Joanna, the chef and owner ensures you have an amazing experience. Food was excellent and service equally as good. Highly recommend. Only outdoor patio on Erie street with a pizza oven. Cannot wait to bring our daughter out this summer, to try the pizza.

The meal was fantastic! Everything tasted so fresh, the service was very good. A young lady served us and went out of her way to make our night special; it was my husbands birthday and they brought him out there home made tiramisu which was delicious. We have already gone back, this place can't do anything wrong. It's perfect

In my opinion this is one of the best Italian restaurants on Erie street. The wait staff is terrific. They are always very good and extremely friendly. Portion sizes are generous, plus all meals come with fresh baked bread and soup or salad so you definitely do not leave hungry. Prices are reasonable especially considering some of the other restaurants... More

This is a great place to eat. It is in such a beautiful, quaint part of Windsor. The food was terrific! it was also very beautiful and clean. They have a gorgeous section of the restaurant that can be closed off for private parties which I thought was very neat. The servers were very thorough and pleasant. I would certainly... More

We arrived with our guests and were seated immediately without reservations. Our waiter was attentive and personable but it took our food about an hour to arrive to our table. Maybe this works with those having drinks and appetizers, but that is not our style. No complaints about the food. We all felt it was one of the best Italian... More

We stumbled across this restaurant when we couldn't get reservations at another place. Our good fortune, I might add. Very clean and modern. I noticed one of the waiters polishing the wine glasses. A clue to me that the restaurant places a premium on doing things right. I really enjoyed the fresh bread and the prices are very reasonable. I... More

This restaurant underwent major renovations in the summer of 2012 and it really freshened the place up. I have been there twice in December 2012, once for a business lunch when there were only three tables being used and once for a dinner of 12 people on December 19th, when it was completely packed. Both times the food was absolutely... More

Beautifully decorated restaurant, especially during the holidays. The food is good and plentiful. I love the antipasto platters and the fresh bread.

The food here was excellent, well worth the price, and they have an extensive wine cellar that you can pair with any dish. Service was fantastic, and the atmosphere was great. I heard no complaints from other tables about the food or service. I had the privilege of going into the very clean, and organised kitchen. The owners were pleasant,... More
