“service with a push”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2011

We went for dinner on a Saturday night and were seated at our table with the comment "You'll be gone in an hour and a half right?" The rather rushed service ensured that we'd be done in less time than that. Wine and appetizers were out immediately and the entrees were out before we were half done the appetizers. Given the none so subtle hints we decided to go elsewhere for dessert. The server dropped the bill on the table with quick "Thanks!", without even pausing to make eye contact.
The prime Steveston location will probably ensure this restaurant will never be short customers, but I think I'll be going elsewhere.

“Average food and service but great atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2011

We dined in a party of seven for lunch and found the restaurant to be quite average with nothing that stood out as either terrible or spectacular. Not a bad place for lunch.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2008

Lived in Vancouver for almost two decades and, like most, didn't know Richmond has always had an Italian restaurant tucked away in a Chinese-oriented neighbourhood. Enjoy the homestyle decor, food was a pass.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2008

If you want to go somewhere quiet, hidden-away, intimate, romantic, with a few items on the menu that you won't find at most other Italian restaurants, this is the place to go.
