I came back to this restaurant after three years and the food and service are still excellent. The spaghetti with pesto sauce is still great. The pepper steak was perfectly done. The wait staff were present when necessary and absent when not needed. They also knew their wines. We had a table of ten and we all received our meals... More

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Halifax. You are always treated with exceptional service and the food is amazing. The prices are very good when you consider the quality of service and food you get. They have a great wine selection and you are allowed to just sit and enjoy a pleasant non-rushed meal with a great atmosphere.... More

Our first night in Halifax and it was great, friendly, attentive attention from Graham who let us dine at our pace .Fabulous service and great food! Halibut was fantastic. Duck was prepared to perfection, leg and breast with cherry sauce, yum. Highly recommend.

Found this quiet retreat through a referral and thoroughly enjoyed it. Well appointed restaurant for adults who enjoy fine Italian cuisine accompanied by good wine and stimulating conversation at dinner.

The food never disappoints and the experience overall is five star. The menu is pricey, but well worth it. Great for a special occasion. The ambiance is perfect, and service is on point!

We've been doing a foodie tour of St John’s NFLD and Halifax with some really nice experiences but this was definitely the best. Nice ambiance and decor with attentive staff. The appetisers of contestants salad and eggplant San Daniele were very good to great and the mains of lamb and chicken were sublime. Their sauces are amazing. Nice reasonable wine... More

A great menu - true to Italian cuisine as we know it here in Toronto. The Servers knew their menu inside out. And seemed to be folks who had been there for... More

We had heard that the gnocchi was the best. And they sure are, and the menu states with house tomato sauce, you can have them three other ways. The excellent waiter, Kelly, was very attentive to make this night amazing. We had the Duck, the ravioli...every dish was superb. A must in Halifax.
