Handmade pasta and mozzarella. Yum. I can attest that the focaccia bread, calamari, veal & spinach ravioli and the lamb parpadelli were outstanding. Service was wonderful. It's a little noisy.

Nice atmosphere and well prepared dishes. I started with the heirloom beets on a bed of what appeared to be micro greens with goat cheese. If you like beets like I do, they were excellent. Also excellent was the chicken carbonara.

Wonderful downtown restaurant. A great feel from the moment you are greeted by the valet. A warm and friendly greeting was also received from a host and hostess. A nice contemporary atmosphere with multiple levels, very pleasant feeling. Our waiter was pleasant, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I had the Caesar salad, and Beef Carpaccio as my main course, it was... More

This is a great restaurant and you can ask for half portions and try lots of different flavours. Staff is fantastic. The Lamb Pappardelle is rich and full of flavour and just plain amazing. The beet salad is great. Love this restaurant.

The restaurant was remarkably busy and full on a Monday night in August. The atmosphere was modern and exciting, but because of all the modern surfaces and the crowd it was very noisy. We had a table for three people and we could barely hear each other talk across the table. The food was very very good with interesting dishes... More

Great atmosphere. Limited menu with high prices and small portions. Enjoyed my meal, but can't say that I would go back

Everything about this place is first rate. From the hostess reception through the dessert everything was great. The seating is comfortable and not cramped. Even though the place was packed the service was prompt, efficient, and friendly. There are a wide variety of menu selections and a good wine list. They even prepared a special pasta dish that was not... More

We were in town for one night and had already had a horrible hotel room finding afternoon due to a agri convention in town that day. We did finally find a nice downtown room but given how busy everything was we started to worry we wouldn't find a table at a great restaurant. We did the open table thing and... More

In town for a church convention, we were dressed, well, darned casually and we had no reservation. But we were treated like a quartet of royalty. Our waitress explained the possibilities, waited patiently as we enjoyed drinks before ordering and then brought out our choices at a leisurely pace. We chose the butternut squash ravioli to be shared at the... More
