Great atmosphere and great service. Unfortunately they were not able to execute traditional Italian dishes such as bolognese sauce and carbonara. The bolognese sauce tasted like canned pasta sauce and the eggs in the carbonara were overcooked. There were clumps of egg whites and cooked egg yolks in the pasta, which was also overcooked. I used to frequent this restaurant (Old Strathcona location) when I lived Edmonton in the late 90s, but when I returned recently for a meal I was disappointed. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

This gorgeous location gives a realistic Italian feel. The menu is good. The wine selections are good. The three of us all ordered a varies of dishes; veal, baked pasta, and regular pasta plus appys. All the dishes were, good. Not brilliant, not unique in flavours, just good. But the service we got, WOW. From entrance to wine delivery, food delivery to exit, was five star. That is a team effort. Thanks for that because it made our evening special.

We went on a busy Sat. night. This place had a manager in charge who was right on top of things plus they had enough staff to cover the restaurant. The staff as well worked together not just sticking their tables when food was ready to bring out.

The food as always was great- pasta cooked just right.

The only thing is they have put some booths in the middle of the room and noise comes from both dining areas plus the kitchen. Plus the table to the booth is too high for the seat so it is hard to visit or eat comfortably. It is really too bad and next time I would make sure to ask for a regular table or some of the booths on the side.

We stopped by this busy restaurant on a warm summer evening. It was crowded with everything running smoothly and our wait was not very long. The noise level was a pleasant hum that one would expect. Our waiter was efficient and very friendly. We had a wide range of items to choose from the menu and our orders were brought to the table promptly. The atmosphere was unique and the whole experience was pleasant. We will definitely return.
