Our food is a reflection of the melting pot of cultures that has gentrified the Queen West neighbourhood in Toronto. The menu has been designed for guests to share plates, in an effort to create a convivial and social dining experience.

Our Wood-Fire Pizzas are a cross between Roma and Neapolitan styles; cooked in a wood-burning M.A.M pizza oven imported from Italy. It yields a crust that is thin but sturdy. Wood-fire capabilities are critical for our menu as the flavour imparted on the food is exceptional and unique.

Our cocktails are equally thought out as our food. Our bartenders serve up a no-nonsense cocktail program featuring fresh, seasonal ingredients that are all made in house.

    Our server was amazing! Loved the vibe and decor. The only thing is the patatas bravas just a tad over spicey (too much of the seasoning) it’s all we could taste so unfortunately we couldn’t finish it..it was over powering. But honestly everything else was great. Best chia seed bowl ever. I would recommend and come back 100000%.

    Food was amazing, service was really good. Noise level, quite high for my liking, hard to have a conversation unless you are very close to each other. Overall is a really great place for dinner.

    I didn't fit in the chair at my table - issue was immediately resolved and I had a delightful dinner with my best friend. Every single thing we ate was perfect; fries (cooked, seasoned to perfection), flavourful romesco asparagus, the peach salad was beautiful. The pizzas were perfectly cooked, the dough is on point, toppings were generous. finished with a velvety panna cotta dish that was very well balanced, we were blissful. Our service was wonderful, attentive, friendly. Will be returning.

    It was quite disappointing actually. I made the reservations after searching for restaurants in the neighbourhood online. The restaurant seemed understaffed and very busy which was fine, we were out for the night for a good time. The issues besides waiting for a long time for our wine, once we put in our orders we never saw our waitress again for 1 hour. We finally waved her down and asked for dome bread and oil to hold us over. She is a bit annoyed and made sure she emphasized bread was $9. We were starving so we said ok. Issue 2 …waitress comes right back to us to sincerely apologizes but forgot to put in our food order We say ok but if she could please get us bread asap we would appreciate it- she adds she will make up for it and of course not charge for the bread. We again wait for bread and an additional glass of wine and by the time food comes our appetite and overall mood has changed.. we ate 1/2 food asked for our bill assuming They would compensate for quite honestly not a good experience or evening out with 3 friends who come into the city for an overnight once a year but nope …..bread was not charged but thats it, quite honestly horrible customer service. It could have been an off night because reviews were good which is why i chose this restaurant in the first place.

    Food was mostly very good. One dish (the short ribs) was a bit too oily and heavy. More shareables would have been great. I’d asked about a birthday dessert on Open Table and no one answered. Service was a bit disappointing in that front. And very noisy restaurant. Hard to talk and be heard. But lively and fun neighborhood.

    Great brunch and a neat atmosphere. Ordered the blueberry pancakes which were delicious. The restaurant has a neat antique decor which is a cool energy to be surrounded by. Good spot for a date and for a gathering with a group of friends in Toronto’s Queen St W neighbourhood.

    What a great neighbourhood spot! We ordered the Picante pizza and the spaghetti Diavolo and...wow...was it all amazing! We accompanied our food with a delicious bottle of super Tuscan wine. Service was attentive, but we did not feel rushed. We enjoyed the vibe of the restaurant so much that we moved over to the bar to enjoy a craft made cocktail. I really recommend this restaurant for great food and drink.

    Overall a pretty good experience! Food was quite good, the pizza was nice but veryyyyy thin, and the burger didn't really taste like anything special. What was really disappointing, though, was that I told the server it was my sister’s birthday, and she didn’t do anything special to celebrate. Would’ve been nice to get some sort of smell dessert at least.

    We went to this place for brunch, not many people in the restaurant at noon but it still seems short-staffed. Our coffee is served when we almost finished the meal and wanted to leave. Limited choices on the menu. The food is okay, but the mushroom added to my egg benedict was way too salty. Nice environment overall, but won't go for a second time, for brunch at least.

    Unfortunately, the resto didnt live up to the hype. The ambience is funny and not in a good way. The huevos rancheros were "untasty" and boring. Tge service was nice and kind. They did serve freshly squeezed orange juice though, you rarely find that!

    We came for some cocktails and something small to eat as we were going somewhere else afterwards. We each got an appetizer (jerk chicken was very good and the oyster mushrooms were so so) and a dessert. My friend got the tiramisu and I had the white chocolate brownie. Both desserts were very disappointing. The tiramisu didn't have any taste of espresso or any liquor. My brownie was stone hard and not moist at all. Maybe next time if I go, I'll make sure I'm hungry enough to try the pizza or burger since that's what most people were eating.

    Came here my second time around, and I'm confident to say that the service is excellent. The interior design is inviting and ambient. The volume could escalate quite a bit, so I'd recommend going during off-peak hours or relocating somewhere more quite if you want a more intimate conversation. The staff ensures your glass is never empty. They are attentive to your needs. Food is excellent, but I'd recommend you take advantage of their weekly deals to get the best value. And I would also note that gluten-free options are not cost-friendly.

    I had the short ribs, which were excellent. My wife had the ceviche. It was tasty, but it was offered on the "dinner" menu and the portion was quite small. I think it should be characterized more as an app. Service was a bit uneven. For example, we told our server we wanted wine, but we finished our dinner before she came back to take our wine order. We liked the atmosphere. Wine menu struck me as poor value for money.

    Food was great! Maybe the best Brussels sprouts I ever had. Service was laughably slow, taking 90 minutes to go through two courses. Asked our desserts to go because we just needed to leave. Getting the check and paying was painful. Had to request service most of the times we received it.
