In a downtown core that seems to have precious few restaurants offering innovative cuisine, interesting flavours and stylish surroundings, Town is a standout choice. Service is warm and welcoming, the room is simple and contemporary (almost spa-like) and the food offers fantastic flavours and choices....More

We had dinner there, the atmosphere was very nice, the food is excellent and so does the service! Not an ordinary Italian one, I would say that is more a Mediterranean one. The potatoes with pecorino was very good and so does the cornish hen!

Skip it then. The restaurant is amazing but if you have a million restrictions I’d go elsewhere. It’s my favorite restaurant

you should contact the restaurant directly for this information but it is a small location. I don't even think there's enough room for 70 people in the whole restaurant.
