Had a quick dinner here .... a very good pizza, and a top spaghetti bolognese. Was quiet when we arrived, but filled up nicely while we were there. The food is very good. The prices are reasonable and the wine is generously served by the...More

This busy restaurant shared with us their lovely home cooked pasta. The flavours were very good and servings generous, though a few herbs might have made the dishes of risotto with porcini mushrooms, alfredo spaghetti and gnocchi even better. If you don't mind waiting, it's...More

Waiting an hour for a tomato salad and a pizza. The waiter (who is also the owner) just opened the bottle of wine and put it on the table. Didn't ask if we want to try the wine nor filled the glasses. The food was...More

Quelques marches à grimper et vous voici totalement dépaysé. La vue des antipasti, fromages et vins d’Italie ouvrent l’appétit. Silvestro, en chef italien qui se respecte, veille jalousement à l’authenticité de sa cuisine. Les pâtes sont faites maison, les pizzas croustillantes, cuites au feu de bois et les produits tels fromages, prosciutto, huile d’olive et café importés. Cela donne une carte riche et variée à savourer dans l’atmosphère chaleureuse d’une salle toujours pleine d’une clientèle fidèle
