“Just average”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Booked a table online, which was just as well because it was pretty packed when we arrived due to a ball game at the nearby stadium. We each ordered a pasta dish - my wife had the Carbonara and I had salmon and pasta. Both were swimming in the sauce but the food was tasty.

Nothing, though, about the service or the food absolutely "wowed" us. It was just average.

“Popular spot in downtown Vancouver”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Wow, this place was so crowded on a Monday evening that we faced a 45 minute wait for dinner. We chose not to wait, but, we came back the next morning and enjoyed a great breakfast with excellent service. The coffee is outstanding. Give it a try.

“Pleasant surprise for dinner”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

As a guest in the adjoining hotel I had breakfast here a few times - good but pretty standard and unremarkable. However dinner was a different story - had an amazing gnocchi with chicken - incredible depth and complexity of flavours. Much better than a renowned Italian restaurant in the area I also tried on this trip.

“Delicious food, great service”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We were happily surprised to discover this restaurant next door to our hotel (Hampton Inn) which proved to be a great find. Despite it being a busy night, we were seated quickly and found the wait staff efficient, pleasant, and attentive all evening. My wife and I shared the Caprese Salad and the Lentil Soup as starters, and the Caesar Salad and Conchiglioni Frutti Di Mare. All were very well prepared, nicely presented, and done in interesting ways that made them distinctive from an ordinary Italian dinner. We enjoyed our dinners so much that we couldn't resist trying a dessert, the cheesecake, and were again not disappointed. Altogether a very nice place, and well-priced too.
