    My husband and I had dinner there and the food and service were great. Very small and intimate. We are both gluten free and they were very accommodating. He had the filet mignon which just melted in your mouth. and I had the Cod which was light and delicious flavors. A Gluten free deserts would be great if they can add that to one of the choices.

    Cozy, intimate atmosphere with an element of chic. Attentive staff who follow through right to the final bill. Fabulous wine list. The menu is small, thoughtful and incredibly well executed. All of this combined made it a lovely and intimate dining experience.

    Ambiance needs a little work, the way the tables are set up a little awkward. The food is delicious, the servers were excellent! A little pricy for the plating size but still it is good.

    A new gem in little Italy, a great ladies night!This place delivers a great culinary and mixology experience. The food is fresh, and delicious. Service was exceptional and attentive. Do yourself a favour and order the lamb lollipops, and halloumi salad. Thank you for a great experience, we will be back!

    Very small, and cold on a winter's evening in February. Every time the front door opened, a blast of frigid air swept in, and sitting beside the window didn't help. The food was okay, but not over the top. It was an expensive night for two, and we wished we had used the $300 differently.

    Fatuous salad was the best I’ve eaten in a long time ! Fritters we’re good . Husbands short ribs were tender but over priced at $51.00 a plate . Not a piece of broccoli or any kind of vegetable was served with the meat only cherry tomato and charred onion. I ordered the chicken in a brandy cream sauce which was rather tasteless . The chicken was tough and dry . Beautifully decorated restaurant but the noise level was very high . Not sure if I’ll give it another try .

    Every dish delicious. I’ve been craving the lobster rolls and arancini since the moment I left. Can’t wait to go back.

    Our server was absolutely lovely and as soon as we walked in there was a charming cozy and upscale vibe to the restaurant. We had the lobster roll for our appetizer which was one of the best I’ve had. And we just returned from the east cost. For our mains we had the Annabella’s chicken and the bone in beef. Both meals were absolutely delicious. The flavours rich and the meat cooked to perfection.

    The risotto and scallops special was decent, the tuna crudo excellent, and both the shrimp and halloumi salad were good. The fries were ok. Noteworthy – the stuffed wings were thoroughly disappointing. Cocktails were interesting. It took several discussions to choose a wine they actually had in stock.

    It was our 1st time at Anabella's and it was very pleasant. The food was fantastic and the sercice was excellent. It was a little loud on th main floor, but we are looking forward to our next visit. It's a nice place to add to our restaurant goto list.

    Friendly staff, I had the chicken and it was delicious. The portions are big you definately get your money's worth. They were short staffed the night we went, but they really worked as a team to make sure every one was happy. I would recommend this place for sure.
