Dinner for two on a Saturday evening. One had the chicken parmigiana and the other had the seafood linguini. Service was efficient; the food was fresh and flavourful. One of the best Italian food experiences I’ve had in a while.

Good downtown location. Nice decor. Service was excellent, albeit a little slow. We finished our first (3) bottle of wine before we received our appetizers or main meal. Not sure if this was intentional or not, but we had to get more wine for our...More
