We were at a table by the front door. Cold and busy. It was our anniversary and we were there with our best friends. Probably will never go back. Small problem but big problem.

The food here is phenomenal but the service sucks. I think the waitresses are racist because every time my boyfriend and I go there, they seat us at the worst table (the one closest to the kitchen) and we also get seated last even when we're there first!

We have visited this restaurant on several occasions and always been very happy with the food and service. Our last visit was with a group and they served us as a group and did an excellent job.

Overall, the food was okay. It was a little lacking in flavor and I had to add salt and pepper to my meal. The procuttio in my pasta was clumped up at the bottom of the dish and the calamari was a little bit over cooked. The desserts,however, were delicious. Overall, the food was a little over priced considering its... More

Four of us had the pleasure of dining here recently and it was amazing! We all had something different and the food and flavors were unbelievable. Had made the reservations after reading that it was a busy spot and so glad we did. Would not have gotten a table otherwise. Very impressed with the service and the chef/cook even made... More

What else can I say. We went with friends and clients and had a great time. Modestly priced wine list, but carefully chosen and fairly priced. Nice menu variety, their mussels were particularly good as was the Caesar salad. Spaghetti and meatballs very tasty as was the spaghetti alla carbonara. Service was top notch and the bill for four was... More

We just moved from Montreal to Kitchener and we were craving for good authentic Italian food and we found it in this quaint yet cozy restaurant. Service and ambience was awesome! My husband and I devoured the delicious gnocchi in Gorgonzola sauce. Yum! One daughter enjoyed the lasagna and the other a tasty pizza! Dessert was Italian tartuffo or tiramisu.... More

We were recommended this restaurant for great Italian from a friend of ours, who lives in the area. We thought we would give it a try for my Husbands birthday. We were told since it is very tiny to make reservations a head of time, and did so for 6 of us the day before. Being our first time we... More
