This is an excellent place to dine - and there are many good options in Olds. We have never been disappointed. One of our favourite “special meal” spots.

Excellent food always. Very consistent and very delicious. We drive 2 hours one way to eat here and do it as often as we can. Chef David’s food is as good as high end restaurant in the cities. Well worth the drive. Very reasonably priced. Highly recommend, you won’t be disappointed.

We had dinner on Sunday, November 22, 2020 and it was outstanding. Rack of Lamb was the special and was delicious. Also the shrimp fettucini and pork dishes were great. Caesar salad perfect and dressing light, not too much garlic. Best of all was the orange creme brule for dessert. Great to have a nice restaurant like this in town.

This is the Italian restaurant that rural Alberta needs. Good portions of amazing food for a fair price. I'm a big fan of this place. It's a brand new restaurant and I've already been twice, the second time with friends.

Delicious meal, in a very clean and quiet atmosphere. Everything we had was a real treat. The lamb shank was so well prepared and tasty.. and the homemade fettuccini with it was a side dish star for sure.. something so simple with SO much flavour! Had the crème brûlée for dessert but it was gone before I got a photo.. so good. Local beers available as well. Will be back!

I've been here twice and was extremely satisfied with the food. The first time I had the special, calamari salad. The calamari was cooked perfectly! The second time I went for prime rib - excellent! The red wine selection was also enjoyed ;)
Next visit will be for brunch. . .
