    This was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday. We had plenty of time, didn’t feel rushed and they even gave me a complimentary glass of Prosecco (same as what we were drinking). We loved the energy in the room, a good level of noise, but didn’t interfere with our own conversation. Highly recommend! Food is fantastic!

    Good but not great. Reservation was made a few weeks in advance and received a call to come earlier do you having to accommodate a reservation after us. I made this to be an unusual demand (not a request).

    Food was fantastic as it always it. Service was amazing. I was a little disappointed that the bruschetta appetizer was not the same as I had had before. Also disappointed that a long standing favourite dessert (tiramisu). was taken off the menu. Loved the main course and others in the party loved their apps and desserts. Just wish they hadn’t changed two of my favs.

    Restaurant has a great combination of modern design with a rustic touch of exposed wood beams and brick walls. Our meals were very good and our waiter Marcus provided a friendly air to the meal by not just serving our meal but sharing in our conversations as well. We went there to celebrate a birthday and were treated to a very enjoyable evening.

    We arrived on time for a reservation and seated promptly. When I sat down on the chair it was a little far from the table, so I grabbed the chair on each side and scooted forward. The chair pad was loose and jammed my finger between the chairpad and the chair frame. It was quite sore. The waiter and the manager were very attentive. They even took items off our bill. They didn't have to. It wasn't expected. It was just an accident. It looks like I'm losing the fingernail on one of my fingers. 2 days later and my fingers are still sore. I think the restaurant went above and beyond for this issue. We will be back.

    Italian by night continues to be a #1 restaurant in uptown Saint John. Would like to see a change to the menu seems to have been the same for so long. We ordered a margheritta pizza for our appetizer must say one on the best thin crust pizzas I’ve had.

    Our second time visiting the restaurant, and so far it's all been amazing. I had the beef special (not in the menu), it was beef tenderloin and seasonal veggies- squash, brussel sprouts and bacon mashed potato. Everything was delicious, and our server was friendly and attentive. Can't wait for the next time!
