    Without a doubt the best Italian food we have eaten in 5 years in Toronto. Right up there with Spago in Singapore.

    Food was good, very noisy on main floor. Staff was attentive and available at all times. Salad (special of the house) was amazing. Would definitely go back. Not sure why they are in open table when they don’t give you dining points when you dine there - that is disappointing to say the least.

    Food was excellent as was the service. The 2015 Barbera D'Asti was delicious, I thought the wine list quite nice and the specials were different and satisfying. It was a quiet night, not overly busy, but a great night out with an old friend nonetheless. I will be back!

    Dinner was very enjoyable. We sat on the second floor which was very quiet so if you like that, it was perfect. The veal parm was excellent and so was the Caesar salad. I also very much enjoyed the bread with oil they gave to start the meal. My wife and daughter each had a cocktail which is not typical for us but they both enjoyed them. We will definitely be back.

    This was a very fine restaurant. We were introduced to it by a friend who had been there several weeks ago. Food was excellent. We had a table of six, and each person was very pleased with the meal they had chosen. Staff was very good friendly and exact in their service, even though they were understaffed, there was no excessive waiting. Overall a very pleasant experience. I would recommend it. Cheers Marcy
