My housemate and I enjoyed a meal here this evening. We felt that the food was tasty, the portion sizes were generous and the prices were about on par with other places in the area. We noticed that certain days have half price pasta and think that this would be a day to go if you're looking for value for... More

Went to this intimate restaurant for Mother's Day dinner and came away very impressed with the prix fix menu, staff and overall service! Even though absolutely full, the service was very attentive and efficient. The lamb rack was extremely flavourful and perfectly done to taste; best lamb I have had in a restaurant for a long time! The fresh shrimp... More

This is a super little old fashioned restaurant that brings you back to the days of good service and good food. Monday's & Tuesday's they have a 50% off Pasta nights and the value is fabulous. I hesitate recommending this establishment as it may become too busy and I won't be able to get in. Lol. It's already very popular... More

Silly us...it was "Celebration of Lights" evening and we decided to "drop into" Ciao Bella for dinner. The Host graciously said that they were booked but if we came back in 30 minutes he'd squeeze us in. Of course there is lots to see on Denman Street so the 30 minute wait wasn't too hard. When we returned, they gave... More

Went on the Monday night half price pasta for an enjoyable, filling meal; predictably the place was busy but we didn't have a long wait. We were sat next to three tables of regulars which is a good recommendation. Staff friendly and efficient.

After our cruise we wanted to eat some good Italian food. This was a block from the Westin hotel and had a nice outside patio. They had a lunch special of pasta with soup or salad. I had a bolognese that was very tasty and served with warm crusted bread. The service was a little slow but the food was... More
