Great food and ambience. Service could have been better, maybe it was an off night. One of our dishes had a slight bitter taste, which the server and kitchen confirmed was not right but could not explain, however we weren't comped or discounted for that dish.
mushroom pasta Insipid and flavorless. And pasta soft and overboiled. Pork cutlet cooked to the point of leather. Appealing atmosphere but food prepared without attention or finesse.
We booked a table inside however the restaurant is seating people on the enclosed patio. The night we were there it was near -10C and the heaters they have are not equipped for that. It was really cold, like eating in a fridge, and that made the food cold soon after it landed on our table. People around us were also caught off guard that they were being seated on a patio without warning and asking to go inside. I’d recommend going with layers and wraps to keep warm.
Really upset with the service, coming in I read reviews saying that the service was pretty bad but had an open mind about it. But sadly, I also received service that was upsetting especially for the price you pay. I had to even send a dish back because it was uneatable and yet no one came and checked in and see why I sent it back.
Server was charming and professional. Food was delicious. I really enjoyed one of their cocktails with sparkling wine. Very fitting for the season.
Small portions. Limited menu options. Not worth the price.
I was not impressed by what I had . the ragout pasta had nothing special. Maybe you should add some wine to make it tastier. I am not sure I will bring my friend Geneviève!
Beautiful restaurant, excellent service and great food. Lucky to have this in the neighborhood!
The so called « heated patio » is in fact a glassed extension, fully enclosed with less air circulation than being fully indoors. We asked if à corner could be accommodated and window opened ajar considering we had reserved for outdoor dining and the response was : « no because other customers would be cold « …the very purpose of heated patio seating being to be outdoors, this reasoning hardly holds.
In conclusion extremely disappointing in the current circumstances that not only there was a misrepresentation on the heated patio concept but no attempt of accommodation whatsoever was proposed for our party of four.
Restaurant is nice but service could use some work. Host seemed confused about our reservation. Got it worked out. Got seated, offered water and then server didn’t return for 30 mins. When he did return he wasn’t friendly or helpful. Asked for some limes for the sparkling water. Never got them. Didn’t ask follow up questions like how we wanted our steak done - maybe it was his first night? Didn’t come check on how the food was until we were done. Food was okay, nothing special. Ambience is good, maybe we just had a bad server. Nothing terrible, but nothing that would make me come back.
Great meal and service. Looking forward to returning soon.
Lovely food and service. Service was slightly on the slow side.
amazing dinner! great service beautiful venue and the food was incredible.
The service and ambiance at this restaurant are amazing. However, the food was very disappointing. We ordered all three pasta dishes and two of them were actually disgusting. This is not something I would normally say, but it was really inedible. We forced ourselves to finish as we felt bad wasting the food, but in retrospect I wish I had just asked them to take it back. I would go back for drinks and appetizers (the burrata was very good), but would not recommend the pasta at all. The desserts were also underwhelming.
Service and ambiance we excellent. We loved our appetizers but were overall disappointed with our mains.
The meal was wonderful and the kitchen was great in reducing the dairy in the sauces. We enjoying sampling 7 dishes as a tasting menu. The server Isabella was very kind and know her stuff. Well trained.
A lovely evening to celebrate our anniversary.
The restaurant was still a little too chilly even sitting indoors and I had a wrap.
The host was not very warm despite being the first impression. I felt he was more interested in informing us we had to leave in a 2 hour window than welcoming us back to indoor dining.
Excellent, will be back!
Delicious food as always! Great atmosphere for a date, dinner with friends etc.
We had a wonderful dinner as an anniversary celebration. The carbonara (homemade) was fabulous, and the pork cutlet was absolutely superb.
Service and food were good though not as great as they have been in past visits.
Adequate, bit inattentive service. Salad was forgotten--but ended up a highlight ast the end: and tries were also excellent. --meal was definitely overpriced.
It was nice to see what they're created out if the venue.
Delicious food and great to share. Loved the chocolate hazelnut dessert!
Amazing meal - everything was delicious. Servers were well informed about the wine and beverage list as well as serving size. We had the focaccia and carpaccio to start. Then shared the spicy carbonara along with the fiorentina steak (perfectly cooked) with corn on the side (addictive!) and roasted broccolini. Finished with grappa and the chocolate torta. Would highly recommend this amazing restaurant!
A must go in the city. The ambiance is amazing. We had drinks and dessert, but that alone made me ready to go back for the full experience. Can't wait to come back.
Great food and service! Perfect patio for cool fall nights
Incredible. The food was amazing. The service was fantastic and the ambiance phenomenal. Come hungry and come often. 11/10
Food was great, so was service.
Vibe was pretty nice but foods were pretty salty compared to traditional italian foods. Could give it a try but i don't think i would revisit.
Great food and service on a beautiful patio. Definitely recommended.
It was fantastic, but not many options for vegetarians.
Great new find! Delicious food, attentive and friendly service and beautiful patio. We will definitely return
Great food, go for the pasta. Good vibe. Amazing heated covered patio.
This was an amazing place to eat. I want to go back soon.
Lovely ambiance and tasty food! Menu is not extensive but changes seasonally. I highly recommend the Cotaletta di Maiale and the pesto pasta! Excellent chocolate torte on the dessert menu! Our table of 3 ordered 2 appetizers, 2 pastas, 3 mains, 1 side dish and 2 desserts (totalled to just under $90 per person before drinks). We left full, happy and look forward to returning when their Fall menu begins.
Our server was just terrible. She kept forgetting about us, we even had to ask the Sommelier for help twice . The food runners were more helpful. The Appetizers were BLAND, the main dishes were a but more bearable. In all actuality, I had the seafood pasta and it was quite delicious but the rice balls, I had to start lacked flavour. My friend had the bruschetta and it was overly saturated with too much balsamic vinegar. Add that to the terrible waitress & there’s definitely no need to return to this establishment. Why were there so many good reviews? Thank you to the sommelier for suggesting a good wine !
another awesome dinner , food is simply amazing ,
fresh authentic italian food , foccacia out of this world
service was spot on , !!
I’ve been wanting to visit since they opened, so was happy to finally get a chance. I wanted to come back the second I tried the focaccia, salty, crispy, fluffy cloud of heaven. The pasta dish was simple, elegant and tasty. Everything was just nicely executed. The restaurant has a great view from the second floor and is comfortable and lovely. A really nice retrofit to the theatre. Great spot, I wished I lived closer.
One of my favourite places in the city <3
