Catch a random Raptor or celeb in the epicentre the upscale Yorkville Universe. Sophisticated scenesters sit perched on the see-and-be-seen side patio in old Yorville lane. Primo for thin crust pizza and basic Italian fare. Hemingways is next door for those into a post-meal pint.

Great chocolate pecan pie and sticky toffee pudding. It has an outdoor patio in the front and on the side. Agnolotti and gnocchi dishes with tomato cream sauces were very good.

Recently, I went to Dimmi with some friends for dinner. We were greeted with a smile and seated immediately. Our server explained, in detail, the specials of the night. We ended up ordering the antipasto for two but made it for four. The calamari is sensational. It is light, not filling, and the perfect amount. We also ordered an Abbruseze... more

Always Delicious

I've been to Dimmi a few times, and I always enjoy the food. Both the pizza and pasta there is delicious, and the staff is always very friendly. I've never had to wait a long time for my meal, and its in a great location. Whenever we have plans to go to Yorkville, Dimmi is usually where we go.

Very good pizza and pasta dishes in Yorkville in the heart of Toronto

When we are in Yorkville we tend to prefer two restaurants, one of which is Dimmi Bar & Trattoria. We've been going there since it first opened and it has remained consistently excellent.

Uninspiring food, decor and service
April 12, 2014

On a warm spring Saturday afternoon Yorkville was packed which limited our options for finding a place for lunch. We tried several restaurants before finding an open table at Dimmi. One does not get a favorable impression when you enter the restaurant - the decor is tired, the furniture simple and an overall downscale feel to the room. The service... more

Comfortable and relaxing
March 16, 2014

Went for a quiet relaxing dinner with friends. Very friendly and accommodating. The service was great. We had cocktails and appetizers. The mussels were unbelievable. So tasty and fresh. The pizza was made as if you were in Italy. Thin crust with just
enough ingredients, not over bearing. The pasta was al dente perfect! Will definitely return again.
