The service was excellent. The food was really good. The only thing was the olive oil and bread was a bit bitter but it's complimentary so no complain there. Overall it was a fun and cozy atmosphere!
i thought everything was fine. nothing really stands out in particular. it's solid Italian food and solid service. check it out!
The burrata appy was so amazing. The atmosphere is beautiful. It was my birthday and the waitress brought me a massive slice of tiramisu which was probably the best tiramisu I’ve ever had. They also had happy birthday written on the plate in Chocolate. 10/10 would go again.
We had such a disappointing experience. The food was not good, and the service was so poor it became laughable.
Food was better before when Italian kitchen was on Alberni say years back no tobasco sauce sucks was looking forward to the food but was disappointed.
Sorry for the harsh review.
DELICIOUS FOOD IN A BEAUTIFUL SPACE RIGHT BY A PAY PARKING GARAGE.
WE RESERVED TO CELEBRATE A FRIEND'S BIRTHDAY BUT NO DESSERTS WERE OFFERED, WE ORDERED A DELICIOUS ONE FROM THE MENU. THEY DID WRITE WISHES IN CHOCOLATE ON THE PLATE AND ADDED A CANDLE. VERY FRIENDLY.
I would recommend this restaurant as better than average. The staff was very pleasant/friendly. The new location is pleasant. I was a little disappointed with the menu. I am a person who appreciates traditional food, (one might say old style or even basic). I believe this restaurant embraces an avant garde philosophy as each item on the menu had an element I was not familiar with. Our food was good, tasty but not delicious.
We received exceptional service from our waitress. She was very accommodating to our 2 year old. I will return!
Extremely expensive for lunch. Don’t like new location as much as Alberni
We were sat next to the kitchen entrance which was very distracting/noisy, our server disappeared and our food was disappointing, other than the bison carpaccio which was delicious. Still wouldn't rush back.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Sat and had dinner at the bar. Bartender very attentive. Menu great (Bison Carpaccio amazing) Atmosphere energetic and fun. Hardly wait to go back.
A lot better than the old Italian Kitchen- more room.
Server was fabulous- very friendly- looked after Every need without being intrusive- definitely a “go back to”
We were met at the door immediately and seated just as quickly. Our waiter, Benjamin, was personable and very professional. One colleague is celiac and her dietary requirements were accommodated to her complete satisfaction.
Great waiter, great food. Best calamari in the world!
Please change or dust the horrid chandeliers in front dining area. Liked the ambience in old location better but it’s the food/service that counts and I give 5 stars for this. The rack of lamb leaves you speechless.
Great food & drinks! Even better staff. Loved it so much we ate here twice for dinner out of the 3 nights we were in town.
Overall good. For the price food was fair. Was a birthday dinner and without mentioning it waiter brought over a desert with happy birthday written in chocolate. Very nice touch.
New location is outstanding. Great feel to it. Menu is smaller but very good. Many different than the usual items on it. Service was great.
Waiter was amazing so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious but very small portions for the value! I love this place but some of the tables are super crapped trying to fit in as many tables as possible with the space given. Where we sat just up the stairs they should have 2 tables along the wall not 3 as it was not the most comfortable it was quite tight and squishy.
The food was delicious, but the portions were quite small. There was about 15-20 pieces of pasta, no joke you could count it, and the veal was delicious but would have been nice to have a larger side eg more veggies that are not soaked in the cheese at the bottom but on the side ,
Def recommend this restaurant and next time will stick to the spaghetti and meatballs because you can never go wrong, it’s filling, and a larger portion. this is still one of my fav places. Just what happens when you try new things on the menu :)
The temperature in the room was cold as was the bread served to us. The food was only so-so.
Great food, great bread, great service 😁
Was excited from the “ratings.” However....my veal Milanese was weird. I asked if it could be made as a veal parmigiana and was told “no,” even though the prep is essentially the same. Add mozzarella and Parmesan and lose the senseless greens. It would have been an improvement.
Our waiter, Tim, was nice enough. Good personality. Could have been more attentive.
Bison carpaccio and veal appetizers were very good.
I would go back, but not soon.

I had reserved using OpenTable and noted that we were celebrating our girlfriend's birthday. We were welcomed with glasses of bubbly as we perused the cocktail list, arranged by "Sheila" who had taken the booking. So lovely! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, even shutting the place down (but never felt rushed out the door)! The restaurant had a lively atmosphere and great vibe on a Friday night - we'd certainly go back again. Thanks for the great service :)
The waitress gave a first bad impression. She didn't introduce herself and appeared to have an attitude when asked any questions. She rarely came by and faked a smile just for the tip. Cocktails were not good and the waitress didn't ask if we liked them. Ambiance was very busy and not a relaxing atmosphere. Tables are very close together and people at another table kept coughing. In my reservation, I stated it was a birthday but they had no idea or cared. The food is the only thing that saved the experience but for the money I expect pleasant service to go with the good food.
Everything was great, with exception of being charged for an $8 bottle of Fiji water which I didn't ask for. I also asked for sparkling water which was also $8, however while over priced I wasn't upset about that. Food was perfect and service was excellent
As always, the food was amazing and the service excellent. Sheila made our evening special. Thank you, Brenda and Denny
They have lost their touch. Just not the same restaurant. Presentation is lacking , pasta was cold.
Valentines day .
Gave us pasta with nothing more than tomato sauce, my best fiend could have cooked this in his 1st year in uni. they forgot the veg in the veg pasta. Then sent us out winter veg on the side. lol
28 $ for a bowl of pasta that was literally the least flavorful dish I've ever had outside of my house. Bread was from packet -you guys are fooling nobody If your going to charge at least deliver on the taste. I seen 4 dishes returned to the kitchen in 45 minutes.
Server was lovely. Not her fault. Its the mangers fault and the chefs.
Great food and great staff!! Would definitely return to this locations.
Valentine’s Day. My scallops in the seafood salad was cooked very poorly. The mains were average, desert was good though. Overall it was a good experience, the food not so much. Probably because it was bust.
The pasta is made fresh every day and it’s incredible! Now the best part to me is going to an Italian restaurant and learning that the chefs are ACTUALLY ITALIAN- How refreshing is that!
The ambience is beautiful, cozy and romantic.
The price is very reasonable considering it’s a little hot spot right in the heart of Vancouver city.
Overall since they moved from their Alberni st. Location it’s improved 100%. If you haven’t been yet , I would recommend going. It’s not just good food, but it will leave you full and satisfied! Enjoy
New location is nice, the service other than our waiter was good.
Outstanding pastas and seafood. The Calamari is large enough for two and perfectly prepared and the seafood salad is quite reasonable for the contents of large prawns (2) and scallops (2). Also try the Amatriciana pasta made with ground chicken. Quite spicy but very delicious. Highly recommended.
Spaghetti and meatballs a must! Great wine list! Good location.
Very enjoyable experience
Everything was amazing!! However one little thing that i would change is to put more dressing on the caprese. The tomatoes aren’t really flavourful this time of year and tasted like nothing.
Good service, was loud and busy, food was good but menu limited. Was an expensive night out. My advice is to check out the menu before you go.
My wife and I tried it but will not come back.
The ambience, the service and the wine were fantastic. Unfortunately the food was just average. The presentation of the food was good but the taste was just not what we expected for the caliber of restaurant.
The service was excellent. The food very good. Bright, new interior.
First class bu can quite loud when the places fills up.
Highly recommend that you try a meal here!
Very nice restaurant. Decor is lovely. Service is great. Food was very good. Great place for a date night, birthday or any other special occasion.
