"Had another good experience at Paganelli's with the exception of some items on the menu were not available (and the waiter failed to tell us even after we ordered). Quality of the food was very good and the wines were nice (and good value). Overall a good (but not spectacular like previous times). Maybe an off night this time."

"We had a very nice evening....we were pre theatre dining so it was early and quiet but started to fill as the evening wore on. The menu prices were more than reasonable and our only disappointment was the couple of items not available that evening. I would go back again."

"For a Friday night, Restaurant was not busy at all. We sat down for dinner at 7:00 pm and there were only three or four more tables occupied. Staff comprises two servers who take turns at being hosts/receptionists and two men in the kitchen. Menu prices are reasonable and food variety is good. We live in the Queens Quay area so we went to Restaurant to give it a try, but we left with mixed feelings, but we will go back someday to try their Pizza, which seemed good."

"We were looking for a good risotto place and was recommended to try Paganelli's. We were not at all disappointed. Being there on a summer long weekend, the place was quiet. Other than risotto, their soup was nice and hot. Server was very attentive and thoughtful when recommending to our friend's need. Overall satisfied with our first visit cand will definitely return."

"Don't miss the Grand Frito! It was served with squid rings, prawn, zucchini, carrots, onion, eggplant with housemate tomato sauce. It came very crispy and the squid rings were very tender. We also ordered the mushroom risotto, every single grain of rice of was cooked to perfection. Both servings were very generous. Our server, Guillermo was pleasant and attentive. We had a wonderful dinner. Thank you to the chef and Guillermo."

"This restaurant was a wonderful find. All the pasta and bread was homemade and cooked to perfection. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and when we return to Toronto we'll be back. Service was superb."

"We hadn't been to this neighbourhood restaurant in almost a year, but we tried it again last week. The menu has been expanded, service was friendly and the food was great.. Between the five of us we tried a pizza, the halibut with a beet risotto, the branzino, a wild boar pasta and the osso buco. The meals were presented beautifully and everyone said their meal was delicious. The service was attentive but not smothering. We were able to bring our own wine too! Can't wait to go back."

"I saw this restaurant one day when I was out walking and it looked nice so I decided to take a friend there for her birthday. It was a Thursday night and as we walked along Front street all the places along the street were vibrant and interesting. I had made a reservation but it was not needed. Only about 5 tables occupied over the course of our dinner. So borderline to "dead" to have a nice ambience. Service was very good. This is the first time ever that I have returned a pizza . It was burned on the bottom and dry. No problem they readily exchanged it and also gave us a bit of extra wine for the trouble. We shared a Caesar salad and it was less than average. Could hardly find the shaved cheese and the croutons looked like they were out of the box and the dressing had no zip. EVen the lettuce was past its prime. For two glasses of wine, split salad and two pizza the bill was $93 including the tip. Didn't feel like value for the money at all. I left disappointed. Not terrible just not a good choice . Truthfully the next night I went and grabbed a pizza pizza $4.99 take out special and the pizza was better."

"We were looking for a bite before going to a show. The service was efficient and friendly.The food selection is very traditional, no novelties or surprises, tasty but not something that will draw you back.
The decore is due for a facelift.
Latte and deserts were excellent.

"I found the price of the meals in this restaurant to be expensive in comparison to other establishments in this area. and the food quality is not as good as their competitors. Therefore this restaurant is poor value as they offer average (at best) food at inflated prices. There are many better alternative restaurants in the immediate area."

"We came for Valentine's dinner and from the start we were disappointed with the service. No one greeted us at the front. And when they did it took 10 minutes. I understand they were busy but a small greeting would have been welcoming. Then when we were seated we had to wait a good 20 minutes for our first server. It was very bad. I've never been this upset at a server.
Food was decent. Nothing exceptional."

"This restaurant never disappoints us. The food is great and so is the service. A quiet little restaurant to have a romantic lunch (it feels like you are in Italy). It is also a great place to have a business lunch because you can actually hear yourself talk."

"Stumbled upon this hidden gem with a friend. We walked in and immediately knew this was going to be one of our favourite restaurants. Their prosciutto plate is melt in your mouth and their risotto (my faves are the pheasant and the mushroom) will have you swooning. Best Italian in the city."
