Be sure to solicit wine advice from Edo who is the sommelier. He has very deep knowledge of wine and of the their wine list. His recommendations are always spot on. Our mains were pasta with wild boar. Oh, so yummy. His recommended wine was awesome. We finished with a cheese plate and matching wines. Again, Edo provided perfect matches. All very wine educational as well. Leah provided great service from start to finish.

It is an Italian restaurant so it is expected to listen to pure Italian music (classic/ opera or something like Pavarotti) or modern Italian songs such as Eros Ramazzotti or the i famous La Chante mi cantate... etc to make the ambience more Italian. The music played was very bad techno or modern disco style. Terrible choice of music.

I'm sad to say this was a disappointing experience. At the price per person, the restaurant was very dark and the ambience lacking. Service is minimal as it's a buffet but even so wasn't outstanding. The food selection was decent but I guess I'm not as into seafood and should have factored this in. One kind of eggs benedict was a little unimaginative and I just think the food and flavours were lacking. Sorry! Wanted to love it but not worth the money in my opinion. Bonus for the bottomless mimosas but not enough to have me return.

THIS PLACE I cannot write enough good things about our experience!!!! Our server was Leah. She made sure we were taken care of from beginning to end. We were sat in a corner that made our night more intimate. Superb service from everyone we encountered. And to end the night, we were surprised by the restaurant staff with a dessert platter welcoming us to Toronto! They also gave us complimentary first round of drinks which was absolutely sweet of them. I can’t thank them enough on how amazing everything was.

The gnocchi which I ordered for my entree was over salted, which made it difficult to eat. All the other food we had was excellent. The ambiance was cozy and romantic. Overall, still a solid 4+ dining experience.

The service was superb as it was professional but not uptight. The cocktails, ambiance and noice level was perfect for a Saturday evening. We dined on the Chef's Tasting menu, but unfortunately it felt more like a Prix Fixe. The dishes were nothing to write home about considering this would be considered fine dining. For us, the dessert was the best dish. Perhaps ordering from the traditional menu would have been a different experience.
