I had the worst experience today. Ordered a dish and did not like it at all, had one bite only. Paid full amount. Poor hospitality. No one followed up with me as I sat with the family and had no dinner. The dish was not well prepared by chef. I did not expect this from a restaurant like this. Seriously when you are with family and experience something like this it's not good. Greatly disappointed !

The server (I forgot her name, blonde shoulder length hair) was amazing, very attentive and even remembered/offered to alter my selection due to my lactose intolerance! Atmosphere was not what I expected but the modern contemporary design is decent. If the seats and tables were nicer, the place would be really stand out in my opinion. The food was amazing, I've been a cook at 5 star restaurants and I'm very picky when it comes to pasta and I have to say that the pasta (all 3 dishes that we ordered) were above and beyond my expectations, dare I say, the best I've ever had in this city, and I've been to practically every big (and various small) restaurants this city has to offer in the last 16 years here. Fantastic food and fantastic service, definitely coming back!!

This is my favorite restaurant in Calgary. I love the pastas and steak. This time we thought we would try something new, so we went with the specials. The octopus spaghetti needed sauce, and the sea bass needed seasoning. The sea bass had so many bones that it was difficult to eat. We will be back for sure, but next time we will stick to the regular menu items that have proven to us that we will love them.

Great food as always. My only complaint is it’s always loud. Would be good to get some soft furnishings to absorb the noise.

Just a suggestion: we indicated we were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. Perhaps a little cake or small dessert as courtesy would have been a nice gesture. The food was very good, the service by Bo was excellent, everything was very good.
