This is a wonderful neighbourhood Italian restaurant with excellent food and service and a comfortable, cosy ambiance. The wine list is very good and on Wednesdays wine over $100 is half price. On my last visit there were several group parties happening, which made the noise level pretty awful, but usually it is fine and really easy to have a conversation with your dining companions.

We had the winterlicious menu. Bison carpaccio was very nice, altho slightly overcrowded by arugula.
Friends had the lasagna which was most delicious and satisfying. I had the roast pig which was slightly not tender - but then we are comparing against the best roast pig done the Chinese way.
The most enjoyable was the decanted Noelia Ricci Sangiovese which was half price because it was Winesday (Wednesday).
Want to go back and enjoy the 2013 Il Poggione Brunello rated 95 points on a good Wednesday.

Atmosphere was cozy and rustic in more of a European way rather than country style which was very comfortable. Service was ok. Overall a 4 out of 5.

Simple and delicious homemade food , well prepared and attentive friendly service

We go each year for our anniversary with our family ( three generations )

Great cocktails - good wine list - delicious pasta and pizza and desserts

We really should go more often but keeping it as an annual tradition is nice

Wonderful little gem. We came here for a date night, celebrating. My girlfriend is a massive fan of Italian... everything, so I surprised her with this venue, which she had never heard of. The food overall was very impressive; appetizers are outstanding, the rabbit was exceptional, and the pizza's are fantastic as well. Dessert: was also good, but the flavours could have been more creative and dynamic. Other than that, the food was absolutley incredible.

Service: Our server had a wonderful knowledge of the menu, which is something I really appreciated, as we hadn't been here before, and wanted to spend a few hundred dollars. He had a fabulous recommendation for wine, which was a amazing choice (we both work in high end restaurants with a large wine menu, so we were impressed) with a great price considering how good the quality of the wine was. We ordered some prosecco as well, and we were brought two of the same instead of one rose and one regular, however, this was easily forgotten when considering how smooth the rest of service was. Amazing job.

Overall: Will definitely be back again, and would absolutely recommend for anyone looking for a cozy date night/ celebration, in a smaller venue, with great food, wine, and service.

This is one of our neighborhood restaurants. We want to embrace it as an alternative to the other neighbor hood places that are also good or great but very casual. However we struggle to return more than once a year. Don't get us wrong. The food is excellent, the staff are great, and there is a lovely patio. Our frustration is that most of the wine list is in excess of $100 a bottle, which seems odd for a casual spot. And while the food is delicious, at $28 on average for a pasta dish, the portions are very modest and if they do contain meat, there is less than 2 oz per dish. We are not looking for third rate massive portions but when you want a pizza for dessert after shared starters and a pasta dish, this does not seem right. The large charcuterie platter had delicious meat and cheeses, but again the portions were absurdly modest with 3 crackers for 4 people. We really want to love this place but it just seems to miss the mark on price point.
