Great service. Our waitress was able to memorize and deliver completely different orders for 7 people without taking a note. After appetizers all tableware was changed for a new, including cutlery. This was very kind. After main course, invisible a team of waitresses came, cleaned all table in a seconds, and prepared for desert. Very relaxing ambiance, we were able to have conversations with the family without raising a voice. The table was given so we felt very private.
One suggestion I would make: when people make notes about special event celebrations, it would be nice to make a small gesture from the chef of restaurant. We’ve had 2 anniversaries that day, and I hoped for it. As well as after meal digestive, to follow nice Italian traditions.

Special shout out to Reza, made the experience fantastic, and his recommendations were great. The food was great, had the lamb, it was fantastic, great ambiance, and great service. On the pricier end of the scale, so not a budget restaurant, but not overpriced; I looked up the menu so knew what to expect so was not a surprise.

Good food for the area. A little pricey given its location in a nondescript strip mall.

So this was my second time going here. First time my table of three was jammed in a table for two. I thought these things happen and give it I another try. The obvious issue with the restaurant is the preferential treatment given to locals who frequent the place. It is clear that they get better and more prompt service.
Given the poor service I would recommend you go else where as you are paying downtown prices and service is not good

My friend and i were disappointed. We paid $200 for so so service and burnt octopus. When we told her she didnt seem to care much at first.. she actually defended it as supposed to be that way. It was black and carcinogenic lol The shrimp appetizer was great definitely the best part and rosemary bread but our seafood plates were like i said burnt and average at best. ONE scallop! Definitely not a fine dining experience. Wine ridiculously priced but delicious and unavailable in LCBO so that was ok

Good points ambiance is amazing interesting menu perhaps just an off night ?

The service was excellent, very attentive and there were so many people looking after us! The dinner was very good 4 of the 5 orders were perfect and one was only one was ok. The octopus was grilled to perfection and was very tender. The only dish that wasn't perfect was the fish, not sure if it was over cooked or seasoning had broken down the flesh, but the fish was a bit mushy.

The restaurant was cold and uncomfortable. For the price, you would expect table linens on the tables. Tables were jammed in and crowded. The service was not timely or attentive. The food was mediocre at best and the vegetables were awful. The wine menu is poor with very little selection. The main courses included next to nothing with them. Overall, dinner was a big disappointment!

I visited Sarpa with a friend on Saturday, January 20th. We both ordered the spaghetti vegano and both agreed that the meal was very bland with little flavour. Very disappointed. The waitress was good enough but we felt that we were rushed and had very little personal connection. I understand that the restaurant can get busy but it is important to maintain a level of personalized service . It is not a fast food drive through restaurant. A meal that was not creative enough and lacking in any flavour was over priced. Vegan/vegetarian meals can be creative and very delicious!

Finally, one would think that a restaurant would offer a red and white house wine. We were told there was only red to choose from. Also, only one copy of the dessert menu was offered to share. I think two would have been more appropriate.
