Upon arrival we waited outside for 30 minutes prior to being seated. There were many open tables but told they weren't seating cause the kitchen was closed. We wanted to leave but due to limited other options decided to be patient. After being seated the...More

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food in this restaurant. Ended up having lunch here by accident, but we'll go again when we're back in the neighbourhood. Pasta tasted the way it should!
