“Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

We all enjoyed our meals here. The pasta dishes were very flavourful and the veal excellent. We sat ouside so didn't see the dining room. The patio is very simple (a parking lot with old lawn furniture) ...but the food was fresh and tasty which brought everything back to basics, and it worked. Not cheap, but the value is there.

“A Great Little Italian Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

Our dinner was very good and nicely presented. The wine list is small but reasonable. The decor is not especially appealing, it was like being in someone's garage that had been finished. Our only complaint is that you could over hear the staff's personal conversations. While not in the dining room they stood just outside of it in the hallway talking. Did we really need to know about their plans for the up coming weekend or what courses one of them was going to take next semester? But in the end the food was very good as was the service.

“60/40 good/fair experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

I did not find the wait staff overly enthusiastic in recommending any particular dish. I thought that the difference in price for the homemade versus dried pasta dishes was a bit over the top. I did enjoy my meal of home made fettuccine with scallops
( four - perfectly done) and wild PEI mushrooms tasty, especially with the flavor of the freshly ground pepper. Although on first appearance it appeared to be quite small, I found that it was just the right amount. Dining solo, I was limited to the house wine....... Decor was typical of other Italian restaurants I have frequented........faded framed scenic pictures, however these were accompanied with small collections of articles displayed on the wall (what possibly was written in that packet of old letters ?). Thank heavens there was a table cloth with cloth napkin. Was it too much to expect a butter knife for the bread?.. also I suggest that an extra step could be taken with regard to the butter, rather than just a hard square lump freshly removed from the fride.

“Classic Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

We found this restaurant in a PEI Culinary Tour Guide and are so glad we decided to go there. Delicious, homemade pasta and much of the food on the menu is island-grown/raised. A little pricy, but totally worth every bite!

“Fabulous!”

Friendly and professional service. Quality of the food was just fabulous and originally prepared. Wonderful wine at a reasonable cost. A really fine dining experience and very good value for money.
