We are best known for authentic, simple Italian cooking along with our selection of high quality, affordably-priced Italian wines. From classic dishes to daily seafood and seasonal selections, our menu always features fresh, in-season ingredients prepared by our team of experienced chefs and served by knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Many diners come to experience our popular theme nights, featuring food and wine from the many regions of Italy, along with other special dining events. Housed in newly renovated space that is sure to impress, our loyal customers have made Ristorante Boccaccio a favourite dining destination for over 30 years. We invite you to make Ristorante Boccaccio part of your dining tradition.

  • Best Calamari. With two servers (one playing part host as well) it made the ambiance family-like. The olives, bread and pizza slices were a great touch to start off, they are a complimentary aperitivo or amuse bouche as it was explained by our waiter.

  • The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The food oh well, where to I begin it was mouth watering, always wanting more seconds.

  • Nicely decorated in the traditional Italian style, the restaurant offered a formal yet friendly service. The menu features a delightful variety of traditional Italian appetizers and starters including a delicious Caesar salad with fresh shaved Parmesan, and a large selection of excellent pasta, delicate seafood and veal dishes.


Under the guidance and mentorship of Executive Chef Gino Marchetti a new format for the reimagined and resurgent Ristorante Boccaccio is now in place.  Ristorante Boccaccio embodies a synergy combing youthful exuberance, experience, education and knowledge to bring our authentic, Italian cooking to our guests.
