Church Aperitivo Bar

Posted by Staff / Listed on February 9, 2012 / review policy

Church Aperitivo BarChurch Aperitivo Bar has opened in an old church at the corner of Queen and Dovercourt after an extensive (and lengthy) renovation. Was it worth the wait? The restaurant serves up plenty of tasty antipasti, cocktails, salumi platters, pasta, fish and more.

So SO good! I highly recommend their spicy ceasars, polenta poutine, and don't miss dessert!

I don't even like dessert, and I was floored by how good it was.

Congrats guys! Keep up the great work!

Church is a blessing to the Queen West area. The ambiance and decor gives a perfect touch to enhance the natural beauty of this old real church. Cudo's to the Chef, i could not get enough of their Meatballs..... and the sauce is heavenly. Great Food, Great Atmosphere, Great People. Definitely a place not to be missed! Amen!

The food is to die for!!! Authentic Italian at it's finest with a home cooked quality...only better than I could make it :)... I also recommend the meatballs - seriously, you need to try them! This is a great place to hang out and enjoy a little bit of everything; because everything is just so good and the portions are perfect for ordering multiple dishes. Really cool, relaxed vibe - plan to stay a while...

The newest resto-bar in Queen west does not disappoint in any category. Warm atmosphere and friendly staff with attractively priced authentic italian food, polenta fries, pasta, eggplant parm, ahi tuna and swordfish a must try! Great place to go with friends to share tasty food (try 5 - 630 when they offer complimentary appetizers) drinks and music! Will definitely be back.

Stopped by yesterday so see if this place is any good: not worth your time. It's like all of Woodbridge was invited. Everything seemed uptight and unfriendly. Pass.

Good atmosphere, cool music, nice vibe to the place. I ordered a negroni, but it was poorly done, not worth $16. I was sooo mad at myself for not having said anything to the bartender. I should have watched how she made my drink, because something was surely missing or not done properly. But definitely her measurement was off !! The glass looked ridiculous, as if it was half drank already. Again, my fault for not saying anything. Ughh .... lesson learned.

Their seafood dish/stew- ZUPPA DI PESCE is to die for!! Huge portion of seafood for a very decent price
The polenta fries and mix and match "make your own" crostinis are also delightful.
Atmosphere is a little on the dark side, granted I went for an early dinner so the place looked a lot more bare because of it. I'm sure the space livens up as the night goes on..
