    We love your restaurant and dine there about every six months. Last night was the best ever! Erica was a sweet and friendly server and everyone else who helped out was great. We shared both contorni (zucchini and snap peas), as well as the tagliatelle with lamb sausage and the chicken wrapped in prosciutto with the nettle polenta. Every bite just got better than the last! We finished by sharing the lemon ricotta cake with roasted strawberries and the dessert Moscato. Divine. Keep up the good work.

    Been a while since visiting. Our party loved the service and food selections on the menu. Appetizers were amazing from the bread and dips, to Mantoo and also dumplings. I opted for the easer salad then bean soup with Lamb - amazing!!. Others had lamb burger, pasta with shrimp - all delicious. Sorry we waited so long ….Looking forward to next time.

    A cozy place with delicious food. A little gem downtown. Quite pricey but the quality of experience makes up for it.
