I felt the pasta dishes were exceptional. Appetizers were all very good. Lovely beet salad. Our service was attentive but not overbearing. Oh did I mention the amazing Milton chocolate cake with cherry sauce and ice cream. A must have!

We were with friends who recommended this great Italian restaurant. It was hard to choose from such an excellent range of menu choices which all sounded delicious. The waiters had great advice and were most helpful. Excellent quality and fantastic flavours

One of those nice restaurants with a proper service team and it shows.
We had the lamb shank along with the beef steak.
A wonderful evening.

Food was very poor, is either far too salty or no taste at all. Pasta was overcooked which was very disappointing. If a fine dining Italian restaurant cannot cook their pasta well, what else can be good?
The food was very ordinary, nothing compare what is claimed to be an authentic Italian restaurant.

We had 4 dishes dinner and none of them I can call are good tasting.

Very Very disappointing.

The food here is very good and authentic Italian. However, if it is only 2 of you going DO NOT ACCEPT tables near the big round table. Two of the three taables should not even be there - they are obviously there just to squeeze more people into the restaurant. The noise level and hustle of waiters around you is impossible. My wife and I spent the whole meal asking each other to repeat ourselves. Ruined the whole evening. And what really put me off was when our main course came I asked to be moved because of the noise level and was told no other table was available. On leaving I saw that a table I had seen as empty but thought it was for 4 people actually was a table for two.

Our server was superb and two of the four of us thoroughly enjoyed their meals. My guest enjoyed eating my meal; his meal, we took away as a treat for the dog.
First of all, the Insalata Lattuga E Formaggio Di Capra. While it's so nice to see cool, crisp butter lettuce in any restaurant these days (instead of those tedious 'mixed greens'), goat cheese is ALWAYS served at room temperature and should be creamy throughout. In my case, the cheese was nearly frozen and the centre was so hard, it flaked with a fork. Also, there is no point in telling people that there are 'candied almonds' on a salad unless they can actually taste them--teeny slivers of nuts are merely decoration.
Then I ordered the Filetto Ai Formaggio Blu, which was perfect. But my guest ordered the Arrosto Di Agnello, and he specifically said he wanted the lamb done 'precisely medium'. When it arrived, it was nearly blue, with the consistency of rubber and barely penetrable with a steak knife. While our server offered to redo it, that would mean that he'd be sitting there, hungry and waiting, so I gave him my meal.
As is the case with so many Vancouver restaurants now, liquor sales are paying the rent--a glass of wine at this restaurant is pretty much the same as an entire bottle. Suppliers are delivering tough meat and chefs don't seem to be able to deal with it. They are also not paying attention to what customers order: 'precisely medium' is clear. If there is any doubt in the kitchen, the server should clarify.

Thank you for ruining my wife’s birthday!

Thank you for making my wife’s birthday especially terrible!!! Michael’s service was sub par. He clunked the wine carafe to the wineglass and the water jug into the water glass. Disgusting and unhygienic. He also brought our food luke warm when we specified hot! My wife asked for a remake of her lamb and it seemed like they reheated the lamb but left the veggies and potatoes to cool. She asked for it to be redone and he said that this was the best the chef could do. My food was warm too but seeing how he treated us I did not want to converse with him. Needless to say, we were disgusted so we left. We have come there many times and had good food and good service. I don’t understand how it could be this bad this time. Thank you again for ruining my wife’s birthday! She really had her heart set for your restaurant!



Emailed restaurant on the same day, no reply and it’s now December 22.

Very disappointing pasta. It was extremely garlicky, couldn’t even eat it, it was so bad. It tasted like somebody just dumped half of jar of gnarly pre-minced garlic into the dish. No offer was made to correct the situation and still had to pay for it so my friend took it home. The grilled vegetables were almost ok, a bit over blanched then grilled, but far more edible. The best thing was the glass of wine, but overall, what a waste of $50. The patio is nice, but I don’t recommend it for people who are expecting a good Italian pasta.

Food was very good (probably the best pasta in Vancouver/lemon tart for dessert was excellent); server was very attentive.

Was able to accommodate our request for a quiet table (not in the middle of the room)

Will bring our family visiting from outside of the province for dinner later this month!
