This was our second visit to this restaurant in the last couple of years and each time even with no reservation, they were able to accommodate us. It's our chance to practice our poor French and the staff always seems to understand! Food is excellent and we weren't rushed through our meal. Beautiful view of the lake - a relaxing... More

They have great service, good Italian food & an amazing setting. The daily catch (doré) was delicious and the veal was cooked to perfection. For dessert, the tiramisu and the creme caramel were amazing. I would certainly go back with my family.

The food was delicious, I enjoyed a pasta dish and my wife a steak. The service very good, we never felt rushed and enjoyed the wonderful ambiance and sunset from the terrasse. The only drawback to this delightful restaurant is perhaps the price. Two table d'hôtes orders + a coffee ran us a tab over $100 after tip. So while... More

Best service I have ever received in my life. We were welcomed as family, the place is a very cosy chalet establishment. the food portions were amazing and the service was incredible. Everything is home made Italian food, where the owners are the chefs. We order from the table d'hôte, and received appetizers, entrées, main meal, desserts, tea/coffee and even... More

Excellent Italian food and great service. The couples would love it! The owners are very caring. The interior is very warming and the view to the Round Lac is extraordinary. I consider this for one of the top spots in Ste-Adèle!

Too expensive for the quality of the food. Excellent martini. Tomato sauce lacked flavor. The lamb braised in rosemary and orange tasted of neither but not bad nonetheless. The eggplant appetizer was very good as was the chocolate moose cake. The apple tart did not taste like apples. We had two waitresses who were both nice. It wasn't that busy... More

I am not crazy about Italian cuisine, but this restaurant is a wonderful exception in my list. Family running, very thoughtful service, great kitchen, perfect food. The tiramisu was simply phenomenal, i should admit. Will go back again when in town.

We were here for a dinner on January 1 2016. This was one of the few restaurants open on the New Year's day. What a great experience! This place is a family restaurant and they will make you feel right at home. The owner Albina takes time to greet each guest and chat and create a welcoming atmosphere. The food... More
