated their Italian names and then shared useful details as to their taste, texture and preparation. Not typically ordering whole fish my wife and I took the leap of faith and picked one. Ans are we glad we did! but you have heard that from me before. The service was attentive, not stuffy, effective, and the food was prepared just right. It sounds so simple to say that but that is high praise indeed. We have never had such a perfectly prepared fish and we have enjoyed great restaurants around the world!. As the reader might guess, we became enamored by this restaurant and we will be back - no doubt. We now have two favorite restaurants in Toronto.
Always a pleasure to come back!
Food is delicious . Peter make us feel at home as always. Service is amazing.
Excellent service. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. We really enjoyed ourselves. Our favorite dinner so far on our week long trip through NY and Canada.
Our waiter was nice, but we felt very rushed. He reminded us twice that they were very busy ( for a Saturday night ) and that to make additions like adding a salad or app would take so long to get. The female owner was very nice and friendly. We had kids (12- his birthday, 9 and 8 year old), but they were quiet with no issues.
We are repeat customers, the place is charming, food is excellent, service depends on the waite. But we will go again.
Had veal which was only ok. Appetizer should have been hotter
Love this place. Easy, food is great, friendly service.
Outstanding food and service. Our must stop place when in Toronto
This was our last night in Toronto. We’ve been here four (4) days and this was the best meal by far. EVERYTHING was excellent (food, service, ambience). It is a little further from the exclusive shops in Yorkville but is worth it. Great food!
Classic Italian. Quality food and service.
A very good restaurant usually uncrowded at lunch. Pastas are excellent, good bread, good beer on tap. What's not too like?!
Much too crowded loud and busy. Excellent food though.
Wow is about the best way to tell you what to expect!
Always get a great meal. Lots of variety . Highly recommend
Was in town on business. Chose EVOO based on reviews. My entire party absolutely loved it. Food, service, decor, ambiance. And extremely affordable especially with currency exchange rate. We highly recommend this lovely place. Waiter and owner were very nice.
EVOO is always consistent in its quality of food and attentive service. Rock solid. Great wine list and new display of fresh fish so that you can pick your own.
overall, excellent. The Sardines appetizer was very good Very good service.
A wonderful experience. Food and service were excellent. We will definitely return.
From the moment we got there Peter and his staff looked after all our needs as if we were family. Special requests are never an issue as our total satisfaction was the only thing that mattered to them.
We had a fabulous time. The greeter was very accommodating and choice of tables. The food was superb and the service was friendly and helpful.
-our waiter was fantastic-we would ask him for recommendations and he would ask us a bunch of questions and helped us choose our meals
-the food was delicious
-would highly recommend it for any occasion
Great service. Nice atmostphere.
My wife and I ate here for our anniversary. The food and service were excellent, as was the ambience. A great place for a special occasion.
They sat us at a quiet table which was nice. Consistently good food and service. Our favourite upscale neighbourhood place.
Our evening was perfect there was 5 of us and everyone had a great time. It was my friends 80 birthday and I had dropped a special cake earlier in the day for them to serve after our main course was over. They brought it out with the candles and then took it away then served it up fully decorated on each plate. The food was delicious the Wild mushroom risotto was the best I have every had. The wait staff and manager were very attentive and knowledgeable with both the dinner menu and wine When in town again I will definitely go back. Thanks for a great evening
Not good for groups
Fantastic food and very reasonably priced. Ambiance was very lovely. Would go back in a heartbeat. Would be great if they did split bills:)
Nice spot for a date or special occasion. Food is all very good. Service was pretty good also. Nothing to complain about really other then its a bit out of the way from the action of downtown.
I fell in love with your restaurant the first time I was there. I’ve been back three times since then and the portions keep getting smaller and smaller.
