My family and I had dinner here last night and it was great! I tried the spaghetti and meatballs and they were some of the best meatballs around. My son ordered them over tater tots. Very filling and delicious! The restaurant was noisy and crowded by 5:30 on a Saturday night, but it was kid-friendly and the service was still very good, despite the crowd. The restaurant literally opens up to the street side, so we had plenty of fresh air and got to do lots of people watching. I would recommend this restaurant for families who don't want a lot of fuss, but do want a great meal with their kids.

Wonderful. Can accommodate a vegan. Great food at reasonable price. Meatballs have never been so great. Many craft beers, poutine (sp?) was excellent.

Visited on a Friday night at 5 PM and was able to get a table without any issue. The bar was crowded and the noise level was a bit high but that isn't uncommon for places with open bars and restaurant space. Our server was Rick W and he was very knowledgeable about beer choices and had good recommendations about food choices. They have lots of beers on tap with a good selection of different types (ale, porter, ipa, etc.) so it isn't hard to find something good. We started with a Rocket (arugula) salad and it was plenty big enough to share. We both had the two meatball panini with the arribiatta sauce. The arribiatta is spicy and we both loved the heat and the flavor. My wife had the spicy pork meatballs and I had the chicken meatballs and we each enjoyed them. Three beers (it was happy hour), salad and two panini's later and we paid less than $38. Definitely would recommend this place and will be back again soon.

We popped in for a late (2:00 pm) lunch on a Saturday.....promptly seated but then waited 15 minutes to have our drink and food orders taken. Waiter seemed very unsure of himself, and mumbled something about some staff confusion over 'who' was supposed to be waiting on our table - note to management, do not let patrons sit 15 minutes before ordering, as we were in full view of the front station send someone over and sort it out later who's table it is.

While a 'Vegetarian Meatball' may sound like an oxymoron, these were delicious with the spinach almond pesto sauce. Italian wedding soup very flavorful, were surprised by the chicken in it but it was a good addition. The Escarole and Beans were very tasty, a little heavy on the white beans and the escarole should've been cut into manageable sections, but downed it regardless. Good wine and craft beer listing.

With the brick walls and high ceilings this may be a very loud establishment when crowded, a plus is there are only 2 television sets and they are located in the bar area so you don't have to compete with them while talking.

We think once the serving zones get straightened out, and the servers get a little more training, this place will be on many 'must eat here' lists.
