I felt like I was in Italy. Matteo was our sever and he made our special occasion even more special! The service was impeccable.The food was so amazing and the prices are hard to believe (so decently priced) for the quality of food you get. They have a special for two with a 3 course meal and a bottle of wine for $120 or around that. You can’t get this deal anywhere else. Don’t even think twice. You have to try this place!

The food here is so good. The service is excellent. It's a tiny little place with most of the tables outside in a covered, heated (if necessary) area. I had the lobster/crab ravioli and it is sublime.

The only reason service didn’t get 5 stars out of 5 is that when we arrived it literally took almost 5 minutes before someone acknowledged us in the waiting area at entrance. This is our second visit and we love this place - we will be back soon!

Service was amazing ! I ordered Lobster ravioli and it was delicious . My husband ordered Saffron risotto and it was not good at all. Watery and bland and we returned it and still paid $15 for it. We got a free tiramisu upon checking in on yelp and it was delicious as well. I will definitely go back but not my husband lol

Hands down the best Italian food in Vancouver! The authenticity of the ingredients, the quality and most importantly the Chef's skill and execution of the dishes were so spot on. All the dishes we had were on point. The Seafood Risotto is a must. The tiramisu is as good as it'll get here in Vancouver, so good!!!
Even as simple as receiving olives the moment we sat. And the bread being warm, the side of "very good" olive oil with balsamic. All the little details sums up as a truly wonderful experience.
Thank you so much!
It was my first time and will be back for sure. :)

This place was just lovely - like a proper Italian bistro with a small menu, homemade pasta, and wonderful warm staff. They were lovely to my two boys and we ate a feast for a reasonable price. Highly recommend this place - more authentic than most so-called 'Italian' restaurants out there. A jewel in Yaletown.

Went for dinner for our Anniversary and was not disappointed. The food, service and friendliness
of the staff was great. The dishes are all wonderfully presented, when plated the meals were hot when
they arrived to the table, and the flavorers are delicious. Very fresh and authentic presentation of meals. Thumbs up to this gem of a restaurant!

This was our first time here, and we decided to try the restaurant here based on the reviews online. My husband and I had our date night here and we both loved the food and the experience here! My husband is a picky person when it comes to food and he even said he’d come back here again! We did the “date night menu” it was perfect for the two of us! -perfect price too. We love our server too, she was so on top of if! (I’m sorry I didn’t get your name) Thank you so much we will definitely come back again!

I took my son here for his 22nd birthday and what a beautiful delicious meal. We shared the bruschetta. Wonderful salty ham slices with fig jam and Gorgonzola cheese.
We both had the seafood risotto. Incredible taste in every bite and dessert was panacotta and tiramisu. Both excellent. The ambiance was awesome, the food was incredible. The only negative thing about it was that my night had to come to an end.
Thank you to the chefs and the servers for making my night one to remember. I will be back !!

Excellent food, great flavours. Lovely ambiance but a little cold in the winter in the outdoor area (drafty). Service was good. Wine is overly expensive. Definitely worth a visit for the food.

My first impression of the service was not a good one. I had called ahead to see if the restaurant was okay with us bringing a baby in a car seat and they said that our party size would be guaranteed bench seating so it would not be a problem. When we arrived, we were seated in the center of the outdoor patio with no bench in sight. At first, I just asked for an extra chair so the car seat didn't have to rest on the cold floor but they forgot or ignored my request so we took a chair from a neighboring table. I asked since there were two tables available where the benches were if we could simply swap tables. For some bizarre reason, the female server kept staring at the empty tables and couldn't comprehend how it would be possible to switch 2 tables with another 2 tables.
The rest of our dining experience was mediocre, other than the carpaccio, which was delicious. The ravioli wasn't well cooked and the panna cotta has defrosted fruit on top. The male server we had was nice and had a good sense of humor, but I will not be attending this restaurant again based on the lack of accommodating service and quality of food.
If your restaurant does not accommodate young families, simply just tell them.

I would recommend this Restaurant for someone who would like to try authentic home-made Italian cuisine. The portions were fair, and the food was served nice and hot. It is quite small, so would highly suggest making a reservation. I will certainly will be going back, and will try Lunch next time.

Inside the restaurant, it is very small and cozy. There is however a patio which pretty much doubles the seating area. The food was fairly good, and for Dine-Out the value was pretty decent. All in all, a good experience.

Came here for a romantic dinner out with the husband and we were blown away from start to finish. After reading many positive reviews we had to experience it ourselves, and we can honestly say it was one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Service - amazing! Food - amazing! I’m salavating as I am typing this out!
MUST TRY!!
