Excellent meal but portions were quite small, more so than in previous visits. Service was excellent and food taste and quality was great.

The service was terrible. Food took over an hour to be served and our server did not communicate well with us. When speaking with the manager, she blamed the kitchen and blamed us. From a food perspective, my fettuccini was over peppered and my wife's risotto was undercooked.

Terrible service. The sever seemed more intent on helping his friend at another table than us...we were an inconvenience to him.
We were in an out in 50 minutes. Didn't come and take drink order, and when he did, also took the meal order. He also couldn't provide any valuable menu advice. Appetizers came out in 5 mins, but no drinks yet (he forgot to give them to the bartender). Meal came out when we got our drinks.
Basically, we got no service, then everything hit us at once.

The food was very creative and tasty. The ambiance reminded me of the small family run restaurants in Italy. Owner operated, welcoming atmosphere. Unlike the big chain restaurants (move them in move them out .... all look the same)

Have never been to this restaurant before, was looking forward to a good traditional Italian food experience. The ambiance was good and the service was excellent…BUT, The food was sub par☹️. We ordered lasagna and it wasn't good at all! It was under cooked and tasted like they added sugar to the sauce? We also ordered the seafood ravioli, and for the price the dish was way too small in comparison to the lasagna, but it was what I expected as far as flavour.. Overall we enjoyed our experience of the people and the price was fairly reasonable at $120 including wine, but it was underwhelming given we went there for the food and to try somewhere new. Can't say I'll be back.

We went on a Wednesday night for our Anniversary dinner with the kids. Had a great night ~ the food was excellent! My husband and I shared an appetizer and we each got a main dish to split. The caesar salad was delicious ~ quite unique & very tasty. The halibut special over a mushroom risotto was superb. In fact, it was the best restaurant halibut I have ever had ~ cooked to perfection. The kids had a pasta with butter and cheese that they loved. For dessert, our white chocolate cheesecake with black cherries was the best cheesecake I have had in a long time. The kids had gelato and the gluten-free chocolate cake ~ Yummy! Everything was great ~ we will definitely go back!

We went here for our anniversary. We took our 3.75 year old and were unsure what to expect. Staff were friendly with our child and made her a yummy bowl of spaghetti with cheese. Enjoyable experience!

It started with a dirty napkin, then progressed with flies in a cocktail. We ordered the fixed price menu. It was 55 minutes before we received our first course , which was a salad course. Our second and third courses were pulled off the regular menu, even though we were made to think it was being created to order. Altogether our meal took just shy of three hours even though those around us had come and gone before we had finished.

I love this restaurant for the food but was disappointed with the ambiance. I had requested a table by the window but was placed beside a table of 20 people who totally overwhelmed any attempt to have a conversation with my friend. The waiter was constantly bumping our table in an effort to serve the huge 20 person table. Great food as always but pay some attention to seating especially when someone has requested a specific table for a special occasion.

Unfortunately our experience was not ideal. Great round table but very noisy. Out of 6 meals, 2 were satisfactory. We had to send back 2 dishes that were tasteless and a complete rip off. Calamari was decent. As they say 'price is only an issue in the absent of value'.
Unfortunate because we recently moved to the hood and were hoping to find that great place to frequent a lot. Waiter though did come through with discounting our bill. We may return for a glass of wine and appie.

Our server was very helpful and efficient. He helped with our menu choices and had a great send of humor. Always, nice when you are out to have a fun evening.

The food was terrific. We had the prawn appetizer (delicious and plump prawns) and two pasta dishes (both exceptional).

We are definitely going back.

The food and ambience are very good but not appropriate for our special occasion. The room was loud and I was hoping for a more intimate setting for an anniversary dinner. Our waiter was energetic, fun and helpful with the menu. Overall, a very good dining experience.

The food exceeded my expectations; amazing seafood special! The egplant parmesean serving was much larger than we expected, as we had ordered it as a side; but it was delicious nonetheless. Service staff was not very knowledgable about the wine list, outside of the fact that all the wines were Italian. Restaurant was nearly empty. Server was very nice, although somewhat inexperienced. We enjoyed her company and she was very attentive. We ended up staying for a few hours and making friends with other tables. Wonderful evening!

I made a reservation for 8 pm on Open Table and we arrived exactly on time. Our table was not ready and in fact we waited for over 20 minutes to get seated because they couldn't get the previous table to settle up their bill. We ordered a drink as we waited in the doorway as there really is no place to wait. The restaurant was full and bustling,however, 3 tables left just as we were seated. Even when we were finally seated no server came over to us until we asked for some service. By that time it was 8:45. We were frustrated and not impressed and almost just paid for our drinks and left. Instead we stuck it out and ordered lamb and calamari from the appie menu. The lamb was very thin and over done ... Like they had taken one lamb chop and sliced it very thinly ... Then grilled it. I wanted the seafood risotto ... But by the time they took our order they were out of scallops. The waitress appeased me by getting the risotto made with just salmon and extra prawns. The pene and spaghetti were easily forgettable. This may be a hot spot but I would not make a late reservation again. It seems if you are not there for the first seating you are screwed. Very disappointing experience.
