I've had some great dinners here and some not-so-great. The food overall is fine, the service is OK. Depending on their mood on the day, they allow BYO bottle wine. Yes, I've experienced taking our own wine, and then the next time, being told it wasn't allowable. Go figure.

Until it was sold a few years ago, it was my favourite place to eat. The new owners tend to put greed above customer service.

We are locals and frequent this restraunt often. If you are a foodie (food lover) then you will appreciate Ceccada's consideration and matching of flavors in their dishes. We have or favorites the "pork belly to die for" and the hot pot, which we were told is a recipe of the owner's. We often find it difficult to try new things, as we crave these dishes and combination of flavors. The crepe Suzette is also drool worthy. I know some complained about prices but the Cooly Pub serves food at the same costs and generic food-chain Hogs Breath will set you back a similar price for a steak. The prices are in line with other restraraunts in the area and the servings are generous and they have always been consistent.

All 4 dishes we chose really nice. Bigger than average servings and well presented. Service patchy with rough part in the middle, perhaps new staff or an off night. Overall fine and would recommend.

Great meal in great location. Pork Belly was sensational and a must try. Service needs some polish and they could have made more money off us if the serviced our table better. Would have had more drinks and maybe dessert but they just didn't offer them to us. Ended up having to chase the bill to get out.

Food was that good we went back for breakfast the next day. It was quieter in the morning and the service was better and more relaxed.

But trust me on the Pork Belly..........
