“Just fine if you need a nosh and wine”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Perfect is you just need a little bite. Pizza, glass of wine, beer, salad. Given the location, it always hits the spot.

“Restaurant seems unable to handle groups”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

The restaurant was recommended by the hotel (although not the first choice), and we had booked one day in advance. We were a large group of 30 people, and were seated downstairs. The room looked shabby and frankly not very clean.

Service was terribly slow, and the last servings arrived approx. 1 hour after the first people got their food. This meant that we weren't eating together. Some people didn't get the pasta or salad that was supposed to accompany their meal, and therefore their food had to be reheated when the pata arrived 30 minutes late. Some people didn't get the beverages they had ordered. Remember i was thinking that this place needed a visit by Gordon Ramsey to teach them how to run a restaurant.
Gratuity of 18-20 percent was included on the bill, which was unbelieveable considering the slow service.
Cannot recommend this place, at least not for groups.

“Good spot for a good meal!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Had a fun Friday night Italian meal here. Patrons all friendly, food very good and reasonably priced. Even took a picture of the hilarious sign posted on Tony's door near the washrooms!

“Very Good”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Service was great. Friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that I sat with an empty glass for a while.

Food was lovely and plentiful! Biggest meatballs I've ever seen!

I would go back!
