We enjoyed a home cooked meal (beef shank and a pasta dish) with excellent desserts and an Ontario cabernet sauvignon. Friendly service. Rather dark little place, but OK.

We discovered this gem about three years ago. The chef buys his own ingredients and the menu changes. We had pork chops soaked in brine...outstanding. We have been here a half dozen times and never disappointed.
