    The dinner was lovely. We had a reservation for 6:15 pm and it was quite easy to chat amongst my party but by 7:00 it was nearly impossible for us to hear each other. Having said that, I like everything else about this restaurant to the warm freshly made rolls to the seafood pasta. I will definitely be back…maybe just a bit earlier!

    The menu options were so interesting it was difficult to choose among so many great options. The dishes were flavourful and an ample serving but not too much. Will definitely return for lunch options. An early dining time is also recommended if you're looking for a quiet meal. Excellent value and the server offered an excessive amount of info which was helpful initially but then felt intrusive.

    Excellent server! Knew the menu well and was able to provide details about ingredients. A little noisy but was a busy night. We were not rushed through our meal. Excellent pasta made in house and tiramisu was one of the best we’ve ever tasted! Highly recommend this gem of a restaurant!

    We've had our waiter (I think Ken?) the last two times and he is amazing. I life long waiter type, so knowledgeable and excellent with his service. Can answer any question or find out if he doesn't know (which hasn't happened yet). His advice on the food and drink has always been top notch.

    The restaurant was packed, so it was lively and noisy. It took well over an hour to get our food which seemed a bit unreasonable, but the food was good. The server (Ken) was excellent, knowledgeable and giving us the right combination of attentiveness and space. It was a bit pricier than I remember….. But a nice evening out.
