The tuna and the char were excellent! We miss the Bersano wine on the list....excellent value for money. We really enjoyed the repartee with our wonderful waiter/host!! Always a very special place for us with many happy family memories.

Very crowded and noisy ambience, but well organized tables and attentive service make up for most of this. If I had any hearing problems I wouldn't book here, but otherwise I'd go back. More expensive than most midprice lunch spots in the area, but the quality of food and service is there to justify the downtown Toronto prices. Don't talk confidential government or university business - your Assistant Deputy Minister/CEO may be at the next table.

loud at the lunch hour with voices and clatter. Good for those who like noise but hard to chat with a friend given the decibels in the background

The server seemed to forget about us a couple times during our lunch. It was a busy lunch hour so I can understand but it definitely lowers their start rating.

The food was ok but the real disappointment was the service. And this was particularly surprising given the entire interior of the restaurant was empty and a few tables outside full. As per the menu, you must "request" the complimentary bread service. Which we did despite this nuisance step. And then we were never given the bread. I guess they bank on customers not stomaching the awkwardness of asking for bread twice. Given that the pasta was mediocre, I can do without a return visit.

Waiters could not really be bothered with us. We had to ask for everything. Pepper, more water , coffee, the bill. Asked how our meals were when we were finished. Your bathrooms were also filthy, broken toilet roll holder. Overall it was disappointing.
