Great food, great ambiance. Service is slow due to type of service. Food was amazing! Loved the food market behind the cafe. Not cheap.

Food was fantastic and fresh. A real nice little spot for a quick, but enjoyable lunch that isn't fast food. Staff was friendly, and loved that you could buy the same foods to bring home and have prepared meals for several days!

We arrived for some food to do a picnic, but in the end decided to have lunch instead. It was good and reasonably priced.

We came in not expecting this! It's a grocery and a place to eat. You select your food and they get it ready for you... lots of choice! If you like italian food, this is a great place for lunch!

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.

There is a large array of Italian and European products available in the store, however many of them are shockingly overpriced. Many identical products (such as Italpasta, Delverde, San Peligrino soft drinks and water - to name just a few) can be found at the...More
