    Highly recommend to visit here with friends or on a date. Lovely spot, great service, and food was way better than I expected. I loved my Kale Caesar salad with grilled chicken, my friend's burger and fries was devoured and the cauliflower tasted like Planta's bang bang broccoli. And we've eaten around the city and know good food. This place is kind of a hidden gem!

    Ambience was great, we got there at 5:00pm and it was pretty quiet. Our servers were both personable and attentive. Food was delicious and the truffle fries were worth the upgrade. Donuts for dessert are a must. It started to pick up toward the end of our meal and had planned to go back in for a drink after the show we were attending but it was packed. Will definitely be back!

    Honestly, interesting ambience but the service was awful to the point where we have decided to never come here again. I don’t know if the establishment needs to hire more staff or they need to be more aware, but we waited for 40 minutes and didn’t get checked up on once by our server. I had to go to the bar myself to purchase another round and retrieve my bills because we were tired of waiting and had somewhere else to be. The server also completely ignored us to tend to customers that were coming in and sat them to a table right next to us without checking up on us once - which I should add at that point he only came to our table to ask for an extra chair not even acknowledging that we may need additional help.

    Started with a cocktail named Aviation; So pretty and soothing. I had the tuna poke and companions had burgers. Both so different but so delicious. Server was amazing, service was quick (we had a show to get to nearby). Ambiance was perfect with the windows wide open for fresh air and people watching.

    I normally frequent the Roncy location and have been there many times. Always great! Decided to give the Little Italy location a try and although it's smaller, it too delivers the excellent service and food you'd expect. Had a great meal catching up with friends. Would definitely come back.

    Went out for dinner and had the chicken wings, chicken tacos and Cobb salad along with la Miraggio Mocktail. The chicken wings were very tasty, crispy and juicy. Delicious! 10 out of 10! Cobb salad was large! It can be for 2 people. Chicken tacos were also delicious! The Mocktail was so good I ordered 2. Overall I enjoyed the dinner.

    We visited for Valentine’s Day and ordered from the 3 course prix fixe menu which was $50 per person. I ordered crab cakes and ravioli and my husband ordered beetroot salad and steak frites. For dessert we ordered the donuts. All the food was delicious and well portioned. Cocktails are expensive but also really good. Atmosphere was intimate but not crowded. Service was prompt and courteous. Overall would definitely return to try the regular menu!
