Quanto Basta - Toronto
This place never disappoints - you should try it !
Worst meal I’ve ever had there and terrible service.
Very few veg and vegan options. Server was very accommodating.
Great food, very friendly.
Not enough solid protein choices on the menu.
Otherwise, not bad.
Awesome food and service. Loved it!
Lena and our server (sorry didn't get his name) gave us an amazing personalized experience. They treated us like royalty. Extremely knowledgeable about every ingredient and the origin of it from the exceptional live oil to the burrata to the best prancing we've ever had. The ravioli in mushroom cream sauce is the best we've ever had and first time we weren't disappointed in the quality of the sauce and pasta. It was exceptional. Cant wait to come back for the Cornish hens and sorry we missed last week's elk! The place was packed on a Monday and unlike other places being slow on Mondays it deserves all the business it gets! 5 stars for this place!!
Never disappoints! They execute consistently on all of their regular menu items, and with their specials. Flawless.
One of our neighbourhood favourites - never disappoints, and always a warm welcome! The Il Capra salad was brilliant with its beets, pistachio, radishes, currants and arugula in a crumbled goat cheese vinaigrette.
My branzino portion was huge, cooked to perfection and served with rapini and fennel.
It was a Sunday night so fairly quiet, which was really nice, and our servers were excellent.
Thanks Quanto Basta!
Always fabulous. Always great service. My staple ‘go-to’ restaurant.
Truly a great place with a great vibe, but a bit overpriced for the pasta dishes and far too much sauce went into the preparation. I also thought the salad size was far too small as well.
Terrific service match by equally good food.
Terrific venue. Great food and service. Highly recommend.
Quanto Basta is always reliable. The food is consistently good. The chicken salad is very good in the hot weather. I usually have the calamari salad. When I am really hungry I have the pappardella bolognese. It is fantastic. I must keep going back to try something new because every thing I have had has been excellent. Service is excellent too. The people who work here are extremely pleasant and helpful. I really cannot say enough good things about this restaurant.
This place is consistently great. The food is terrific and the staff is really friendly.
Delightful, quaint restaurant. Delicious dishes. Friendly service.
We had a couple of dishes from the Anthony Bourdain inspired menu. Delicious!!!! As is everything else we have ever tried!
The Anthony Bourdain inspired menu brought us back there once again. Large portions - made me wish I had room to try more.
I must admit I was quite let down during my first (and likely only) visit to Quanta Basta. Several people I know rave about it, so I was expecting to have a great experience. The restaurant is nice, the staff are great. However, my meal was so-so. And what surprised me the most, especially in a restaurant such as this......the cutlery was put directly onto the table surface and the menus were placed directly on top of the cutlery. Call me germ phobic if you want. I call it basic principles of food safety/sanitary conditions. So.....for the blah meal and the fact that I didn’t want to use the cutlery, don’t think I’ll be going back.
Great food. Good and attentive service. We would definitely go back.
Very welcoming. Attractively appointed space. Great waiter (David) professional and positive. Menu nicely balanced and food was delicious! The Cornish hen is awesome.
Gracious service we will return.
The food is incredible but management is horrible. I made a reservation weeks before for 4. Was seated at a poor table next to the busy wait staff section (so your chair is constantly kicked). I asked to move (the restaurant was empty at 6 pm) and the Manager said no then he informed me we had to be out right at 8 pm. I mean, really? How rude. I understand you have two seatings but how rude. Ironically, we left at 8 pm after paying $500 and the restaurant was still empty. Will not go here again.
Great restaurant. Great food. Excellent service. We will be back.
Simply put, one of my favorite restaurants in Toronto!
One of our fav spots. Great food and service and lots of great specials changing by the day
Delicious food, great service !
For a 6pm reservation on a Sat night for 2 people, service was very slow. Ordered 2 soups and 1 pasta and 1 salad for entree. Had at least 5 servers so I think our entree order must have been over looked.
Many of clams in pasta were not opened so I left them and no one asked why. Disappointing as I do go often for lunch and service is much better.
Good food with good variety. A pleasant experience.
Loved the vegan friendly waitress
Went in for the giro d'Italia menu and everything was fantastic. I'll definitely be back for the half price bottles of wine on Wednesdays 😉
Great Food and Great Service. Can't ask for much more!
The food quality of this restaurant is very consistent. If I feel like having some good food without any bad surprises, they are always the first that comes in mind. Not a very big menu but enough selection for me to choose something I enjoy each time. Mushroom ravioli is my fav!
I am an extremely loyal patron, especially when I love a restaurant. This restaurant is incredible - food is always exceptional and ambiance always so great. This time - and actually a few other times it's the service that always kills the vibe/mood. Our server was polite but had zero enthusiasm and quite frankly didn't really show us she cared about being there. The staff in general looked in a funk, and the mood was somber at best. I will continue to go - but I've decided next time I will let them know. It's not worth loving something so much to have it slighted by the people that are supposed to be there to heighten the experience.
Won’t ever return on 1/2 price wine Wednesday nights. The noise level was exceedingly high and detracted from the ability to converse and our enjoyment.
From the moment we arrived everything was perfect.
Service was excellent and so was the food, right from appetizers to main course and of course dessert!
Absolutely amazing food...sardines for app and char for main...excellent wine by the glass...great owner...will be back and highly recommend
The special bruschetta appetizer was delicious and enough for two. My guest and I shared it. The pasta mains were also very tasty and the half price Wednesday wine feature was a bonus.
Our server was friendly and efficient. Good
We are regulars here. A neighbourhood gem.
