From the kale/egg starter to the rabbit wrapped in prosciutto to a modified bolognese- everyone was very pleased. It is the quietest open kitchen I have experienced with a team that seemed to work together intuitively.

Unusual selection of fine dining appetizers, delicate & flavorful. Halibut was excellent with asparagus and fava bean puree. Highly recommend. Will return when in Vancouver, BC again.

Great little restaurant near Gastown and downtown with an Italian theme. Pasta with boar ragu was brilliant as was the sorbetto and nettle risotto. Prices are good too and the atmosphere is charming and relaxed. Go!

Service was on point and was grateful for the wine recommendations from our server. The standout dish was the tagliatelle bolognese, but really, everything was outstanding.

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
