Best Lunch Ever

Hat goes off to the chef and his staff, excellent food and service provided on all times I have eaten there. We travel over there from Glace Bay just to dine there.

I had lunch with my husband's 83 yr young aunt today. The service, the atmosphere was exceptional, but the food was over the top. Home made Italian pasta made today, with fresh herbs, tomatoes, Parmesan Cheese. The service and quality is consistent. I highly recommend this restaurant!

My partner and I didn't make reservations but got lucky and happened to get there five minutes after they opened for dinner service at 5pm. I say lucky because the place is small and popular, and reservationless people who turned up an hour later had to be turned away. The first person to welcome us was Rich, the owner and... More
