“terrible place!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

I was really excited to try this place. It looked good from the outside, but the food was far from good. We (my bf and i) ordered pasta and it was terrible. It wasn't cooked properly and they are very cheap with the sauce. My bf barely tried his and didn't eat his plate. Also, the plates are a little pricey for what they are. Mines was 20$ for simple rose sauce and tortellini. I've been to many Italian restaurants, far better than this one and they are cheaper than this. This pasta literally looked and tasted like something you buy frozen at the grocery store. My advice, save your money and go somewhere else.

“Very disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

I was excited going into this restaurant, but wow what a surprise. The food was horrible, looked like something a kid would cook at home. I Ordered the pasta with the shrimps, when it came the pasta barely had any sauce, it was watery and not fully cooked. The shrimps tasted like they've been frozen for months, what a disappointment! I couldn't eat my plate that's how bad it was. Never going back again.

“High End.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

This is a higher end restaurant in a nondescript mall but the menu is quite extensive. The salads we enjoyed were wonderful and the service was very good. Highly recommended.

“Wow, delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

We went for my birthday lunch and wow I felt like we got spoiled. Our waitress Nathalie had really good service.

We started by going at the bread bar, and we ordered our first appetizer, which was the parmigiana fries. It was really good, and our entrées were delicious, mine was the duo molti fromaggi. The waiters came to sing happy birthday for me which made me super happy! We adored how a lot of things were included in the lunch, like a vegetable cream soup and a small dessert!
