A gem

Definitely a first choice for italian food in a small atmosphere. Front staff Flora and Dina are friendly and professional. Chef Joanna is well versed in her cooking abilities. Will continue to recommend.

Fantastic place. Food is amazing and reasonably priced for a fine dining restaurant. Great wine selection, great atmosphere, great host greeting the guests too. Gave us a free dessert as we were celebrating a birthday. Will definitely come here again.

We dined at this restaurant with friends for their annual "wild game" feast. Johanna the owner and chef did a brilliant job in putting together a delicious menu with small plates of quail, duck, moose, venison , wild boar, pheasant and bison. It was brilliantly crafted to please the palate. Absolutely delicious !!! This place is surely one of Windsors... More

We have been here twice. The 1st time was awesome!! Good food, exceptional customer service, and they made Mushroom Risotto per our request even though it is not on the menu. The staff, though, has absolute impeccable customer service. The 2nd time...we went back specifically for the Mushroom Risotto....which was just as delicious as the 1st time, but...my main course...

Stopped in randomly with my girlfriend on a Friday night. Food was excellent and so was the service. Nice ambiance to the restaurant as well!

our waiter Josh has absolutely no personality at all. He would be better off working at a hotdog stand. He rarely made eye contact with us, and when he asked us questions he was pre-occupied looking elsewhere as if he was day day dreaming, very bizarre.Service was also very slow. and the pasta did not take fresh like restaurant claims.

Dinner for 4.Our 2 guests were late and there was no rush to order. Our waiter was excellent, the food was amazing. We all ordered a different meal and we all agreed the food was cooked and served to perfection. Love this restaurant and have dined here before so would definitely return and recommend.
