The food was good. Great tasting pizza and very authentic Italian dishes. Good experience taste wise. The part I found odd was that a friend of ours ordered a pizza (seen below) and it came uncut. When we asked about having it cut we were told by our server "this is how pizza is served it Italy - and you... More

Had some lovely food which was unfortunately overshadowed by some poor service. To start with the waiter took away our drinks menus and attempted to get us all to order the $13 glass of wine which (as a group of students) we would never have been able to afford, and we had to ask quite a few times to get...

Popped in for a quiet bite...noon on a Wednesday. Not busy at all. Good service and special lunch special sandwich quite good. Could have used a bit more meat and perhaps a sauce to enhance the flavour as a little bland .. Great location.

Went very early, as we had a two year old with us, so it was quiet. Food and service were fine but we live on the Mediterranean coast so we like somewhat crunchier pizza.

Sophisticated white decor, excellent Neapolitan-style pizza, always fresh-tasting. Great location just off Kensington Road.

Nice restaurant with very friendly and helpful staff, they offer Italian style Woodford oven pizza. It was tasty but I thought it could be a bit more crusty like it is in Italy. The calamari fritti were really great and delicious. The seating and atmosphere is really nice. Maybe come again but then try something else than pizza .

We have been regulars at this restaurant since they opened. The pizzas are very flavourful, clearly made with fresh, good-quality ingredients. The location is very convenient. We also like the all-white colour scheme, which is distinctive and stylish.

I took my wife for dinner here as our date night, also visiting with a couple friends of ours. We drove up from Red Deer and were looking forward to a nice visit. For starters the server was very attentive and took care of us right away. I recommend a reservation if you are visiting on a Friday or Saturday... More
