It was fairly busy for a Sunday evening, but we had no trouble getting seated for 4 quickly. Food came quickly and was enjoyable. Good portion sizes, fair price. Would go back

Went here with another couple during the May long weekend. We were fortunate to get a spot on the patio, as someone had just vacated prior to our arrival. The blackened salmon was absolutely delicious...one of the best I've ever had. Nice flavour to it without it being too spicy. Others in the group had the Molisano Chicken, Chicken Parmigiana,...

My entire family enjoyed our dinner very much. 3 different meals and all 3 of us enjoyed and that in itself is unusual for my family. Plus the young lady who served us was very pleasant. Id go again.

A real wood oven to cook great pizza. Just go for the basic Margarita for authentic taste. Nice service and cocktail. Pasta looked good too and was appreciated by others in the party. We were a large group of 11, with some kids, so high maintenance. We had a great time.

Based on the reviews, we were a little disappointed. We had an early dinner here. Service was excellent. Food (pasta and pizza) was ok but nothing special.

Ottawa has great restaurants and this is one of them. Great service- we noted that the servers were very attentive, and not just our waiter. Two people in the party had the wood oven pizza- loved it. Also ordered the lasagna and the cannelloni and both were delicious. Also tried the summer cocktail called the Moscow Mule- ginger beer and... More

The pizza tastes homemade and the atmosphere is good.a steakhouse but with Italian dishes.It had the feel of My only complaint that it took 4 times of asking for water before it came - maybe there were short staffed that night?

I went here with my sister on Monday and it was quite delicious, and the price for an appetizer and two main courses was pretty decent. However, there was just too much of it! I love to eat but I was a little surprised at the portion sizes. Again, good bang for your buck I guess? The service was good,... More
