We went here on Good Friday for dinner. The restaurant wasn't extremely busy, but service was poor. The waitress took our order in such a rushed manner - we ordered the polo funghi (chicken risotto in cream sauce) and veal copperwood (veal medallions wrapped in...More

We have been to Copperwood many times over the past few years as it is close to where we stay. The food & service are consistently good but on this occasion they let us down by having to wait at least half an hour for...More

I often order 4 cheese gnocchi at Italian restaurants and this is my new favourite! the gnocchi was so delicate and tender and the sauce matched beautifully; not too rich. We finished by sharing a creme brulee and that also did not disappoint, it was...More

Waitstaff were lovely. Food was average to a little disappointing. Wine was terrible. There are so many options we regretted this choice.

For a good, reliable meal, at the end of a movie or a day of culture in Carlton, this is a great option. I enjoyed a risotto, and authentic pizzas were consumed by others in the group. Very pleasing experience.

We could not have been more impressed with this restaurant. The atmosphere was lovely and the service was impeccable - so warm and friendly - while being professional. We enjoyed all our drinks (some beautiful selections of wine) and the meals were delicious too. The...More

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighborhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
