The food is amazing and the team that works there is delightful, kind and knowledgable . We had a great time and a fantastic meal!!!
Food was delicious and of great value. Tables are a little too close together making it hard to talk to who you are eating with. Overall would eat here again.
Excellent food and service. A bit chilly in the beginning, but a space heater helped warm us up quickly. Will return soon!
Food and service were outstanding- kudos to wait staff and chef! The ambience was superb, very comfortable with a cool vibe. The only thing I found startling was the price for a glass of wine, $16 for 5 oz. (from an ON winery). Despite this I would definitely go again!
Was meeting a friend I haven’t seen in months so we were talking lots and we ended up being the last two in the restaurant. Our server was so patient and super great. Not to mention the food was delicious. Can’t wait to go back with my husband.
Everything was fantastic. It’s a little on the noisy side, so keep that in mind if it’s important to you. Would definitely recommend.
This was my first time at the restaurant and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Ascari Enoteca. The food was amazing - all of it, the wine delicious, the service friendly and mostly efficient, the ambiance pleasant. I will most certainly recommend it to friends and family and I will definitely return!
I love Ascari Enoteca! They handle my food allergy so well that I never feel like I'm missing out on a thing. Really, this my favourite restaurant in Toronto. The staff make you feel so special and the food is always exceptional. Thanks!!
Ascari is always a favourite place to go! Absolutely delicious!
Very little choice for entrees...but GREAT appetizers...
Great restaurant! Amazing service always! Delicious food! One of our family's favorite place in the city!
Great little place with a nice neighbourhood feeling. The food wasn't certainly a cut above and the staff were friendly and helpful. It was a little noisy but I guess that's what a popular place is like.
Really good food and fantastic service
Lovely meal with lovely service. The only thing that detracted from the meal was the noise level. We were a party of 4 and literally had to yell to hear each other. If the restaurant can deal with this problem, I would definitely come back.
They definitely want you out within two hours!!
This is the place where you go to get fantastic unpretentious Italian food. The service is exceptional and the don’t forget to make a reservation!
Great service. Appetizers were spectacular. Great negroni.
One of our favourite restaurants but on this occasion both pasta dishes were disappointing. The ravioli and the pasta with the lemon.
We will be back.
We had a lovely dinner with another couple - we split appetizers and a bottle of wine, and ALL got the carbonara! SO GOOD!
Did not like any of the dishes we had and everything was very expensive especially the wine. The service was good though. You could not fault the waiters. The place is very popular but I expect way more for this price.
Other than the volume, everything was great. We have a really difficult time holding a conversation - pretty much yelling at one another to communicate.
This neighborhood gem is one of my go-to favorites. The food, quality and service never disappoints. The wine list is interesting and lots of options. Highly recommended. You will love it!
Love the food and the staff at Ascari. Thank you Ascari and its wonderful staff for a wonderful dining experience.
Wonderful food with great service. Highly recommend!
Great food, really enjoyed eating here. Restaurant is small, so it seemed to be very loud and tables were close together, but overall a great experience. Delicious!
Fantastic Italian style "tapas" spot, with great selection of wines and cocktails. Casual, friendly, great flavours and fit for any 'food lover' to visit and enjoy. Will be back soon
The food, wine list and ambiance are outstanding. This is our go-to restaurant for date nights. The half price bottles of wine on Monday nights is a nice touch and one that we have enjoyed a number of times. :-)
I have no pictures of the carpaccio but it's absolutely fantastic and you must order it if you go there - the bread and olive oil too. Everything was so delicious!
Another amazing meal at Ascari Enoteca! My partner can't have garlic or onions, which of course makes dining out complicated. However, with a quick head's up to Ascari, they provide several delicious options for her and she doesn't have to feel limited or left out (except for eyeballing my Carbonara!). The service is top notch: friendly, attentive & accomodating. They introduced us to a fantastic wine - Irreverence - from the Pearl Morissette, and we finished off with an amazing seasonal cannoli. I look forward to coming back again soon.
Friendly staff and great food.
The service at this restaurant was amazing. The atmosphere is really nice for a date night. Best pasta I’ve ever eaten! Get the beef cheek pasta. So good!!!
Small, intimate crowded space with everyone pleased to be there. Limited menu hits all the high spots, bursted, pastas and desserts. No meat mains and not missed. Pasta carbonara a favourite. Attentive “team” service.
Food is amazing. For some reasons it is loud the acoustics or something are not good the music wasn't loud and people were just talking but it was hard to talk to the people at your table.
Food is absolutely fantastic!!! The venue is really tiny so you have to be ok with close quarters. Highly recommend!
They don’t take credit cards
After reading several positive reviews of Ascari, we decided to celebrate our daughter's birthday there. Also, we hadn't been to Leslieville for a few years, and so it was good to get back there. Ascari really is a neighbourhood gem; a good balance of casual and chic. Food was delicious, with a small menu and a focus on fresh local ingredients. Combine that with wonderful service (Matt and co. were super accommodating), and you've got a perfect Saturday night dinner in a cool part of town. I would definitely recommend Ascari, and we'll check out the new King West location at some point very soon.
Carbonara is wonderful and great cocktail/drink selection.
The food was absolutely delicious, and on Monday's the bottles of wine are half-price. Can't go wrong!
Another fantastic meal. Have been 4 times and the food and service has never disappointed. Highly recommended the bbq’d lamb and fried broccoli appetizers. ½ price wine bottles on Monday!
A great restaurant with house-made pasta and an excellent wine selection.
