We are regulars to this restaurant. The service always friendly but sometimes a little slow. The scallopini is one of the best I've ever had. This restaurant is better suited for couples or friends which we prefer anyway. Wouldn't bring kids.

I really appreciated the lovely service provided by all of the waitresses, particularly the blonde lady who seated us and Eliza (I think that's what her name is). They were very friendly, attentive, and we felt like we were not strangers...but friends that simply hadn't met yet :) The food was great, the restaurant had a cozy atmosphere, and we... More

This is my go to lunch spot in Varsity. I usually go at least once a week. Why would I go anywhere else? I have, very rarely been in the evenings as well. The food is great, especially the street food lunchtime specials. The pizza are innovative and delicious. Drinks list is surprisingly comprehensive and diverse for a small cafe... More

Went in with a bottle of wine for a quiet chilled night. It was not very busy with people generally coming in for takeout but had some chilled out tunes playing. We placed our order and settled in with the wine. Unfortunately a mix up with the order occurred and it was not placed with the kitchen. After 50 mins... More

Unfortunately the waitress was very softly spoken & we all had to ask her to repeat what she was saying, didn't help that there was a screaming child on table next to us. When we didn't order desert &... More

Really good value $12 lunch time specials. I chose the lamb souvlaki wrap and was told by the waiter that the bread (wrap) is actually made to order. Very funny waiter made for an enjoyable experience.
