I have already rated this restaurant previously and given it high praise.
I have been there several times since, the last being yesterday for lunch with friends. I have not changed my opinion. However call me old fashioned if you like but I do not think the serving staff in an establishment like this should wear JEANS. A nice pair of black slacks would be appropriate.

Showed without a reservation, yet they seated us within 5 minutes. Atmosphere was excellent, service was great, and the food was fantastic. One of the best dining experiences anywhere...will definitely return, and highly recommend this restaurant.

Beautiful Italian Restaurant - we were told it was expensive, but not too, compared to Mtl or Tor - food was delicious (cioppino), chockfull of seafood, others had veal scallopini, seafood pasta, & linguini & Bolognese sauce - excellent. My lemon drop martini wasn't bad either!!

We had heard from a couple different people that the food was outstanding. Our friends were not wrong! Kenny waited on us, he was knowledgable, friendly and funny. He tried to help us decide on our dinners but with every description the choice got more difficult. I had the spinach ravioli, it was to die for! The linguini puttanesca was also outstanding. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, it's clean and simple decor are welcoming and relaxing. We will definitely go back often!
