“Best pizza - bar none”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

This pizza chef has placed nationally and internationally in competitions for best pizza and when you try it you'll see why. The dough is amazing and the ingredients are fresh and piled on - my favourite is the Chicken Fajita - spicy and the perfect balance of fabulous homemade tomato sauce and cheeses. Even the way they cut it is incredible and the pizza goes right out to the edges having very little crust. Yummy! - I'm getting hungry - I've had this particular pizza at least a dozen times since I discovered it several years ago.The pasta here and the service is also outstanding but the pizza is the best I've ever had!

“Excellent Food in Small Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

My wife and I have eaten at this quaint and bright Nelson restaurant about a dozen times. The food has always been excellent. Tonight's meal was the best: I had the fettuccine carbonara, my wife had an Italian garden pizza, and we shared a mista salad.
Small venue (with a deck in summer). Personable staff and always excellent food!

“Great spot!”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

We wanted some Italian food, and this place delivered. Food was great, timely, and wonderful to look at. There was one waitress in the house, and we felt well cared for. We watched the Olympics on the tv over the bar, and the sound was off and it didn't seem to be bothering anyone. Homemade pasta! Beer on tap! Best Caesar salad I've had in a while. On the downside, the dinner entrees don't come with a salad, that costs extra. For the price, a small salad should be included. But, overall, prices comparable with Olive Garden, but food is way tastier, and ambiance is small and cozy. I would go back for sure.

“OK!”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Nice decor and good service. TV at the small bar area does not make sense! Great for families with small children as the staff welcome all ages. Pasta was good and the wings were tasty but for $15.00 for 8 small wings they should have been special. Take them off the menu OR reduce the price! Will try them once more.

“ Great food”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 via mobile

Great food but the owner always has sports on the large tv above the bar which really is annoying and takes away from the experience.
