Josos TorontoJoso's, found just steps from Avenue and Davenport, has been winning over Yorkville residents and tourists for years. The Italian heavy menu includes such classics as risotto and homemade spaghetti as well as a wide assortment of fresh seafood options.

I've been going here off and on for 30 years with my parents (I would run around the chairs after dinner while the adults would talk). The art is 'eclectic' in that there is an abundance of women's breasts on display in almost every piece of art. The food is fresh (brought to the table raw for you to select from), and the risotto negro is a personal favourite. The cost is substantial, but for a special occasion it hits the spot.

I loved it and by the way it is Croatian, not Italian.

Celebration of my son's Grad, excellent food and service. The best was on Sat we all attended the Field Trip Fest., and our Excellent server remembered us and thanked us again for being at Joso' s . How cool is that. Alan

This is definitely not a Croation restaurant. Almost exclusively Italian menu. The founding owners were Joso Spralja (Croatian),and his Italian wife, Angiolina.

Great restaurant with excellent food, but not for somebody looking for a bargain meal. Pricey.

It absolutely is a Croatian restaurant. Food is based on the fish delicacies of the Croatian Coast.

A Silva is a complete fool if he thinks Joso's is not a croatian resto. This person has their head up their ass and no culture when it comes to dining. Stick to red lobster idiot.

Disappointing. They accept reservation only for 6:15 pm and for 9:15 pm on Fridays and on Saturdays. Which means that squeezing in two full services for each table is more important for the owners than the convenience of the guests. The food may be good but I will not try it.

Those arguing over whether its Italian or Croatian should read some history on the Istrian peninsula. Both cultures lived and live there and it changed hands many times over the centuries.

So chill people.

Correct, but these guys are from a bit further south. Zadar is about midway between Istria and Split.

Yes, go back far enough enough in history and you'll see that the Venetians were the prime power and influence throughout the Dalmatian coast.
