Food was outstanding, but i was on a date and it felt the staff were rushing us every 10-15 mins to order more. We were there about 2.5 hours and still spent around $140. Not sure if they were in a rush to flip the table or what. But it was a little awkward being rushed so often in the middle of conversation.

Just a regular date night and we saw the reviews - while our server and staff were great, the food was a little undercooked (pasta had more bite than I would have liked and my partner's oxtail was chewy). There seemed to be a chaos that perhaps lent to an off-evening.

Most authentic Italian food I've had. Pasta is cooked to Al dente. The restaurant has an indoor and outdoor seating and is rather cramped but gives a cozy feel. The service is good; servers are knowledgeable. I would come again.

The outside has a nice covered patio and nice ambiance. The inside is very close right, relatively warm space.

We got two entrees, the carbonara that was too peppery and not as creamy as I wished it would be :( and the pappardelle Rosche Rosche was excellent!

I tried this place once and was very excited to go again. I think the only thing is that if there's 4 people in the table, give 4 complementary chocolates with the bill, not 2! It was a bit strange when that happened. Anyways, it was great food.

The service was awesome, the amibiance was good and you could tell that it was very authentic. My only con is that while my boyfriend was very happy with his food my pasta was on the chewy side and seemed undercooked, the flavours were amazing though.

Everything is good except for the hostess...She has a terrible attitude and doesn’t know how to talk to customers. We have been there twice now and we have never been greeted with a smile by the hostess, even though that’s a big part of her job. She does it with every customer and I can see that they aren’t impressed either. Everyone else was nice and friendly.

Great food, really enjoyed it. The pastas were amazing. The only reason I can't give it a 5 is that when you sit outside, you are treated to the stench of cigarette smoke. We booked it right out of there when we paid, so we could enjoy our wine at the end because we had to finish quickly.

Pasta dishes (lamb pasta and fennel sausage) were both excellent but would choose pasta other than pappardelle because the one who ordered it didn’t realize it’s as thick and heavy as it is. Bruschetta appetizer tasty and filling, barely leaving enough room for dessert, a shared tiramisu that was superb. Overall a bit pricy but that’s what eating in Yaletown is. Overall a nice outing and service was “adequate”.

Our experience at this restaurant was marvelous. The food was wonderful, as was our waiter. It was a terrific value. Fortunately, they had outside dining, because we visited during a heat wave and the tiny indoor portion of the restaurant didn’t have AC.
