    Amazing pizza, I'll definitely go again to try the pasta. The pizza dough was very authentic Italian, and the wood stove makes all the difference. Also, the produce they use was very fresh that made me feel even more nostalgic and remember Italy. I recommend it, but the service could be better, it was our first time visiting and we didn't feel very welcome, they placed us at a high table with very high chairs so because of my 5 year-old-son I asked for a change of tables, we were rudely denied. They said all low tables were reserved, and that would be fine, but there were low tables empty from the moment we arrived until we left. My son doesn't fit in the booster anymore so he kept slipping and even spilled water on the table because of it.

    The food was okay but the service lacked. It's advertised as a wine bar and our waiter didn't even pour our wine for us. We had to ask for pepper and parm and was handed a plastic container of parm. Not what I was expecting from an Italian restaurant. Not going to be going here again.

    At 7:25 we walked in and were quickly seated. A nice man came and brought us water, it was perfectly chilled, no ice, just the way I like it - I can still remember the refreshing taste as I drank it. We looked at the menu and picked out what we wanted - for a drink, we were going to have the Shiraz. We were very excited to see what it was, as the menu only listed the type, not the winery. For an appetizer, we were going to try the Caprese Salad - the picture on the menu looked phenomenal, decedent, if you will. There was also a daily appetizer, and we were eager to learn what it was. These choices were made within 10 minutes of us being seated. At about 7:35 we saw another table get seated. Our section now had four tables: A table of two which was already eating; a table with one man, who was having some drinks by himself and was also seated when we arrived; us; and two people who came 10 minutes after us. Immediately, who we suspected was our server (never met him up to this point) rushed over to take drink orders for them. He quickly returned with their drinks. Then he took an appetizer order, he recommended a pasta to them. He also returned to their table with bread. In all, he went to their table about four times over the next 20 minutes, making eye contact with us multiple times. Nobody else walked by or near us for us to ask to be served. At 7:55 we left the restaurant and walked down the street to Toboggan. We never got to find out what the Shiraz was, what the daily appetizer was, or got to taste the Caprese. We never even needed to decide our pizza order because our meal did not even progress to that point, because we never met our server. Now, we will be kept awake at night wondering about the “what ifs”. All we got to try was a jug of adequately chilled water. It was all very bizzare. Sure, we weren’t wearing high visibility vests. But we also weren’t wearing camouflage, so we should’ve been seen. I’m sure the restaurant was well-lit enough.

    Second time coming, and the food was great! love their pizzas and tried the ravioli for the 1st time. My server the 2nd time was OK, no good and no bad if that makes sense. The first time the server I had was super nice and talkative! I will def come back though.

    Cook refused to put green olives on our pizza because he didn’t agree with the presentation. We asked for bread with our antipasto platter the waitress said the pizza oven was too busy and that our bread probably wouldn’t make it. Pizza cook kept his mark at hit chin and wiped his nose with the top of his finger then kept making pizza without cleaning his hands it was repulsive

    Everything was so great! The apps were amazing I strongly suggest the burrata and the meatballs… yum! Pizza was so delicious with the freshest Italian ingredients. We ended with the tiramisu for dessert and all 3 of us agreed it was the best tiramisu we have ever had! Run don’t walk… this place is top notch!

    Dinner was not to our liking. Veal was over cooked and sauce had little flavour.Trying to sell a pork cutlet with lemon sauce does not work.I understand the rationale,as veal is very expensive and the clientele probably would not pay the price.Service was good and the atmosphere was fine.

    The food was great! We had two pastas and you can tell that all pasta is handmade in house. The service was quite slow even though the restaurant was not busy at all. The atmosphere and service were a lot more casual than I expected.
