Our character shines through with a warm, inviting welcome at the door that is carried throughout the dining experience. Great care is taken to select only the freshest, most flavourful ingredient combinations for all our mouth-watering dishes like the Shrimp Angel Hair Pasta, Fried Calamari, Veal Parmigiana or any of our fresh, thin crust pizzas. We’re dedicated to meeting and then exceeding all expectations.

“Eaten here a couple of times and food needs work”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

The restaurant is a great setting and has a bit of a buzz. The Service is ok although there was nobody to greet us on entering which left us wandering around like lost sheep. The food is at the more stodgy end of Italian I found and it was over seasoned on both visits. The menu selection is more reflective of Italian american deep-fried techniques over anything really authentic and I found there was less than a third of the items I'd ever order and the same with my dining guests.
The food seems production line and a bit hit and miss. Wouldn't go out of my way to come back a third time unless the menu gets a revamp.

“The angel hair and meatballs is yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

When we arrived at the restaurant for our reservation I did let the hostess know our party was there to celebrate two special occasions. I was a bit disappointed that the information didn't prompt any reaction (i.e. a suggestion of a cake or anything).... but I guess that's not unusual.

Our server was great - there when we needed him and left us alone when we got caught up in conversations. One thing that was funny though was the "manager" seemed to call a little pow wow in the kitchen area where guests could see - that wasn't really good when we were actually in need of our waiter... and "company" meetings shouldn't be held where guests can see... right?

Dinner was great - we started with the Osso Bucco bites... they were not what I expected... in a good way.... they were tender and crispy and definitely worth a shot. I then had the Angel Hair and meatballs - the meatballs were packed with flavour and it was almost more than I could eat.... but not quite.

My friends finished with the canolli's and were mixed. They felt the shells were frozen but the cream inside was fresh. The flavours were non traditional but they did enjoy them.

Overall it was a nice night and a good meal with an excellent server.

“Ok but disappointed with atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Good meal and service but when we were there there was a birthday party for a young boy and parents and children were running around every where. Very difficult to enjoy a nice meal with that atmosphere.

“Dinner with friends & family”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

They brought the wrong soup for starters and the wrong type of steak from what was ordered. All the food had the same bland taste. We had 8 at our table and 7 were unable to finish their meal. TheTiramisu tasted like a Duncan Hines special. Sorry, but not impressed.

“Really an excellent for a chain italian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Really enjoyed the garlic pizza roll appetizers. They had a very nice variety of food and a nice selection of desserts. Had a nice selection of specialty beers that complimented the food very well.

The server staff was very attentive and were very eager to provide suggestions on the menu.
