On a Tuesday night during a surpringly warm day. There was a nice breeze under the awning and the atmosphere was relaxed. The food was good, typically italian, not the canadian version of italian. Service was good and courteous. I'd go again.

Five of us had a late lunch at this little, slightly below street level restaurant. We all enjoyed our meals. The lasagne I had was out of this world! And I am particular since I married into an Italian family. Great place!
