In Search of Romantic, Stellar Restaurant

I'll be in Toronto for my 10th Anniversary with my wife (on a Saturday). We're going to Canoe on Friday night, but I'm looking for another great place to dine on Saturday night, preferably one that's romatic, but more importantly, has top notch cuisine. I couldn't get a reservation at Splendido, and I'm a bit reluctant to take their recommendation for Opus (maybe they have a deal to recommend to each other). Anyone have thoughts? We're not into French food, but love Seafood/Italian/Continental.

      Most recently I was there 3 days ago and had yet another great meal + enjoyed the view.

        I also recommend Scaramouche. Ask for a table with a view of the city, as you're visitors, if possible. Great food and romantic!!

        Here's their website:

      2. Mistura is a top notch Italian spot, worthy of an anniversary dinner. To round out the evening, you can go upstairs to the slightly swanky Sopra Lounge for live jazz and a cocktail.

          I second both Scaramouche and Mistura. Also, consider throwing George into the mix - expecially due to their patio (haven't been in the summer, but have seen pics and it's lovely).

            I highly recommend Chiado. My favourite place for fish in the city - fantastic wine list too.

        2. Scaramouche for romance and view of the City..great service and food

            1. If you go to Scaramouche, please tell us what you think.
