“Very good meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Toni makes you feel very welcome to the restaurant. All the food is good. Same for the soup. Good home-cooking type food. Very reasonable prices. Good value.

“canned tomatoes”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Very disappointing meal after all the hype on trip advisor. We ordered different veal with side pastas. The veal was mediocre and a little tough to chew in all cases. What's worse was the pastas. We had tried the penne arrabiata and the penne with tomato sauce. It was not homemade sauce, but something found in a can. The arrabiata was the exact same only with a bit of pepper added to it. Something I could have found in the grocery store instead of an "authentic" italian restaurant.

Moreover, a fire alarm was going the entire time we were eating and Toni did apologize but did not offer to cover our meal or simply a complimentary dessert. It was truly disappointing to come out and eat a meal I could have prepared from a jar of Prego and sit the length of a meal with an ear-shattering noise.

We won't be back. I do not recommend this restaurant.

“Warm hospitality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is a family run business and the waitress/owner Toni provided warm, friendly service and truly appreciated that we chose the restaurant. The food and pricing were excellent. I had veal parmigiana with penne pasta. We also ordered the homemade tiramisu that was authentic and delicious. We will return to this restaurant when visiting Windsor, Canada.

“Excellent staff and food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

The atmosphere was very welcoming and cozy. Our waitress, and owner, Toni was very friendly, and welcoming!! The food was well prepared, and delicious...they even made me Chicken Parmagiana, even though it wasn't on the menu!! Toni also told us the history of Windsor's "Via Italia", which was enlightening and interesting. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!!
