“Great pasta dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Been eating here for 19 yrs and the food is still the same. The line ups start before the kitchen is open, still the same. Its funky, its delicious, its laid back, its entertaining when there is musicians and when there isnt. Staff are fast, efficient, friendly and customers get wine or coffee while standing in line. How unique and wonderful. Has the feel of a big city, fast paced restaurant with great quality food.

“Very nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Had a great meal here last week. The food and service were great and the place was very busy during lunch hour. We had the salmon burger which was pretty good and the spaghetti and meatballs which were excellent. We come here each time we come to Victoria and would return again.

“Solid lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I love pag's for lunch. The bottomless soup and bread is fantastic and you can pick from one of two daily soups. The focaccia bread is addictive and tasty. Service is good for such a busy spot. I have yet to eat dinner here, but regularly come for lunch.

“Even half a plate is more than enough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Inspired by the reviews on Tripadvisor, we went to this place. It was busy and noisy, as already mentioned in former opinions. We were asked to wait for 15 minutes as the place was fully occupied. In fact we got a place after not more than 10 minutes. Service was swift and correct. We ate very good cheeseballs as appetizer, the main dishes were pasta with seafood, and pasta with tomatosauce, accompanied by a New Zealand sauvignon blanc. We drank a coffee and paid around 70 CAD. Even with the choice for 'half a plate', we needed a doggy bag.
Those who like peaceful atmosphere, do not come. Those who like good Italian food, do come. You will not regret.
