Usually we go here just when grandparents are coming up to treat us to dinner. But kids eat free except on weekends, so that makes the overall bill not too high at all. Lots of variety with popular Italian/Canadian foods. A bit too greasy and...More

Dirty cutlery, very very noisy, seemed like a CD playing to make it sound busy, Parking lot is a zoo, park on the street if available. Servers were training each other, but the trainer had no brains either.

Used to eat here when they first opened years ago and it was ok. The quality, service, atmosphere has steadily gone downhill. The cost is too high for the quality, either make better food or lower the cost for the current menu.

I enjoyed their pasta, caesar salad and of course their fireside baked pizza of my choice. Their staff is friendly and very attentive.

I like the food, it taste good. Not the best taste ever but it is good and compared to other Italian restaurants reasonable prices. I like the Italian wedding soup, the bread and butter they serve and they green and Cesar salad.

when will they close down this chain? I have gone several times only due to attending a function for someone else otherwise I would NEVER eat here of my own accord. The wait staff (waterloo King St) aren't very good either.
