Great visit! Had 2 kids who are 4 and 11 who enjoyed splitting a cannelloni dinner. My husband and I shared the seafood risotto and 10 oz ribeye. Both were delicious and big portions. Wine was a good value and chocolate mousse was tasty. Some...More

Decided to try this restaurant for Winterlicious and we weren't disappointed. We arrived about 15 minutes early for our reservations and were lucky enough to get seated earlier than our reservation, despite the packed house on a Saturday night at 7pm! The owner was the...More

We came out of an early matinee with my tweens at the Panasonic theatre wanting a nice lunch as a treat. This place looked great and had a good, affordable menu. Had to wait too long to be seated when there were many empty tables....More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

We did not stay to find out. We were standing in line for 10-15 minutes. No one from "front of house" even acknowledged us or anyone else in line. We did not stay. We will not return

Family owned Italian/Continental fusion restaurant. We have been a staple in the Yonge and Wellesley community for the past 13 years. Just recently we underwent a major renovation courtesy of the TV show Restaurant Takover on the Food Network. Ambiance is elegant and classy without being pretentious or stuck up. Our exceptionally-trained staff provide our guests with fast and efficient service while ensuring they feel relaxed and comfortable, never rushed. But most importantly, they make sure our guests feel welcome in our home.
