It's just great unpretentious food. I dare say this is the best calamari in the city - just the lightest dusting of flour, not too much sauce and perfectly cooked. The pizza is great, as is the service.

Great pizza; Wonderful, friendly service & Terrific pasta and apps. Clean and well managed. Call ahead or make reservations as there are private functions sometimes or busy on the weekends. Favourite real Italian pizza/pasta dishes in southern Calgary during the last 5 years.

Happened to have the rack of lamb special and it was perfectly done. Went great with the wine, and just the right portion size. The better half Arrabiata was perfect too. Great service as always.
