It was fine. Nothing special. My chicken parm was pretty pricey ($25 including pasta, or $20 for just the chicken and a tiny, oil-soaked salad), and very salty. Service was fine, atmosphere was decent. But, I don't know, I feel like Italian has so much potential to be AMAZING... I'm looking for thick, chewy, homemade pasta, rich sauces, homemade breads,...

A group of four of us had supper and each of us ordered a different meal. Everyone commented on the quality and portion sizes of the meals as well as the fact two meals were made with gluten free pasta with no drop off in taste. We had the beet salad before the meal and it was both easily sharable... More

My grandparents were in town and wanted Italian food, I'm not too familiar with the Italian scene in Vancouver but I'd passed this place plenty of times so figured we could check it out. I'm really glad we did. Our server was wonderful, quite funny and helped us pick our drinks. We all ordered something different and were very satisfied.... More

The decor and location is great. The food is less than inspiring, ordered the sampler and it was awful, clumpy chicken something that was inedible, canned tomatoe sauce on the other and an oily something that was at least edible and not soggy. The staff were wonderful but it doesn't make up for the clumpy plates put in front of... More

I love Chef Craig and he has become a personal friend. I never order from the menu because I allow him the creative freedom to serve me what is in season and the freshest ingredients. So amazing every time I eat there. Highly reccommend this restaurant and get to know your Chef!!

Unless you go on Tuesday nights (when it's really busy) for their $11 pastas, I would go somewhere else for better pasta for the same price. We ordered an appy, 2 pastas, and 1 pizza to share between 3 of us. The appy was horrifyingly small - the 2 "portobello mushrooms" for $11.95 were smaller than the size of my... More
