We booked. It was Sunday. Good job we did! Really good place, could cater from 1 to 100 people at a table! Huge place but felt individual enough in the self managed sections. They have a great 'set menu' where you get a free soup/salad and ice cream with every main course. You can upgrade the choice for a few... More

Nice atmosphere in a place where you can have a conversation. The meal began with fresh bread and soup...we both had clam chowder and it was good. My bride had the seafood linguini and I had the spicy chorizo penne. Both were fresh and flavorful. The local house lager was excellent. To finish up, we had spumoni and coffee, and... More

We were in Gastown and decided upon pasta for dinner. For starters we had the calamari fritti, my dinner partner ordered the manicotti while I opted for the seafood fettuccine alfredo. The squid tasted as if it were deep fried in stale and old oil and my alfredo sauce lacked flavor and substance. Neither of us could drink the coffee.... More

We stopped in here for lunch on a Monday and were seated (4 of us) within a few minutes. Tyler, our waiter, arrived in reasonable time and was pleasant and fairly efficient at his job. We had four main courses with soup and desert, a pint of local beer, a bottle of wine and a couple of cocktails (I know,... More
