Our favourite restaurant reliablyOur favourite restaurant reliably excellent food and service.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat MealThe menu has lots of choices and each item I chose was cooked perfectly.
I always enjoy eating here and recommend it to others when they ask where to eat in Halifax.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerWe had our first date here 20 years ago so went back for the anniversary. Food was excellent, service was outstanding and the ambience was good. The restaurant was rather noisy from the mechanical systems so it detracted from the quiet atmosphere a restaurant like this should have. With a bit of thought the ambience could be elevated to outstanding at very reasonable expense. As a side note, the prices were surprisingly similar to what they were on our first date - that was impressive. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give them a solid 8.5, but a 10 if they quiet the background noise and make it more intimate!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWorld classThis is a truly superb restaurant. It has a very nice feel. The staff are friendly (but not excessively so) and knowledgable about the menu. The wine list is fairly priced and interesting. There are not a lot of choices within each region or style, but the wines on the list reflect a keen eye for quality and are good examples of their type - neophytes will not go far wrong, and oenophiles will find many good choices. On top of that the food is truly world class. Great use is made of local ingredients and the dishes are prepared with the subtlety and appreciation of freshness that is characteristic of the best Italian cooking. If it was in Calgary I'd eat there every week. Worth a substantial detour if you appreciate good food.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFine DiningEvery course was very tasty. Presentation was outstanding.

When choosing a special place to celebrate her 60th birthday da Maurizio was her first choice. She was not disappointed, from the welcome at the door, the service, the presentation, the portions and taste we were extremely pleased. Thanks to the chefs and server for a great 60th birthday evening.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great experience.Always a great experience. Kelly is the best waiter there!!

Casual chic.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMfood for thought3 of us dined together and the 3 of us all found the food to be very good. There was a very good selection of wine of all price ranges which I liked very much. It was excellent to have a 'value' menu to choose from as well as I found that to have excellent choices and 2 of the 3 of us opted for that. One small and not very significant thing was the waiter at our table was a bit standofish and that may have been attributed to the fact that we were 3 girls who had lots to talk about and wanted to take our time. We were there for the evening and the waiter seemed just a bit irritated with us - but was still very accomodating and professional. I also liked that the bottle of wine that we ordered was taken off the table.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service!Friendly and warm welcome by the staff. Very attentive to individuals.
