"Always enjoy a good meal and friendly service. People are very nice and take care of any request you have. Appetizers and meal were delicious. THe dessert menu says "imported from Italy" I would prefer something home made or fresh made. Other than that, always an enjoyable evening."

"This is a good neighbourhood Italian restaurant. They have too many tables and it's just too noisy. It actually got to the point where I couldn't hear the people at my own table.
I would recommend this restaurant for food and the service was good too but definitely don't go if you want a quiet evening

"We decided to have a pizza night and were dissappointed on how salty all 4 pizzas ordered were. For the price and quality of the food we would not recommend the pizzas. Although the service was excellent, having 4 people wait on us was probably not needed. Still would go back. Nice relaxing night out. Friendly service."

"La Veranda was my personal favourite in the west end of Toronto when they first opened. It seems that the quality and care in food prep has diminished. The service is very good, but can not make up for the lack of care in quality and presentation.
This is not meant to be a bad review, just a statement."

"The grilled vegetables quantity was lacking. We were expecting a full plate but go salad underneath. I do not recall if menu stated that this dish was on a bet of greens. If we had known we would not have purchased a salad. The pappadelle all mare with a Rose sauce was good."

"I have stayed away from this restaurant for quite some time but went again recently due to its convenient location next to the subway. I doubt I will return. Just little things that lack a certain finesse and the restaurant seems to feel that they are doing their patrons a favour. The menu is quite emphatic to the point of pretentious about no changes or substitutions to menu items. Not very customer service oriented that's for sure. Pros secco was served in a red wine glass and the server was not terribly knowledgable about things. I find it ridiculous that a small topping of Parmesan on a salad warrants an extra charge....around 3.95 I believe.....absurd.
A Kir Royal was a full $4 more than a glass of prossecco.....for what....a splash of colour.
Very overpriced for the quality of food and service offered. This is a neighbourhood bistro that thinks it is more and charges dearly for it.

"The gnocchi here is amazing! I had the pesto version and it was to die for! My boyfriend had the rose version and his was also good, but cold..
The only thing we were disappointed about was that we had gone on Valentine's Day for the lunch special, but they told us that they weren't offering it that day. I completely understand that they weren't offering it for the holiday, but they should have mentioned it when I made the reservation...They also had a giant sign in front of the restaurant promoting the lunch special the week prior. We were extremely unhappy about this.
Overall though, the food was amazing, even if it isn't what we originally went for.

"Food was fabulous as always, but rated the Service lower due to inflexibility with issuing separate bills. we were only two people, one travelling on business using a corporate card. In this day and age all of the high end restaurants in TO are able to generate separate bills."

"We have dined here a few times but this last time will be our last time! Disappointed in the food quality for the price. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. One of the lady waitresses came to pour the last bit of red wine from one bottle into someone's glass at the table and basically mixed one wine with another. Two different wines were on the table at the time. Not very professional!"

"I LOVE this restaurant and have been so many times that the staff bring our preferred wine to the table without asking! The food is superb and the prices are extremely reasonable. Don't put your order in once you've made your selection unless you're in a rush, because the appetizer will appear within less than three minutes -- if you want a "dining experience", hold off placing the order! Can't go wrong with the menu -- it's varied beyond belief!"
