Good find! My sister and I were vacationing along the lakeshore in Toronto, and this place was right down the road. Great meal! A little pricey, but great tasting food! Service was a little slower than we'd prefer, but we really couldn't complain!

Restaurant looks shabby and was quite dirty when we were there... energy low by owners, food is less than a year ago. It's like they gave up. Sad. No return for us.. not recommended to others.More

It's a decent place but tends to be very noisy. Our waiter worked very hard but they did not have enough staff so service was SLOW! My pasta dish was very good but her's as tasteless.More
