I have been there many times with family and friends and the food has been nothing but out of this world. I met with the new chef mimmo who has brought such a great flare to the food and place. He is very talented and great fit for this place. I love the different specials that are created each day with that home feel to each one. Keep up the great work!!
We've eaten here a few times now and each time the food was very good. The calamari are perfectly dusted in flour and fried and the aiolio dip is so good. Each time we've ordered one of their wood oven pizzas and they were delicious. It can get a bit pricey if you order a 3 course meal (appetizer, main, and dessert). For example my family of 4 went for a nice lunch one afternoon and the bill was $200. But we didn't leave hungry and weren't disappointed. So I guess you get what you pay for. If you're tight for cash, skip the appetizer & dessert and order a main dish. Their alcohol can be pricey too. But overall, a great place to have a nice dinner.
Our family and friends truly love going to Cinquelire for dinner. They have wonderful food (pizza is fabulous!) and spectacular service. They are an excellent family oriented restaurant, we love taking family with small children there, the kids have a blast and love the pizza and gelato. The prices are very fair and they can accomodate any dish to your liking. Amazing restaurant, one of our faves for sure.
I was here for my staff Xmas party and had a great time. The food was better than I expected. Service was friendly and prompt, even with a party of at least 15 people. I had a steak that was well prepared and absolutely gigantic. After a few pizza appetizers I barely had room to finish.
Really nice neighbourhood restaurant with great food. I have to agree with the previous reviewer prices are a bit too high for the portions offered. You should however still give this place a try you won't be too disapointed.
It was my first visit to CINQUElire but my friend Maddalena's second visit. We shared the fried calamari and shrimp along with a Pizza alla Margarita. Fabulous. We ended the evening with fresh made gelato....very refreshing. The waiters were attentive and friendly. Will have to visit again real soon. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner.
This has become my favorite resturant. From their appitizers to the main course to their desert you are definitly not disappointed. I had the Insalata Cinquelire, the Dell'orto pizza and buono notte - which is nutella and mascropone cheese on a pizza and hazlenut gelato - to die for! My husband who is italian and his mother who cooks authentic italian to die for cuisine...loved this resturant to!
First, I must congratulate you on your selection of your name, a smart play on the town in Liguria. Secondly, your menu is simple yet extensive, the service was swift and pleasant, our server did not have a name tag, but he mentioned he had been with the company for 3 months. As of late my husband and I frequent Mercatto on College St. downtown, I would compare the two, however the loud, unpleasant music,put me off and my husband mentioned this to our server, he was gracious receiving our complaint, I think the music was lowered a little. I did enjoy the food and service, but I would think twice about returning because of the noise, have your heard of Moses Znaimer and his take on noisy restaurants? This is my choice and if no one else has complained or leaves your restaurant with a sore throat, then this is totally my problem, thank you for allowing my to voice my opinion, sincerely, Lynda and Cesare Dambrosio.
Went to Cinquelire Restaurant with my family and they really loved it. The kids especially loved the pizza and the grilled calamari. The service by the waiter Sam was excellent and I was very happy that he put a smile on my kids faces. He made us feel very welcomed and I would for sure go back with my family. Thanks Small Sam. ;)
This local restaurant is like a hidden gem found along Dufferin Street in a nice Italian neighbourhood. The food is very good and reasonably priced. The service is outstanding and they really know how to take care of you whether it's just two or a large group. The pizza is fantastic and they have so many different types to choose from. I've had almost everything on the menu and it's all excellent! The restaurant is decorated really elegantly and they have a cute patio outside and it feels like your out of Toronto. Gotta go there, nice little hang out.
Whatever we asked for was accommodated. Food was fresh and tasty. Unique flavours combined. Very simple menu. Pizza was great. Would definitely order as party starters,very casual great place to go before or after yorkdale movie
Went there for the first time today and it will not be the last, good food, excellent service, Francesco was outstanding, and so were the other young men who brought water, coffee, even a small sample of gelato. We were made to feel appreciated and valued.
