Great standard Italian food, nice heated patio (more like a tent), and very friendly service. Great dining experience.

Great restaurant and food tasted great. I did ask for no meat on my pasta and asked them to add mushrooms instead and they charged me for a full side of mushrooms which was a lot and I didn’t feel a serving of that size for the price was necessary. Otherwise good experience.

Our waiter was very busy that night....he did a great job considering his work load. Well done! Food was very good...pizza was very good, but I should have asked for a slightly longer bake.

3.5 hours to eat dinner. 3 meals came and then we waited 30 minutes before the next 3 and another 30 minutes before the last 2 meals arrived. Entire party ate their meals at different times than the rest of the party.
We understand they were overwhelmed with a large event that was also going on at the same time.
Manager promised us she would make it up to us and take care of us, then offered us all dessert.
She then billed us all for the goodwill desserts we ordered and put a measly 20% discount on the bill.
We refused this ludicrous offer and had to insist she appropriately adjust the bills. She finally relented and gave us two free meals and the desserts.
Excellent food, but avoid going there if they are ever busy as service can be poor and managers compensation is unacceptable.
Most other parties would have walked out when half the food never showed.
3.5 hours caused our party to miss our next booking.

I believe they were under-staffed as our server was new and the other server would jump in and appeared to be hurried all the time. Lots of back and forth between the two of them, never sure who took our order and if they got it right.
We sat on the patio as it was a pleasant night, I think they forgot about us a few times. Had to go to the door and wave at them.
The food was very good, wine we wanted was not available so we ordered another bottle which was good. We were very satisfied with the food and wine but the service was a little under par for the type of establishment, would have expected better service.
We will still go again as the food is very good.

Food was excellent. One of the finest in Italian cuisines, they go above and beyond.
All waiters and waitresses were super attentive, even though they had a ton of large parties going on.

We arrived right on time for our reservation yet it took 45 minutes for us to receive water; we had to ask 2x for bread; took 60 mins for the waitress to take our order and she had to return 2x to confirm what she wrote down and we did not get our food until 8:45 a full 105 minutes after we were seated. Food was palatable but nothing notable.

We shall not return.

Service was great and the place was gorgeous inside! The calamari was incredible and so were the truffle fries. The only thing I wouldn’t recommend was the steak frites. I wouldn’t order steak again from there. But I’d definitely go back!!

Came in for a reservation at 7pm, they didn’t have a table ready until 7:30, and instead seated other people who were late for their reservations. So other people being late means I’ve got to delay all of my plans for the night? What’s the point of making a reservation? Pathetic.

We had reservations for 7:00 and didn’t get seated until 7:45 no apology from hostess or manager. We were told the kitchen was backed up. We waited another 1/2 to order and by the time our food finally arrived it was after 9:00 pm.

After waiting for 2 hours for our food, we were disappointed in the quality. The risotto was overcooked, but tasty and not worth the price. My husbands pasta was just ordinary. The wine ordered was not available when they checked the cellar?? Did get a good wine but at a much higher price.

The food was delicious. There was a wedding happening at the time so it was extremely busy and we had to wait an hour even though we had a reservation. The food is what makes up for the whole experience.

Long waits for food and drinks, have to request to have dishes cleared, food brought with no cutlery, multiple requests for cutlery so we could eat, had to request bill twice, no way we were going to order dessert. Wait staff have to serve events and private tables concurrently. Nobody bussing tables or paying attention to diner's needs. Better management required for the inexperienced staff. Recommendation: get your staff some big trays! So silly watching waitresses going back and forth to the event tent with 2 plates each to serve over 50 people!

Everything was fine except they didn’t give us great seats, likely because we had kids with us. Although I did not ask to be reseated, I would’ve preferred being seated in the tented area to shelter our family from the wind rather than being the sole table out on the curb.

I was looking forward to going here with my family for the first time and let me just say the reviews make this place sound a lot better than it is. The ambience was nice, they did a great job adjusting to outdoor dinning during the pandemic however the food was not worth it.

We spent $34 on one of their dinner specials - assuming it would be amazing. The cod had no flavour. It was watery!? Pasta was so basic, I could have made better ravioli at home. The shrimp linguine had 4 shrimps in it. And the chicken dish was not memorable as well. Overall very disappointing.

I hope they were just having a bad day.. but if you ask me, save your money. This place isn’t worth it.

We arrived on time at 7 pm. Surprised to see a long line up for guests with reservations. Turns out some guests with 6 pm reservations arrived at 6:45 and were accommodated. So we ended up waiting an hour.
Staff were apologetic and polite so we let it go, hoping the food will make up for it. Good marks for the calamari, caprese tower, gnocchi and their potato crusted cod although portion was disappointing.
The spicy shrimp linguini was just tomato and no spice at all. Avoid the mixed drinks just go for wine or beer.
The tiramisu is good and paired well with the coffee.
Overall okay experience. Hopefully they’ll get their reservations system organized better but low value for the money.
