I always love coming to this restaurant when visiting Victoria. Now this spot doesn't take reservations except for large groups. I had to wait 30 minutes for a table, but the wait was worth it. Both the food & service are excellent! Mind you, it...More

I had dinner here with a colleague. There was a line up out the door, so you tell it's a popular restaurant, being that it was only two of us, we got a table quickly. I had a delicious salmon with pesto shrimp and risotto....More

We were there early, 5. No problem getting a table... but less than 10 minutes later the place was at full capacity. I had the fettuccini bolognese; delicious. Delicate flavor of anise, garlic, tomotoe... Lovely. My mother-in-law had the veal chop: OUT OF THE PARK!...More

Hi Alanna, I suggest a Pagliacci's salad without cheese and maple balsamic vinaigrette and some extra chick peas. Or a pasta with just tomato sauce and vegetables (not on the menu but were happy to make it). Our bread in... More
