Good food, nice restaurant which is very quirky with its decorations. Went for my birthday. Quite disappointing that they have a surcharge for bringing a birthday cake.

I had gnocchi with mushrooms. A lot of mushrooms and not enough gnocchi. My wife had gnocchi with blue cheese sauce. Same issue. Both were too intensely strong yet lacked flavour, could not eat much of it. Daughter had the duck leg, and the flavour of the vegetables overpowered any taste of the duck. Bread with a little garlic butter... More

The place is nice and welcoming. The staff is kind and helpful. Unfortunately the food was mediocre. The idea of laying the confit duck on a bed of vegetables cooked in a tomato sauce is still making me cringe. The antipasto platter was nice

The pasta was good. Happy hour from 5-6 was great ($2 off beer and wine). Reasonably priced. Good service. There is no children's menu though.

6 year old restaurant with lots of character, both the building and the waiter. There would be good to have a fire place inside the house. Everything else is perfect. They serve both Italian and French menu. We had steak from the French menu. Medium well came up almost as well done. Starter duck liver, not as condensed as what... More

Beautiful food, served in gigantic portions. We shared bread and dips to start - one portion was more than enough for three of us. Home made dips were delicious. Mains all excellent too, and equally large by portion, Staff helpful and friendly.

Thank Chris B
