“The great food was a surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Why a surprise? Looking in through the window doesn't show the restaurant very well, but the delicious food and pleasant & attentive service easily won out. The brushetta ($8.95 -- house bread, tomatoes, basil, garlic and olive oil) and the bacca ($9.50 -- mixed greens, seasonal berries, balsamic vinaigrette and goat cheese snow) appetizers were quite delicious and the Fettuccina de Mare ($23.05 and they were obliging enough to switch out the mussels for some additional of the other seafood) and the Gnocchi Aragosta ($23.05 - PEI potato gnocchi, Island lobster, cream, herbs, spinach and arugula) were tremendous. As you'll see from the photos the food was plentiful (and very fresh) and came piping hot. Other diners around us were also having the Gnocchi and everyone was commenting on how delicious it was.

A convenient location to the Confederation Centre of the Arts which is basically just across the street.

“Hankering for Italian!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

After a game of golf and touristy activities we found the restaurant. There was a nip in the air so we decided on eating indoors.Excellent meal! Attentive wait staff! Good atmosphere!

“great patio”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This is a lovely street to dine outside in the summer.The food is fairly consistent and the pizzas are pretty good.The caprese salad is generous,and the wine well priced.However someone needs to teach them how to make a negroni,the one had was watered down,skimpy and uninspired.

“cold”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

The staff were warm, but the food and ambiance were not. I could tell there was something wrong with the mussels when they were still in the waitress' hand. They looked like they had been cooked the day before. I tried one, and sent them back. Too bad, because the pizzas we ordered as our main course were very good. Didn't really enjoy the meal though as it was cold and drafty in the room. I wore my jacket and cap during the meal, as did several other patrons. Felt great to get out on the sidewalk thereafter, even though it was only 17 degrees outside.
