The beef barley soup has my mouth watering now, almost like a french onion flavour...try it! i know it's not a main or even an italian tradition. i've only been for a business lunch and it was perfect for that. small quaint place that i...

It certainly lived up to that expectation. The server made the whole night and was very entertaining. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Thanks to the best server,... More

Don't understand the hype on this place. It was over priced for what you were served and the food had a severe lack of freshness.. Nothing that I tasted was cooked properly and the pasta was way past A Dente to the point of crumbling. Will not be back.

The food was excellent except for the rib eye being nitrogen sealed and not fresh. For $35 I would have liked fresh. My mussels and tirimisu were superb. The $60 chainte was lovely and the service 100%.

Delicious lunch specials for about 10 bucks. Tuesday has the Greek plate which is a local favorite. Servings are not large but adequate. Lovely atmosphere and good service. There are numerous prints of famous Canadian artists.

Decent Italian food in a spot not typically associated with pizza, pasta, or red sauce. The menu is small, but complete (meaning seafood, chicken, beef, veal, and pasta choices are all available). The small menu allows the staff to produce reasonable quality, although local tastes may not align with traditional Italian style. The staff is friendly, and the prices are... More

When we got there, the restaurant was very busy. The waitress made us to feel very comfortable and asked us to wait in the bar area(they also have a lounge with leather sofa at the back). It was so cozy and elegant decorated. Me and my partner were very impressed. After we seated, they brought us chef's compliment meat ball... More

We went for dinner on a Wednesday night. I had the lobster and shrimp carbonara, my husband had the special of the day and mom had the seafood chowder. Food was wonderful and the service was very good too. I would go back again.

I did not like the food . I love Italian food but I could not eat the lasagna. It tasted burnt and way too much meat in it. The waitress asked me if I wanted to take it home lol , no thank you lol. It would be nice if we had an Italian place that made fresh pasta home... More
