All the good reviews that I have read about this property are true. The friendliness of the staff seems genuine. I have never seen such good customer service.

A great Italian meal.

My family and I have driven by this restaurant daily since it opened. The parking lot is full everytime we drive by and now we know why. The ambience is great and the food is even better. We had an antipasto platter for two (there were four of us) and the Caprese salad...the bocconcini were perfect. My daughters had the pasta with cream sauce, I had the rigatoni with sausage, eggplant in red sauce and my husband had the lamb. The food was fresh and well presented. Now the dessert...millefolgie with lemon and caramel drizzle. It was delicious. The service was great. Just enough attention to get what you need and to feel taken care of and enough quiet time to enjoy a family dinner. I would totally recommend this restaurant if you want a great Italian meal.

Outstanding food and terrific service. We were allowed to enjoy our time and our delicious food without ever feeling rushed. In fact we will go back with this friend group again for our next lunch in the fall.

Very authentically European/Italian, we had a very enjoyable meal and will be returning, with friends, this time, for more! Grilled octopus, no sauce, simply made with just the right herbs/spices/lemon juice, is our favourite Mediterranean meal....perhaps it could be added to the menu? Easy to get to and plenty of parking. Bravo!

The pasta special was good but overly salty (it tasted a lot better the next day) The appy was delicious and would order it again The halibut special for the evening wasn't that great and a LOT more expensive than anticipated. Didn't appreciate them not sharing the cost of the special in advance. Didn't appreciate the surprise when we got the bill.

My family had a nice dinner here on a Sunday evening in July 2018. It was a very pleasant experience. The atmosphere was calm and cozy. The waiters acted just like the best ones in Italy, no scribbling notes, all by memory, and perfectly courteous and jovial. The menu was easy to look at, the food was also tasty and fresh. If not for the road construction right in front of the restaurant I would think this place would be packed. I’m glad we all enjoyed our first visit. Definitely we will come again. This restaurant is a hidden gem of Vancouver!

Last time I was in Italy 15 years ago. It's an amazing country, culture, unique people. Yesterday's visit to your restaurant reminded me everything what I still love about Italy: mozzarella cheese, lasagna, seafood salad, lemon ice cream, famous expresso coffee. All excellent high en quality. Thank you!!! Good service, nice people around. We all had a charming evening there.

This is about as far across town as we will travel for a meal. We come here 2 or 3 times a year and it’s always awesome! Great food, reasonable prices and good service. Highly recommend it for lunch or dinner.

We were there at a slow time so hard to judge the atmosphere / ambiance. But the service was good and friendly, and the food was delicious. Really enjoyed this place when we stopped in for pre-marathon carbo loading. Great place 👍🏻
