Great foof and service. The terrace is a great option if you prefer open spaces due to covid-19.

The dishes were surprisingly big and the quality was amazing! I recommend the Misto di Mare for the sea food lovers! And the Osso Bucco.. was to die for.

Such a wonderful evening. We sat on the patio and had a pitcher of Aperol Spritz, a charcuterie board, and a margherita pizza and Chicken BBQ pizza. So good.

The place was great
Perfect for a date or a family dinner
My only commentary would be on the ac. It was so cold indoors that I had to wear my jacket in mid July

Quelle expérience horrible! Leur pizza > : fromage plastifié sur croûte brûlée au four électrique et *zéro sauce*; popletta (grosse boulette de viande en sauce) : *crue au centre* et baignant dans une sauce liquide sortie tout droit d'une boîte de conserve => renvoyée pour crédit! De plus, les prix son exorbitants $$$$. FUYEZ!
Talk about a horible experience! Their "Margherita" pizza: plastic cheeze over a no-sauce crust burned out in an electric oven; popletta (big meatball bathing in a reddish liquid sauce that came right out of a tin can) *still raw in the center* => sent back for refund! What's more, prices are so expensive it's a joke &$$&. STAY AWAY!

The food is fine, and atmosphere is good. But, poor inattentive service, despite the restaurant being only a quarter full. Our server forgot several of our simple requests, brought the appetizers out at the same time as the main meals and mentioned a tip multiple times.

My birthday dinner!
Service was good. Our appetizer of meatballs was amazing!! The octopus was good, also the Casa salad was yummy, however our Giardinera pizza was only ok. Was kinda bland and felt like the crust wasn’t as good or as thin as I thought it would be, unfortunately.

We had a group reservation and no one was at the reception. We waited a good 10 minutes before another guest actually went and got someone to sit us. Once we told them we had a table, they kept sending messages upstairs to check if our table was ready and the hostess heard nothing back and she had to go and check for herself and sit us. The whole thing seemed like there was a lack of communication and that they were missing staff. The food was amazing as usual but it was a unpleasant beginning to our evening. Especially since we had invited close friends from Toronto with us.

The food was amazing, aome of the best italian food ive had. The drinks were also good as well.

The only problem we had was with the tables. Alot of the chairs are mis matched. The original chair I had was too high for the table and my legs did not fit under the table. Afterbthe waitress going back and forth with the manager, they ended up moving our table.

Très belle salle à manger. Très bon repas pour un prix raisonnable. Le service était courtois et rapide. Le niveau sonore était élevé mais c'était un samedi soir et le restaurant bondé. Ça nous a pas empêché d'avoir une belle soirée. J'y retournerais volontier.

La nourriture était bonne en général considérant les prix, petite erreur au niveau de la cuisson du steak qui a été corrigé par la suite...le restaurant est beau et les tables ne sont pas trop collé, cependant le service était par moment agréable et à d’autre moment inadéquat, il voulait tjrs nous débarrasser trop vite et pourtant il n’y avait aucune presse le resto n’était pas complet à ce moment, lorsqu’on lui a dit que le steak était bleu au lieu de médium saignant il nous a obstiné sur ce fait et pourtant c’était évident, nous étiez 2 à la table à manger nos steaks bleu a l’habitude et il a finalement décidé d’aller le faire recuire ... par contre il nous bien conseillé sur le dessert et il était souriant mais dans l’ensemble je trouve qu’on a eu un service plutôt inadéquat malheureusement...

Very large restaurant and not busy. Was seated beside the waiters station and the waiters did not have any consideration for the customers. They were speaking loudly amongst them, swearing, joking around. Not very professional when you are trying to enjoy a meal and a bottle of wine. Will not be going back because of the unprofessionalism
