“wouldn't go back”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

The only nice thing about this restaurant is the view. The food was terrible...it seemed to have been prepped in the early afternoon and re-heated. The wine selection isn't great and the waiter's recommendation was not good....very unknowable. As well, our waiter must have just come in from a cigarette when we arrived. His leftover cigarette odor was not very pleasant. All in all, we were disappointed and won't be returning.

“A Gem”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We tried this restaurant with a groupon and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff was warm and inviting, the food was very good. We had the appetizers, dinner and dessert - all was excellent. Well worth your time to visit. The view from the restaurant is spectacular - If you're visiting the White Rock area - take a moment to visit this restaurant - think you will be pleasantly surprised.

“Much better choices on the Whiterock strip”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Uninviting ambiance, stark dining area. Food was edible but nothing special. The calimari had no flavour other than batter, and the pasta dishes were pretty blah, I felt I could have easily made the same thing at home and Im not all that good in the kitchen. Our waitress was pleasant but service was average. The view of the pier was nice but almost every place on the beach strip has a good view. With so many options for dining in Whiterock this place will be quite low on my list of places to revisit.

“Blase Bolognese”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We bought a groupon for this restaurant and arranged an evening out with friends. We were seated close to the window and the view of the pier was lovely. Unfortunately that is the best I have to say. Three of us ordered the spaghetti bolognese, and one the lobster raviolli. The spaghetti was a very generous portion but was severely lacking in flavour and under seasoned. The amount of sauce to pasta was also lacking. We had a 1/2 litre of wine and salad appetizers. We would have loved a special coffee after dinner but the waitress never returned to our table. The service was poor. We had to request our bill twice and were never asked how our meal was. The restaurant was full and there was only one server and the manager (or owner) on duty. The restaurant was also very cold. We would be willing to give it another try after reading all the rave reviews...but our experience was poor.

“One of the best on the beach”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

If you like Italian - don't miss this great little spot. The staff is friendly and welcoming when they seat you for your evening. Reserve a window seat if you can!

I had the osso bucco and it was AMAZING! It was SO tender that it just fell off the bone. The veggies served with it were a perfect match!

The Chicken Parm was had by my friend. It was very enjoyable and a full meal!

If you're heading to the beach for a friendly or romantic dinner - this is a place not to miss. Check their website before you go - sometimes they offer a coupon!
