Two days later and I'm still thinking about all the dishes I had. This was a delicious and fantastic experience. I hope this becomes a permanent restaurant in Toronto.

I love how under each dish on the menu, the chef wrote a brief description of their thoughts and process. It made it feel personal and I like that! The food was one of the most delicious meals I have ever tasted (and I'm quite the foodie)! I hope and wish for this to be a permanent restaurant instead of just a pop-up. Much love!

The food was amazing and I was so glad that we made it to this pop up before it closed . The servers were nice and once we were sat at our table we were looked after really well. Only downfall being that having reserved a table for 7:30 and arriving at 7:30 we had to wait at the bar for 20 minutes before being seated and were waiting 5/10 minutes to get a drink at the bar . This is understandavke though as it was a pop up that was extremely busy. Sad to see it closing and hoping it might come back again at some stage during the year .

Food was amazing!! Very rich and flavour is out of this world. Venue is very cute as well!

However...

Had run out of things...only had 2 out of 4 drink options and the server we had did not know her drinks..zero help at all so we had to get another server to serve us. Also ran out if the cannoli dessert :(

Food was excellent. One of the best meals I have had in a long time! However, the restaurant space itself was quite drafty and I found it rather chilly at our table. towards the end of the meal I had to put on my winter coat gain to warm up. I am not sure if this was felt throughout the restaurant or just where we were seated (back table towards the bathrooms).

Food was decent, service was good but music was too loud and inappropriate for the vibe of the restaurant. It was also very cold inside, would recommend bringing a sweater or wearing something warm.

The food was wonderful. Our server seemed distant, never smiled once, looked in a very bad mood. Although, all the reviews state that the service was wonderful, so I left her a good tip anyway and hope that whatever was troubling her is better now.

The food was great, except for the cannoli that wasn’t bad but really wasn’t that good. Aside from that, The door being open let in a bit of a draft but we didn’t bother telling the hostess to close it.

Flavourful and clean tasting Italian plant-based restaurant. Sad to see it's a pop-up ending in a couple of weeks. Certainly, hope it pops up somewhere again soon!

Food was good but service wasn’t great. Wait staff consistently asked my friend if she was done with her food, even though she said no several times. The kicker was when they asked me afterwards if said friend was done when they went to the washroom. They also handed us the bill even though we asked to look at the dessert menu.

There are 5 dishes on the menu. My husband & I ordered 4 different dishes, so we could try a bit of each (porridge, crostini, capellini, fettuccine). All the dishes tasted very similar, same creamy nut/cashew flavour & texture, which made it quite boring. Ingredients were nice, but everything sort of tasted the same. Also, expected more interesting vegetables in the dishes. It was all noodles & nut cream. Overall it was good.

The menu is short, yet creative; each item possesses a story driving its creation, allowing the guest to appreciate the authenticity as well as the chef's attention to detail. The food was absolutely beautiful as well as the environment of the restaurant itself. The best dish on the menu was the cannoli; we ordered extra to take home. 11/10 would recommend to anyone.

Excellent experience! Loved it and will go back. The menu is very limited, which I'm absolutely fine with, but some of the dishes have some heat -- something that really limits your options if you're sensitive to heat. And I took off one star for a very lack-lustre cocktail. But overall it was excellent, with the BEST cannoli I've ever had.

I would only recommend for a friend who loves masterchef or if they're vegan and want a new experience.
The ambience was too quiet for me and there weren't enough food options in my option.

Wooden table had rough edges and I got a splinter. The music was very good. We were seated at the front window which really needed a clean for a better street view. The three mushroom pasta was really delicious. The menu is very limited.
