Great food with great value. Their branch at Scotia Square has the nicest people working there. I feel lucky to have their quality food at such price near my work.

Hidden away in the pedway level, going from the Delta Barrington over to Scotia Square, is a little gem. It's the 'little sister' to the Young Street Market and it is every bit as good. In particular, their daily homemade soups are always sooo good,...More

Lunched here today and we were very disappointed....Like all Italian market style places, you stand in too long lineups to purchase a meal off a confusing array of selections on menu boards or by peering into a glass cooler...The $8 portion of chicken was small...More

If you are looking for a place in Halifax that sells the Italian beverage "Brio" look no further. This is not found easily in the city and is a nice reminder of visits to Italy. Grab a sandwich while you are here - either to...More

I visited the restaurant with my wife and her sister. The restaurant is very well decorated. Wonderful ambiance! The staff is great and all the food amazing. Everything is baked fresh in store from scratch. I highly recommend this place.
