Excellent way to end our trip to Vancouver. Killing a few hours before flying back to Scotland ,we discovered this lovely restaurant which offered a brilliant range of Italian food- I really enjoyed my lasagne and in particular the Martini espresso! Highly recommended.

Pizza baked in wood-burning oven. Pasta cooked to perfection. Flavourful! Portion is reasonable, though not generous. The flavours and the ingredients more than made up for the portion size. Fantastico! Friendly and attentive service. Will certainly visit again.
