We had an amazing time celebrating our anniversary here. The service was amazing, the food was delicious, the date night package was a really great deal and the atmosphere/outdoor patio was perfect. 10/10!

Always enjoy this neighborhood restaurant. The staff are welcoming and the atmosphere pleasant both inside and out. Tables distanced enough for a quiet meal. The patio had heaters going and was pleasantly warm. It was our anniversary and we were welcomed with a glass of champagne which is a nice touch. It is a lovely place for a birthday celebration or special dinner, too. Though the menu is a short one as vegetarians we have enjoyed delicious pastas, risotto and gnocchi. The burrata cheese is yummy.

I don’t remember our servers name but he was super bubbly, so friendly, made us laugh, offered us some great options. He even turned the fire on and took a picture for us. Loved him! Me and my friend are now obsessed with the limencello drink. Would definitely come back, lovely vibe & good menu. Made for a wonderful day with my bestie ❤️❤️❤️

I panicked because I just wanted to leave. The physical distancing was not enough. Tables were not anywhere near 2 metres apart. 1 foot maybe. I love the restaurant but seriously, during these times the management needs to take precautions.
Our server was beyond excellent as always & food was lovely. However I cannot recommend now with the crowded patio spacing. The window panels between tables were not big enough. Perhaps I’ll return after I get vaccinated.

Was given only 1.5 hrs to eat. Was offered the 3 course meal which was amazing, however, waiter did not take our dinner order until an hour in. That gave us 30 min to eat our dinner. We then were given our dessert in a paper bag and told the next reservation was waiting. I would not recommend the 3 course meal with this time limit. Additionally, should order all three meals at once to save time.

The closest we’ve felt to being in Italy since, well, since we were dining in a lemon grove on Capri! We had the date night special (two appetizers, two mains, two desserts, bottle of house wine) and it was incredible. The ambiance was perfect and we had a wonderful night.

Outdoor dining patio was covered, warm and cozy. Really nice ambience. Food was hit and miss. Bruchetta was not good - just olive oil and oregano on tomatoes. Very bitter. Salad was good, pasta was good, however opted for a spicy sauce of garlic and peppers in one and the garlic was overpowering. Still taste the garlic the next day. Tiramisu was quite good, creme Brule was good but had a bit too much lavender. Overall really nice dinner, chef could benefit from a bit of less is more for some of the stronger ingredients

The food was Disappointing. Certainly not like it used to be when ‘Mama’ was in the kitchen. I had the Pappardelle and the pasta was over cooked and sticky, very little meat and not enough sauce. It’s too bad as I used to think it was like my Moms sauce. No longer.

We have been hoping to stop in to this beautiful spot in the middle of the West End since they opened right before the pandemic started. They’ve improved the patio with lights and a roof and have separated tables on the inside with cute old windows. We chose their “Date Night” option. The buratta mozzarella was delectable and substantial. The pastas had a satisfying tooth. And the wine lasted us through to our desserts. We are so glad this is in our neighbourhood. We will be coming back.

The place is magic, the waiter is gentle and kind. The food was good in quality and quantity.
The only bad think was that we were outside and even with the fire we were really cold (we kept our coats for all dinner). We were hoping to be offered a blanket or something..

Did not know what to expect. Had heard nothing about this place but saw really good ratings. Was so impressed with the service. It was really top notch. Our server was very friendly but not over the top. So attentive but not too much. The rest of their team was great as well. It just really seemed like such a well coordinated service. Outdoor seating was beautiful. Indoor was great. Nicely spaced. Not too loud. Then the food arrived and it was out of this world delicious. Everything we ordered was so good. The pasta was the best I’ve had in a very long time. Salads were great. Bread was great. Desert was great. The shocking part came when the bill came. It was ridiculously reasonable. Could not get over it. I’ve never written a review before but I felt this place really deserved it. The team that runs this place does a stellar job and deserves the credit. I highly, highly recommend this place.
