This restaurant was my "go to" place in Kanata/Stittsville for more upscale food with a decent wine list. It's a real loss that both the Stittsville and Elgin locations closed in early January 2017.

We went to dinner with a party of 10 on a weeknight, ordering several of the pasta dishes an order of fish, and several appetizers. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. The service was friendly and efficient and the ambiance quite nice. We ended up...More

We went as a group of 10 and sampled several of the starters and several of the pasta mains. Overall the quality was very good. I particularly found my carbonara pasta to be excellent and with a very generous amount of panchetta. While if quite...More

Went to this restaurant twice in a week - it was a perfect place for me. Enjoyed the Italian BLT with the Kale Caesar Salad. Will definitely go back again. Would also like to try it for dinner as the menu is quite different and...More

Outside there are large hanging baskets of flowers and several boxes of fresh herbs. Inside the decor has a suble italian flavour and quiet music. The food is excellent and the service is as well. The appetizer - three soft cheeses, slices of apple, candied...More

I wanted to love this place because it is close to where I live plus I do enjoy Italian food. I wanted to see something traditional on the menu like penne arrabiata or primavera. Nothing remotely resembling these dishes. I was ready to leave when...More
