    Fantastic restaurant! Food is authentic and prices are relatively good. Our server came across a little condescending about my allergies but I think it stemmed from confusion so nothing against them! Otherwise, service and food was great.

    My first time ever here and I’ll be back! Wonderful service, from our server, the bartender coming to our table to suggest aperitifs, the hostess and all wait staff- they all pitch in to help. I had the grilled octopus and it was incredible. It was so good that I’m going to have cravings for it. I also had the minestrone soup and my friend had a Caesar salad and pizza. Have the chocolate cake, trust me as it’s like nothing you’ve ever had in all the good ways. All food was amazing and I would highly recommend this restaurant!

    This is a quaint little spot with a lot of heart. The ambiance is casual and classy at the same time. Staff is helpful, friendly, and attentive. The menu is varied with lots of options for the vegetarian in our party. It was hard to decide what to order. Several of our party went with the garganelli which was delicious. The portion sizes were perfect, and even though it has a cream-based sauce, it was not heavy and we didn't leave feeling bloated like what often happens with other pasta dishes at other restaurants. We will definitely be back to try some of the other menu offerings.

    Food never disappoints, staff is always very friendly and quick. The quality of their dough is amazing, whether its pizza, calzone, or focaccia. Without a doubt the best tira misu in the city.

    Loved the service and food but the music was terrible! Techno club vibe for a Friday night at 6pm was a little too much bass and ruined the ambiance of this restaurant…probably won’t be back.

    Fabulous restaurant. Best Italian kitchen I know of in Toronto. (One little caveat: If you reserve way in advance, and the table isn't ready when you arrive, guests should preferably be treated to a glass of wine while they're waiting. Just a friendly suggestion...)
