We had dinner here, 4 of us, Restaurant has a nice feel, clean, well set up. Staff was friendly and attentive, knew the menu well. Food was good, though quiet pricey for the serving size. Nice to having fresh pasta here - you can taste...the difference. Chef stopped by our table after the meal to see if we liked the food -- nice touch!More

The quality of the ingredients, the presentation, the service and the taste. We enjoyed so much we went twice during our five night stay.

Overpriced food that is not up to par in quality. I have no problem paying large amounts of money for good food, but their italian sauce seems comes from a can. Meatballs do not seem to be fresh either.

Following a friend’s recommendation, we set our sights on visiting this restaurant. Due to the pandemic, this took a bit longer than we expected. The waiting ended last week. The meal exceeded our expectations. The food was tops and service second to none. I highly...recommend and I plan to visit again later this year.More

Nice, fine dining restaurant. The food was fresh and seasoned perfectly. Wide variety of wine and cocktails, great place to for a date night or with friends and family!

Certainly one of the top few high end restaurants in Saint John. Well thought out menu, great presentation and quality, overall excellent food. Service was also excellent - very friendly and attentive staff. Be sure to book well in advance as this location is frequently...booked full. Atmosphere was also great. My only criticism would be the pricing - I would expect to pay these prices at a high end / big city restaurant, and I found the service and food just not quite at the standard of a similarly priced big city experience. But again, we had great food, great experience, and great service, just slightly over priced! Would recommend it if you're looking for a nice dining experience in Saint John!More

We went as a family to this wonderful Italian restaurant. The decor was modern and clean, the service was attentive and the meal was great. I had the osso buco and it was possibly the best osso buco I have ever had. We will be...back here for sure.More

This place has a deserved reputation. I personally found the bruschetta tomato mix a little bland, but the fry-toasted focciata bread was excellent. Again, likely my poor menu choice or that it has to be eaten really hot from the oven (we had a take-out)...but the mushroom pizza was very heavy going; albeit it tasted delicious. There’s a lot of it, so one pizza for two people would be ideal.More

The food was delicious and authentic while the service was great as well. We had a reservation so no issues with waiting for our table. Great selection of wine and beers. Tandi and this place are the go to places in Saint John.

On a busy night the restaurant can be very lively. Our music is not loud. We have won "MOST ROMANTIC " on Open Table three years in a row. I hope this helps.
