    We had a lovely evening. Only thing that was a bit off putting was that the servers and manager were all drinking at the bar pretty much the entire evening as they worked. Quite unprofessional!

    Wish I could say it was with it but totally underwhelmed with the food. For the price, value was not there, order 5 types of dishes and all were average if not below average. If you want good Italian go to Mercato

    LUCKY US! Met with some girlfriends for dinner on a Wednesday night. Some were returnees others had never been before. It so happened that all pastas were only $13 that night. Wine must have been a deal too because I could not believe how reasonable the final tally was. We each had a different pasta dish and all really enjoyed their dish. Two of us shared the greens salad which was lovely and fresh with a bit of citrus added with grapefruit segments. The pastas we tried were: Fettuccine Carbonara, Seafood Puttanesca, Fettuccine Vongole and the house special that evening. All well prepared and delicious, with sizable portions.

    The cooks don't know how to cook mozzarella sticks they come out with all the cheese pouring out of them they overcook them so my meal stopped here after appetizers as if they can't cook mozzarella sticks it's kind of scary so I didn't trust them to make anything else

    Delicious birthday dinner! Mushroom Risotto was incredible, as was the Fettuccine Carbonara (freshly-made pasta for sure!) and the Caesar Salad was the best I have had. Pizza was good, but crust needed a little longer in the oven. Dessert was the Tiramisu - heavenly and light, full of espresso flavour. Service was very attentive and pleasant. We will definitely be back!

    Excellent service and lovely place. For the most part food was very good. Pizza was way over done. Very burnt around the edges (black). Surprised they even served that to a table. We noticed table next to us had the same with pizza. Pizza ovens are tricky and very hot, but this charcoal pizza was not good.

    The food was average, not real Italian home made food not real taste in any of the plates we ordered . Service was so slow took over 50 min to get our food. Very disappointed, used to be such a good restaurant and now is very mediocre. I won’t go there again

    Watch out they add an 18% tip to bill and do not tell you, could easily double tip. Our waitress wasn’t worth 18% either. She was good at first, but then we had to wait 20mins for water fill ups by flagging down another server and had to get up and ask her for the bill. Food was tasty, no complaints by anyone, I especially recommend the fries and bruschetta. Serving sizes were small for appetizers.

    Wife food was good, my food was very under seasoned and bland. I did tell the waitress she did bring me salt that helped. They also brought us dessert to make up for my meal. Don’t think I’ll go back as the website had pictures of food items that were not on the menu, that’s why we went. Over all disappointed in the whole experience
