No Joke. It was in my beer, my food, my face... Though the staff and management did their friendliest best to keep us from walking out, it was a poor experience. Fruit flies were in season and they probably did what they could but they were everywhere. It would have been best for them not to sit anyone near the... More

Atmosphere- crowded and not good for a romantic night and seems a little nice to want to bring the kids. Food - average Service - average and nothing special Price- not worth what we paid.

Right from the start it was a positive experience. We were seated quickly and our server was a very smart, capable and efficient lady. She took drink orders from those in attendance and arrived smartly when our friends joined to ensure they too were given their beverages. Menus followed in good time and orders were made. We all had something... More

Me and my husband sit down for lunch, we got a lunch menu and ordered 1 to share. Waitress came and said we are not allowed to order one for both of us. I said that nothing is written on a menu to state that it cannot be ordered for 2 people to share. Then the owner came and said... More

We have a team lunch. While many people ordered pizza, I tried grilled salmon. The portion is normal. But it is a bit salty and over done. My co-worker got her chicken with salad at the side. There was a live bug coming out from the leaves! I don't know if I have to say the leaves are too fresh... More

A bunch of us went for lunch one day and the food was very good. Everybody enjoyed their choices. The gnocchi was the favourite and so was the pizza. They have nice salads too. Our server was good but nothing special. He seemed preoccupied.

Take out order for housebound spouse and I. What I ordered evidently doesn't matter: I got a child's portion of penne aribarratta (ordered an adult portion) , and my spouse's gluten free pizza was smothered in soy based cheese EVEN THOUGH I said "a light sprinkle." Was willing to pay full price for a third of the product! And they... More

I almost always go for the pizza. Its well made in a proper pizza oven. Servers are always there when you need them but dont interrupt. Great for business or pleasure.
