The atmosphere is casual and inviting, with jazz and Italian music softly serenading you in the background. Our prices are very welcoming as well. We are a family friendly restaurant.
Been Going to Baldini for 5 years.
Patrick is the best waiter in town.
Lovely place...great food.
Food was delicious and as good as the last time we came to the restaurant. The service was awesome. Patrick was very attentive and the flow of the meal was well timed.
Wonderful first experience at Baldini's prior to going to the Crow's nest theatre. Mussels in gorgonzola cream sauce delicious as well as beet salad and spinach gnocchi. Only comment would be the bread - it was too dense to sop up the wonderful sauces - perhaps ciabatta buns would be better?
This was my second visit to Baldini and both times have been a great experience. Such a lovely atmosphere and Patrick is a wonderful server who makes everyone feel welcome. Baldini is a true gem in the east end.
What a gem. The food was 'lick the plate clean' delicious! Great ambience, and Patrick was the perfect complement to a fabulous meal. Made a reservation for a group of friends for the following Friday!
Lovely neighbourhood restaurant. Every aspect if the evening was thoroughly enjoyable. Food and wait staff excellent.
the food was great
the service was very good
The seating was a little tight
Felt we were being rushed and my friends were disappointed with there meals. To much breading on the veal. One veal was burnt, Pasta was the wrong sauce as requested. Not asked if we wanted coffee or tea.
My dish was fine but everyone else was not happy. I’ll give it one more visit. If it is the same experience , I’ll stop going there. Sometimes we all have bad nights.
First time at Baldini...will definitely be back!!
What a gem. Unassuming from the street view but the pleasant surprise was the delicious food. We had salads and pastas. Just fantastic. We are heading back soon.
Arrived and our reservation wasn’t ready. Otherwise everything was great.
This is a great neighbourhood restaurant that is worth going out of your way to visit. The food is very good and the ambience is perfect for a small group
The selection was great and the server was excellent
Always great service & food. Pasta is done just right - al dente
First time visitors but we will be back! Great waiter and food was all delicious 😋
Amazing food and service! Definitely would return again and again and again....:)
Would absolutely recommend Baldini to friends and family. Provided they are looking for a beautiful restaurant with a lovely intimidate environment and yummy Italian cuisine.
Food is great, service is great! what more do you need?
We went to Baldini to celebrate my daughter's birthday. When I made the reservation it asked if there was a celebration and I put in that it was my daughter's birthday. I have no idea why they asked because when we ordered the one piece of cake for dessert (that was clearly for my daughter in celebration of her birthday) the waiter didn't say a thing - no candle, nothing. He just plopped it down in front of her. This was very disappointing. Why bother asking if we are there to celebrate if the restaurant isn't even going to acknowledge the celebration?
As always Baldinis is great! Patrick looks after your every need and the food is awesome!! Great place for an evening
Our book club, consisting of teachers and a principal, who all worked together at a neighbourhood school, loves everything about the restaurant. It's quiet, and we can hear ourselves in conversation. Both the food and service are excellent. The variety of offerings on the menu gave us plenty of choices. The food was delicious, and the price was right. We have come to Baldini's restaurant a few times in the past and will continue to come in the future. It was a lovely, tasty experience. Bob Jennings
Service was excellent. Food was expertly prepared. Delicious.
This is one of our favourite Toronto restaurants. We have introduced many friends and family to it.
It never disappoints. Food is always excellent as are the servers.
One of my go to Italian neighbour restaurants. Great food. Patrick is awesome. 10+++
Excellent in all aspects. Truly enjoyable dinner. Service is exceptional.
Perfect little gem of a restaurant. Great food great service great atmosphere.
My wife and I have been to this place at least twice a year for the last 5 years or so and each time has been great....except the last time. Nothing major just a few little things. Prices went up but portions were smaller, forgot to bring bread to our table, I had to ask twice, and the seafood pasta which my wife always order, didn't taste as good. We'll see what happens next time we go.
Always excellent ! Patrick is very attentive and pleasant !
Went for anniversary dinner, very reasonable prices for very good food, service was excellent, would definitely recommend.
I lived in Italy for a few years and this just took me right back there. Authentic Italian cuisine, attentive service and intimate atmosphere. I will be back 100%.
Service was impeccable, especially at the doorway! There are two steps to the main restaurant and the wait staff helped to get my wheelchair in and safely out again! So excited to have tried this restaurant for lunch as there are not many options for semi-accessible lunch-time venues in Leslieville. The food was delicious and we'll be back again to try more dishes, a dinner or three in future. Club sandwich was the best I've had, ever. Reasonable prices, many food options (many courses, if desired), full linen service. Not very busy so enjoyed a leisurely lunch, with attentive staff.
Excellent service, as usual. Always good value and delicious. One of my favourite go-to always good dining choices.
The food was okay; it didn't blow me away. The portions weren't that big either, and it was pricey for what you got. The decor and ambiance were 'tired' (to say the least). Our waiter was great, so the service was the saving grace. But, I probably wouldn't go back or recommend to a friend.
It was good for Gluten Free options, but overall fairly basic. Food was okay, wine was good.
We tried the special pasta dish, which had a veal sauce. Very deep rich flavour and quite yummy.
The wait staff was pleasant and refilled our water glasses regularly but never topped up our wine glasses.
Had to wait for reso but made up for it with glass of wine!
Always a great meal and awesome time spent with friends. Service is perfect, very attentive.
Great, casual Italian food in a relaxed environment—good pasta and pizza.
Always a great experience. The server, Patrick, is amazing and is focused on the customer is amazing.
Both the food and the service were really good. It was our first time visiting your restaurant, but certainly won`t be our last.
It was quiet, comfortable and the service and food were first rate. I have told 10 friends about Baldini since Tuesday. Will definitely return.
