Very good restaurant in the area of Yorkvile. The pasta is perfect as so was the fish. We were for dinner in summer so they have the tables in an outside patio. Perfect.

Business party of 13 ate here tonight in back room. It was a little tight around the table but we made it work. Food was really good. Your meal will come with bread. Most everyone ordered soup of the day with their meal but a few ordered salads. Everyone left very full. Arrived at the restaurant at 7 and finished... More

We were a group of six. All ordered different entrees and my friends said they enjoyed it. The gnocchi was to die for and disappointed the caprese salad was with bocconcini cheese. Ambiance is lively and the server was very accommodating with our requests even though the food took a while to arrive. The owner was very attentive, personal and... More

This hidden little gem in the Yorkville area is a quaint, romantic little restaurant that offers amazing food and great service. Not one item that we had from the appetizer to the desert to the great wine disappointed. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant.

A group of 20 went for a business dinner and had a nice evening. We thought we had a private dining room but it ended up being two separate tables, one of which was in a sectioned off yet open area of the restaurant. Not the best set up for a team dinner but other than that the food and... More

This restaurant has been located in this spot for more than 25 years (at least, if not more!). There is a large cozy patio with a lot of plants and is private (not in a main pass way). The seating inside includes a private room with sliding doors. The decor may not be updated but the food is great. You... More

We visited Il Posto for a graduation dinner in June of 2016. Our group of 7 was the only table inside (2 tables were sitting outside). While the food was overall very good, the service was inexcusably slow given how empty the restaurant was. This culminated in the waiter taking the graduation cake into the kitchen to plate, and disappearing... More

This is an old style Italian restaurant that dies what they do flawlessly. Dishes are slow to come but arrive more as works of art without the added dots of color on the side. Wine list is thin but well priced. Try the fish and pasta Recommended

Terrible food, specially the gnocchi and the risotto. Very long waiting time after ordering and poor service. Definitely not worth the prize.

While I had seen many reviews of Il Posto which were favourable, I had not expected to find such a gem of a restaurant, a full menu, great wine list and absolutely fabulous food. Very highly recommend this for lovers of Italian food.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
