What a great meal. The pasta is homemade, very light. The crescent rolls were delicious. The owners are very friendly and take pride in their restaurant. I would highly recommend it to everyone. It is also very reasonable, $25 gets you a delicious meal.

We visited on a weekend evening and where not very happy with the whole experience. The atmosphere was neat and inviting at first, but hard rock music is not really helping in creating a pleasant environment (in fact, I found it really disturbing). Fake flowers on tables should go and be replaced with real candles. The waitress did not talk or recommend about the daily special, and was not very personable overall. We always try to have a healthy dish as starter, but there were only two soup choices (Minestrone and Seafood Chowder) and a Caesar Salad to choose from. No mixed greens or vegetable antipasti... The pasta dishes were very small and not big enough to be called 'satisfying'. They were also pretty boring. We were still hungry and had to go for dessert. Sweets are okay. The bill was not little, $56 for two pasta dishes, two desserts and two soft drinks is quite a bit. I see no reason to return.

This new place is awesome - run by a husband and wife team - he cooks, she serves - and it`s fresh homemade pasta with homemade everything - what they can`t make on site they buy locally. Portions may be considered small by some but every bite is so delicious....

This is a new 32 seat restaurant just outside the usual tourist area of downtown Charlottetown but still within easy walking distance of the cruise ship terminal. Mostly Italian cuisine but there are other choices on the menu. There were four of us and we each ordered a different entree. All four have been raving about this place ever since. All ingredients are local, pasta is made in house as is the ice cream and these people even make their own cheeses! Service is friendly but not fast, because they don't use pre-prepared items and microwave them; everything is fresh and made from scratch. But from the (hot) bread rolls through the entrees and desserts the food was excellent and the price was right. Very highly recommended.
