“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed April 15, 2012 via mobile

We visited this restaurant 4 times during our 2 week stay in Vancouver. The food was delicious, service was great, and the kids were well accommodated for. I've tried several different dishes, and all were prepared to a high standard. The Caprese salad, the pizzas, the spaghetti bolognese were all fantastic.

We were there early evening, but it was still a good alance between families, couples and random groups of people. Easy parking outside every time we turned up.

I learnt on our last visit that they also do delivery!

Next time I am in ancouver I will be sure to drop by.

“Reservation recommended if dining in”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

Ambiance: Frequented by lots of families and large groups so can get noisy on busier nights (ie. weekends or holidays). On that note, recommend always calling ahead (even 20min) to put your name down on their reservations to avoid waiting. Entry area can get cramped.

Food: Stick to Italian staples like their pizza (Minerva's Special) or Baked Lasagna. Those items are good value for price and are tasty! Entrees can be expensive and wine list is ok, nothing spectacular.

Service: 50/50; a couple waitresses have been there longer and are excellent but others...

There's a draft if you sit by the windows, not nice when it's cold outside!

“Average Food for a Pricey Resto”
Reviewed July 22, 2011

The Lamb Shank was very big but did not taste good. Very Dry. Not that worth for a pricey resto. Server put on a stern look from the time we sat down to the time we left even when we tried to be friendly to her. They should hire friendlier servers.
