We enjoyed a pleasant dining experience at The Italian - satisfactory food, satisfactory service. We tried a variety of dishes, all of which were decent, but the standout was the liver pate with onion relish.

There's no doubt this place is bustling on weekends. Service was prompt. Food was hearty but quite basic like a lot of Byron food offerings.
