“Overrated”
Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

Thought it would be a great hole-in-the-wall place from the reviews on tripadvisor. But it wasn't. Only one of the dishes we ordered was a bit better than okay -- the French onion soup. My wife described her salad as "watery" and "horrible." Mine was simply undistinguished. Her steamed mussels were overcooked. My so-called steam clams were just vongole sauce. Nice servers. $5 corkage fee per person. No plans to return.

“Our New Favorite!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and were admittedly a little bit hesitant when we drove up. But remembering someone else's comments about the exterior, we went in and were thoroughly impressed. The staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. The food was delicious and the portions were plentiful. We travel to Edmonton frequently and will definitely find reasons to visit this restaurant again.

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Again the food was absolutely superb. For the outside outlooks very hohum, but come on in.this is probably among the best kept secrets around. The menu isn't extensive, buttherecertainly is something for everyone. And the service was absolutely superb

“Unexpected Experience”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

From the outside this appears little more than a run of the mill restaurant with a pub beside-expecting a noisy restaurant we reluctantly ventured in-only to be transported to a Italian villa complete with tromp lei painting on the walls. A fireplace completed the relaxing atmosphere and the staff were totally attentive to each customer. We were delighted with the portions and the meal was so wonderful. We had pizza which was covered in abundant toppings and full of flavor. I would definately be tempted to try their other dishes or the specials of the evening. Would be suitable for a family dinner or a quiet retreat for a date night. The service far outweighed our initial caution and prices are far more reasonable than some of the other more highly sought after Italian in the city. If you are looking for outstanding food matched with unparelled service look no further. If you want high prices and rushed staff go elsewhere. Each customer is accomadated here and service is their top priority.

“Great pizza”
Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

This is one of those places you can go and have a great meal along with enough time to enjoy it. Good food, good service and good prices make for a place you can go time and time again and still enjoy.
