Delicious again. The only thing was one of the courses was steak tartare ( raw red meat with a raw egg on top) just think they should have advised first as I would think the majority of people in Vancouver wouldn’t like that but wouldn’t think to tell them in advance??

An outstanding food you can count on time and time again. I go here as a regular with a colleague to catch up on business over great food and a nice glass of wine. Highly recommend. Kale salad and Lemon Chicken - a go to every time!

I was not impressed, especially coming in from a hyped-up mood from friends. The place was very loud and tables were very close to each other, not great for intimate dates. We ordered 3 dishes: Prosciutto di Parma, Triangoli with greens & ricotta, and the dry-aged top sirloin.

The Prosciutto di Parma had green apples with it and it took me a while to appreciate the flavours, my guess is that the sweetness of the apple is supposed to balance and neutralize the saltiness of the ham and the cheese. It was a weird combination of textures that didn't go well for me, I suggest to make the apple into a puree, maybe a saucy texture can complement everything.

The Triangoli with greens & ricotta was a bit too oily and salty for me. It was hard to appreciate the taste of it especially when everything was drenched in oil. Lastly, the dry-age top sirloin was supposed to be medium rare but it was quite firm and tough. The taste was okay but nothing spectacular.

Overall, I was expecting to have at least 1 dish with a wow factor but I left the restaurant feeling disappointed and confused.

Recently went for dinner with friends. Very popular so book well in advance to avoid disappointment. I requested a booth at the front of the restaurant with a view to the street and we were really happy we did. It was very comfortable and a little bit more private than other seating can be.
As this was our first time here we decided to go with the “familia” option and we’re so glad we did. This option is 55.00 per person and well worth every penny. It gives you such a great cross section of the menu including appies, salads, pastas and proteins finishing off with desserts. The flavours were all fabulous, nothing over the top. You simply inform your server of any dietary concerns or preferences you may have then sit back and enjoy! And did we ever. It was all so well paced as well, we never felt rushed despite the ever increasing lineup of hopefuls at the door. A special thanks to Jena our server. You completed the winning combination of great friends, food and service.

The service and food were outstanding. The value is excellent for the quality and service. All the food is meant to be shared, so we sampled many dishes and only one was rated as good instead of excellent. I highly reccomend this restaurant. Great for small groups that like sampling and sharing.

Our experience was outstanding. We were told to go and such a great recommendation. We enjoyed the kale salad (with potato and pork belly), tagliatelle w mushroom, goat cheese gnocchi w lamb sauce plus the olives - every bite was perfection. We will be back again and again. Great service too!

Beautiful food and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend, I wouldn’t have more than a group of 6, feels more like an intimate restaurant. Added touch they had a birthday card at the table and a complimentary dessert.
Food and wine was amazing!!! Bravo!! Restaurant was a bit loud for talking especially if your with a larger group.

The Sirloin was cooked perfectly and the appies and sides were great

Server/host and all dining staff was EXTREMELY kind and attentive. Felt very much like a family home style dinner. Would come again! Portions are a little on the smaller side (I would say each order is great for 2 people), so if you are a larger party take that into account!
