Great Italian

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

We came here based on TA recommendations; we are from the US. This place was cozy; the piano music was very nice. The food was good but not the kind that made us gush. We had the veal scallopini, the lasagna, and the beef carpaccio. All dishes were served well but not in a very inspired fashion. The male waiter... More

We were walking along Denman and decided to try this restaurant. Wonderful food, great portions (it was lunchtime) and wonderful service. Our waiter was from Eastern Europe, such a friendly guy, made our visit that much better. I will go back next time I visit Vancouver.

This place has authentic Italian food with half price pastas on Monday and Tuesday. We got the Mediterranean linguini and insalata special and shared the meal. Great QQP (quantity quality price).

Lots of choice of pastas with lots of different sauces. The portions are very big, almost impossible to eat it all. The wine list was ok, but we decided on the house wine special which wasn't that great. The place is nothing special but the service is good and the food is good as well. We happened to go at...
