The seating is "cozy" and don't look for any matching dishes or fancy décor. The star is the food and the service, both top notch. The mackerel special was creative and delicious, as were the veggies and the cheese plate for dessert. excellent pasta too....More

This restaurant participated in Toronto's "Giro d'Italia" representing Umbria. I made my reservation, and I looked forward to the dining experience. We arrived at the restaurant, admittedly 5-10 minutes late. The place was much smaller than I expected. Our table was jammed into a cramped...More

The meal was bland, we had gnocchi, pasta and a salad. The server boosted that they only use a few ingredient in each dish - maybe that accounts for the lack of excitement. The gnocchi tasted like unsalted mash potatoes. The server offered steak -...More

We are infrequent regulars here - the food is always amazing and the staff are naturally welcoming and happy - and - this leads to good things.

Went there for my birthday and had the Chef's Table. This is very special because it is only available to 2 people per night, and it is very interactive with the chefs and staff. The meal was heavy on cheese - it was in 4...More
