Simple pasta italian food done in a great way with a wide variety of sauces and pasta. Service is excellent at this always packed restaurant. Huge portions for a decent price, this place is easy to access, as opposed to the crammed downtown area. Always consistent in service and freshness / quality of food, we regularly visit this place.

Always good. Fresh made and plentiful. The baked dishes are the best. Come early or wait an hour or more in line.

I try never to go to places that make you wait in a long line up for hours. I have been here at lunch twice because I refuse to stand and wait. Sunday we did as our friends assured us if we arrived at 4:30 we would not have to wait long. We stood outside for 80 minutes waiting for... More

Get here early as this place always develops a line. Excellent flavours and extremely fresh pasta. The dishes are huge and can easily be shared. Salads are great but there pastas are amazing. I think I got the pasta amelio and have never had such a great dish of balanced flavours. The lasagna is incredible and the place knows how... More

Second time I have been there, went for lunch. Was not impressed with the pasta this time. Could not order lasagna as it is not on lunch menu. I find the portions are way too large. My sister in law who lives in Burnaby gets take out and she said the food is hit and miss. I was super excited... More

Very good selection. Great price. Pasta is very good. Always good for a meal or two from the left overs as well. Portions are massive- I have never finished a plate.

This restaurant is a well known gem on Hastings St In Burnaby. It appears that the locals love the spot as they are willing to wait outside for a lengthy time in order to get a seat. We had a small group of people that were in the wedding party for our son's wedding. Most pasta dishes are around the... More

After having waited for 30 mins we got in! We ordered one Pasta pesto (drained in pesto), one salad (drained in dressing/dip), and a lasange (drained in meat sauce).... More

I brought my extended family from New York here, and they were not impressed. We waited in the line up for over an hour, and then they pack you in like sardines. The pasta was horrible, tasteless, dribble we can not believe why people line up for this crapola!!!! I could whip up a better pasta with limited ingredients. I... More

We met some friends here for dinner. About an hour wait to get in....in my opinion food wasn't quite worth the wait. Maybe friends hyped it a little to much, I don't know. I was a little disappointed. Like everyone mentioned, the portion sizes were huge and good value. I ordered the tortellini and would say it was pretty average,... More
