Great Dine Out menu and food was delicious but I’m wondering why the TBone steak had to be almost well done. Could have been medium and juicier.

We enjoyed a lovely night out with great food and service to match. We ordered the Seared Salmon and Veal Marsala. the Salmon was done just right with tasty vegetables and tiny bead pasta. Very delicious! The Veal was also very tasty. I'm sure we'll be back.

dine out menu that we chose was a poor choice, we had 2 veal main dishes and one was fine but the other one was so hard it felt like chewing a piece of rubber. my husband switched with me after my complaint and he finished the dish, mentioned it briefly to our server but somehow she didn't hear it. Everything else was good, just the veal wasn't cooked properly. we learned that we should just stick to pasta for this place!

Went to Trattoria for Dine Out. I ordered the onion soup but was given the salad. I told them that was incorrect and about 6-8 minutes later the soup came out. The soup flavour was a bit odd. It had some cabbage note to it. The Chicken Milanese was good with the blood orange, but the butter lettuce did not add anything to the dish. A non-alc drink was ordered with light / half syrup. It appears to have been full syrup as it was not drinkable. Tried adding water to it, but still too sweet. Better to stick with wine or beer.

Service was outstanding! Nice and quiet as a snow day so very few people there. Prices high for lunch fare. Wine list was more expensive than other restaurants carrying the same product.

Poor layout, tables are either in the main thoroughfare or under blinding spotlights. The ambience is that of a warehouse. Food was ok but we had to ask a couple times for forks and she forgot our dessert. Won’t return.

We made a reservation and dined here on New Year's Eve.
Seated at a table near the bar.
We all ordered different pasta dishes during Pasta Tuesday. Food came quickly. Tasty but could be better. Portions were on the smaller side. Definitely not full.
Ambience was lacking. Felt that was no privacy, almost like sitting in a cafeteria.
Men's washroom was felt everywhere and ladie's did not have paper towels.

Went for dinner on New Year's Eve and very much enjoyed our meal. It was pasta Tuesday and our pastas, though not huge, were good and tasty and a good deal at $13. It was also happy hour and our pizza and drinks were good. Service was ok - we had 3 different servers over the course of our meal and felt pressured to settle the bill before dessert as one of our servers was getting off shift.

Cheap cheap cheap! You could tell by the ingredients/meal that they did everything possible to reduce the cost of the good used to make the meal. Hardly a deal when they use cheap ingredients: chicken legs (restaurants only use that to reduce costs), low cost dessert (a couple hard donut looking things, the appy was far from interesting or tasty.

Not a deal when all you get is crappy food .

Disappointing and far below Glowbal’s usual standards.

If you can’t afford to play, then don’t!

The restaurant has changed for the worse since our last visit and we will not return. The food and price point was good but the restaurant was not in the best of conditions, tables wobbly, chairs were old and uncomfortable, noise level was overpowering.

The risottos that came with the lamb shank was under cook. Wish more TV's available can't really see the small screen based on where we seated.

Great vibe, friendly service, and food was delicious. The venue can get quite lively so be prepared for a bit more noise.

Overall, great venue, will be back for sure!

We had an early seating so the restaurant wasn’t too busy. The food came fast and the server was great. Our kids really enjoyed the pasta platter.

Always enjoy the food and service here. Great late night happy hour menu! It was a bit busier than normal so service was slower but still fine. Area we were seated was near a window and very cold which wasn’t the greatest. Overall still love this restaurant and had a good time!

I chose to come there to celebrate one of a few birthday dinners with my cousin. One of my fav dishes is the truffle pasta, which im very pleased to say, lived up to its reputation. Service was very prompt and friendly. Food and wine was delish.

Did not start well, as we were seated at a table where there was heavy traffic from the kitchen and a had a direct path to the bar - why would you even put a table here! Asked to be moved, waited 15 minutes, then I was told they needed the table back in 90 minutes! Really?!?! The hostess was not very nice, certainly requires more training on how to handle people! I would never hire a person like this for my business. This experience for me was very upsetting. I CANNOT recommend this location due this the poor opening act - totally not hospitable. On a good note, the pasta was delicious.

We had our group lunch here yesterday and was not so happy on the way we were treated by our server (Jen). Our reservation was at 11:30 and we were all seated on time except for one person. While we were chatting and waiting for the other person, at 11:45 the server came to ask us if we were ready to order. We told her we were still waiting for one more person and to give us a couple more minutes. She said and I quote "well it's already 11:45 and we might need the table." Mind you the restaurant was empty at that time. NO ONE was waiting for a table. I think what she said was uncalled for. It was rude and it ruined the fun for us. Thank God the food came quick and tasted great!

We had clams and mussels, and there were plenty of sand in them... and it was fishy too so it wasn't fresh. The salad was ok, and the feature spaghetti was just ok, my daughter like mine better. The seats were oily and we had asked the server to bring a wet cloth so i can wipe it clean, no one bothered to care.

While the service was fine, I can’t say the same about the food. My friend and I ordered a margherita pizza to share, and it was so oily and bland, we barely got through one slice each. Not worth the price.

The pizza was really amazing! I loved it how the chef was generous with the ingredient to cover the whole pizza with less crust left over! I would continuously go back

The food used to be better, prices were cheaper/better value. There used to be more options on menu as well. I had a linguini Vongole....it sucked..over cooked cheap seafood and no clams that I could tell. It is a simple good peasany dish from Naples, i dont know how they could have screwed it up so badly!!

I brought my mother and sister in-law there and they are both very happy with everything in the restaurant. Food was beautifully presented. My fish was grilled to perfection and my veggi was a combination of a number of ingredients deliciously cooked together. I can see the sincerity in their goal to prepare a great dish for their customers. My husband and my s-i-l would like their braised short ribs to be more tastier and juicer though. Portion was generous. I can go back any time and have recommended to friends many times already.
