We were disappointed in the uninspiring menu - any type pasta with any type sauce. I ordered spaghetti with pesto and prawns. Tasteless. Even more salt and pepper didn't help. My husband ordered the lasagna with chard. It was bitter and poor tasting. Neither of us finished the meal. Nothing on the dessert menu was tempting. What a disappointment.

A wonderful sandwich, moules frites or great pasta of the day makes this friendly place ideal for a casual meal or just a glass of wine. It's a spot for locals and visitors to enjoy the view from the deck and be close to the art galleries and farmers' market.

We visited auntie Pesto more than once during a 5 day stay on Saltspring because the food was so good - amazing Halibut steak. The setting right on Ganges Harbour was very enjoyable.

Excellent food. Friendly servers but not enough of them. Lots of seafood on the menu which was very creative. We enjoyed our lunch so much that we returned the same evening for dinner (despite the slow service!)

A nice location with tables on the balcony...viewing the boats in the marina. My BLT was good..heritage tomatoes, thick well cooked bacon. Caesar salad was well done..very nice!

My family and I ate here for a pre- wedding celebration. Lovely patio, good food (esp the pasta dishes). Booze on the pricey side. Service was attentive.

I enjoyed a very good meal at this restaurant,it is just tucked a bit out of sight. The menu was quite diverse and quality was very high. I had salmon that was truly...awesome. The side salad was was totally fresh and exploded with flavour. Dessert was a Key Lime. Sadly, (I am an expert Key Lime Pie face-stuffer), although fresh,... More

Yummy Italian food, nice wine list. We both had pastas and they were very good. Ask to sit outside on the patio.
