Service is terrible...
Our server keeps asking us every 2-3mins. If we decided for our meal and no bread offered! You have to ask for it... our server seems to be rushing all the time.
I still gave them 18% tip to support their business but will never go back there again...

We had a reservation arrived at on time @ 8:15, we told to wait and didn’t get seated until 8:40. Then we ordered a bottle of wine and after bringing the bottle our server was MIA. We didn’t even get water for the table. Once she finally arrived to take our order about 20mins after seating she was gone again for another 20 mins. We didn’t get any bread for the table until just before the apps arrived and I had to waved down another waiter for some water. Our server returns with our tiny jug of water and says they ran out of pizza dough ... at an Italian place during 50% capacity restrictions. Just didn’t make sense.

Apart from the constant wait for every little thing, and having to ask for basic things like water refills, and fresh cutlery after courses, the server kept trying to upsell us items. Just came across a little rude since the service for standard items was falling below par.

Finally, at the end of dinner she was offering us dessert, when we had brought a birthday cake with us... the bill was being paid and were all waiting for the cake we brought. So I had to type it in my phone and asked her where the cake was. Her eyes widen and she scurried away to bring the cake. Returns with the cake and some coworkers to sing HBD - the effort there was noted but still the service can across as super unorganized

Overall, the food items alone were good 7/10, but not worth the sad level of service and constant waiting. Covid has done a number on places so we tried to be lenient but in the end you can find better Italian places. Hoping this review leads to some much needed improvements

The ambiance of the restaurant is great, it is beautiful and even during covid it felt almost normal. However, the service was poor the night I was there. It could have been a one off night but it was not a great first experience in terms of service. However the food and dessert was tasty, and the choice of drinks was great.

Went there to celebrate my Wife's Birthday.

Service was terrible. It seemed like it took a lot of effort to get things to us. Water... 5 minute wait... Bread... 5 more minutes... Plates for us to eat the bread with... another 3 minutes (they brought out a fresh stack of plates from the backhouse and stocked up their station before bringing us some plates). Drinks... another 5 minutes. And then they took our order. It's like they weren't expecting to have guests. They would address us but not really be ready to give us any service. For example, a couple of times, someone (a different person each time) would come to ask "is every thing ok" and then walk off and not clear away the dirty plates/cutlery. We had to flag someone down and politely ask them to take those. And then they kind of gave us a look, like it wasn't their job or something. Maybe it wasn't. We just wanted to have the table cleared.

The food was great... when you finally got it. But after our apps, we had to settle in for a long wait. We finally asked (politely) when we could expect to eat the rest of the meal and the waitress beetled off - presumably to get the food. Someone else came back and told us they sent our main course out for delivery and "it'll be out in a few moments" for them to remake our order. There was no apology for that, it was more like an "oops, your food will be right out". We skipped desert, they didn't ask us if we wanted to order any.

Paid full price for all of that. No discounts, coupons, codes or comps.

Exceptional service and food, with none of the casual familiarity that afflicts many restaurants in the area. We spent close to two hours luxuriating over a proper four course meal. This is the way Italian food is supposed to be enjoyed.

We arrived to be taken to a lovely table that was quiet and away from others. Our server, "John" bend over backwards to ensure that we had a wonderful experience for my birthday dinner. Drinks and menus arrived quickly. We were told of the specials. Appetizers were delivered quickly. John arranged with the Chef for my special request to be honoured. The food, service and ambience were unmatched and wonderful. We shall return and hope to be at one of John's tables.

Our entire experience was horrible from start to finish! We show up , everyone was running around seemingly to be confused. They finally seat us out in a tent across the parking lot that had not even been set up. This tent was freezing until an hour later when someone came back and finally changed the propane tank. We place our order , we ordered wine and a martini, he came out holding both drinks with one hand (no tray) basically spilling. He puts my wine glass down, another server comes over going “you took my wine!”, proceeds to take my glass away from me to take to another table and gives me another random glass of wine, and my server goes “I don’t trust this wine glass”, so takes my wine away again...We then decide to get a bottle of wine, I already have a glass it took 30 mins for my friend to get her glass, along with bread. Then our main dishes show up out of nowhere a few minutes later, at this point we hadn’t received our appetizers or the bread or the glass..so we sent the dishes back. Finally the bread shows up, we basically got a toasted loaf of bread (that you would make for yourself at home) , the table next to us got completely different bread (bread you would typically be served at an Italian restaurant), also cold and a rock (we didn’t eat it). Appetizer was fine , then our dinner came back out, for a second time... then we decide to order dessert. We ordered a dessert that included berries, whipped cream and sauce. The dessert shows up MINUS the whipped cream berries and sauce, and he actually tried to serve it to us as if nothing was wrong. I go “where is the whipped cream berries etc? His response “oh we’re out of those”. He actually expected us to be served and eat this half completed dessert. Naturally we sent it back and requested another dessert. As we’re finishing up our meal. We’re not even done eating before the servers are trying to come and take them away. WORST experience I have EVER had. Will NEVER eat here again or recommend!!!!!!!!

Pretty bad service, especially by a blonde lady Samantha, whom was really rude and acted very careless in many ways. Reserved this restaurant in advance (1 week ahead) for indoor, however they had placed us outside, although many others before and after us were seated inside. Everything took really really long: got our drinks only 40 min after arriving, food an hour + after arriving. Few of the items that we ordered were actually not in stock, however we were told about it about 20 30 minutes after ordering. Despite out of stock items, no availability inside and such a bad attitude from one of the staff, we were still charged full price.
I am not recommending this restaurant.
