    From our table to the ambiance we were impressed. Service was wonderful. Best Caesar salad, other salads were excellent and very generous portions. Lovely brusheta and delicious bread. The mains were excellent. The risotto, two different fishes and mushroom Pasta were delicious and well prepared and presented. We will be back.

    Great service. My friend’s pizza was lacking in sauce and crust was not crispy. My linguine dish lacked seasoning. Presentation was excellent. The large shrimp were cooked to perfection. The dish just lacked flavour. Staff were prompt to supply the requested pepper flakes and hot pepper oil. The dishes were warm. :) Pizza was not hot (temperature).My linguine dish was nice and hot. The tables were set with care. Everything looked lovely. The washroom was clean. Staff were very polite. I liked the restaurant. The food was just below par. I eat out only rarely because I love to cook myself and am fussy.

    We were seated right next to the bar where martini shakers, two of them were being shaken very loudly. The table was so close to the bar, the chairs were to touching the bar. The noise level was so loud we couldn’t hear each other talk. We asked to switch seats, which was accommodated. However, we were told we were lucky a table was available. We made reservations a month in advance. We were also told that it would have actually been “ok” because they don’t make that many cocktails in a night. Food was just ok, overpriced for what we ordered in terms of taste. Ordered the “spicy” shrimp, which was bland. My family had pizza, which was pretty ordinary, comparable to a children’s pizza at a chain/franchise restaurant and the linguini was again ok. Also should note, the pizza was not from a child menu, rather an adult entree. For an upscale, Italian restaurant, it’s overpriced for bland, just ok food. I would highly suggest going elsewhere!

    The food was delicious though more expensive than the online menu prices. Our orders were taken quickly and the food came in good time but after we finished our main course and the plates were taken from the table the waiter never came back to take orders for coffee or dessert. It took a long time to get his attention to get our checks so we could make the theatre on time.

    Really good service, although we had about 3-4 different staff wait on us so we didn't know if any one person was designated to our section? Overall though, the food was good. It didn't exceed expectations but each plate was tasty enough.

    Excellent food as usual. My waiter seemed less motivated to serve me (I dined alone) than some of the other tables. It is the first time I have experienced that in this restaurant. I would have appreciated a dessert menu offer. He was polite but I felt like he didn’t think it was worth spending too much time or effort on me.

    Service was disjointed. We could not see determine who was our primary waiter. We got bruschetta after we started our entree. Appeared disorganized. Previous visits have been great. Hoping this a one off.

    A very enjoyable and well-paced pre-theatre dinner on a weekday evening. Excellent food & service and clearly very popular: the restaurant seemed fully booked. Wine list a bit on the pricy side, particularly for wines by the glass.
