I recently went for a very late lunch, bordering on supper, with colleagues who wanted to try this restaurant and I kept my expectations low due to the negative reviews here. Well, I was surprised. This is a 3 story restaurant and we were on the main floor, which was nice and sunny. The food presentation was quite nice and portions generous. The Table d'Hôte included Lobster Bisque or salad. I opted for the bisque, which was a flavorful hit, then had pasta with fresh and sun dried tomatoes, basil and olive oil, with mozzarella cheese. As a garlic lover, I would have added a whack of garlic to it, but that's just me. One colleague had a Duck Confit Salad which was beautiful and she thoroughly enjoyed. Another had an Omelet Parma, which was also a hit. The 3rd person had fish which she wasn't overly excited about, although I'm not sure why. We all finished up with coffees and tisanes and a small brownie. For my bisque, pasta, tisane and sweet the bill before tip was $15.95CAD. One can't expect high end Italian for that amount, as some of the other reviewers seem to have expected. The service was prompt and very friendly.
