I came here twice and I have to say that the food was good, however a dining experience is more than just food.. The table service is a bit rushed and not very personal and they shove so many specials at you that you can't...More

Went to the restaurant late one Friday night for dinner and some nice wine. Food is absolutely amazing. Meatballs is a must. The Rigatoni Bolognese also is superb. Chardonnay was amazing and the Trebbiano closely matched it. Wonderful spot. A must if in Gastown.

I sat and watch them make the pasta. Very small place. I'm glad that i was there for lunch. The place was full with several people waiting. Some of the best pasta that I've ever had. It was worth the long walk from my hotel.

We shared an appetizer and 2 mains, along with wine. The total with tax was $85. The staff were attentive and the food packed with flavour. This is one of the best new restaurants in Vancouver.

There isn’t a single Italian thing about this place. We went here because of all the great reviews but i was so disappointed I don’t even know where to start... First of all, there is no AC in the place and only one ceiling fan.......More

The location is a bit out of the way, but well worth the trip. The menu confines itself to a few dishes with excellent food. Waitstaff were very good.

We really enjoyed our visit and wait was worth it as they don’t take reservations. Server suggested to ordered for few dishes and share . Everything that we ordered was very good but meatballs were exceptional. Very limited on the beverage selection, but other than...More

The restaurant is very small so be prepared for a wait. I find all of the pasta dishes that I have tried to be fresh and tasty.

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
