The toilet stall inside this quaint restaurant was so small it turned me off from the whole restaurant I thought how cheap that can't invest in a bathroom upgrade

The food is great with lots of variety. It is especially nice to go in warmer weather and sit outside. Inside can be noisy

The Left Bank is my favorite restaurant in the Buffalo area. I have dined her numerous times and have always had a good experience. Great service, diverse menu, and delicious food. The Ravioli has always been a favorite.

Our best dining experience in Buffalo and a competitor for best-of-trip. Where else can you have excellent fondue at a bargain price, great seafood linguini, other tasty apps and a bargain Amarone in one evening for $130 including tip?

They may not make the pasta there, however they may purchase their pasta from local pasta makers like the Pasta Peddlers on Hertel Avenue, which by the way is very good.
