We have dined here several times. This is a comfortable and casual Italian Restaurant that has been in the West End forever. We are always greeted with a friendly and accommodating spirit. The pasta dishes are always enjoyable and the prices are fair. I particularly like going there, enjoying a Caprese salad, pasta, red wine and listening to the piano... More

Three of us had dinner here recently. It was a miserable rainy evening, but inside the restaurant was warm and inviting. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was delicious. Great value for a great dinner.

The menu has 7 appetizers some hot some cold, 3 soups, 4 salads, 3 vegetarian dishes(although some of the other dishes may do for vegetarians too), 5 baked and stuffed pastas, a... More

We got a recommendation to come here by some locals. Food was wonderful, the service was awesome, and the ambiance was perfect for a quiet dinner. We sat by the piano, and the guy played great music that was not overwhelming or too loud. Our server called a cab for us, but it was not coming, so he went outside... More

Found this place by letting the availability of parking make the decision. My friend and I were the only customers, so the service was excellent, quick and friendly. We each had the 1/2 price pasta specials, which were enormous and tasty. The ambiance is upmarket and comfortable, and I could easily see coming back for an evening meal. Menu prices... More

This as it looks, an Italian Restaurant. Great pasta go value specials on Mondays and Tuesday though there's no piano player those nights. We both enjoyed our meals.

Small, modest but authentic. Good friendly service, nice ambience, especially with live piano. Food good (spoilt only by stale and stodgy profiteroles). Wine hugely overpriced but it is everywhere. Recommended.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
