Description: Family owned Italian/Continental fusion restaurant. We have been a staple in the Yonge and Wellesley community for the past 13 years. Just recently we underwent a major renovation courtesy of the TV show Restaurant Takover on the Food Network. Ambiance is elegant and classy without being pretentious or stuck up. Our exceptionally-trained staff provide our guests with fast and efficient service while ensuring they feel relaxed and comfortable, never rushed. But most importantly, they make sure our guests feel welcome in our home.

This is a small unfussy restaurants with a nice vibe. We stopped in on a particularly bitter night and they'd nicely arranged the coat rack to block the blast of winter that happened every time the door opened. The food was pretty good for the price point. Mussels in cream white wine sauce very nice and worthy of the bread.... More

A great restaurant in a good, downtown location if you are out for a walk on Yonge Street. The steak was cooked to perfection. The salad wonderful. The service was friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere very "pub-like" and good fun on a Saturday afternoon. I look forward to going again. They have outdoor seating in summer time but for now... More

We dinner here before going to the nearby Panasonic Theatre. I randomly chose this restaurant and was happy I did. We both had the steak- while mine was a little more cooked than I would have liked, it had really good flavor. All our food was tasty and freshly made. The atmosphere was comfortable and the prices reasonable.

Brunch Review VIBE I got the sense that this restaurant bordered on diner/bar/fine dining. They have a nice bar near the entrance; cool leather couch seating in the back for a larger party, and then they have multi-coloured dinnerware that reminds of what you would find in a diner. Another diner-esque moment was when I had to dig through a... More

I was escorted to my table by my waiter, who offered me his arm. I started off with a glass of wine, and ordered the fish and chops. Very good fish in a curry batter and sweet potato fries.
