I went here on a recommendation from a friend for true Italian cooking and was not disappointed. Gnocchi Romana was incredible. Tasted like the fresh gnocchi my mom used to make with gorgonzola cream, peas and prosciutto. The servers are professional, funny and enthusiastic. Would go back in a heartbeat

The ambiance and atmosphere in the restaurant were so lovely. The decor just reminded me of a small town Italian restaurant and felt so cozy. The service was great, and the food was delightful - so so delicious. I will definitely be returning!

No proof of vaccine checked upon our arrival, although we had everything ready when we entered the lobby. Dining-room so drafty and cold, need to come prepared with a shawl or sweater or keep your coat nearby. My teenage daughter ordered penne arrabiata and asked our waiter if the chef could add some wilted spinach. He then proceeded to give a lecture that adding spinach would ruin the dish and my daughter embarrassedly told him to forget her request. Oddly enough, when our meals were served, my daughter's pasta came with the wilted spinach! My pasta was beef tenderloin and roasted red peppers baked with cheese. The flavour was nice but the pasta sauce was as runny as soup and quite disappointing. When we declined to order dessert our waiter seemed offended and gave us our cheque to pay immediately. The tables were all extremely close together and the guests sitting beside us were maskless and their proof of vaccination not verified either. Did not dine with the same level of reassurance as in other restaurants that are fastidious with checking proof of vaccination and ID before admittance.

The food is good, the ambience is amazing. However the waiter we had (an older man) was very rude . He did not provide us with bread , order took over 1 hour & he never checked on us. He did not provide cutlery for dessert. I heard him swear at me under his breath.

Responded on November 18, 2021

This is a very unfortunate situation the waiter swears he did not swear at you at all. I’m sorry for your experience he is very polite by nature most of the time and we pride ourselves on respect. Our apologies.

Service was sub par. One server with pink hair was incredible, kind and attentive however the older gentleman gave us attitude and poor service.

Food was okay apps were nothing great but the lamb and the gnocchis were very tasty. Very small portions though lamb was very very small

Great place and quality food in an old beautiful building. Covid protocols not followed though with tables too close and waiters not wearing the mask over the nose. Also very loud and owners should seriously consider exploring acoustical tiles in various locations. We will be back though after covid ends.
