We had drinks at the bar and were so comfortable and had such great service that we ate there too. They gave us free appitizer with our cocktails. Husband has pasta and I had the salmon. We both enjoyed our dinners.

I liked my meal, but it was a very basic pomodoro sauce, was a bit bland, and I had to request Parmesan cheese, my... More

The previous time I was here I left quite disappointed. Now under new management, I was willing to give a new try. I ordered their bruschetta as an appetizer (prepared with marinated tomatoes and ricotta) and it was good. I then thought ordering the linguini with clams and asked our waiter if the pasta was pre-cooked to which he answered:... More

Dropped in for lunch time meal. Staff very polite, great food choices. I stuck with the traditional Bolognese and a great choice it was with plenty of flavours. Look forward to coming back next time I'm in Toronto.

Nice restaurant but the food is not. Apps were good, main was terrible. Do not order the Sunday chicken. It should be taken off the menu and frankly I am surprised they offer it. Will not return. One last thing, the waitress spilled two glasses of prosecco on me with many apologies but no offer to comp the drink. not... More

It is a nice Italian. And some of the dishes are good indeed but nothing will surprise you and nothing is unique. It is the ordinary Italian tastes and choices which does not justify the prices. The service was very slow.

Fairly good aps but the osso buco is outstanding. The rack of lamb is well prepared and the pasta is delicious. Desserts are a little predictable but I did enjoy the pana cotta. The wine list is good with some fine selections if not a tad pricy. Service is young, fun but professional. This is a a good trattoria type... More
