Volo has one of the best selections of on-tap beer in Toronto, focusing on alot of hard-to-get gems from across Ontario and usually one or two from Quebec. Great cask options too.

Atmosphere inside is pretty lively as its a rather small space and usually fills up pretty fast. Kind of an old-world traditional italian restaurant vibe going on inside with wooden tables and chairs and eclectic decor. Nice little patio outside that provides a bit more capacity for the place. Cozy bar area where you can order a pint and wait for a table to open up.

Every time I've gone service seems to be quite slow to non-existent at first when sitting down at a table, but I've only ever been there on weekend evenings/nights. Once seated and first approached by a waiter or waitress, the service tends to pick up.

Real reason to come here is the fantastic selection of on-tap Regional Ontario brews, and great cask ales. Fair pint prices considering the quality of product and location in downtown Toronto. They have a beer menu with some rare treats, but be prepared to pay quite a premium for anything imported.

Food is quite good but a tad on the pricey side. Also, every time I've ordered food I have had to wait an incredibly long time for it to arrive, so be prepared. Not a place to go for a quick bite.

Overall, despite the questionable service, would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for the best of the Ontario brewing scene (and you're not in a rush). Tasty food, and a lively atmosphere are other pluses.
