This is the second time I've dined here but the first where the service was lacking; it took an hour to get our appetizer and when I asked the waiter to check on the status, he came back to tell me that he didn't have any information. The entire meal took 2 hours; it would have been longer if we'd decided to stay for dessert but we decided to cut our anniversary dinner short because considering how long it took for the appetizer and meal, I was concerned that ordering dessert and then waiting for the bill would have added far too much extra time to the evening. I also noticed the waiter was happy to spend time chatting with another table instead of checking in with us...frequent diners, maybe? Well, if you want infrequent diners to become regular customers, ignoring them is not the way to do it.
The food was great, the service was definitely lacking. Were they understaffed for whatever reason? Perhaps, but in that case why not let the patrons know ahead of time? Waiting as long as we did wouldn't have been a problem if I'd been warned there might be delays, it was the lack of communication which bothered me the most.
Everything turned out awesome , one of the best ravioli I had in Vancouver. The place is just right blend of cozy ,family owned, modern and upscale food and drinks.
Fantastic meal, service and ambience! It’s also always very nice to have the owner stop by your table to say hello and check up on you. Definitely will return!
Every dish was delicious and server was friendly and attentive. What a gem!
Amazing food and service. I felt comfortable and safe with the COVID protocols and will be coming back to try more of their amazing menu!
Food and service was great and had excellent COVID protocols in place.
Wow! Looking forward to returning to this restaurant. They don’t cheap out on portion sizes like a lot of other Italian restaurants. The food is tasty and looks good. The wait staff are friendly and attentive. Lots of parking available. Very cozy place. Bravo!
Appies were good and hot. Pasta with clams was tasty. Need more bread to dip into the sauce at the end!
The food and service were top notch. Would definitely go back. Great place for special occasions.
