Via Allegro TorontoVia Allegro is a much-lauded Italian restaurant in Etobicoke. THIS is fine Italian dining. Try their daily rissotto or and of their fresh pasta.

I went here last night with my wife for our 1 year wedding anniversary and had the greatest rizzoto of my life. Drenched in truffle oil I alomost lost my mind it was so good.

Do not expect cheap this dish was $32 however its worth it.

To top it off they have a wine list that reads like the bible and the worlds most extensive whisky collection.

Since it was our special day they also gave us a couple glasses of prosecco on the house.

A great night.

Such a great, intimate spot for dates.. especially for a memorable one like an anniversary! Their wine collection alone is grounds enough to drive all the way out to Etobicoke, I find this restaurant has always been one of my favorites and I have never eaten a bad dish. Expensive, but worth every penny, great place! Especially for being located in a strip mall.

I have to second apetimberlake's comments about going for their anniversary. My husband and I went here in December for our 1st anniversary during the middle of a snowstorm when we couldn't drive the distance to the restaurant we had reservations at. The staff at Via Allegro were wonderful, fit us into the busy restaurant, and served us a special dessert and proseco to make us feel special! The food was phenomenal and reminded us of the food we had on our honeymoon in Italy....would go back anytime - it's fine dining, but not at all pretentious!

My fiancé and I had dinner there with my family last Sunday.

I was impressed by the service and the appetizers, however, when it came to entrées I was severely disappointed.

The food was overcooked and over-salted and generally not the quality you expect to get when paying at least $35 per entrée.

It was overall a frustrating experience and I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Nice restaurant but if you want your Cadi Escallade get stolen go to this restaurant. No cameras provided in the parking lot. My son in law's Escallade got stolen here when I celebrated my 60th birthday.

You are aa moron! You realize that it's not the restaurant's issue that there are no cameras in the parking lot right. If that is your issue maybe talk to the company that ownes the plaza instead of crapping on a great restaurant for something they do not have control over. Also your son in law is obviously a douche driving a waste of money piece of crap escalade.
