Exquisite flavoursome food, superb homemade pasta all washed down with an excellent bottle of rose from Provence! Always a treat to eat at this neighbourhood gem.

Reasonably good food, moderately priced with a varied menu. As we ate outdoors, the ambience was First Avenue, and people watching in that district. I will say that because the restaurant is by a City Bike Stand, their seating is right on the sidewalk, so sometimes I felt like the passers by were literally going to knock the food right off my table, but on the other hand if you are into people watching, you're right in the fray.

Outstanding Italian cuisine in an intimate, charming setting. Staff are welcoming, attentive and knowledgeable about the food and how it is prepared, We tried the calamari fritti after reading another diner's review. Outstanding. We highly recommend the Rigatoni Cipullo. The sauce is incredible. Our new "go to" Italian. Can't wait to work our way through the menu.

This is an absolute neighborhood gem. Wanted to enjoy the weather last night and booked a table for myself. The ambiance on the patio was great and service was fabulous as well. I was craving veal piccata and even though it wasn’t on the menu they made it for me and it did not disappoint! Will definitely be going again!

Never a disappointment! The food is always delicious and the selections are broad enough and all well so you never get bored. They have a huge outdoor space now and everything is appropriately spaced with plexiglass dividers.

My family and I decided to go here tonight for a good authentic meal near our apartment. We were completely amazed by how delicious this restaurant was. They have daily specials read to us by the waiter and ordered several appetizers & drinks. The pasta selection is amazing and they were able to accommodate for my gluten allergy with some gluten free pasta. The pasta were beyond amazing everyone at my table finished their entire plates! The desserts are also read to us by the waiter and we’re amazing. To round out the night, the waiter gave us each a drink on the house (of our choice) as a celebration of our first time to the restaurant. The hospitality was beyond incredible and we will definitely be back.
