Sotto Voce Wine & Pasta Bar

Sotto Voce Wine & Pasta Bar has been one of the cornerstones of the Little Italy area of Toronto for the past 20 years. Known for its coziness in the winter (great for 1st dates) and it's see and be seen patio in the summer. "The Voce" continues to serve Traditional Italian Comfort Food and features an extensive "by the glass" wine list. Our style is cool and relaxed. The vibe and atmosphere we create will ensure a memorable evening.

"We had made a reservation online. Got there, and got right in. They got quite busy as the night went on, and it is a small spot. The owner ( I presume it was) was very welcoming, and the wait staff helpful and attentive. Atmosphere: cozy, warm busy but in an inclusive, positive way. The place really is lovely. Super food, a nice wine list, prices are realistic and the food is much better than many "premium" Italian spots that are big on atmosphere and stuffiness, but not on food quality. A great spot for friends to gather, a super date spot, and could likely accomodate a party with enough notice. Five stars!"

"This restaurant was a great find. Delicious food - pasta was served in bowls and were full of yummy flavour. The only downfall with this restaurant is due to its small size, they do not have proper ventilation and your clothes smell like garlic and onions when you leave! Great ambiance and service. The desserts are a bit expensive for what you get, $12 for a small slice of cake! Cappuccinos were hot and delicious and a great way to finish off your meal."

"The food was well prepared, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The wine list was small but well chosen and reasonably priced. Our only complaint was the service. We ordered an appetizer and salad which were served at the same time and then waited 45 minutes for our entree, scallops, to appear.
I will plan to return because of the quality of the food and hope that the service we experienced was an anomaly.

"We made reservations on St. Patrick's Day, not a typical day for italian food, but that's what we wanted. When we arrived it was cold and dark inside, and the musical choices were more contemporary art scene...not what we expected. I was put off by the environment, as were my wife and our adult daughter, but we decided to stick around rather than walk to someplace new in the cold.
Turns out this was a good decision, because the service, the food and the wine were great! We ended up having only appetizers, but ordered several of them and had great fun! Honestly, there isn't really much better than good bruschetta and red wine! The meatballs were really good too.

"We had great service and the food was excellent. The salad dressing was nice and light. The veal chop was perfectly done And is a bargain at $18.00
The recommendation for wine was spot on.
