I decided to stop in for a light lunch, whilst walking through Gastown and was very glad that I did. It was pretty busy, but I was seated immediately, at a table by the window, where I could watch the people outside strolling by. There was a good selection for lunch options - soups, salads and starters. Lots of other patrons were going for a bigger meal and again, there was lots of choice. My soup and salad were delicious and just the size I needed, but watching the other meals being served, you could have lots more to fill you up, if you wanted. Everything that I saw looked delicious and the staff was friendly and attentive. I'll be back there again, soon.

We had a table by the window where we could observe the pedestrian traffic and the steam clock. The menu offered many choices. I had bruschetta (to share)' a fabulous green salad with candied pecans and light balsamic dressing, and clam pasta. Each and every thing was perfectly prepared and served. My husband had the same salad and pasta with Italian sausage. His was outstand-
Ing also. The wine list was varied and reasonably priced. Service was impeccable.

Never been disappointed here. And according to neighbouring tables, only good comments heard.
1 major issue, don't even look at Trip Advisor's menu prices! Everything way up. Veal stated as $18 now $23 and short ribs @ $20 now $26. The wife started with soup of the day & I had seafood chowder, both very good. Wife's veal excellent & my short ribs very good. Mashed potatoes - not very good. Grilled veggies very nicely done.Nice portions & no room for dessert.
Outdoor seating Summer only, too cool now. Excellent Gastown location for tourists. Across from Steam Clock
