Terrible is all I have to say ! I will not recommend anyone to this place ! Oh and if you do decide to eat here don’t ask for parmigiana cheese cus the chef will reject your request and won’t serve you anymore food ! They told us the kitchen was closed and won’t be able to make us anything else at 9:20pm when they close at 10pm ! I will never go back to this restaurant ever!

This is my second time coming to this restaurant and it is still just as amazing as I first remembered it to be. It has a very "mom and pop" feel in a quaint restaurant in busy Yaletown. The food is very straight to point and delicious. This restaurant is a must for you if you are looking true pasta in downtown.

What a gem in Yaletown- glad we found it. Solid Italian food, casual yet intimate vibe place. Great for our anniversary date and also small group (4-6) dinners.

Service wasn’t the best when we went to the restaurant. We ordered a drink that we didn’t like but the server wasn’t helpful with exchanging the drink and said you have to pay for it. Usually a decent restaurant would have been more accommodating. However, the server did get my note about the birthday celebration and brought out an amazing tiramisu. Food was excellent. Just not impressed with our service.

The restaurant is small and quaint, reservations on weekends is a must if you don’t want to wait.

My husband and I were seated at last table in the restaurant right beside the door to the patio. Not the best seat in the house but it was alright just a bit tight for space.

We had 2 glasses of champagne to start, followed by a cocktail each to celebrate our anniversary. We decided to go for the date night menu which included 2 antipasti, 2 mains, 2 desserts and a bottle of wine (red or white) for $122 CAD. You get complimentary bread and olives to start.

We chose: burrata caprese and beef carpaccio to start followed by the Roche Roche pasta and seafood pasta. For dessert we chose pana cotta and tiramisu. All the food was delicious, portions were good and the wine (red) was also good. We would eat here again for sure. Service was also great...not in your face but friendly. A true gem in the heart of Yaletown for Italian food! Mangia!!!

The food was incredible. We enjoyed every bite. The food tasted so fresh and authentic. My only slight complaint is that this is a very small restaurant, and they position the 2-seater tables within 6 inches of each other. So, it's like you are eating and hearing strangers conversation. I don't think this can be helped, but probaby is good to know before hand.

The menu is not extensive but everything we have tried at this restaurant has been wonderful. Fresh, homemade pasta with tasty sauces, crispy bruschetta and perfectly prepared risotto. They have a lovely little patio that is perfect for a nice evening. The service was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely return.

This was by far the best restaurant we ate at during our 3 day's Vancouver (and we are rather spoiled). Great Italian food and the staff is nice too. This one you should not miss!

The food was very delicious! We got the Burrata Caprese, Osso Buco & Risotto, and the Gnocchi Ai Quatro Formaggi and finished it all. Our server was pleasant and accommodating, and everything came on time. Also delicious Prosecco Sangria! The patio's a bit small but we were sat very comfortably at out table : )

Everything about this restaurant is top notch. The food is authentic without being pretentious and the cocktails were unique and reasonably priced. Our server, Yousef, made our evening with his charming and professional manner. Looking forward to our next visit!

Overall solid experience. Shaky first few minutes with a weird greeting and no menus for a few minutes. Burrata w/ prosciutto and the salad w/ pine nuts was great and felt super authentic. The Vongole was pretty good, pasta cooked well but the balance of spice, garlic and wine was off. The spice kind of just overwhelmed.

Service and ambiance were great. Lively Yaletown patio.

Bruschetta was delicious.

The pasta was quite good - I had the primavera with a nice tangy basil tomato sauce and yummy burrata cheese.

Delicious Italian food! Wonderful homemade pasta, great service and nice patio. We came for our anniversary and they gave us free champagne to celebrate- very thoughtful. We would highly recommend it, especially the patio seating (the inside looked quite small).

The food was fabulous. Sat outside and had a great atmosphere. The service was rough. We had kids and were done with the appetizer for ten minutes or so and she then asks if we want our entree order put in! We then had to wait longer than anticipated. However, the food was worth it!

Experience authentic Italian home style cuisine in this boutique/mom & pop patio restaurant in the heart of Yaletown. Pleasant and attentive but non-intrusive service starts with marinated kalamata olives as soon as you are seated. Antipastos include burrata tomato salads, which I always appreciate, but this visit I had the bruschetta with pine nuts gorgonzola and prosciutto. Followed by the parpadella, a house-made pasta with a sauce whose recipe, like most everything on the menu, has been in the family for generations. One of my go-tos I have sat both on the patio and the intimate kitchen side indoor dining room - not a bad seat in the house. Be sure to make a reservation, and way in advance if you are vying for one of their coveted patio tables.

Amazing! Perfect sunny Vancouver afternoon made this a wonderful patio lunch. Pasta was phenomenal - you can tell the high quality it is made in house. The lavender creme brûlée was a unique twist on a classic dessert. Service was friendly, professional and attentive. Overall wonderful and cannot wait to go back.

This was probably the worse meal we have ever had. The food was swimming in sauce which was oily. The pasta was undercooked and hard as a rock. The seafood wasn’t fresh, couldn’t even find the scallops, prawns were frozen and small in size.

We won’t be back and will never recommend this restaurant to anyone

So glad we stumbled across this gem. Absolutely delicious. It was a little hard to find amongst all of the other restaurants but so worth the effort. We had salads, pasta, cocktails a little wine and saved room for dessert. Everything was awesome!
