This place is real good. I have never given 5 stars to an Italian restaurant because I have some bias. Anyway, the service is great, wine selection is very good, and the food is fresh, all from scratch, old school homemade recipes from the owner. They also do to go and have a neat little grocery/deli area. Oh, I almost... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Vancouver. Great, comfortable atmosphere, friendly servers and delicious food. I usually come here with one or two or three friends and usually end up in a celebratory mood. Have had many great meals and conversations here. Totally recommend.

Nice menu selections. On a very cold day wanted a pasta dish. Enjoyed the lasagna of the day. Perfectly balanced, seasoned, and hearty. Coffee freshly brewed. Good service by wait staff who filled my small order of deli items in time to get one integrated bill.

We were looking for a place for dinner and stumbled on this restaurant. Crowded but they found a table. It was about 630 pm and only one other table remained. We got the white bean minestrone, beet salad, Caesar salad, and smoked mushroom ravioli. All wonderful especially the latter. Service was excellent, attentive, and patient with our inquiries. Wine available... More

I don't know who's creating the fabulous dishes, but along with their superb wine selection you can't go wrong. Staff really knows how to pair - just give them an idea of what you like and they'll never fail you. We'll be coming back again. Romantic too.

Good Italian at reasonable prices on Main Street. Also, a nice area to stroll before/after dinner...

We've been here on each visit with family and it never disappoints! Since we were busy playing "catch up" with family, our waitress had to return a few times to take our orders and she was the epitome of patience and understanding - staff of this caliber is scarcely encountered these days and she was a true gem! The antipasto... More

My son and I have been coming here for the past 5 years. Even though we live next to foodie central, Portland, we still come here. 1 mile from our house and still the best Italian food in the area and beyond. Amazing wine selection, fresh food, great flavors, and the most amazing staff. We feel like family here and... More

A bunch of chicks sittin' 'round talking. This place seems appeals to the female crowd who like to drag out their reluctant companions...and their credit cards to a place that no self-respecting Brooklyn-ite would be caught dead in. Salads with latin names, pasta with lot's of "i's" and "t's"...of course, all available with chicken at a modest premium. All this,... More

Okay, I was not sure of this place. When you walk in, the place is full of people and a little loud. Then you are seated in middle of a deli. The deli counter is behind you, with a display of boxed pastas, separating the deli and the cafe. We went for lunch, so I was expecting just a menu... More
