I ate here for 3 months straight while in penticton! Also recommend this to anyone that visits penticton. This place serves the most amazing pasta I've ever had. I've been to some so-called Italian food guru restaurants but none came close. The seafood carbonara is beyond magnificent! I've never ever ordered it because I don't like seafood in my pasta...

We stopped into this great little place and sat at the bar and had a martini. The decor and atmosphere is really cool, and inviting. . There are couches everywhere and it feels super amazing! Service also outstanding. Margaret Peachland

Enjoyed a couple of meals here and was very happy with portions, presentation, and taste. One evening I just had coffee and dessert and was treated so well.

Did not like the room and the food was not worth the visit. service slow in a partially vacant room. Would not go back as there are lots of options close by....check out the wineries restaurants before coming back here.

I highly recommend the Antipasto Platter on their appetizer menu - enough on there for two people to share. The servers are very friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the food is delicious. All in all, one of my favorite places to go in Penticton.

Ate in this restaurant and enjoyed our meal. The service was great, the menu offered a variety of options - we all found something to eat which can be a challenge at times. Had drinks from the bar - a bit disappointed as I found my drink had a strong alcohol taste. Typically when I have had frozen Margaritas in... More

Dinner with reservation on a Sunday evening. Patio seating busy, inside seating not. Chose inside, as the outside seating chairs looked less comfortable for table dining. Decent view of the lake front in or out. Good service, nice atmosphere. Spinach and tomato salads were ample size, nicely presented and tasty. Chose the Chicken and the Eggplant parmesan mains. Both were... More
