    The wagyu carpaccio and the rose pasta was pretty good although the tuna I thought was only ok. My favourite was the raspberry bliss drink and the hazelnut espresso martini out of the night.

    Went for an early dinner with my husband and our teenage boys; loved the vibe. Servers were attentive and polite. Boys had pizzas, which were excellent- especially the duck one. I had the branzino, which was also very good. Finished meal with a slice of chocolate cake, which was divine. Kids enjoyed a mocktail Bellini which was expensive ($12), but made with quality ingredients. Perfect special night out. Will return.

    Simona is a great spot right on the lake - nice enough for date night but casual enough you feel like you can laugh out loud. It's also nicely laid out so there are big open areas for a group but also cozy, almost private corners for more intimate evenings. Food was mostly really good, service was friendly but a little inexperienced. The restaurant has just opened, though, and the staff are very eager. That will no doubt improve.

    I had a great experience at Simona! It’s beautiful, the service is great, the appetizers were delicious (we got the calamari and meatballs) and the pasta was delicious and great portions (we got the mushroom pasta and the bolognese). Oh and the dessert was also delicious! I’m looking forward to checking out their patio when it opens in the summer.

    We came here for our anniversary. The first of three waiters didn't come see us for 15 minutes (but went to other tables that came after us). Brought us our drinks but forgot the water. We ordered a bunch of things to share. The 'focaccia' was a hard, dry mass with no bubbles or softness. The second waiter forgot the oil and vinegar we ordered so I asked for water and sides from anyone I could find. The meat and cheese plate was ok, except for one of the sausages was 90% and almost completely white. No one checked on us. The space was beautiful. We will not be going back.

    The food, service and ambience is very good. I think a serving of complimentary warm breads would add to the culinary experience. I have been to your restaurant twice in the last two weeks and look forward to coming back again.

    The food was great and very flavourful. The service however was disappointing. The restaurant was nearly empty and we had two servers tending to our table (not sure why) and yet the service was slow, we sat with empty glasses of water and bottle of water empty for quite a while we were so thirsty and no one to be found, they forgot to bring the condiments we asked for until the meal was nearly done, they never cleared our appetizer plates away and our table was small and crowded - since the restaurant was empty why did we get the smallest table beside another couple instead of something nicer more spaced out? Strange. Anyway, my boyfriend had to get up and go get a server at one point for water and they were all huddled hanging out behind the bar chatting. A bit unprofessional for a restaurant trying to make an impression and tending to a total of 2 tables… disappointing given that the food was very good. Food 10/10 service 5/10

    Beautiful new restaurant on the waterfront! Service was amazing!!! Food was really good too! We had the bruschetta, and kale salad to start…salad was a little bland but the bruschetta was very flavourful with heirloom tomatoes. Pizzas were thin crust and delicious!! We will be back for sure!!!

    New restaurant (this week) and 1st visit so was curious to see how this beautiful restaurant is and was expecting a few bumps (only 1 as some wines were not available). Food was very good (appetizers of bruschetta + meatballs were excellent, fresh in-house made pasta (gambero rose) was beautiful and the pizza (Salsicca) was perfect (great crust, just enough sauce and nicely cooked in the middle)! Our server Danny was very good and assisted us with our choices from start to finish. Opening cocktails (Catania & Boulevardier) were unique and very tasty and the wine (Valpolicella Ripasso 2018) fit the menu perfectly. What a pretty setting inside and once warm weather is back the patio should be a gem. Will definitely be back and will become a local must-go when we need something close. Great spot!
