The venue is small and intimate, exquisitely professional, gorgeous atmosphere - very high quality food products and obviously very well trained chef, as well as hospitality staff. You can taste the quality in the oil, in the bread, in the búfalo mozzarella -... More

An interesting entry into the building as it seats on the 2nd floor in the rear of the complex. (Unfortunately, does not appear to be accessible if anyone is curious) I love that you pass the kitchen towards your seat.

Great food quality. Clearly the chef and ownership doesn't skimp on food. Always fresh ingredients. Plenty of classic Italian menu options plus many specials Check the website for nightly specials. Very authentic and the best Italian restaurant in Guelph.

I've had some really great meals here and some not so great ones. So for that reason it's not a place that comes first to mind when I'm deciding where to eat.

A group of 14 was celebrating a special birthday and all I heard throughout the meal was: "That was delicious!" The service was impecable. Not intrusive to our party at all but always checking to see that everyone was pleased. The Chef's definitely know what they're doing. We enjoyed a full Italian meal: antipasto was phenomenal with something for everyone... More
