This place is a gem. Perfectly al dente pasta with just the right seasoning and perfect serving temperature. Prompt, attentive, friendly service. Pleasant, boutique sized, patio.

My husband and I had an amazing meal at the Downtown Bistro in Burlington on Friday night. We each ordered the pasta to support Chef/Owner Mike's Walk for Hamilton General. Both Pasta dishes were awesome.

It is a cosy bistro with a small but excellent luncheon menu. The white wine sangria was delightful as were our salad, sandwiches and dessert... Tori was our friendly, helpful server. We will be back!

Lovely lunch for two on a sunny patio. One of us had the frittatta special (delicious with roasted tomatoes from the restaurant garden ) , the other person had the smoked salmon crepe (complete with large pieces of fresh mushroom). Thoroughly enjoyable.
