Friends have been going there for years,just for the lentil soup....I had to go! The lentil soup is hearty,with an Italian touch and excellent.The rest of the meal was most enjoyable,accompanied by several very reasonably priced wines

Recently started working at a business nearby and had family come visit so we decided to try out the Culinary Affair for dinner. The food was so delicious! Staff was incredibly friendly...I would absolutely recommend.

We stop in every once in awhile to get a good and quick meal. The food quality, service and prices are all great. One thing that I noted tonight is the black ceiling and dark walls, in its day it was stylish, today it could use a redo with some light color paints.

Popped in later on in the vening and had a great meal. The service is always quick and very polite. The food is consistently good whatever dish you order. I would highly recommend this restaurant as a casual place to eat and great value

The restaurant is very small, and the separated dining rooms make it feel even more private and personalized. It looks and feels like a high-class restaurant without the high-class price. The wait staff was very nice and helpful, while not being too intrusive. I really wish there was more variety to the menu, having what seems like traditional italian food... More

A great place to go with the family. Quality ingredients, nicely prepared, many great choices. The lentil soup and salads are great. Pizza and pasta are always a big hit with the family.

Can't miss here. Food and service are always great. This has always been a solid choice for a night out. The best thing is you always know you will not be dissapointed. Great family run business.
