We booked this place last minute as most other restaurants around town had at least a 30-45min wait time. Good place for an Italian restaurant

Food was excellent service was as well .
I was expecting a nicer room based on reviews as we were celebrating our anniversary. I suggest you let people know that you can bring your own wine for a fee ad the wine list was not as good as the food. Overall I would recommend this restaurant as the food. Value is excellent, with the above mentioned realizations

The service was amazing. Very friendly and accommodating. The food however was okay, nothing overly special. I think a better version of a mainstream Italian chain (think better Chianti's). If you're craving Italian and don't want a fuss but good service, I'd check it out.

So good, we ate here 2 nights. We can recommend the lamb shank with polenta (both nights), mushroom ravioli, pasta with duck confit, pasta with short ribs, arancini, house salad, tiramisu. Matt, are server, was excellent, very pleasant and knowledgeable. We sat on the patio, nice view of the mountains.

The service was slow. The wall paper was falling off the wall. All the decor was bad and the tables are cheap quality.
Too expensive for a tacky looking restaurant.
Food was really good.

I'm not sure how this restaurant is rated so highly. This was supposed to be our fancy dinner out during a trip to Jasper but it was a huge disappointment. The Lamb Brasato was more like a lamb soup, in fact all the the food was a soggy mess. The arancini was soggy and flavourless on the inside, the crostini's served with the meatball were also soggy. The bread served with the meal was just toasted sliced bread from the supermarket. It was just a disaster through and through.

We could not pick a favorite meal between the two of us. Our waitress was lovely and made me feel special on my birthday. One of my favorite places in Jasper, it is a right of passage to eat here at least once while in town.

We booked our reservation on Open Table and the only available time was 6:15. When we arrived at the restaurant it was totally empty and we thought oh oh. Maybe this isn’t that good. We were absolutely mistaken. About 15 minutes later the place was packed. Our waiter James suggested the Calimari as an appetizer and it was delicious. We both ordered a pasta dish..spaghetti carbonara and seafood spaghetti and both were incredible. James was an awesome waiter and we would definitely recommend this place to anyone coming to Jasper.

Ambiance is sadly lacking for a first class food service business. Maybe it’s Jasper but for high prices and sophisticated food service the restaurant is modestly more interesting than a college cafeteria. Server was terrific and food was interesting and very flavourful. Pricing in the area is very high and this restaurant is no exception.

Wonderful sweet spot between higher dollar upper crust of Jasper and the diner/pub grub offerings. Our family of 4 including kids 12 & 15 found interesting dishes (ziti mezzi ragout, wild hame carpaccio), enough flexibility to accommodate the kids (pasta with red sauce, seafood spaghetti) and super friendly attention fro owner/operator Kirin (also front of the house that nite) and server Matt. The pasta was truly al dente, to the kitchens credit and carafes of house wine well priced. It’s a small )~35 seat) room on the second floor above street level. The entrance is unassuming and could use a quick finish layer makeover but do not be off put. Open only a year or so you might want to grab a meal there now as I suspect Kirin and crew will be around the Jasper scene for a while, moving up in scale and price.

Great location in Jasper, friendly, attentive service. They need to provide kid's colouring crayons & paper for a more kid friendly environment. My food was ok (duck), my husband's was excellent (steak).

The service was amazing! It was my bf’s birthday and when I booked the reso online I wrote notes about table preference and requested they do something nice for him. So when I went to the bathroom, the waiter tracked me down and asked for my bf’s name and after dinner they brought out a dessert with a candle on this big wooden board and wrote Happy Birthday sand his name in chocolate sauce which was also on the house! Food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Would definitely come again!
