Great view, good service, good italian food

This place has been here for ages, apparently under the same management. I last visited here 20 years ago. It was good then and is good now. Prompt friendly service. Big lunch for 2: $45.00. Tidy washroom.

What a surprise it felt like stepping into an Italian restaurant in the 1970's . Good location, great views of the water . There were 3 tables occupied in this enormous old lady. The waitress who served us was affable enough but thought nothing of discussing her personal life across the room to her co- worker, making so much noise... More

Food was very good as well as the service. Very good Italian food and would eat here again. We would've preferred sitting next to the window, but it was fairly busy and no tables available. We would eat here again.

Looked great, but we arrived too late at 8:55. The menu had lots of pasta dishes that sounded yummy. We wanted to eat here , but could not.

The first night in Prince Rupert we went next door to the La Gondola. We ordered Italian and there was lots. The next time we ordered we split the Fisherman's platter. The shrimp salad was really good but the platter was not. You only got a sliver of ling cod, 2 small pieces of salmon, calamari was not any where... More

Of all the places in Prince Rupert, I decided to try this one........... The service was excellent and the decor definitely is of the past, but in the day I am sure this pace was amazing and had amazing food. I ordered the Antipasto (small); it was very good. For second appetizer, I tried the Calamari (very good), but served... More

I had dinner one night and enjoyed the meal. It was right next door to my hotel so very convenient. I had the Risotto with meatballs and it was tasty and filling. Staff and owner were very friendly and it was a relaxing and enjoyable dinner with a nice view.

Just great food, simple, not expensive and not rushed. A great view of the harbour if you can get a table near the window.
