Thursday last seven of us descended upon this supposed nice Italian restaurant! At first we were greeted cordially and the server was quite friendly but for some reason he was replaced mid order and his stand in was a rude unfriendly cad who not only lied about the ( Special ) veggies but was very abrupt and condescending.I know we...

Probably the worst restaurant I've ever been to, not only did I get horrible diarrhea for half of the day (and it was all I ate that day) but everyone's food was just awful. I had the chicken with mushrooms and I really didn't expect basic high-sodium mushroom sauce, I barely stomached it which in retrospect I shouldn't have. It... More

Eat here anytime for the food. The gorganzola cream sauce is to die for! BUT - the patio!!!! In the summer it is so beautiful. An absolute must on Bloor street!

Firstly, the lady who greated us at the door was amazing. My friend had a little medical problem and she helped us with total care and compassion. We were there for a funeral luncheon. The food was amazing. Two types of salads, pasta with sauce, pizzas, veal, talapia, chicken and a platter of veggies were served on large platters. Delicious.... More

We just had lunch at La Veranda Osteria on Royal York Road, the most recent of our many visits to this appealing Italian restaurant which has earned our affection for the consistent quality of its food and service. Today my wife started with a fine butternut squash soup while I had the antipasto consisting of an appetising selection of grilled... More

The food was average or below average. The service was beyond rude. I have never had such rude service in all my life. We had a large group and were 'told' that we could pay separately but not have separate bills. When the bill came, it was simply a list of dishes that we had and we had to figure... More

Have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed it very much. Decided to do our small office Xmas luncheon there this year. 8 people, asked for a round table near the back. This was accommodated well. Table was large enough that everyone sat comfortably and we could chat easily with each other. They have a new menu and the food... More

Tremendous thin crust pizzas and Caesar salad. We order every couple of weeks! Fast turn around service with the Uber. Best pizza for delivery!

Most of the restaurants along Bloor were closed. We saw the empty patio, but had a closer look before assuming it too was closed on a Sunday. We happened to arrive and order our wine, appetizer and main course on the prix fixe menu before a party of at least six tables arrived for lunch. The wine, salad and pasta... More

My friends and I were attracted to this restaurant by the amazing floral display, planters and hanging baskets, on the outdoor space which gives La Veranda its name but the August heat drove us in to the air conditioning. We noted that there was an express lunch menu but we were enjoying a leisurely girls' lunch and so did not... More
