    My friend came in from Edmonton and I took her to Trattoria Vesso to eat after being so impressed with the restaurant during my first visit. The city was closed down due to the weather so the server and staff were able to give us a little extra attention to go along with amazing food. I will gladly be going back and taking more friends with me.

    Delicious wood oven pizzas. We did a Dine Around lunch special and it was terrific. Tried the Margherita pizza, roasted beet salad and tiramisu. Chef Vesso Mrakic takes pride in preparing authentic and flavourful Italian pizzas. Our server was helpful and courteous. Will return again!

    Great atmosphere, amazing food. I had the arancini balls and the goat cheese and beet salad to start. I loved them, I could have eaten just those and would have been happy. Best beet salad I've ever had. Then I had the Americana pizza which was also good. Our server was the best, she suggested items, was funny and helpful. It was my birthday so we ended the night with limoncello shots and the chocolate mousse. Perfect ending to an amazing night.

    Outstanding service from Grace, she was exceptional. The cocktails were fantastic. The restaurant music was much too loud and the Pizzas were not fully cooked in the middle. A more evenly distributed topping would prevent such inconsistencies. The wine selection was sub-par and overpriced for the quality of the wine. I was generous with my star review but in truth, the experience was not worth the price. Dinner for two was over $200 and we both awoke with gastrointestinal issues the following day.

    This is always a family favourite. We always receive 5 star service here and the food is amazing. You really feel like family here. My kids love the homemade pasta and me and my wife love the fire roasted pizzas. The kids were given colouring pages and dough to make their own creations. Cocktails and wine list is top notch.

    Everyone was so friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was quaint and comfortable. We were very impressed by the gluten free selection, especially when it came to the dessert menu. The drink selection was well curated, with special mention going out to the limoncello. The hand-made pasta I enjoyed was next level, and the gluten free pizza my husband had was the best he has had in the city. We highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to visiting again in the future. Five stars. Standing ovation. Well done.
