An excellent dine-in experience. I have picked up take-out several times but had not eaten in a restaurant for 1 year (like many people). We loved the food, the service and the ambience. A wonderful reminder that pleasurable dining can be enjoyed again. Thanks!

One of the few places that have Nebbiolo's on their wine list. Great space & friendly staff. PS the Cheese Sticks are deadly but enormous lol. They're a meal on their own.

Very nice experience overall. However, both dishes we ordered were too salty (Mac and cheese and pasta dish with sausage, sun dried tomatoes and rapini). The service was very good. The music was too loud.

Amazing pasta and cocktails. Calamari was slightly over cooked but we enjoyed it nonetheless. Service was top notch. Vibe was amazing. We’ll be back!

The pasta was plain and simple. Aside from the cheese inside the pasta itself (which was excellent) the sauce tasted like canned tomatoes. For the price of the meal, I expected more.

What a fantastic addition to Ottawa’s restaurant scene! The pasta is homey and unfussy but executed perfectly, the wine list is great value and diverse, and there are negronis on tap!
