We visit a few times a year for great food and wine. I started with the Octopus and had the beef short rib for my main. Both well prepared and delicious. The wines are fairly affordable starting around $45 with a good selection at $55. We will return.

my boyfriend brought me here for valentines day this year and we were both impressed. It is a small restaurant but the food is great and the servers are all so kind. He got the steak and I got the fish and we were both very happy with our meals!

Many years ago I had eaten here a few times and was not too impressed so I stopped going . Then a year ago a friend wanted to take me here for my birthday. Since she was treating, of course I had to say yes to this restaurant. What a pleasant surprise it was. The food was very good. Since... More

Very fresh food, great octopus, great pasta....this place never disappoints. The food selection and quality of food is always good and I always walk away wondering why I don't come here more often (probably because it's too close to home). It's not a hipster duffice kind of place- they are very relaxed and authentic. If your looking for a good... More

I was a little surprised when a friend referred me to this restaurant. Bathurst north of Wilson? Not the restaurant hub of the city. Anyway, appearances can be deceiving. We had an 8 PM reservation on Saturday. The place was hopping. There was plenty of free parking (after all, as I say, a stripmall), not an insignificant detail for me.... More

Customer service is great. Staff is very knowledgeable about their food and wines. Grilled calamari was great, however the spinach underneath was drenched in butter. Spaghetti carbonara had to be sent back as it was lukewarm. Pancetta was overcooked and hard (I actually thought I cracked my tooth). I would not recommend this dish at all. Caramel apple cheesecake desert... More

Three of us had pizza. It was dry and tasteless I had a pasta which was mediocre. They have a varied menu. Did we just order badly?. I expect the standard to be uniform.

Although, it was a Tuesday night, it was packed. Service was very slow and when we politely asked where are Mains were, we had waited at least 40 minutes after appetizers, the server was extremely rude with the comment "Complaining about it won't make it arrive any sooner". I understand it was busy but there is never an excuse for... More

Was at a dinner with four people for an unexpected outing. The place was packed - reservations were a bit behind. Our waitress was a pleasure. A lovely woman who engaged in discussion, gave suggestions etc. I had the branzino and wild rice and veggies. It was cooked perfectly. My caesar salad was fresh and crunchy. O

Our family had a reunion over dinner in one of the private rooms upstairs. There were over twenty adults and everyone had a great time. We could hear each other easily when we talked. The service was outstanding and they accommodated our food sensitivities with grace. The warmed olive appetizer featured the best tasting olives we’ve had since a wine... More
