Outdoor seating. Try the fire roasted artichoke. Amazing. I had the rigatoni with fresh tomatoes. Excellent. Hubs had a Caesar salad and thin crust pizza. Both were very high quality. But the highlight was our server Milan. He was so nice to two older people...and funny. Plus Hubs left the credit card. Milan remembered we were a staying at the nearby Marriott Hotel. He ran the block and a half and gave the card back to us when we were still in the lobby. Prince of a guy.More

Gluten free pizza! Always a plus as an offering. But overall, I was a bit disappointed. The atmosphere is a bit industrial-feeling. It's on a corner downtown, all business buildings, no real vibe. The service was just ok -- on the slow side, and no...recommendations or chatter from the waiter. The music, however, was excellent; and a treat to hear some nice jazz, not too noisy for conversation even sitting close to the stage. All-in-all, it was.....fine. :)More

We had a very enjoyable meal with good service. The menu was extensive and the wine list adequate. Good casual dining with an Italian flavour.

They were fantastic in working with our large group of 16. Food and service were fantastic! You cant go wrong with any appetizers or dish. I had the fish special and it was fabulous!

The drinks and food were so-so. Don’t try the Happy Hour red wine selection, but what can you expect for $3.00?????

Nice service and tasty food! Good casual dining experience, Pasta and Pizza seem to be what most patrons go for. Worth a visit. Parking nearby.

The atmosphere and service are great. Some seating outside, and it seemed a popular happy hour spot on a Thursday week night. They had live Jazz and it became busy by 7:30 but still had some seating. The Cesar salad was fresh and tasty. I...had the cheese ravioli with walnuts and artichoke. It was fresh but not as flavorful as I had hoped. The sausage was good, not too spicy. The flavored polenta was a bit too infused with tomato for my taste. I will be back to try other dishes.More

Had dinner here in August this year. Staff were friendly and restaurant was clean and welcoming. We all had pasta, having had our full of pizzas on our road trip (!) and it was very delicious and well cooked. Worth a visit - not the...cheapest - but good food so worth it.More

They do have kids menu and they will size down anything you want. Ask for Mario (owners son) if you want something not on the menu he's happy to help
