“It's just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

This restaurant needs a little shake up in the kitchen. Too many items are commercial, previously frozen or not prepared with care.

The seafood antipasto has oodles of delicious plump muscles, but the shrimp skewer is available in the freezer section of your supermarket and the calamari are deep fried and greasy. It is accompanied by a commercial Thai sauce that should simply be omitted.

The veal is generous and tender but both the Masala and con limone sauces were bland and floury. No zest whatsoever in the lemon sauce.

The pasta is good.

The wine list is great but only two by the glass.

The crème caramel is OK but again somewhat bland and could use a little jazzing up.

Service is somewhat amateurish. It is friendly and knowledgeable but cutlery from appetizer to main is put back on the table soiled.

On the up side, both food and you get what you pay for. Nice atmosphere and the wine is pretty tasty as well.

“Expect the Expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Although the quality of the fare is generally worth 4 or even 5 stars, this is a noisy place that serves pretty ordinary "Italian" food. If you want unusual Italian, hailing from diverse regions and encompassing unusual and unique dishes, look elsewhere. And, Michael, please train your servers in how to pronounce (and hear) your dishes' names said in Italiano (e.g., "cozze" is NOT pronounced, "cozy").

“Best Italian restaurant in Belleville.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

In fact, one of the better restaurants in Belleville. Service was excellent. Caesar salad very good. Pasta, with clams, in a red sauce was very good. Calamari could have been better. They are more like calamari served at a roadhouse restaurant. Battered, frozen and bagged, deep fried. Greasy.
But the piece de resistence was the tira mi su dessert. As good, or better, than any that I have tasted in Toronto or any other big city. Melt in your mouth deeeelicious.
I would definitely go back.
Suggestion. Spruce up the men's washroom. A few new tiles, some new paint and a good cleaning. This could become a great Italian restaurant.
