    It was my first time at this restaurant on a little solo date, and I must say the ambience was really nice. My waiter was such a gentleman, he let me know the specials for to the day so I ordered the braised short ribs, it was really good. I definitely will be back.

    I will never eat there again. The first thing that was bad was that they were understaffed. One capable waiter. Very long waits to get food so I assume the kitchen was understaffed too. This was a holiday- Family Day- so maybe regular staff had the day off. The two salads served to us were largely left uneaten. They were mainly red cabbage and quite unappetising. I told the person who cleared the dishes that the salad was awful and did not get any considerate response. My veal was bland. The accompanying spinach was overcooked. We asked for ordinary water and was charged for bottled water. The cost of the meals was high. The quality was mediocre. Never again.

    Phenomenal food, service, ambience. Something special like a candle to recognize our anniversary would have been nice. Told the hostess upon entering as well as made a note of it in our reservation that it was our anniversary. Very expensive.

    Staff are super friendly and very pleasant but food was terrible. Pasta chewy and hard and steak that was meant to be medium came way well done. Service was slow and there was a 30 min gap between apps and mains. Disappointing as we have always enjoyed our meals here. Maybe it was an off night. Not sure if ill be back though.

    We were very disappointed with our dinner. The food was mediocre. The grilled octopus appetizer was tasty, but very tough. My fish sea bream was fair. We ordered spinach and grilled mushrooms that were overly salted. The vegetables portions were teeny. One of us ordered the veal saltimbocca. I was not great. The side angel hair was quite good, so maybe we should have just ordered pastas. We ended with passion fruit sorbet, which tasted more like lemon. The service was good and the setting lovely.

    The restaurant was very nice, service was also great. However, for 2 different pastas that were $25+ each, I was very unimpressed. The flavour was nothing spectacular, a very simple tomato sauce that was quite on the watery side. The portions were also very small for such a large price tag. I didn't hate it, but I would not come back merely because of the price and value you get for the food.

    It was our anniversary and I made it clear to the staff and also noted on my reservation. My fiancé was disappointed that there was no mention or a special desert for the occasion. I took the blame for the whole evening but it was Sotto Sotto that dropped the ball in a big way. Every other restaurant we have celebrated has gone over and beyond for these occasions. I was very upset.
