My husband & I had to pick up some sun-dried tomatoes in oil. When I walked the aroma was incredible. I said to my husband we are getting lunch here! I had a hard time deciding on what to have but finally decided on the fennel sausage lasagna. It was to die for. My husband had chicken parmesan with noodles.... More

To start, I've been here quite a few times. It is usually pretty good and the desserts used to be excellent. I have noticed a decline in the desserts lately. Overpriced and stale pieces of cake. As a rule now if the cake is cut into already, I do not get it. I've had the sandwiches there. I find them... More

It was rather a cold and damp day in Halifax and I needed comfort food desperately. I stopped at the Italian Market in northend Halifax and ordered their soup of the day with a grilled cheese sandwich. Wow was it good. The couple sitting next to me also had the soup and we made a joke about soaking our bread... More

A great spot for a coffee or lunch. The food is fresh and delicious the coffee decent. The ambiance is nothing fancy but you can also buy a lot of fresh Italian items.

I work very close to their Barrington Street location, but I usually bring my lunch. A few weeks ago I was a poll clerk for the municipal election and needed to bring a lunch that didn't need to be heated, so I picked a New Orleans Muffaletta sandwich and a side Curried Tortiglioni pasta salad. I called in the order... More

My wife and I eat here often for a light lunch. The large array of food is excellent, very tasty. On our last visit we had a minor issue with a coffee and we're bowled over by the attention.
