Was visiting my daughter at McMaster university and randomly chose a restaurant (with a little help from trip advisor) to have a nice dinner at. Very cozy restaurant with lots of little small cheerful rooms with lots of tables, not a big open concept restaurant. Wonderful ambiance and terrifically friendly staff. The non-vegetarian eaters in our party of 3 loved... More

Enjoyed appetisers of bruschetta, pizza and Stromboli while socialising with friends in the back patio. The bruschetta was warm but I like my bruschetta cold it was very tasty nonetheless. Stromboli was excellent. I'd go back.

My husband and I went here on a date. We had the Italian salad, arancini, Mediterranean pasta and tiramasu. The food was very good. We had dinner outside in the courtyard. It was lovely. The service was a bit slow at times and they only had preground parmesan and pepper. Come on! Even East Side Marios grinds it fresh. You... More

I had visited once before many years ago but I found this visit much more memorable! Great service, nice but simple surroundings. Shared appetizer of bruschetta with feta which was very tasty, and really enjoyed the baked ziti pasta with Parmesan sauce. Very large sized portions for those big appetites! Definitely will visit again.

My family has been going here for about five years. They've always been great to my family. They always cater to my son's allergies and are understanding when my youngest makes a mess. The staff are always polite and the food is always amazing. I recommend the ziti with white sauce or the eggplant parm

Our family of 7 went her for a birthday dinner on a Friday evening. We made reservations and we're glad we did because the restaurant was very busy. Our server was very friendly though not very attentive. Sadly the service was very slow. A long wait between drinks and ordering supper and an even longer wait to get our meals.... More

Last year, I chose this restaurant for my boyfriend's birthday and the food & service was amazing. So, inevitably, for my birthday, I chose this restaurant again. I was late to my party, and everyone had been there already. The manager came out and he's like "Where's the birthday girl?" And I was excited because he had been nice to... More

We have dined here for decades and absolutely love the pizza amongst all of the other great food. The taste and the quality of the food is top drawer and the portions are just right. They offer a nice and affordable wine list, imported beers and true authentic Italian cuisine that's very hard to find around town these days. Staff... More

We were with friends and we all enjoyed our meals 100%. They are happy to mix and match. My wife ordered a crab cake but wanted a side of vegetable....brought out an amazing looking plate with beautifully prepared mixed veggies. I had veal medallions with mixed vegetables and asked for a side of pasta. No problem. Service was as efficient... More

Went Sunday evening, made reservations in advance as there were 6 adults and 5 children in our group. We were greeted at the door and taken to a little private room in the back which was very nice considering the size of our group and this place is fairly small. There was only 2 waitresses on staff and that was... More
